Day 34: Pont-a-Mousson
Remember when I said that the large hotel chains stay open through the day. Well . . . Found an exceptional to the rule today. Kyriad is a large European chain and the one in Pont-a-Mousson was closed when I got there around 3 pm.
They have an ATM looking machine sitting outside the door that you can use to check-in. Unfortunately it did not recognize my Booking.com reservation.
I was able to call the hotel’s central number via Viber Out from the McDonald’s next door. Nope, she saw no reservation for me but happy to book one. After which I cooled my heels at Donald’s with a McFlurry.
The hotel actually opened a few minutes early. Got checked in. The outside of the hotel looks nicer than the rooms. And what the heck is that smell? And once again a lot of Esso paraphanelia.
