If a friend asked me to go to his house at 6am, and, to me, it is too early, is it correct to tell him "6am is not a good time, as it is too early for me."?

Thanks.

That's fine ... unless, of course, he's devilishly handsome and available - in which case I'd say that was wrong. Whistle

"It's not a good time [for something]" is quite common, and means exactly what it says.
