Many hotels ask that you call in advance as they may be busy & therefore closed to non-residents. This particularly likely over holidays & long weekends. NB Most do not speak English, so perhaps ask tourist info at the station or city hall to call for you.

Most hotels accept last bathers 30-60 minutes before ‘closing time’.
