do they allow early check in,say 9 am.
if yes how much.
They are generally very helpful and polite. We are anal on soft beds and they allowed us to look at them prior to checking in.. Obviously if it's really busy you may need to wait. But yes 9am when everyone is checking out you are probably pushing it anywhere in the world
As of my experience, they do not allow early check-in. Was asked to wait till 1:30pm
Yes, if room available...not sure about price. However, many seem to leave luggage with front desk without incident to return later.
I was able to check in an hour early because my room was ready - it was low season though. If you cannot check in early they will store your bags so you go out and explore a bit until your room is ready.
It depends on the occupancy at the time and specially their mood.
