Hotel or rented accomodation which has a catalogue of disasters associated with it, especially if it includes obnoxious staff, etc.

Named after the classic 1970s comedy series starring John Cleese.
The new student accomodation opened for Leeds University students in 1993 was so bad, the students quickly dubbed it "Fawlty Towers".
