[~DETAIL_TEXT] => 00:02
hey there fellow travelers mark here
00:05
with Walters world it wouldn't Salzburg
00:07
Austria a great place to go to and we're
00:09
staying the wolf dietrich hotel the
00:11
hotel with obvious is some pretty cool
00:12
design in their rooms and things like
00:14
that what I thought I'd give you is
00:16
basically what you should know about
00:18
European hotels before you come to
00:21
Europe because I'll tell you the Holiday
00:23
Inn Express that you get in Champaign
00:25
Illinois is not the same as the hotel
00:27
you're getting in a Salzburg Austria so
00:29
we're going to do is going to go through
00:30
some of the basic differences so you're
00:32
kind of prepared for your hotel stay in
00:35
Europe okay now I will preface this my
00:38
hotels are pretty different throughout
00:40
Europe but there are some consistencies
00:42
usually aside from this room usually the
00:45
hotels are very small they're much small
00:47
and you have in the US and it's a lot
00:48
more intimate setting so just be ready
00:50
to really get to know your neighbors and
00:52
get to know people in the elevator and
00:53
it breakfasts and things like that okay
00:55
so not as big of rooms and we'll just
00:57
start out with that one fact you're
00:58
gonna have a lot smaller rooms but
01:00
before you actually get your hotel how
01:02
do you book your hotel hotels in Europe
01:04
and bed-and-breakfast in Europe have
01:06
gone all in in online bookings so your
01:09
bookings calm your Trip Advisor's all
01:12
these things you can book through there
01:14
pretty much any accommodation throughout
01:16
Europe and that makes it fantastic so
01:18
you can read the reviews and see if it's
01:20
right for you is it for kids is it for
01:22
families is it for a romantic getaway
01:24
you know these kind of things and who
01:26
the lights come on and everything you
01:28
know what is you're really looking for
01:29
so booking online is a really easy way
01:32
to do it also you can pay that way now
01:34
sometimes you might want special
01:36
requests and a lot of times you're
01:37
booked online through like a TripAdvisor
01:39
bookings those special requests you're
01:41
not always sure if they're gonna
01:42
actually get through so you can also
01:44
call the hotel and believe me they'll
01:46
speak English where they'll find some of
01:47
the speaks English that won't be a
01:49
problem or email them directly because
01:51
again they've gone all in for their
01:53
online presence so they'll have websites
01:55
and Facebook pages and stuff like that
01:57
so you can get your information if you
01:59
need it so if you need a baby bed or an
02:00
extra bed or something like that okay so
02:02
booking Europe simplest can be now next
02:05
thing is when you get to the hotel you
02:07
want to find a check-in okay now
02:09
check-in and Europe usually where you're
02:10
going to have to do you'll need your
02:11
passport and the credit card you booked
02:13
with
02:14
not every place will ask for but make
02:16
make sure you have those relatively easy
02:17
to get now so you're probably come for
02:19
the train station don't have them out
02:21
but you'll have your money about ready
02:22
to get out so if you need to get them
02:23
out you can now probably going to fill
02:26
out on your forms your registration
02:27
you're going to need your birthday
02:29
address typical things you're going to
02:31
need some countries for example Italy
02:33
they need to scan your passport or
02:35
photocopy of your passport and report it
02:37
to the police
02:38
so then you're registered there here in
02:40
Austria they asked for one passport from
02:42
our entire group and that was fine
02:44
because they're the ones that made the
02:45
made a check-in so some places everybody
02:48
in the group will have to put their
02:49
passports in other times only one person
02:51
and that's all okay now what's cool is
02:54
the check-in desks here are usually very
02:56
helpful for example one thing I
02:58
recommend always ask for the tourist map
03:00
when you do go to the hotel downstairs
03:03
the people here at the wolf dietrich
03:04
they got us a map they're circled here
03:06
you were on the hotel or here's the
03:08
hotel map seat seemed a nice little X
03:10
here's where you go here's where I
03:12
recommend you to see go eat and things
03:13
like that
03:14
now the thing is the people I find in
03:16
Europe the hotel staff the front desk
03:18
staff are really well trained and
03:20
telling you where to go eat where to
03:21
drink where to make merry how to see the
03:23
sights what public transport to take so
03:26
that can be really helpful this thing is
03:27
going to be your most helpful get that
03:29
tourist map so you don't have to care
03:30
around your big guidebooks all the time
03:32
you can just have this and I'm gonna
03:34
have your spots marked off okay now once
03:37
you get on check-in you're going to take
03:38
your well and hopefully there's an
03:41
elevator there's not always elevators at
03:43
all these hotels okay so make sure if
03:45
you you have problems going upstairs
03:46
with heavy luggage make sure you ask is
03:48
there an elevator now 99% of the time
03:51
there is but bed and breakfast --is and
03:53
smaller places there may not be okay and
03:55
when you take the elevator what you
03:57
should know is elevators in Europe are
03:59
significantly smaller and then they are
04:01
in the u.s. especially the hotel
04:03
elevators okay so sometimes the
04:05
elevators can take two people up or one
04:06
person in luggage sometimes you'll have
04:08
to actually pull a screen across to
04:11
actually open the door okay and one
04:13
thing that gets Americans kind of mixed
04:15
up when they when they go come to Europe
04:16
is the elevator the ground floor is
04:19
usually zero or G for ground floor or e
04:22
and like for example here and Gasol
04:24
ground floor they have that and then the
04:26
first floor up that's one so you may
04:28
think Oh what says we're on the second
04:30
floor I can walk up two flights of
04:32
stairs
04:32
no that's walking up three flights of
04:34
stairs okay so if you get some big
04:35
luggage that can be a little problematic
04:38
so elevators tiny tiny tiny and you're
04:41
starting one floor up now we've gotten
04:44
to our room now the thing is with your
04:45
rooms here in Europe yes you could have
04:47
keys or you can have the key cards it
04:49
doesn't really matter which one you are
04:51
one thing you might want to know is if
04:53
you get a key that's like a big Bell or
04:55
a big like thing on the end a lot of
04:57
times the smaller hotels and private
05:00
hotels will say please leave your key
05:01
with us when you leave okay that's what
05:03
they have 24-hour front desk they don't
05:06
have 24-hour front desk they're gonna
05:07
let you take your keys don't worry about
05:08
that but just now sometimes you gotta
05:10
leave your keys most the time you've
05:11
done now we're in the room now the most
05:14
important part of your room is your bed
05:16
beds and Europe look if you get a double
05:18
room in Europe it's two single beds okay
05:22
it's not two queen beds like you have at
05:23
a Holiday Inn or a Best Western or
05:26
something like that it's two single beds
05:27
and sometimes now sometimes you get
05:29
lucky and you have a double bed like
05:30
this which doesn't have a crack in it
05:32
but most of the time again when they're
05:34
double beds they're just push together
05:35
okay you have a crack in the middle and
05:37
the funny thing is that crack we've lost
05:39
children we actually asked my dad once
05:42
because the beds separated my that was
05:44
my mom my dad and me we're super hotel
05:46
Frankfort and the cry was thinner that's
05:49
just so you know it accredited ruined
05:51
this with and also my dad goes
05:52
right through the middle
05:53
we've lost Caleb and Liam a couple times
05:55
too so be ready for that crack in the
05:57
bed okay which which might be a little
06:00
shocking also if your travel with a
06:02
friend and you don't feel like being
06:03
very snugly together
06:05
well the beds you can easily separate
06:06
it's no problem okay also the beds here
06:09
a lot of times there's slat beds okay
06:11
there like here beds and so they've wood
06:13
slats underneath if you're a heavy guy
06:15
like me
06:15
you better not be jumping on that bed
06:17
cuz you will snap through it and
06:18
breaking okay not a really cool thing to
06:21
happen but you should be prepared for
06:23
that so you know no joking down the beds
06:24
you see your kids jumping on the bed say
06:26
no no it's going to fall apart okay now
06:28
what are some other things you might
06:29
want to know about hotels in Europe well
06:31
one thing if you want to go to the
06:33
bathroom now in the bathrooms here I'll
06:35
I'll take you to the bathroom okay so
06:37
here's the toilet
06:38
it now obviously the normal sit-down
06:39
toilet you have that Europe the only
06:41
times you ever see the hole in ground
06:42
toilets or kind of public toilets maybe
06:44
someplace in Italy or Greece your if you
06:46
don't see them too often so you're
06:47
always going to have a normal sit-down
