    Check-in Time

    I have read a translation of "check in time" (as in at a hotel) as

    время, когда можно заселиться в номер

    If that is correct, what is the grammatical explanation for "в номер"? Why not "в номере"? The reflexive verb is confusing me.
    Thanks.

    Заселиться "Куда?" - В номер...
    Находиться "Где?" - В номере....

    Does it make any sense now?

    Re: Check-in Time

    В номер - to the room (into the room)
    В номере - in the room

    заселиться в номер = lodge oneself into the room
    (reflexive: заселиться = заселить себя = lodge oneself)
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?
