The Holy Grail of Hotel Rooms

Any overseas trip requires a level of planning.  Overseas with a baby just requires that little extra bit of layering...right?

Searching for the holy grail of accommodation - great location, reasonable tariff, spacious rooms, cots, tea/coffee facilities, mini-bar fridge, bath, family-friendly staff!  Probably not a challenge in most cities in Australia.  Add Europe to the mix, and Monty Python's eternal search comes to mind.

Appears that most Europeans are happy to accommodate their tourists in spatially-challenged rooms. It is preferable that guests have a certain level of fitness and flexibility that ensures that entering their accommodation is facilitated by a triple twist, back flip, 1/2 somersault in the pike position to get from the door to the bed and another similar feat from the bed to the bathroom!

  1. Ahhh...yes. I remember the cupboards that I have stayed in while in London...don't know what I am going to do when I travel when I am older and can't leap over beds etc.
    You are going to have some challanges this trip...however, you are not visiting London - so maybe this is a plus.
