The authoress of the paper tries to examine one of the most essential legal issues, namely the civil liability of a hotel for things carried in by hotel guests. The aim of the paper is to establish whether and to what extent the existing legal regulations influence the safety of the tourist's luggage and what rights the tourist has when the luggage is lost. The most important thing is to examine the issue through the existing legal regulations in Poland including the rulings and the views of the doctrine and by adopting the interpretation which would enable the protection of a consumer- a weaker party of a legal relationship. As a result of the conducted analysis she states that in the legal sphere the safety of the tourist's luggage is regulated by property liability of hotel entrepreneurs for things carried in by hotel guests. Imposing liability for destroying or losing things of hotel guests on hotel entrepreneurs gives guests a huge amount of legal security.
