I beg to differ, and I would like to repeat a point that I had raised
on Meta yesterday. I think we all agree that travel guides are all
about POV? Choose this hotel, while better keep away from that one is
a case in point. This would hardly go with any guideline for
neutrality of sorts. Such information should indeed be excluded. If a
travel guide is part of Wikimedia it should include verifiable
information only. This excludes any recommendations that are not
well-based on facts. In Wikimedia projects we deal with facts. That's
what makes our credibility.
