I arrived before the check in time The receptionist told me my room is ready and I can check in, didn't mention any extra charges. When I was leaving they wanted me to pay for early check in, about 50% of the daily room rate (it wasn't mentioned anywhere). They also didn't want to give me a receipt, I had to insist. They told me that if I want a receipt I have to pay 10% extra for VAT, had to show them my booking.com confirmation that VAT was included. I contacted booking.com support and they helped me but it was very unpleasant. The hotel is undergoing renovations and is noisy and dusty and the shower in my room was broken. The access to the hotel is via a small and dirty alley, dark at night and unpaved.
