Next is a conversation about Fasilitas Hotel or in English ‘Hotel Facility’. As usual please try to read every sentence loudly and slowly. The conversation is between Tony, a British man and a Hotel Receptionist. Let’s follow the conversation.

Resepsionis : Selamat malam, dengan resepsionis.
Tony : Ya, mbak. Kamar saya panas. AC nya rusak.
Resepsionis : Baik, Pak, teknisi kami akan ke kamar Bapak. Mohon Tunggu sebentar.
Tony : Baik, Terima kasih
Resepsionis : Sama-sama, Pak.

After practice, now I will introduce some vocabularies and phrases related to the today’s topic.
You may repeat it.  

Kamar saya panas: My room is hot
Pendingin ruangan/AC nya rusak : The Air Conditioner is broken
Teknisi kami akan ke kamar Bapak : Our technician will check it to your room.
Mohon tunggu sebentar : Wait a moment
Panas : Hot
Tidak panas : Not hot
Toilet : Toilet
Air : Water
Kamar mandi : Bathroom

Now here are other examples to express complaint. 

– Toilet di kamar saya rusak. Air di kamar mandi saya tidak panas.
(The toilet in my room is broken. The water heater in my room does not work.)
– Maaf, lantai kamar saya basah. (Excuse me, the floor in my room is wet.)
– Permisi, tempat tidur kamar saya bunyi. (Excuse me, my bed is squeaky.)
– Mobil antar jemput terlambat. (The shuttle car is late.)
– Staf hotel tidak ramah. (Hotel staff is not friendly.)  

Readers, let’s practice again to master the conversation.

Resepsionis : Selamat malam, dengan resepsionis.
Tony :  Ya mbak. Kamar saya panas. AC-nya rusak.
Resepsionis : Baik , Pak. Teknisi kami akan ke kamar Bapak. Mohon ditunggu sebentar.
Tony : Baik, terima kasih.
Resepsionis : Sama-sama, Pak
