In Shanghai I always stay at the 扬子江 / Renaissance at Yan'An Lü.
I love this place.
Only thing during this business trip was: I was assigned a very noisy room; I never experienced that before.
I am one of those people who sleeps with two pillows: on below and one on the head (yes, I know earplugs would be better...).
Liking the placing, thinking it was me, I tried to sleep the first night.
I did not.
So I asked for a room-switch and - without any fuss, kind help, no questions, etc., - and with help of somebody - I was assigned another room.
I immediately recognized the quietness I am used to in there and finally had a good night of sleep.
(the room however was two beds and not king size, but I don't mind if there is no other choice; I like the extra "sorting space").
My questions are:
- what are my rights when a room is "too noisy"?
(this is very subjective; I usually wake to the sound of the central heating switching on in my own house);
- should I tip the guy/gal who helps me change rooms (carrying my bag and some hangered clothes), and then if so: how much?
