着いたら営業してないって言われてビックリした‼️

"到着したら、アルバイトさん1人で何やら大掃除中。 「電話連絡しているはずですが、12月初めに閉店します。 もう営業はしていません。」と言われ愕然としました。電話連絡は無かったです!「同じ価格帯の所を探して紹介しますから、予約自体はご自分でお願いします。」と。着いた日は土曜日で、難しい状況でしたが、何とか2.5倍の料金でHotel the Gateに予約でき、泊まる所があってホッとしました!翌日以降はK2ホテル、¥500高い所に3泊でき助かりました。大阪から熊本まで語学ボランティアに来て、集合時間に間に合うか心配しましたが、間に合い良かったです。 しかし、アメニティの無い当ホテルに泊まる事になっていたので、タオルを余分に入れ、スリッパや寝間着も入れていましたが、両ホテルともしっかりアメニティが整っていたので、荷物が多くなった分なんだか損した気分になりました。 ..."…"
