    I'd assume your airline suggested this as a money saver Not recommending it for its quality. I'd strongly suggest you look elsewhere.

    Hi reception closes at 8pm. You will need to inform them of your late arrival and they will arrange for a key to be left for you or may even meet you at reception at that time.
