What are the different room types?

Twin/Double Standard: This is a room to sleep two adults with either a twin or double bed. If three adults stay in the room there may be three single beds or two single beds and a fold out bed for the third adult, or a double bed and a single bed. If two adults and one or two children stay in this room type the usual configuration is a double or twin bed with a fold out bed for the children.

Double Room: This is normally a room with one double bed but in certain countries or individual hotels, a double room can comprise of two single beds. Spain and Greece would be examples of this.

Twin Room: This is normally, but not always, a room with two single beds.

Triple Room: This room will sleep three people. The beds are not guaranteed to all be single beds. There may be a fold out bed for the third person.

Quad Room: This room will sleep two adults and two children, some properties will allow a total of four adults. It may not be larger than a twin or double room so when the room is fully occupied it may be cramped.

Family Room: This room will usually accommodate two adults and two or three children. When the room is fully occupied it may be cramped.

Standard Room: This usually applies to USA bookings. The rooms usually comprise of two double beds but this cannot be guaranteed.

Single Room: This will accommodate one person only and may be a smaller room than the other rooms in the same property.

Double or Twin for Single Use: This is a room for two people which is bookable for one person. Bedding will only be provided for one person.

Studio: This is one open plan room which combines a kitchenette, living space and bedroom. The room could contain either beds or sofa beds.

1 Bed Apt: This will accommodate up to three or four people with twin/double beds in a separate bedroom and a sofa/sofa bed(s) in the living area.

2 Bed Apt: This will accommodate up to five or six people with twin/double beds in two separate bedrooms and a sofa/sofa bed(s) in the living areas.

Superior Room: This room will be superior to a standard room in the same property. The additional features which make it superior will differ from property to property.

Promo/Promotional/Run of House: These are rooms allocated upon your arrival at the accommodation. These rooms may often be smaller than the standard rooms within the accommodation and may not be equipped with all the facilities offered within the standard rooms. As these rooms are allocated upon arrival we cannot guarantee the size, facilities or location within the accommodation of these room types.

Annex Room: This room type will be located outside of the main hotel building. These separate buildings may be next to the main hotel, in its grounds or in some instances a short walk away.

You may be offered different variations of room type e.g. - the same property may offer: 1 bedroomed apartment (standard), 1 bed apt 1/2 PAX, 1 bed apt 2/3 PAX, 1 bed apt 3/4 PAX (PAX is an abbreviation for passengers). The rooms will usually be the same size so the more occupants there are the more cramped the room will seem.
