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.

  • Room is huge

    Ramat Gan, Israel | Sep 9, 2018 | Trip type: Business

    The room is huge, I think the whole team can stay in one room. Location is good, 40 mins to the train station. But you can’t have WiFi access if you don’t have local sim I asked the reception that usually you need your room number and your last name then you can get the WiFi access, then she said the rule is changed, you need to have a local sim to get the access code. If I don’t have? Go to buy a sim ‍♀️‍♀️ I don’t know if other hotels in Shanghai is same like this.

  • Great hotel close to everything

    I travelled here with my father to see Pt Adelaide play Gold Coast Suns. Really glad we picked this hotel- had a really extensive breakfast and helpful staff. It was also an easy walking distance from hotels, bars and the train station.

  • good location, lack of attitude
    Seoul, South Korea | Aug 25, 2018 | Trip type: Family

    plus-good location. very close to the main streets and walking distance to the bund. many good restaurants nearby. spacious room.

    minus - takes long~ time to check in. I arrived at the hotel 1:40 and the staff said my room would be ready at 2:30. So, I asked the conciergye to keep our bags and went out to look around the city. and came back to the hotel at around 4:00. and another front desk staff told me that I had not checked in so needed to do check-in process from the beginning again. In the end, I and my family could get rooms completely at over 6:00p.m. I understand they could have been busy that day, but the thing was their attitude to the guest in this situation. I still remember the attitude of the front desk staff who was charge of me at first. He told me back when I showed my unpleasantness that he had said 'the room was dirty' like he had not done anything wrong and I was rather captious. I didn't say back to him about what he had said rooms would be done at 2:30 because I didn't want to ruin my trip with family.

    Maybe I could be just a bad case. So, if you don't expect the service, it's the good place to get around the city. I might have expected too much.

    플러스-위치좋음. 난징동루가 바로 코앞이고 번드까지 도보가능. 주변에 맛있는 음식점도 많음. 방 넓음.

    마이너스-서비스는 좋지 않음. 1시40분쯤 호텔도착. 방이 더럽다며 2시30분쯤 방이 준비된다고 하여 컨시어지에 짐 맡기고 돌아다니다가 4시쯤 돌아옴. 방은 여전히 준비되어 있지 않고 심지어 체크인도 안되어 있다며 다시 체크인 절차를 밟음. 방2개를 예약했었는데 결국 오후 6시쯤 일행 모두 입실가능하였음. 문제는 체크인 문제에 대해 불편함을 표현했을 때 프론트직원의 태도임. 자기가 방이 더럽다고 말하지 않았냐며 나의 항의가 부당하다는 듯 나에게 소리침. 가족여행이었기 때문에 더 따지지는 않았지만...아주 불쾌하였음. 그 이후 불편한 사건이 더 있었지만 굳이 말하지 않겠음.
    서비스를 기대하지 않으면 위치는 거의 완벽한 숙소임.

  • Great Location. Excellent standard. Average staff.

    London, United Kingdom | Aug 15, 2018 | Trip type: Family

    Grand atrium lobby. Reception staff were somewhat Cold. Room was really really good two king beds / desk / arm chair + footrest. TV. Excellent bath / shower / toilet. Lovely towels and extras. Spa & Gymn OK. Had to pay for billiards ?. Swimming pool was inside, straight & boring (but expected for city centre). Location was 5-10 minute walk from the Bund / River. Adjacent to a nice square & Nanjing road shopping. Food was bland & boring. Beware crowds & crowds of people.

  • Incredible Hotel but Unfriendly Staff
    South Tangerang, Indonesia | Aug 7, 2018 | Trip type: Family

    We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and since we were travelling with young kids, as soon as we arrived at this hotel the kids starts running around and they being warned not to run by the hotel officer there.They guarded and stayed near them so they couldn't run. So I guess this hotel is not suitable for family with young children. I also disappointed with their service at the reception desk to their guests which they didn't show their nice hospitality (no smile and not friendly) in such great looking hotel with a fairly expensive price. But their supervisor at the front office can solve the problem with SMILE. The room is spacious, nice and clean. To come back to this hotel with such experience on the first day...I guess I will find another hotel nearby.
