I booked a room with this hotel through a hotel booking website and soon the manager of the hotel himself called me to offer a good rate if only i canceled the booking through the website and made the arrangement directly with the hotel. And so i agreed to his arrangement and canceled the my online bookings.
Now, just a few days before the day i check in. I hate myself for forgotten to ask for the hotel's telephone number and so i searched through the internet. Found the number is a cellphone number.. Unless it is a guesthouse or budget arrangement, i never really know a hotel having a cellphone as their main contact number.
For the whole day i tried to call but unable to get through.. not until late in the evening. The hotel reception seemed to be in dazed; they needed time to look for my reservation and will contact me later for the confirmation.
Until now, i'm still waiting for the call.
I think, i'll give up and will book with a regular place to crash this weekend.
