THE HOTEL

My car reaches the hotel where I want to put up.

I get out and go to the hotel office.

Here I ask if they can give me any accomodation.

«Certainly», answers the clerk, «we have got several rooms free».

«Would you like a suite or a single room?» he continues.

I say I should like a bedroom with a bath-room attached.

The clerk says he can give me such a room on the third floor.

I ask about the price of the room.

He informs me of it and soon everything is settled.

I hand in my passport, fill in an arrival form and get the key of my room.

Next I ask the hotel porter to carry my luggage to the room.

He does as requested.

I look at my room.

I like it very much.

It is very comfortable.

I can have a fine rest here.

I ring for the chambermaid and inquire about the meals at the hotel restaurant.

Next I obtain information about the hairdresser, about where I can have my boots cleaned, etc.

She answers all my questions.

There is a lot of time before dinner and so I settle down quietly to rest.
