I recently went to another country. No, it’s not someone who speaks non-English, and it’s not someone I’ve never been to. This is another topic in another whole article. I went to England, for the first time in history, not with relatives or friends, but in a hotel. This hotel is located in a big city, close to the railway station and main attractions, as well as beautiful and clean facilities. That being said, I did notice something different from staying in a typical North American hotel.
The first is that the room really makes good use of all the space. Everything has a place, everything is in its place. They use large framed artwork instead of a headboard, which can double as the headboard and visual focus of the room.
Since I want to transfer from one voltage to another, I brought an adapter plug with me, but found that I don’t need it to charge my phone because I only need to use the charging station on the wall. However, I find it strange that the bathroom is only separated from the main living space of the room by a glass sliding door. It is not locked or even reaches the wall completely, so there is always a gap. In North America, we are trained to enter the bathroom, close the heavy wooden door, lock it, and then conduct business. That’s not the case there. As a friend pointed out, there are no exhaust fans and no windows. The toilet also has two flushing options-I will leave it to you to find out.
Then there is organized supply, or lack. In North American hotels, the rooms and bathrooms are usually equipped with paper towels, but not on the other side of the pond. If you travel there, please bring your own!
The biggest difference I found is that an umbrella is allocated in the closet in each room. The note above says that you are welcome to use it during your stay, but leave it in your room when you leave. Never seen it in a North American hotel before!
This is a lovely hotel in a vast area of a bustling European city. The trip was wonderful, the bed was comfortable and a little sweet. Even the staff are helping as much as possible.
