1. What time can I check in?

Check-in time varies from hotel to hotel and region to region. Most of the international hotels have a standard check in time at14:00 or 15:00.

2. Can I request an early check-in?

Early check in is not guaranteed by Guesto or Hotel, but our Operations team can assist in booking you a night of pre accommodation at the same hotel.
If you don't wish to pay for the extra night, you can try your luck locally (they may let you in early if the room is vacant) or you can store your luggage at their lobby without any cost.

3. Are airport transfers included in the trip price? If not, how much will a taxi cost from the airport? If not, how do I get to and from airports?

Airport transfers are not usually included in the trip price. It is an extra cost. Only some hotels provide complimentary airport shuttle or airport transfers. Here, we often indicate the price you can expect to pay for a taxi from the airport to the hotel. The cost of the transfer will comparatively be more expensive than a taxi, but it is important to remember that you are paying for a private service and a trusted driver who will offer the security travellers often desire when they arrive into a foreign country.