06:48
toilet and you'll see there's the two
06:50
buttons up top there's a big button and
06:51
a little button the little button is if
06:54
you do little like pee-pee the big
06:56
button is if you do something bigger
06:57
sometimes you'll see one dot or two dots
07:00
one dot number one two dots number two
07:03
also some hotels in some bathrooms you
07:06
actually have to hold down the button so
07:07
all the water goes so you really control
07:09
the whole flow so if you do your
07:11
business please respect the other people
07:13
after you and make sure it all goes down
07:14
okay now what else do you want to do I
07:17
also want to take a shower when you're
07:18
here okay so we're in the shower area
07:20
the bath area now I'm not going to lie
07:22
to you most hotels in Europe don't have
07:23
the clawfoot you know tub this is
07:25
literally the nicest hotel I've ever
07:27
stayed in Europe it's fantastic
07:29
but there's one thing that they have
07:30
here in their shower bathtub area that
07:33
is very common in Europe and you have
07:35
the hold it shower now the thing is some
07:37
people will say it'll be hanging up on
07:38
the wall and they won't take it off you
07:40
can take it off the wall and use it to
07:42
bathe yourself just fine really great if
07:44
you got kids all kinds of stuff but I
07:46
met a lot of tourists I didn't realize
07:47
oh I can take that off yes that's why it
07:50
has the hose so you can wash around in
07:52
here if you've got kids bathtubs are not
07:55
very common in in the showers and the
07:58
toilets in Europe usually your shower is
08:01
very small and if your big guy like me I
08:03
mean you sometimes you barely fit in ok
08:06
so just be prepared for that um
08:08
sometimes actually seeing showers where
08:10
some of the shower and the toilet are
08:12
almost the same place so just know again
08:14
tiny spaces tiny tiny spaces sometimes
08:17
it's hard to get everything washed every
08:20
time so make sure you're watching ok so
08:22
what are some other things that are
08:23
different by European hotels so another
08:25
thing you might want to know about is
08:26
the TV I know I know
08:28
I'm here to travel I'm here to explore I
08:30
don't have time to watch TV I agree with
08:33
you but the thing is after you go into
08:35
the Salt Mines in the morning and going
08:37
to see the Cathedral in the afternoon
08:38
and then going up to the fortress up on
08:40
them up on the hill in the evening you
08:43
get kind of tired and after you know
08:44
that vina so and all those great
08:45
pastries here you just want to sit back
08:48
relax when you get to the hotel put on
08:50
TV
08:51
to show and go to bed now the thing is
08:53
what you should know is TV in Europe is
08:55
different in every country in terms of
08:57
the language places like Sweden Finland
08:59
Portugal they don't dub it all of it
09:02
will be in English or French or whatever
09:03
with subtitles on the bottom whereas in
09:06
Germany or here in Austria they actually
09:08
dub it into German so you might see your
09:10
favorite show
09:11
Oh Doctor Who's on awesome and Doctor
09:15
Who speaking German what it's because
09:18
here they're dubbing everything and that
09:20
just depends where you go some places
09:22
actually have some channels that have
09:23
both but I will say here should kind of
09:25
give in every country hotel room TV
09:28
Guide you're going to have four or five
09:30
local channels kind of like the ABC
09:32
network or CBS or NBC Fox in the u.s.
09:36
you'll have those you have a couple
09:38
sports channels you're usually Eurosport
09:40
okay you'll have euronews which isn't
09:42
just news at all a bunch of different
09:43
languages and then you're going to have
09:45
a traditional CN international debate
09:48
song or the French TV channel okay arty
09:51
which is Russia today all right
09:53
and then you probably like BBC news
09:55
horse maybe Sky News okay so a lot of
09:57
times what happens is the only time you
09:59
know America has really watched a lot of
10:01
news and these kind of things is when
10:02
they go abroad because that's the only
10:04
English Channel that's on there now what
10:06
are some other differences in the hotel
10:07
now in the US we kind of feel like Wi-Fi
10:10
is our god-given right well in Europe
10:12
it's not always the case but most hotels
10:14
in Europe will have Wi-Fi don't expect a
10:17
super strong signal so you can watch
10:19
Netflix pay Netflix doesn't work in
10:21
every country by the way but don't
10:23
expect a super strong signal if you got
10:25
to do work sometimes you got to go out
10:27
and find internet cafe which are very
10:28
hard to find now now some other things
10:30
that are different so I'll go back to
10:31
the bathroom kind of stuff one thing
10:33
toilets you can throw the toilet paper
10:36
down the the toilet just fine tampons
10:39
and feminine hygiene products usually
10:41
they'll have bags you'll throw them is
10:43
way on the side because a lot of places
10:44
in Europe the piping isn't can't handle
10:46
that kind of stuff so those kind of
10:48
products so it makes your junior is not
10:50
to run stuff down the toilet okay now
10:52
another thing in terms of the tours are
10:55
the toilets and stuff like that are the
10:57
towels now just like every hotel the
10:59
towels here are like drying with a sheet
11:02
okay I'll just tell you about
11:03
that so expect to use all your towels in
11:06
Europe they do not give you washcloths
11:08
okay the last ten hotels I've been to
11:10
one place gave me washcloths so that's
11:11
the own one I've ever remembered
11:12
actually giving me washcloths so if
11:14
you're a washcloth person like my
11:16
mother's a like psychotic about it and
11:18
joseline is psychotic about it they
11:20
actually bring a stack of throwaway ones
11:21
so they use it for a few days in hotel
11:23
then when they leave poop get rid of it
11:24
okay so just be ready for that also
11:27
hotels in Europe are a great place for
11:29
breakfast a typical European breakfast
11:31
they call a continental breakfast
11:33
meaning continental Europe
11:34
you're going to have rolls and bread
11:36
slices of cheese slices of meats some
11:39
and then some jams that stuff to put on
11:41
top and usually some cereals and if
11:44
you're nicer place they might have
11:45
scrambled eggs or baker's sausages
11:47
depending where you are so you can get a
11:48
really good breakfast a really good meal
11:50
in the morning to start your day off so
11:52
you can go and explore as much as you
11:54
want and save some money by having not
11:56
having to have lunch or skip a meal be
11:57
so much your great breakfast --is most
12:00
arrests for most breakfasts is in Europe
12:02
or from like 7:00 to 11:00 checkout
12:04
times in Europe usually are between
12:07
eleven and twelve o'clock one of those
12:08
two ones all right another thing you
12:10
want to look at is the hotel bar yes we
12:12
all love the bar for the drinks and the
12:14
snacks and stuff like that
12:15
but also what you need to know is in
12:17
Europe a lot of the stores closed
12:18
relatively early they don't have 24
12:20
hours shopping here so if you need a
12:22
bottle of water because you're thirsty
12:24
hey the hotel bar might be your only
12:27
option whether it's a snack I know we
12:29
were in Norway all the restaurants
12:30
everything was closed you know I went
12:32
down the hotel bar what can I do
12:34
person front tested here come over the
12:36
bar he got me a water and a quick lunch
12:38
this KitKat thing and I was fine another
12:41
thing is if you look into hotels water
12:42
around Europe you can drink it just
12:44
might not taste good so that's why you
12:46
see a lot of Europeans drinking water
12:48
whether with bubbles or without bubbles
12:50
some places like Sweden the tap water so
12:52
good you just want to like sit on
12:53
anything oh so good other places like
12:57
Berlin Berlin's got a lot of chalk in
12:59
the water so you take a drink and you're
13:00
actually thirst year afterwards so
13:02
that's why a lot of Europeans drink the
13:04
bottled water and your hotel bar can
13:06
help you out with that and the last
13:07
thing I want to talk about is if you can
13:08
see I'm a little hot and sweaty here is
13:10
the AC air-conditioning European hotels
13:14
don't always have air-conditioning they
13:16
do usually always
13:17
heating's at least have that or lots of
13:19
blankets to warm up to but some of the
13:21
times there is no AC so be prepared for
13:23
that that's why you know I have actually
13:25
the windows closed and everything so I
13:26
can film but usually you're going to be
13:28
open your windows to let the breeze
13:29
through the hotels may they'll give you
13:31
fans and stuff like that to cool off but
13:34
usually expect probably not too much AC
13:36
now if you're in Greece and stuff like
13:38
that you'll see units up on the wall
13:39
okay well you'll get a remote control
13:41
for that all right so just so you know
13:43
anyway those are some of the things I
13:45
think you need to know about booking
13:47
hotels before you go if you have other
13:49
questions about booking hotels please

