Concierges assist guests of the hotel in many different ways, from solving problems to finding restaurants, shops, salons, and subways. We interact with dozens to hundreds of guests every day, arranging various services. I most like interacting with guests from other countries, opening the city and all its treasures to them. WE are their key to the city in many ways.
