Questions & Answers

I will be arriving earlier/later than the stated check-in time. Can I still check in?

I will be arriving earlier/later than the stated check-in time. Can I still check in?

Usually this is not a problem; you can arrange for an after-hours check-in with most hotels. However, you should always confirm with the hotel. You can use the "Special Requests" box in the booking process to inform them of your estimated arrival time in writing. It's important to remember that the property can't always accommodate these requests. It's always best to check with the property directly and in advance to avoid confusion. You can contact the hotel directly by calling them, the local telephone number you can get from Nehow's Local Guide after you finish the booking.

I want to check out after the stated check-out time. What should I do?

I want to check out after the stated check-out time. What should I do?

A late check-out can only be arranged with the hotel and usually depends on availability at the time of your stay. You can ask about the possibility at the front desk upon arrival.

  • Boutique hotel with good location
    Squirreloncrack
    Singapore, Singapore | Oct 31, 2017 | Trip type: Friends getaway

    Pros:
    # Location is great although the hotel is an alley off the main street - its near multiple restaurants, roadside eateries, and its stone throw away from old city.
    # The decor is good and for those who live for Instagram, the hotel will provide a few good opportunities.

    Cons:
    # Hot water was an issue and WIFI was not great - this would have weighed heavily against the hotel if we were living here for longer than 2 days 1 night
    # No staff during the two days could converse in English - this made ordering cab, restaurant recommendations very difficult

    Given the location and overall cleanliness, I would recommend the hotel. My only recommendation would be to really get the directions right - the lanes are not well marked.

  • my stay at the city old story Inns

    Mandalay, Myanmar | May 29, 2017 | Trip type: Couples

    we stayed there for 2 nights and had a great time there.. walked around the ancient city and also enjoyed the local foods.. we met Mr Lee who worked for the hotel, he was nice to show us around for a day trip in a reasonable price.... I requested him to take me to a trustworthy shop where I could buy the real Jade item as there are many shops selling fake items...(its good to know where to find a good shop)!.. thus we would like to recommend people to use his service.. tel: 13508826030 Mr Lee...

    it would be better if u can communicate with him in Chinese.. a good guy..!

    Enjoy your stay there..

  • Great place; friendly

    Dec 31, 2016 | Trip type: Family

    Greatly enjoyed my stay here; a very quirky, friendly boutique hotel which is quite comfortable, if basic, and very conveniently located for visits to the old city. Stayed two nights and would like to have stayed longer; it has a very comfortable vibe and the rooftop lounge which is open to the sky looks like a wonderful place to just chill. Unfortunately there is not much of a view from this property.

    Some minor things to take note of:

    (i) There are up to four floors in this property, but no lifts.
    (ii) We stayed in winter and wish we didn't have to leave the tap running just to get it hot enough to shower. Also would have liked a shower curtain - bathroom setup is a little awkward and I don't think the wooden table on which the sink is mounted will last long, it is difficult not to get it wet.
    (iii) Only one armchair in the room (albeit it is a little small for two) and you can easily lounge in the common area.
    (iv) My recommendation would be that instead of getting the hotel breakfast, just try the places just nearby.

    Traditional hospitality. Picked up from train station for free and driven there by one of the nicest person you can find.Greeted on arrival by 3 of the hotel staff and quick check in. Luggage promptly taken to our rooms. Breakfast on the light side.

    总体来说不错,之前不知道客栈会派车到火车站来接,这是个小小的惊喜。房间不算大,不过装修风格比较有特色。被子和床都很柔软,睡起来比较舒服。酒店提供早餐,不算太好不算太差,没有什么太多好说的。
