    Hello. I have a reservation for this hotel for 2 nights in March but in the reservation paper I need to print there is something that worries me. It says that there could be some charges for an early check-out and we will need to check out early (7 am in the morning). Does early checkout mean not on the day when you are supposed to check out but earlier date or it's meant as a certain time of check out (from my small experience I know the ordinary check-out time starts at 10 am).So in this case I want to ask if we will be supposed to pay something for checking-out early in the morning (of course we are gonna warn the staff prior to our arrival for those plans we have. And something else last but not least - do they have any e-mail cause I couldnt find any contact details rather than mobile phones left. Thank you for your replies in advance. Ivan, Bulgaria :)
