    二泊したかったものの五山の送り火の影響からか宿泊できず、次の日一日だけ宿泊しました。 が、一日だけでよかったと思っています。 こちらはチェックインが16時以降とのことだったので荷物だけでも置きたくチェックイン時間前に寄らせていただきましたが、玄関を入っても何の反応がなく、こちらを見つめていた他のステイしている方に話しかけようとしたところその人がどうやら受付の人のようでした。その方は終始笑顔を作ることもなく、むしろチェックイン時間前に来たことに不満があるようでした。 一応その際は荷物だけでもと断り、置かせていただいたのですが、受付にて他の海外の方に対しては笑顔で元気よく話している姿を見てここは海外の方専用だったのかなと思いました。 その後用事を済ませ16時を回ったことを確認し、再度チェックインを受付にてお願いしたのですが、相変わらずにこりともされませんでした。泊まるにあたり必要な書類に情報を埋め提出したのですが、受付の方から今度はどこの部屋に予約したかを聞かれました。自分は和室ドミトリーで予約していたことを伝えたのですが、受付の方から500円プラスで男ドミトリーに移りませんかと尋ねられました。なんでも海外の方が8ベッド中7つを使用しており、男ドミトリーのほうは6ベッド中1人しか泊まっていないのでとのことだったのですが、特に英語に抵抗もなかったため気にならない旨を伝えたところ『お客さまがでなく、海外の方が。。。』と言われました。 服装に汚れや匂いといったこともまずなかったと思いますし、なぜそのような対応をされたのか理解できませんでしたが、もうこのゲストハウスは日本人のお客に対してそのような態度しかできないのであろうと割り切り、男ドミトリーに+500円で移ることを承諾しました。 ゲストハウスとしては綺麗で使い勝手はいいとは思います。しかし、それは人が泊まる宿としては当たり前のことと自分は考えていますし、このような対応はゲストハウスとして理解できません。 自分の時は男性の方が受付をしていたのですが、他の方とはことなり、まだ女性のほうが対応はまともだったように感じました。 I don't wanna stay here again. A receptionist guy always talked with me without smile but for foreigner, he talked with smile:( Additionally when I went there before check in time just to leave my baggage. He...More