hey there fellow travelers mark here
00:05
with Walters world it wouldn't Salzburg
00:07
Austria a great place to go to and we're
00:09
staying the wolf dietrich hotel the
00:11
hotel with obvious is some pretty cool
00:12
design in their rooms and things like
00:14
that what I thought I'd give you is
00:16
basically what you should know about
00:18
European hotels before you come to
00:21
Europe because I'll tell you the Holiday
00:23
Inn Express that you get in Champaign
00:25
Illinois is not the same as the hotel
00:27
you're getting in a Salzburg Austria so
00:29
we're going to do is going to go through
00:30
some of the basic differences so you're
00:32
kind of prepared for your hotel stay in
00:35
Europe okay now I will preface this my
00:38
hotels are pretty different throughout
00:40
Europe but there are some consistencies
00:42
usually aside from this room usually the
00:45
hotels are very small they're much small
00:47
and you have in the US and it's a lot
00:48
more intimate setting so just be ready
00:50
to really get to know your neighbors and
00:52
get to know people in the elevator and
00:53
it breakfasts and things like that okay
00:55
so not as big of rooms and we'll just
00:57
start out with that one fact you're
00:58
gonna have a lot smaller rooms but
01:00
before you actually get your hotel how
01:02
do you book your hotel hotels in Europe
01:04
and bed-and-breakfast in Europe have
01:06
gone all in in online bookings so your
01:09
bookings calm your Trip Advisor's all
01:12
these things you can book through there
01:14
pretty much any accommodation throughout
01:16
Europe and that makes it fantastic so
01:18
you can read the reviews and see if it's
01:20
right for you is it for kids is it for
01:22
families is it for a romantic getaway
01:24
you know these kind of things and who
01:26
the lights come on and everything you
01:28
know what is you're really looking for
01:29
so booking online is a really easy way
01:32
to do it also you can pay that way now
01:34
sometimes you might want special
01:36
requests and a lot of times you're
01:37
booked online through like a TripAdvisor
01:39
bookings those special requests you're
01:41
not always sure if they're gonna
01:42
actually get through so you can also
01:44
call the hotel and believe me they'll
01:46
speak English where they'll find some of
01:47
the speaks English that won't be a
01:49
problem or email them directly because
01:51
again they've gone all in for their
01:53
online presence so they'll have websites
01:55
and Facebook pages and stuff like that
01:57
so you can get your information if you
01:59
need it so if you need a baby bed or an
02:00
extra bed or something like that okay so
02:02
booking Europe simplest can be now next
02:05
thing is when you get to the hotel you
02:07
want to find a check-in okay now
02:09
check-in and Europe usually where you're
02:10
going to have to do you'll need your
02:11
passport and the credit card you booked
02:13
with
02:14
not every place will ask for but make
02:16
make sure you have those relatively easy
02:17
to get now so you're probably come for
02:19
the train station don't have them out
02:21
but you'll have your money about ready
02:22
to get out so if you need to get them
02:23
out you can now probably going to fill
02:26
out on your forms your registration
02:27
you're going to need your birthday
02:29
address typical things you're going to
02:31
need some countries for example Italy
02:33
they need to scan your passport or
02:35
photocopy of your passport and report it
02:37
to the police
02:38
so then you're registered there here in
02:40
Austria they asked for one passport from
02:42
our entire group and that was fine
02:44
because they're the ones that made the
02:45
made a check-in so some places everybody
02:48
in the group will have to put their
02:49
passports in other times only one person
02:51
and that's all okay now what's cool is
02:54
the check-in desks here are usually very
02:56
helpful for example one thing I
02:58
recommend always ask for the tourist map
03:00
when you do go to the hotel downstairs
03:03
the people here at the wolf dietrich
03:04
they got us a map they're circled here
03:06
you were on the hotel or here's the
03:08
hotel map seat seemed a nice little X
03:10
here's where you go here's where I
03:12
recommend you to see go eat and things
03:13
like that
03:14
now the thing is the people I find in
03:16
Europe the hotel staff the front desk
03:18
staff are really well trained and
03:20
telling you where to go eat where to
03:21
drink where to make merry how to see the
03:23
sights what public transport to take so
03:26
that can be really helpful this thing is
03:27
going to be your most helpful get that
03:29
tourist map so you don't have to care
03:30
around your big guidebooks all the time
03:32
you can just have this and I'm gonna
03:34
have your spots marked off okay now once
03:37
you get on check-in you're going to take
03:38
your well and hopefully there's an
03:41
elevator there's not always elevators at
03:43
all these hotels okay so make sure if
03:45
you you have problems going upstairs
03:46
with heavy luggage make sure you ask is
03:48
there an elevator now 99% of the time
03:51
there is but bed and breakfast --is and
03:53
smaller places there may not be okay and
03:55
when you take the elevator what you
03:57
should know is elevators in Europe are
03:59
significantly smaller and then they are
04:01
in the u.s. especially the hotel
04:03
elevators okay so sometimes the
04:05
elevators can take two people up or one
04:06
person in luggage sometimes you'll have
04:08
to actually pull a screen across to
04:11
actually open the door okay and one
04:13
thing that gets Americans kind of mixed
04:15
up when they when they go come to Europe
04:16
is the elevator the ground floor is
04:19
usually zero or G for ground floor or e
04:22
and like for example here and Gasol
04:24
ground floor they have that and then the
04:26
first floor up that's one so you may
04:28
think Oh what says we're on the second
04:30
floor I can walk up two flights of
04:32
stairs
04:32
no that's walking up three flights of
04:34
stairs okay so if you get some big
04:35
luggage that can be a little problematic
04:38
so elevators tiny tiny tiny and you're
04:41
starting one floor up now we've gotten
04:44
to our room now the thing is with your
04:45
rooms here in Europe yes you could have
04:47
keys or you can have the key cards it
04:49
doesn't really matter which one you are
04:51
one thing you might want to know is if
04:53
you get a key that's like a big Bell or
04:55
a big like thing on the end a lot of
04:57
times the smaller hotels and private
05:00
hotels will say please leave your key
05:01
with us when you leave okay that's what
05:03
they have 24-hour front desk they don't
05:06
have 24-hour front desk they're gonna
05:07
let you take your keys don't worry about
05:08
that but just now sometimes you gotta
05:10
leave your keys most the time you've
05:11
done now we're in the room now the most
05:14
important part of your room is your bed
05:16
beds and Europe look if you get a double
05:18
room in Europe it's two single beds okay
05:22
it's not two queen beds like you have at
05:23
a Holiday Inn or a Best Western or
05:26
something like that it's two single beds
05:27
and sometimes now sometimes you get
05:29
lucky and you have a double bed like
05:30
this which doesn't have a crack in it
05:32
but most of the time again when they're
05:34
double beds they're just push together
05:35
okay you have a crack in the middle and
05:37
the funny thing is that crack we've lost
05:39
children we actually asked my dad once
05:42
because the beds separated my that was
05:44
my mom my dad and me we're super hotel
05:46
Frankfort and the cry was thinner that's
05:49
just so you know it accredited ruined
05:51
this with and also my dad goes
05:52
right through the middle
05:53
we've lost Caleb and Liam a couple times
05:55
too so be ready for that crack in the
05:57
bed okay which which might be a little
06:00
shocking also if your travel with a
06:02
friend and you don't feel like being
06:03
very snugly together
06:05
well the beds you can easily separate
06:06
it's no problem okay also the beds here
06:09
a lot of times there's slat beds okay
06:11
there like here beds and so they've wood
06:13
slats underneath if you're a heavy guy
06:15
like me
06:15
you better not be jumping on that bed
06:17
cuz you will snap through it and
06:18
breaking okay not a really cool thing to
06:21
happen but you should be prepared for
06:23
that so you know no joking down the beds
06:24
you see your kids jumping on the bed say
06:26
no no it's going to fall apart okay now
06:28
what are some other things you might
06:29
want to know about hotels in Europe well
06:31
one thing if you want to go to the
06:33
bathroom now in the bathrooms here I'll
06:35
I'll take you to the bathroom okay so
06:37
here's the toilet
06:38
it now obviously the normal sit-down
06:39
toilet you have that Europe the only
06:41
times you ever see the hole in ground
06:42
toilets or kind of public toilets maybe
06:44
someplace in Italy or Greece your if you
06:46
don't see them too often so you're
06:47
always going to have a normal sit-down
06:48
toilet and you'll see there's the two
06:50
buttons up top there's a big button and
06:51
a little button the little button is if
06:54
you do little like pee-pee the big
06:56
button is if you do something bigger
06:57
sometimes you'll see one dot or two dots
07:00
one dot number one two dots number two
07:03
also some hotels in some bathrooms you
07:06
actually have to hold down the button so
07:07
all the water goes so you really control
07:09
the whole flow so if you do your
07:11
business please respect the other people
07:13
after you and make sure it all goes down
07:14
okay now what else do you want to do I
07:17
also want to take a shower when you're
07:18
here okay so we're in the shower area
07:20
the bath area now I'm not going to lie
07:22
to you most hotels in Europe don't have
07:23
the clawfoot you know tub this is
07:25
literally the nicest hotel I've ever
07:27
stayed in Europe it's fantastic
07:29
but there's one thing that they have
07:30
here in their shower bathtub area that
07:33
is very common in Europe and you have
07:35
the hold it shower now the thing is some
07:37
people will say it'll be hanging up on
07:38
the wall and they won't take it off you
07:40
can take it off the wall and use it to
07:42
bathe yourself just fine really great if
07:44
you got kids all kinds of stuff but I
07:46
met a lot of tourists I didn't realize
07:47
oh I can take that off yes that's why it
07:50
has the hose so you can wash around in
07:52
here if you've got kids bathtubs are not
07:55
very common in in the showers and the
07:58
toilets in Europe usually your shower is
08:01
very small and if your big guy like me I
08:03
mean you sometimes you barely fit in ok
08:06
so just be prepared for that um
08:08
sometimes actually seeing showers where
08:10
some of the shower and the toilet are
08:12
almost the same place so just know again
08:14
tiny spaces tiny tiny spaces sometimes
08:17
it's hard to get everything washed every
08:20
time so make sure you're watching ok so
08:22
what are some other things that are
08:23
different by European hotels so another
08:25
thing you might want to know about is
08:26
the TV I know I know
08:28
I'm here to travel I'm here to explore I
08:30
don't have time to watch TV I agree with
08:33
you but the thing is after you go into
08:35
the Salt Mines in the morning and going
08:37
to see the Cathedral in the afternoon
08:38
and then going up to the fortress up on
08:40
them up on the hill in the evening you
08:43
get kind of tired and after you know
08:44
that vina so and all those great
08:45
pastries here you just want to sit back
08:48
relax when you get to the hotel put on
08:50
TV
08:51
to show and go to bed now the thing is
08:53
what you should know is TV in Europe is
08:55
different in every country in terms of
08:57
the language places like Sweden Finland
08:59
Portugal they don't dub it all of it
09:02
will be in English or French or whatever
09:03
with subtitles on the bottom whereas in
09:06
Germany or here in Austria they actually
09:08
dub it into German so you might see your
09:10
favorite show
09:11
Oh Doctor Who's on awesome and Doctor
09:15
Who speaking German what it's because
09:18
here they're dubbing everything and that
09:20
just depends where you go some places
09:22
actually have some channels that have
09:23
both but I will say here should kind of
09:25
give in every country hotel room TV
09:28
Guide you're going to have four or five
09:30
local channels kind of like the ABC
09:32
network or CBS or NBC Fox in the u.s.
09:36
you'll have those you have a couple
09:38
sports channels you're usually Eurosport
09:40
okay you'll have euronews which isn't
09:42
just news at all a bunch of different
09:43
languages and then you're going to have
09:45
a traditional CN international debate
09:48
song or the French TV channel okay arty
09:51
which is Russia today all right
09:53
and then you probably like BBC news
09:55
horse maybe Sky News okay so a lot of
09:57
times what happens is the only time you
09:59
know America has really watched a lot of
10:01
news and these kind of things is when
10:02
they go abroad because that's the only
10:04
English Channel that's on there now what
10:06
are some other differences in the hotel
10:07
now in the US we kind of feel like Wi-Fi
10:10
is our god-given right well in Europe
10:12
it's not always the case but most hotels
10:14
in Europe will have Wi-Fi don't expect a
10:17
super strong signal so you can watch
10:19
Netflix pay Netflix doesn't work in
10:21
every country by the way but don't
10:23
expect a super strong signal if you got
10:25
to do work sometimes you got to go out
10:27
and find internet cafe which are very
10:28
hard to find now now some other things
10:30
that are different so I'll go back to
10:31
the bathroom kind of stuff one thing
10:33
toilets you can throw the toilet paper
10:36
down the the toilet just fine tampons
10:39
and feminine hygiene products usually
10:41
they'll have bags you'll throw them is
10:43
way on the side because a lot of places
10:44
in Europe the piping isn't can't handle
10:46
that kind of stuff so those kind of
10:48
products so it makes your junior is not
10:50
to run stuff down the toilet okay now
10:52
another thing in terms of the tours are
10:55
the toilets and stuff like that are the
10:57
towels now just like every hotel the
10:59
towels here are like drying with a sheet
11:02
okay I'll just tell you about
11:03
that so expect to use all your towels in
11:06
Europe they do not give you washcloths
11:08
okay the last ten hotels I've been to
11:10
one place gave me washcloths so that's
11:11
the own one I've ever remembered
11:12
actually giving me washcloths so if
11:14
you're a washcloth person like my
11:16
mother's a like psychotic about it and
11:18
joseline is psychotic about it they
11:20
actually bring a stack of throwaway ones
11:21
so they use it for a few days in hotel
11:23
then when they leave poop get rid of it
11:24
okay so just be ready for that also
11:27
hotels in Europe are a great place for
11:29
breakfast a typical European breakfast
11:31
they call a continental breakfast
11:33
meaning continental Europe
11:34
you're going to have rolls and bread
11:36
slices of cheese slices of meats some
11:39
and then some jams that stuff to put on
11:41
top and usually some cereals and if
11:44
you're nicer place they might have
11:45
scrambled eggs or baker's sausages
11:47
depending where you are so you can get a
11:48
really good breakfast a really good meal
11:50
in the morning to start your day off so
11:52
you can go and explore as much as you
11:54
want and save some money by having not
11:56
having to have lunch or skip a meal be
11:57
so much your great breakfast --is most
12:00
arrests for most breakfasts is in Europe
12:02
or from like 7:00 to 11:00 checkout
12:04
times in Europe usually are between
12:07
eleven and twelve o'clock one of those
12:08
two ones all right another thing you
12:10
want to look at is the hotel bar yes we
12:12
all love the bar for the drinks and the
12:14
snacks and stuff like that
12:15
but also what you need to know is in
12:17
Europe a lot of the stores closed
12:18
relatively early they don't have 24
12:20
hours shopping here so if you need a
12:22
bottle of water because you're thirsty
12:24
hey the hotel bar might be your only
12:27
option whether it's a snack I know we
12:29
were in Norway all the restaurants
12:30
everything was closed you know I went
12:32
down the hotel bar what can I do
12:34
person front tested here come over the
12:36
bar he got me a water and a quick lunch
12:38
this KitKat thing and I was fine another
12:41
thing is if you look into hotels water
12:42
around Europe you can drink it just
12:44
might not taste good so that's why you
12:46
see a lot of Europeans drinking water
12:48
whether with bubbles or without bubbles
12:50
some places like Sweden the tap water so
12:52
good you just want to like sit on
12:53
anything oh so good other places like
12:57
Berlin Berlin's got a lot of chalk in
12:59
the water so you take a drink and you're
13:00
actually thirst year afterwards so
13:02
that's why a lot of Europeans drink the
13:04
bottled water and your hotel bar can
13:06
help you out with that and the last
13:07
thing I want to talk about is if you can
13:08
see I'm a little hot and sweaty here is
13:10
the AC air-conditioning European hotels
13:14
don't always have air-conditioning they
13:16
do usually always
13:17
heating's at least have that or lots of
13:19
blankets to warm up to but some of the
13:21
times there is no AC so be prepared for
13:23
that that's why you know I have actually
13:25
the windows closed and everything so I
13:26
can film but usually you're going to be
13:28
open your windows to let the breeze
13:29
through the hotels may they'll give you
13:31
fans and stuff like that to cool off but
13:34
usually expect probably not too much AC
13:36
now if you're in Greece and stuff like
13:38
that you'll see units up on the wall
13:39
okay well you'll get a remote control
13:41
for that all right so just so you know
13:43

