We arrived at the hotel about 15 minutes before check-in time and were greeted by a seemingly friendly male receptionist who told us our room would not be ready for another half hour or so. I said fine, then he proceeded to try to sell us an “upgrade” which would include

Dear Bas T, breakfast is from 7am - if you leave early we can arrange a breakfast box (yogurt, fruit, orange juice, croissant, jam & melba toast). Please let us know if you need further assistance. Looking forward to welcoming you soon. Kind regards, Valentina
