A particular female victim found our that her earrings, necklace and money was missing when she returned.
She told The Sun: “To pay a fortune for somewhere fancy and secure and have someone walk in your room is very disturbing.
“The police told us they saw two men with a bag on the roof on CCTV cameras but they could not identify them.
“They said three other robberies were also reported. A Moroccan guy in the next room told me he had his watch stolen.”

“There is evidence to suggest an experienced gang was responsible.”