hey there fellow travelers mark here
00:05
with Walters world it wouldn't Salzburg
00:07
Austria a great place to go to and we're
00:09
staying the wolf dietrich hotel the
00:11
hotel with obvious is some pretty cool
00:12
design in their rooms and things like
00:14
that what I thought I'd give you is
00:16
basically what you should know about
00:18
European hotels before you come to
00:21
Europe because I'll tell you the Holiday
00:23
Inn Express that you get in Champaign
00:25
Illinois is not the same as the hotel
00:27
you're getting in a Salzburg Austria so
00:29
we're going to do is going to go through
00:30
some of the basic differences so you're
00:32
kind of prepared for your hotel stay in
00:35
Europe okay now I will preface this my
00:38
hotels are pretty different throughout
00:40
Europe but there are some consistencies
00:42
usually aside from this room usually the
00:45
hotels are very small they're much small
00:47
and you have in the US and it's a lot
00:48
more intimate setting so just be ready
00:50
to really get to know your neighbors and
00:52
get to know people in the elevator and
00:53
it breakfasts and things like that okay
00:55
so not as big of rooms and we'll just
00:57
start out with that one fact you're
00:58
gonna have a lot smaller rooms but
01:00
before you actually get your hotel how
01:02
do you book your hotel hotels in Europe
01:04
and bed-and-breakfast in Europe have
01:06
gone all in in online bookings so your
01:09
bookings calm your Trip Advisor's all
01:12
these things you can book through there
01:14
pretty much any accommodation throughout
01:16
Europe and that makes it fantastic so
01:18
you can read the reviews and see if it's
01:20
right for you is it for kids is it for
01:22
families is it for a romantic getaway
01:24
you know these kind of things and who
01:26
the lights come on and everything you
01:28
know what is you're really looking for
01:29
so booking online is a really easy way
01:32
to do it also you can pay that way now
01:34
sometimes you might want special
01:36
requests and a lot of times you're
01:37
booked online through like a TripAdvisor
01:39
bookings those special requests you're
01:41
not always sure if they're gonna
01:42
actually get through so you can also
01:44
call the hotel and believe me they'll
01:46
speak English where they'll find some of
01:47
the speaks English that won't be a
01:49
problem or email them directly because
01:51
again they've gone all in for their
01:53
online presence so they'll have websites
01:55
and Facebook pages and stuff like that
01:57
so you can get your information if you
01:59
need it so if you need a baby bed or an
02:00
extra bed or something like that okay so
02:02
booking Europe simplest can be now next
02:05
thing is when you get to the hotel you
02:07
want to find a check-in okay now
02:09
check-in and Europe usually where you're
02:10
going to have to do you'll need your
02:11
passport and the credit card you booked
02:13
with
02:14
not every place will ask for but make
02:16
make sure you have those relatively easy
02:17
to get now so you're probably come for
02:19
the train station don't have them out
02:21
but you'll have your money about ready
02:22
to get out so if you need to get them
02:23
out you can now probably going to fill
02:26
out on your forms your registration
02:27
you're going to need your birthday
02:29
address typical things you're going to
02:31
need some countries for example Italy
02:33
they need to scan your passport or
02:35
photocopy of your passport and report it
02:37
to the police
02:38
so then you're registered there here in
02:40
Austria they asked for one passport from
02:42
our entire group and that was fine
02:44
because they're the ones that made the
02:45
made a check-in so some places everybody
02:48
in the group will have to put their
02:49
passports in other times only one person
02:51
and that's all okay now what's cool is
02:54
the check-in desks here are usually very
02:56
helpful for example one thing I
02:58
recommend always ask for the tourist map
03:00
when you do go to the hotel downstairs
03:03
the people here at the wolf dietrich
03:04
they got us a map they're circled here
03:06
you were on the hotel or here's the
03:08
hotel map seat seemed a nice little X
03:10
here's where you go here's where I
03:12
recommend you to see go eat and things
03:13
like that
03:14
now the thing is the people I find in
03:16
Europe the hotel staff the front desk
03:18
staff are really well trained and
03:20
telling you where to go eat where to
03:21
drink where to make merry how to see the
03:23
sights what public transport to take so
03:26
that can be really helpful this thing is
03:27
going to be your most helpful get that
03:29
tourist map so you don't have to care
03:30
around your big guidebooks all the time
03:32
you can just have this and I'm gonna
03:34
have your spots marked off okay now once
03:37
you get on check-in you're going to take
03:38
your well and hopefully there's an
03:41
elevator there's not always elevators at
03:43
all these hotels okay so make sure if
03:45
you you have problems going upstairs
03:46
with heavy luggage make sure you ask is
03:48
there an elevator now 99% of the time
03:51
there is but bed and breakfast --is and
03:53
smaller places there may not be okay and
03:55
when you take the elevator what you
03:57
should know is elevators in Europe are
03:59
significantly smaller and then they are
04:01
in the u.s. especially the hotel
04:03
elevators okay so sometimes the
04:05
elevators can take two people up or one
04:06
person in luggage sometimes you'll have
04:08
to actually pull a screen across to
04:11
actually open the door okay and one
04:13
thing that gets Americans kind of mixed
04:15
up when they when they go come to Europe
04:16
is the elevator the ground floor is
04:19
usually zero or G for ground floor or e
04:22
and like for example here and Gasol
04:24
ground floor they have that and then the
04:26
first floor up that's one so you may
04:28
think Oh what says we're on the second
04:30
floor I can walk up two flights of
04:32
stairs
04:32
no that's walking up three flights of
04:34
stairs okay so if you get some big
04:35
luggage that can be a little problematic
04:38
so elevators tiny tiny tiny and you're
04:41
starting one floor up now we've gotten
04:44
to our room now the thing is with your
04:45
rooms here in Europe yes you could have
04:47
keys or you can have the key cards it
04:49
doesn't really matter which one you are
04:51
one thing you might want to know is if
04:53
you get a key that's like a big Bell or
04:55
a big like thing on the end a lot of
04:57
times the smaller hotels and private
05:00
hotels will say please leave your key
05:01
with us when you leave okay that's what
05:03
they have 24-hour front desk they don't
05:06
have 24-hour front desk they're gonna
05:07
let you take your keys don't worry about
05:08
that but just now sometimes you gotta
05:10
leave your keys most the time you've
05:11
done now we're in the room now the most
05:14
important part of your room is your bed
05:16
beds and Europe look if you get a double
05:18
room in Europe it's two single beds okay
05:22
it's not two queen beds like you have at
05:23
a Holiday Inn or a Best Western or
05:26
something like that it's two single beds
05:27
and sometimes now sometimes you get
05:29
lucky and you have a double bed like
05:30
this which doesn't have a crack in it
05:32
but most of the time again when they're
05:34
double beds they're just push together
05:35
okay you have a crack in the middle and
05:37
the funny thing is that crack we've lost
05:39
children we actually asked my dad once
05:42
because the beds separated my that was
05:44
my mom my dad and me we're super hotel
05:46
Frankfort and the cry was thinner that's
05:49
just so you know it accredited ruined
05:51
this with and also my dad goes
05:52
right through the middle
05:53
we've lost Caleb and Liam a couple times
05:55
too so be ready for that crack in the
05:57
bed okay which which might be a little
06:00
shocking also if your travel with a
06:02
friend and you don't feel like being
06:03
very snugly together
06:05
well the beds you can easily separate
06:06
it's no problem okay also the beds here
06:09
a lot of times there's slat beds okay
06:11
there like here beds and so they've wood
06:13
slats underneath if you're a heavy guy
06:15
like me
06:15
you better not be jumping on that bed
06:17
cuz you will snap through it and
06:18
breaking okay not a really cool thing to
06:21
happen but you should be prepared for
06:23
that so you know no joking down the beds
06:24
you see your kids jumping on the bed say
06:26
no no it's going to fall apart okay now
06:28
what are some other things you might
06:29
want to know about hotels in Europe well
06:31
one thing if you want to go to the
06:33
bathroom now in the bathrooms here I'll
06:35
I'll take you to the bathroom okay so
06:37
here's the toilet
06:38
it now obviously the normal sit-down
06:39
toilet you have that Europe the only
06:41
times you ever see the hole in ground
06:42
toilets or kind of public toilets maybe
06:44
someplace in Italy or Greece your if you
06:46
don't see them too often so you're
06:47
always going to have a normal sit-down
06:48
