Do you mean that you called via your laptop? Did you bring an ethernet cable to get internet? I thought I read somewhere that that was the only way, that you can't easily get wi-fi at the hotel. But i may have gotten that totally wrong.
there is no wi-fi at the hotel.
i did call via my laptop. there is an extremely short ethernet cable included in the room (in my room at least), and i used that to get connected. i wanna say that it was possibly hiding in one of the drawers or something? i can't quite remember. (neither i no my roommate brought an ethernet cable in any case, so it was either provided or left by a previous guest.)
Thanks. I suppose there's nothing stopping me calling/emailing the hotel to ask about it.
Edit: Thanks word. Yeah, I really had no intention of bringing or buying one, but it would be nice to be able to get a quick call in.
