          Hello, I'm coming to the hotel on August and would like to ask you please "Are dogs and other pets allowed to stay in the hotel or there are special rooms for them?" I made a reservation in your hotel after I read "Pets are not allowed", so I'm asking to make sure if pets including dogs are allowed to stay in the hotel??
