American asking questions about European hotels . . .

25 May 2010 WPBFLRob said

I've seen one or two pictures of hotel rooms contikis have stayed in during their European travels - they look VERY different from most American hotels. A few hopefully-not-too-stupid questions:<BR><BR>Do most of the hotel rooms have a clock / alarm clock?<BR>How about a/c?<BR>Iron and ironing board?<BR>I plan to do some wash in the bathroom sink every few days - do the bathrooms have shower bars I can drape clothes on to dry?<BR><BR>Thanks for your help!<BR>Rob

    some have alarm clocks, but not all, bring your own.

    Most do not have AC, especially in the more northern areas of europe.

    I"ll go with a no on the iron and ironing board – try folding tissue paper into your clothes to prevent wrinkles.

    Most have shower bars, but not all. I would bring some string to hang clothes on.

    right i pretty much agree with the previous post. we had no alarm clocks in any place we stayed – we used our mobile phones.

    No air con

    No iron or ironing board

    only one hotel i was in had a rail.
