訂了酒店晚餐,質數不錯,但當中發生了小插曲,令我覺得踩中了地雷。晚餐地方中有一個放置飲品的地方,當中有水, 汽水, 咖啡及酒類都放到共兩張枱上,枱的付近都只有日本, 日本漢字,我只能看懂漢字是介紹飲品名稱, 眼見各人都紛紛去添飲,我們一家添了兩杯啤酒及兩杯汽水﹐突然間有服務員過來說要收飲品費用, 我跟他說出面没寫收費﹐入坐時也没說. 他只說一句對不起, 是要付費的. 没辦法, 我們的確喝了, 也得付費, 但這樣安排好像是要讓客人踩進陷井似的, 感覺不老實! The dinner is not bad, but there was sth. happened made me feel this hotel is not honest. In the dinner place there are 2 drinks bar, soft drinks, coffee, water and wine all put there, and there are only some japanese wording and chinese words, i can read chinese one which is introducing each drinks. Al together we took 2 beers and 2 soft drinks, when we finished, a waitress came and said the drink is not free only water there is free, which water and beer are put together in the same table. I was surprised and i told the waitress there is no sign said the drinks is charged, and even we get in no one introduce the drink charges to us. Indeed we drank it we have to pay, but I feel like being trapped, and the hotel is dishonest. Everyone please be aware of all service provided to avoid trapped!!!