toilet and you'll see there's the two
06:50
buttons up top there's a big button and
06:51
a little button the little button is if
06:54
you do little like pee-pee the big
06:56
button is if you do something bigger
06:57
sometimes you'll see one dot or two dots
07:00
one dot number one two dots number two
07:03
also some hotels in some bathrooms you
07:06
actually have to hold down the button so
07:07
all the water goes so you really control
07:09
the whole flow so if you do your [SUBTITLES_PART2] => 07:11
business please respect the other people
07:13
after you and make sure it all goes down
07:14
okay now what else do you want to do I
07:17
also want to take a shower when you're
07:18
here okay so we're in the shower area
07:20
the bath area now I'm not going to lie
07:22
to you most hotels in Europe don't have
07:23
the clawfoot you know tub this is
07:25
literally the nicest hotel I've ever
07:27
stayed in Europe it's fantastic
07:29
but there's one thing that they have
07:30
here in their shower bathtub area that
07:33
is very common in Europe and you have
07:35
the hold it shower now the thing is some
07:37
people will say it'll be hanging up on
07:38
the wall and they won't take it off you
07:40
can take it off the wall and use it to
07:42
bathe yourself just fine really great if
07:44
you got kids all kinds of stuff but I
07:46
met a lot of tourists I didn't realize
07:47
oh I can take that off yes that's why it
07:50
has the hose so you can wash around in
07:52
here if you've got kids bathtubs are not
07:55
very common in in the showers and the
07:58
toilets in Europe usually your shower is
08:01
very small and if your big guy like me I
08:03
mean you sometimes you barely fit in ok
08:06
so just be prepared for that um
08:08
sometimes actually seeing showers where
08:10
some of the shower and the toilet are
08:12
almost the same place so just know again
08:14
tiny spaces tiny tiny spaces sometimes
08:17
it's hard to get everything washed every
08:20
time so make sure you're watching ok so
08:22
what are some other things that are
08:23
different by European hotels so another
08:25
thing you might want to know about is
08:26
the TV I know I know
08:28
I'm here to travel I'm here to explore I
08:30
don't have time to watch TV I agree with
08:33
you but the thing is after you go into
08:35
the Salt Mines in the morning and going
08:37
to see the Cathedral in the afternoon
08:38
and then going up to the fortress up on
08:40
them up on the hill in the evening you
08:43
get kind of tired and after you know
08:44
that vina so and all those great
08:45
pastries here you just want to sit back
08:48
relax when you get to the hotel put on
08:50
TV
08:51
to show and go to bed now the thing is
08:53
what you should know is TV in Europe is
08:55
different in every country in terms of
08:57
the language places like Sweden Finland
08:59
Portugal they don't dub it all of it
09:02
will be in English or French or whatever
09:03
with subtitles on the bottom whereas in
09:06
Germany or here in Austria they actually
09:08
dub it into German so you might see your
09:10
favorite show
09:11
Oh Doctor Who's on awesome and Doctor
09:15
Who speaking German what it's because
09:18
here they're dubbing everything and that
09:20
just depends where you go some places
09:22
actually have some channels that have
09:23
both but I will say here should kind of
09:25
give in every country hotel room TV
09:28
Guide you're going to have four or five
09:30
local channels kind of like the ABC
09:32
network or CBS or NBC Fox in the u.s.
09:36
you'll have those you have a couple
09:38
sports channels you're usually Eurosport
09:40
okay you'll have euronews which isn't
09:42
just news at all a bunch of different
09:43
languages and then you're going to have
09:45
a traditional CN international debate
09:48
song or the French TV channel okay arty
09:51
which is Russia today all right
09:53
and then you probably like BBC news
09:55
horse maybe Sky News okay so a lot of
09:57
times what happens is the only time you
09:59
know America has really watched a lot of
10:01
news and these kind of things is when
10:02
they go abroad because that's the only
10:04
English Channel that's on there now what
10:06
are some other differences in the hotel
10:07
now in the US we kind of feel like Wi-Fi
10:10
is our god-given right well in Europe
10:12
it's not always the case but most hotels
10:14
in Europe will have Wi-Fi don't expect a
10:17
super strong signal so you can watch
10:19
Netflix pay Netflix doesn't work in
10:21
every country by the way but don't
10:23
expect a super strong signal if you got
10:25
to do work sometimes you got to go out
10:27
and find internet cafe which are very
10:28
hard to find now now some other things
10:30
that are different so I'll go back to
10:31
the bathroom kind of stuff one thing
10:33
toilets you can throw the toilet paper
10:36
down the the toilet just fine tampons
10:39
and feminine hygiene products usually
10:41
they'll have bags you'll throw them is
10:43
way on the side because a lot of places
10:44
in Europe the piping isn't can't handle
10:46
that kind of stuff so those kind of
10:48
products so it makes your junior is not
10:50
to run stuff down the toilet okay now
10:52
another thing in terms of the tours are
10:55
the toilets and stuff like that are the
10:57
towels now just like every hotel the
10:59
towels here are like drying with a sheet
11:02
okay I'll just tell you about
11:03
that so expect to use all your towels in
11:06
Europe they do not give you washcloths
11:08
okay the last ten hotels I've been to
11:10
one place gave me washcloths so that's
11:11
the own one I've ever remembered
11:12
actually giving me washcloths so if
11:14
you're a washcloth person like my
11:16
mother's a like psychotic about it and
11:18
joseline is psychotic about it they
11:20
actually bring a stack of throwaway ones
11:21
so they use it for a few days in hotel
11:23
then when they leave poop get rid of it
11:24
okay so just be ready for that also
11:27
hotels in Europe are a great place for
11:29
breakfast a typical European breakfast
11:31
they call a continental breakfast
11:33
meaning continental Europe
11:34
you're going to have rolls and bread
11:36
slices of cheese slices of meats some
11:39
and then some jams that stuff to put on
11:41
top and usually some cereals and if
11:44
you're nicer place they might have
11:45
scrambled eggs or baker's sausages
11:47
depending where you are so you can get a
11:48
really good breakfast a really good meal
11:50
in the morning to start your day off so
11:52
you can go and explore as much as you
11:54
want and save some money by having not
11:56
having to have lunch or skip a meal be
11:57
so much your great breakfast --is most
12:00
arrests for most breakfasts is in Europe
12:02
or from like 7:00 to 11:00 checkout
12:04
times in Europe usually are between
12:07
eleven and twelve o'clock one of those
12:08
two ones all right another thing you
12:10
want to look at is the hotel bar yes we
12:12
all love the bar for the drinks and the
12:14
snacks and stuff like that
12:15
but also what you need to know is in
12:17
Europe a lot of the stores closed
12:18
relatively early they don't have 24
12:20
hours shopping here so if you need a
12:22
bottle of water because you're thirsty
12:24
hey the hotel bar might be your only
12:27
option whether it's a snack I know we
12:29
were in Norway all the restaurants
12:30
everything was closed you know I went
12:32
down the hotel bar what can I do
12:34
person front tested here come over the
12:36
bar he got me a water and a quick lunch
12:38
this KitKat thing and I was fine another
12:41
thing is if you look into hotels water
12:42
around Europe you can drink it just
12:44
might not taste good so that's why you
12:46
see a lot of Europeans drinking water
12:48
whether with bubbles or without bubbles
12:50
some places like Sweden the tap water so
12:52
good you just want to like sit on
12:53
anything oh so good other places like
12:57
Berlin Berlin's got a lot of chalk in
12:59
the water so you take a drink and you're
13:00
actually thirst year afterwards so
13:02
that's why a lot of Europeans drink the
13:04
bottled water and your hotel bar can
13:06
help you out with that and the last
13:07
thing I want to talk about is if you can
13:08
see I'm a little hot and sweaty here is
13:10
the AC air-conditioning European hotels
13:14
don't always have air-conditioning they
13:16
do usually always
13:17
heating's at least have that or lots of
13:19
blankets to warm up to but some of the
13:21
times there is no AC so be prepared for
13:23
that that's why you know I have actually
13:25
the windows closed and everything so I
13:26
can film but usually you're going to be
13:28
open your windows to let the breeze
13:29
through the hotels may they'll give you
13:31
fans and stuff like that to cool off but
13:34
usually expect probably not too much AC
13:36
now if you're in Greece and stuff like
13:38
that you'll see units up on the wall
13:39
okay well you'll get a remote control
13:41
for that all right so just so you know
13:43
anyway those are some of the things I
13:45
think you need to know about booking
13:47
hotels before you go if you have other
13:49
questions about booking hotels please
13:51

