ACCOMMODATIONS

At about 10 o'clock in the morning Mr.Bunin arrived at Traveller's Inn. A hotel-porter took his suitcase and showed him to the reception-desk. Bunin told the receptionist about that he had reserved a room a few days before. The receptionist checked that and said that they could let him have a nice room on the third floor. After that the receptionist gave Mr. Bunin a form and asked him to fill it in.

Mister Bunin wrote his name, address, nationality and occupation on the form and gave it back. Then the porter took the key to Bunin's room and they went to the lift. In a minute they were on the third floor. The porter unlocked the door, brought in the suitcase and asked if that was all. Bunin thanked him, gave him a tip and the porter went out.
