Hotels are places where you can stay on a short-time basis.

These commercial establishments provide meals, lodging and other services (=facilities).

Hotels must have at least 6 letting bedrooms, and half of them must have private bathrooms.

– One-star hotels provide a limited number of amenities and services.

– Five-star hotels offer a wide range of guest services in a luxurious environment. They also provide excellent cuisine (table d’hote and a la carte).

No matter which category they rank in, each and every hotel should be clean and neat.