00:05

00:08
that I had to stay in a $40.00 one it
00:11

00:13
you all the differences between them
00:15
because there are a lot me and my friend
00:18
Kirsten we're traveling through Europe
00:19
for the last three weeks and I've logged
00:21
it so you guys should go watch it it's
00:23
gonna be on my vlog channel blogged most
00:25
days of it so I've always wanted to stay
00:27
in this hotel it's the W Barcelona it's
00:29
so nice it's like four hundred five
00:32
hundred dollars a room that server
00:33
stayed for the nice one and for the
00:35
cheap one we stayed in a hostel it's
00:37
called the urban EBC n go here it is
00:40
thirty seven tonight starting with the
00:47
room so first I'm gonna show you guys
00:49
the four hundred dollar room so
00:51
obviously walking in it's really nice it
00:54
has two queen beds which it's kind of
00:57
hard to come by in Europe the view is
00:59
really cool the other side had an even
01:01
cooler views but still very very cool
01:03
view at the Mediterranean Sea like you
01:05
really can't beat that the room had
01:06
really cool decor - that was like
01:08
specific to Barcelona like there was
01:10
cool pillows had a little couch there's
01:13
this really cool marble sort of carpet
01:15
the room also had a ton of snacks this
01:18
little table thing was just stocked with
01:20
Pringles gummy bears some like Spanish
01:23
candy it had your usual things like a
01:26
safe a minibar and espresso machine
01:28
surprisingly a lot of storage
01:31
like you could unpack and live here for
01:33
a month this cool little gecko lizard
01:36
thing yeah that's the room
01:38
the fourth dollar hotel room well let's
01:41
just take a look I films of MTV Cribs
01:42
style
01:44
welcome to the 40 dollar room so when
01:47
you walk in we've got all the beds so
01:51
don't be shy it's definitely not super
01:54
nice but it's got the essentials we also
01:57
have some roommates so that makes it a
02:01
bit weird when you're going to sleep and
02:04
they're getting up up here is my bed
02:08
and you know when you sit down it's
02:10
you're like whoa Springs this is not
02:12
comfortable but sleeping on it it wasn't
02:14
really that bad
02:15
so so really all you get in this room is
02:18
a bunk a shelf a light and an outlet
02:22
that's really all you need I guess you
02:24
also get a little Locker to put your
02:26
suitcase in so you can't really let it
02:28
sprawl out everywhere good morning slept
02:30
so well
02:31
this bed is just so comfortable not sure
02:36
how this okay all right well I feel
02:42
rejuvenated they even have a robe so
02:44
that's how you know it's like a nice
02:46
place they've got these little shampoo
02:48
conditioner and Body Wash and now to eat
02:52
breakfast here we have some blueberry
02:55
pancakes and a latte looks delicious
02:58
just woke up in the bunk the roomies
03:03
over this bed you can definitely feel
03:06
the springs in it loving the orange kind
03:09
of reminds me of like a jail outfit and
03:14
you cannot bring food in here
03:16
so no option for room service here they
03:19
definitely don't have room service here
03:20
let's check out the hallway looks like
03:24
Nix we have the shower which is kind of
03:29
gross you can't really tell on camera
03:31
but it smells kind of weird in here just
03:35
all the time got some industrial looking
03:37
pipes
03:38
I wear flip-flops in here there's a lot
03:41
of people I'm sure have been in this
03:42
everybody's got a hook try in the lot a
03:45
presentation of the latte just ten out
03:47
of ten this is beautiful cheers guys
03:52
quite good quite good I mean they just
03:56
look like normal pancakes but the fresh
03:59
blueberries that's really what you're
04:00
looking for
04:03
this is a beautiful-looking spread am i
04:05
right definitely have a nice area to get
04:07
ready in lots of room over here to do
04:11
your hair and such there's no hair dryer
04:14
here so my hair is gonna be air drying
04:17
today let's go check out all of the
04:20
other amenities very nice pool area
04:24
there's actually two pools here and an
04:31
area where you can get coffee exactly it
04:34
looks like great temperature the waters
04:47
clean you can order food to just come
04:51
got some fish tacos so here's the pool
04:55
at the forty dollar hotel it's really
04:57
more of just like a little hot tub but
04:59
the water isn't warm in it the view is
05:01
actually not too bad it's kind of cool
05:03
it's a little city view
05:08
[Music]
05:08
[Applause]
05:10
[Music]
05:12
it didn't seem super clean but they have
05:15
won so that's a plus
05:17
so overall the $400 hotel was obviously
05:20
way nicer but the $40 one was like more
05:23
fun to stay at the $400 when I left
05:25
feeling like refreshed and rejuvenated
05:27
all in all a really lovely stay I feel
05:31
so rejuvenated and ready to explore
05:34
Barcelona and the $40.00 one you left
05:36
being like that was pretty fun it was
05:38
kind of disgusting but fun this is one
05:40
of the common areas it's really busy
05:42
over here at night it actually is pretty
05:45
cool cuz you meet people your age and
05:46

05:49
you need is like a comfortable bed and
05:50
air conditioning and you're good hope

hello everyone who gives a shit about
00:10
Eastern Europe
00:11
bad news culminates after reviewing the
00:14
worst reviewed restaurant in Bosnia and
00:17
Herzegovina our car broke down we
00:20
couldn't find a hotel so we decided to
00:23
set up a tent which turned out to be a

