A suction cup, like what you would use to stick something to a car window.

Alternatively take the trap off and poke a screw driver up.

Is it one of those push down plugs. When mine jams down, just get a large flat head screwdriver and either a quick push down. Or tap the screwdriver with the back of your hand or a small hammer. Should pop back up. If it's not one of those I don't know.

I did this in a hotel once. I left for the day still fretting about it, not able to enjoy myself, but when I came back someone had sorted it. So I suppose: ask someone in the hotel cleaning trade.

This works. I have successfully used the suction cup that comes with halogen downlighter bulbs to do this very task.

I think if there’s a danger you’re going to damage it by trying to fix it, I’d be inclined to just report it to reception in the morning.

At the moment it looks like their problem to solve, and it’s probably stuck due to too much gunk underneath it. But if you break it more permanently by trying to help, it might become a bigger issue.

Unfortunately it was caused by the handyman in charge of looking after such issues in our flat. Have emailed the landlady but it's just a bit of a pain. Might try a flat screwdriver and see if we have one thin enough to get it open.

The answer is above, take the trap off and poke an any size screwdriver up from below, you will not get it out from above.

Try using a vacuum cleaner hose to literally suck it up.

Looking at those pictures, you, or somebody has had a few wacks at it already. Also see chrome platting chips there... tut tut tut!

As others have said, there is no way this is coming back up from above. Only pushing up from below will work, and what could possibly go wrong doing that???

Seriously I have had a similar issue. The metal rod underneath that pushes it up had disintegrated but I managed to get a flat headed screwdriver in to twist it then pulled it up with pliers.

This is what happens if you well endowed and use the sink for a toilet. I hope you have learnt your lesson