08:14
detail okay is there a key - no never
08:32

08:54
that is my email I'm sorry just
09:06
regurgitate SATA no problem
09:09

09:12
person had to take her there close to
09:15
some young teachers teacher down to -
09:20
sadita do - say thank you very much
09:33
it's such a shame we were not recording
09:36
right Bobby Mir was just casually
09:41
sitting on this ship and it fucking
09:45
broke down fuck man
09:49
this happened after five minutes of us
09:52
staying in this room but you're gonna
09:54
sit there that's your place from now I'm
09:57
kind of scared because I'm sitting on a
09:58
very similar chair from 19th century
10:06
fuck me where to start so she wanted to
10:12
put us into a room for eight people with
10:16
other people and I had to show her a
10:18
recorded screen of the actual
10:20
reservation after she saw it she said oh
10:24
I'm gonna put you in this room don't
10:26
worry don't worry no problem the Wi-Fi
10:28
we're connected to well connected is
10:31
probably a strong word because we keep
10:33
losing connection the Wi-Fi is from
10:37
another hotel that's right next to this
10:39
one they're stealing their father Wi-Fi
10:42
the interior well
10:46
I I think there's no comment needed
10:50
absolutely no comment meet but the most
10:53
concerning part is that there's just no
10:57
key in this room and her explanation was
11:01
that I'm here I'm here all the time
11:04
don't worry about anything nobody's
11:07
gonna steal anything from you we were
11:09
still not happy about the explanation
11:11
and I'm I'm not sure about this but I
11:14
think she implied that we should put
11:18
this this behind the door as a
11:25
protection from thieves okay this is
11:29
this is way too good not to try this
11:31
we're gonna take all our gear with us
11:34
and leave 30 dollars fake watches and a
11:40
fake phone here
11:41
Vladimir is installing a hidden camera
11:43
inside the lamp and we're gonna turn it
11:48
on and see if someone comes in and
11:50
steals something from us we're taking
11:53
all the gear with us we're also gonna
11:56
tell the lady that we're leaving for
11:58
three hours that we're gonna we're going
11:59
to dinner and we're gonna party a little
12:02
bit so she would have the confidence to
12:04
come to our room knowing that we're not
12:07
getting back soon this is by far the
12:11
worst place we've ever visited time to
12:14
check the shower and then turn the
12:17
camera on and leave
12:23
of the view is absolutely stunning look
12:29
sorry ever beautiful look at this shower
12:42
nine people from Bangladesh just arrived
12:46
to the hotel and they're taking turns in
12:48
this shower what the fuck is here
12:55
why aren't there genes here there's also
13:01
no key here I can unlock the door she
13:06
said she will make sure nobody will
13:08
enter the host a lady told me I have
13:10
only five minutes because there are way
13:12
too many people waiting for the shower
13:15
so I gotta make this really fast before
13:18
is completely wet look
13:27
probably not as bad as the shower that I
13:31
experienced in Cameroon but that wasn't
13:34
the host yes one minute one minute yes I
14:14
know I know one minute the host of eight
14:17
is kicking me out the feeling after a
14:19
cold shower is amazing I'm gonna be so
14:21
healthy
14:22
thank you all still Bosh Bosh Julia
14:24
[Music]
14:27
we're leaving the room relieving the
14:31
phone
14:31
the watches someone comes in mm-hmm Oh
14:36
what's this $30 right in front of their
14:41
eyes they can steal the cigarette they
14:43
can stir the chocolate they can steal
14:45
whatever they want and we are gonna see
14:48
it right here we are going for a dinner
14:57
two hours then we come back okay bye-bye
15:02
bye-bye
15:06
so she thinks we'll be gone for two
15:09
hours we've just finished our dinner
15:13
with Vladimir this is gonna sound really
15:16
strange but I hope someone stole
15:19
something from our room we're gonna find
15:22
out in like ten minutes yes we were out
15:27
for one and a half hours
15:31
let's see
15:33
if they stole something from us nothing
16:02
was stolen but maybe someone entered the
16:06
room let's check the footage for dinner
16:11
dinner two hours then we come back
17:39
we we've just seen the footage and this
17:43
is unbelievable
17:45
the lady entered our room at least three
17:49
times first time it seems that she just
17:53
brought some towels and sheets but then
17:56
she said something she she looked at our
17:59
things most of the bags were not there
18:02
and she said something but we cannot
18:05
figure it out we cannot figure out what
18:07
she said I've tried to apply some noise
18:10
reduction of filters on the audio but I
18:13
just cannot figure out what she said if
18:16
you're from Bosnia and Herzegovina and
18:18
you understand what she said
18:20
please let me know the second time she
18:23
she entered our room after about an hour
18:26
and she just turned on the lights she
18:29
just turned on the lights and left
18:31
immediately and the third time she
18:34
entered our room the camera just shut
18:38
down because of the battery that's such
18:41
a stupid coincidence so we have no idea
18:43
if she was searching our stuff or what
18:46
she was doing what a shame
18:49
I don't want to accuse her of anything
18:52
but it looks very strange
18:55
how can someone enter your room without
18:57
your permission
18:58
at least three times we're definitely
19:00
confronting this lady with this
19:03
situation we may actually show her the
19:05
footage I'm not sure about that yet yes
19:11
yes Papa Chak Papa Chak thank you
19:27
that was her again it's half past
19:31
midnight I don't want to accuse her of
19:33
anything but I need to know what she was
19:39
doing here the second and the third time
19:43
good night good morning what a lovely
19:49
view look at this let's come from the
19:54
lady with the fact that this is the
19:56
worst reviewed hotel and with everything
19:58
we've seen yesterday since the lady
20:01
doesn't speak English and we don't speak
20:02
Bosnian we're gonna use google
20:05
translator this is a the first part of
20:09
our questions let's go
20:40
[Applause]
20:59

22:55
mad right now these rules don't mention
22:58
that anyone can enter our private room
23:01
it seems we are not getting any
23:03
explanation and the lady's getting
23:05
really mad so I guess it's time to leave
23:08

10:37
another hotel that's right next to this
10:39
one they're stealing their father Wi-Fi
10:42
the interior well
10:46
I I think there's no comment needed
10:50
absolutely no comment meet but the most
10:53
concerning part is that there's just no
10:57
key in this room and her explanation was
11:01
that I'm here I'm here all the time
11:04
don't worry about anything nobody's
11:07
gonna steal anything from you we were
11:09
still not happy about the explanation
11:11
and I'm I'm not sure about this but I
11:14
think she implied that we should put
11:18
this this behind the door as a
11:25
protection from thieves okay this is
11:29
this is way too good not to try this
11:31
we're gonna take all our gear with us
11:34
and leave 30 dollars fake watches and a
11:40
fake phone here
11:41
Vladimir is installing a hidden camera
11:43
inside the lamp and we're gonna turn it
11:48
on and see if someone comes in and
11:50
steals something from us we're taking
11:53
all the gear with us we're also gonna
11:56
tell the lady that we're leaving for
11:58
three hours that we're gonna we're going
11:59
to dinner and we're gonna party a little
12:02
bit so she would have the confidence to
12:04
come to our room knowing that we're not
12:07
getting back soon this is by far the
12:11
worst place we've ever visited time to
12:14
check the shower and then turn the
12:17
camera on and leave
12:23
of the view is absolutely stunning look
12:29
sorry ever beautiful look at this shower
12:42
nine people from Bangladesh just arrived
12:46
to the hotel and they're taking turns in
12:48
this shower what the fuck is here
12:55
why aren't there genes here there's also
13:01
no key here I can unlock the door she
13:06
said she will make sure nobody will
13:08
enter the host a lady told me I have
13:10
only five minutes because there are way
13:12
too many people waiting for the shower
13:15
so I gotta make this really fast before
13:18
is completely wet look
13:27
probably not as bad as the shower that I
13:31
experienced in Cameroon but that wasn't
13:34
the host yes one minute one minute yes I
14:14
know I know one minute the host of eight
14:17
is kicking me out the feeling after a
14:19
cold shower is amazing I'm gonna be so
14:21
healthy
14:22
thank you all still Bosh Bosh Julia
14:24
[Music]
14:27
we're leaving the room relieving the
14:31
phone
14:31
the watches someone comes in mm-hmm Oh
14:36
what's this $30 right in front of their
14:41
eyes they can steal the cigarette they
14:43
can stir the chocolate they can steal
14:45
whatever they want and we are gonna see
14:48
it right here we are going for a dinner
14:57
two hours then we come back okay bye-bye
15:02
bye-bye
15:06
so she thinks we'll be gone for two
15:09
hours we've just finished our dinner
15:13
with Vladimir this is gonna sound really
15:16
strange but I hope someone stole
15:19
something from our room we're gonna find
15:22
out in like ten minutes yes we were out
15:27
for one and a half hours
15:31
let's see
15:33
if they stole something from us nothing
16:02
was stolen but maybe someone entered the
16:06
room let's check the footage for dinner
16:11
dinner two hours then we come back
17:39
we we've just seen the footage and this
17:43
is unbelievable
17:45
the lady entered our room at least three
17:49
times first time it seems that she just
17:53
brought some towels and sheets but then
17:56
she said something she she looked at our
17:59
things most of the bags were not there
18:02
and she said something but we cannot
18:05
figure it out we cannot figure out what
18:07
she said I've tried to apply some noise
18:10
reduction of filters on the audio but I
18:13
just cannot figure out what she said if
18:16
you're from Bosnia and Herzegovina and
18:18
you understand what she said
18:20
please let me know the second time she
18:23
she entered our room after about an hour
18:26
and she just turned on the lights she
18:29
just turned on the lights and left
18:31
immediately and the third time she
18:34
entered our room the camera just shut
18:38
down because of the battery that's such
18:41
a stupid coincidence so we have no idea
18:43
if she was searching our stuff or what
18:46
she was doing what a shame
18:49
I don't want to accuse her of anything
18:52
but it looks very strange
18:55
how can someone enter your room without
18:57
your permission
18:58
at least three times we're definitely
19:00
confronting this lady with this
19:03
situation we may actually show her the
19:05
footage I'm not sure about that yet yes
19:11
yes Papa Chak Papa Chak thank you
19:27
that was her again it's half past
19:31
midnight I don't want to accuse her of
19:33
anything but I need to know what she was
19:39
doing here the second and the third time
19:43
good night good morning what a lovely
19:49
view look at this let's come from the
19:54
lady with the fact that this is the
19:56
worst reviewed hotel and with everything
19:58
we've seen yesterday since the lady
20:01
doesn't speak English and we don't speak
20:02
Bosnian we're gonna use google

20:09

23:05

23:08

Hello, my dears.
00:37
It's 10 a.m. and I'm at the Okecie airport.
00:41
I have already checked in.
00:43
I am flying to Athens soon, for less than a week,
00:47
and I am going to film some vlogs.
00:50
I just took the pictures for Instagram,
00:52
and another thing I have to do before the departure
00:55
is to eat breakfast, because I'm hungry,
00:58
I haven't eaten since morning.
00:59
So, I'm going to take care of myself here in a minute.
01:02
Maybe I'll visit the local perfumery
01:04
to find something interesting.
01:06
I'll see if I have enough time.
02:03
We've just took off.
02:04
The flight will take 3 hours, so I will take a nap now.
02:08
I'll talk to you when we arrive.
02:41
A taxi driver uses very intensive perfume.
02:45
You can smell them in the whole taxi.
02:47
I think I'll see what fragrance it is.
02:50
Unfortunately, he doesn't speak English.
02:54
Here it is, the fragrance,
02:56
we understood each other.
02:58
It's going pretty well.
04:16
I've just got to my room
04:18
in Hotel Electra Metropolis.
04:21
It's 5 star hotel in the centre of Athens.
04:25
Name of the room I've chosen is Suite Acropolis
04:31
It consists of two rooms and a bathroom.
04:34
Let me show you how it all looks like.
04:38
Opposite the entrance there is the first smaller room with a fold-out sofa.
04:45
On the right there is a table with a bottle of water.
04:49
As I can see it's a gift from the hotel.
04:55
These are lukumi snacks, they're very sweet jellies.
05:01
I'll taste them later on.
05:04
Here we have a small bar,
05:07
shelves are empty,
05:11
but here we have a mini fridge,
05:14
as in most hotels.
05:16
I'll have a look, as I'm always curious what rarities I may find in a hotel fridge.
05:20
I can see Grey Goose wodka, mineral water Korpi,
05:27
it's a perfect water for corp workers.
05:30
Hence the name.
05:33
Standard things - wine, juices, coca-cola with a Santa Claus for some reason.
05:40
It's long before Christmas, but OK.
05:45
Here we can find different snacks,
05:51
nuts, chips, here is a tea.
05:56
Coffee, a coffee machine and a kettle.
05:59
This is how the smaller room looks like.
06:02
There is also a window through which we can get to the balcony.
06:06
I'll show it later.
06:08
Leaving the room, there is a wardrobe on the right.
06:13
Standard things inside: slippers and a bathrobe.
06:19
One more wardrobe is here, next to the entrance door.
06:24
Inside there is a safe.
06:26
On the right from the entrance there is a bathroom.
06:30
Bathtub connected with the shower.
06:36
Here is a sponge with a logo,
06:41
basin in the middle of the bathroom,
06:45
hairdryer, magnifying mirror.
06:49
Here are some cosmetics, I like checking them out as you know.
06:54
Cosmetics from Korres brand,
06:56
it's a Greek brand producing high quality natural cosmetics.
07:00
As I know they can be bought in Sephora.
07:05
Here we have a shampoo, a hair conditioner, a shower gel, a body milk.
07:14
From gadgets we have a shoe-polish, a hair cap - useful if you use hair masks,
07:23
a teeth cleaning set, but I won't open it,
07:28
and a shaving set.
07:30
Towels of course, and here a soap.
07:36
On the right side a toilet and a bidet.
07:40
So this was the bathroom.
07:42
It's not vey big, but well planned.
07:46
Using the opportunity, let me tell you what I'm wearing.
07:53
I'm wearing my new NB shoes, I must say they're very comfortable.
08:02
I believe they're perfect for the journey.
08:05
I'm also wearing grey jeans from Laurel, they have a star motif here.
08:14
These stars are on both sides.
08:19
I also have a hooded Bench blouse in pink and grey colour,
08:29
it matches my grey pink outfit perfectly.
08:36
It's also very comfortable and great for the journey.
08:41
My outfit is perfect for today's weather, as it's a bit cool.
08:53
You'll find the names of those clothes in the description below the film,
08:57
I'll give you links to these or similar things.
09:06
And now we can move further.
09:09
Here is the other room.
09:11
This is the bedroom.
09:16
There is a double bed in the centre.
09:21
On the left we have a shelf, a weighing machine,
09:27
a mirror, a wardrobe with a standard equipment: slippers, a washing bag and bathrobes.
09:38
There is no iron, but if I need it, they'll bring it for me.
09:45
Opposite the bed there is a TV set.
09:49
Here is a secretary, place for work and another mirror.
09:56
And that's me.
09:58
Now the best thing in this apartment,
10:03
it's a view, let me show it to you.
10:12
A beautiful view on Acropolis.
10:16
That's why the name of the room is Suite Acropolis.
10:20
We have a great view on this attraction.
10:25
This was a main reason I decided on this hotel and this room.
10:33
So this is my accomodation in Athens,
10:36
I'm very happy with my choice so far.
10:39
Let me know if you like my room,
10:42
if you've ever stayed in this hotel,
10:44
or if you can recommend other 5 star hotel in Athens.
10:50
I'm waiting for your suggestions.
10:52
Last thing is the price.
10:56
I paid around 2500 EUR for 5 nights in this hotel.
11:03
Of course prices can change depending on the season, when we make a reservation, what room we choose.
11:13
It was 2500 EUR in my case.
11:15
and now when I'm done with a room tour it's hight time I eat something.
11:22
I'll go to the city,
11:24
that's why I'm here - to rest and to visit the city.
12:07
We've just got to Arcadia restaurant located near the Acropolis.
12:12
Greece specialities are served here.
12:18
As I said it's Arcadia restaurant, let me show you the menu.
12:22
I've found this restaurant on the Internet,
12:28
it had a lot of comments, most of them were very positive.
12:35
So we came here to try it.
12:37
I've decided on Arcadia salad as a main dish,
12:42
it's vegetarian and has the same name as the restaurant.
12:45
We've also ordered gyros and souvlaki.
13:01
Look how big the portions are,
13:05
here is tzatziki,
13:07
a cheese with a similar taste to halloumi,
13:10
and this is a huge salad.
13:52
Look what I've found.
13:55
This beautiful laurel wreath, I liked it a lot.
14:01
I knew it had to be mine.
14:03
It cost 5.50 EUR and I believe I look very good in it.
14:11
I think I'll wear it here in the evening.
14:14
Let me know what you think of such gadgets and if you buy such things when you travel.
14:21
I usually don't buy such things,
14:27
but this one I liked it a lot.
14:31
Also it's gold, so it had to be mine.
14:58
It's before midninght and I've just come back to the hotel.
15:02
I wanted to tell you, that the restaurant Arcadia serves very good food.
15:11
More importantly, servings are huge,
15:17
so if you ever visit this place, don't order too many positions,
15:21
even if you're very hungry,
15:23
only salads are so big it's hard to eat anything else.
15:29
Moreover, they serve enormous Amuse-bouche as well.
15:36
You can be full just after them.
15:41
I recommend you this place, it was a good choice, so I'm happy.
15:46
I also liked the service a lot,
15:48
I noticed they were trying hard, so we left a tip with pleasure.
15:56
This service was much better then the one in Polish restaurants,
16:03
but for sure it's not a rule, because after supper we went to a different place for a drink,
16:11
where we spent 40 minutes waiting for a glass of wine and drinks.
16:17
It got on our nerves and we decided to leave that place.
16:22
It was the first time in my life when I had to wait for so long for my order and finally not get it.
16:34
Let me know if it has ever happened to you.
16:38
We were very tired and we felt ignored,
16:45
so we don't feel bad at all after leaving the restaurant.
16:52
I'm curious if it has ever happened to you.
16:58
Let me know in the comments.
17:00
Using the opportunity I want to address one more topic.
17:02
When I was planning my trip to Athens I was thinking about staying in two 5 star hotels,
17:12
to get to know more of them and to compare them.
17:18
Finally I quit this idea, but I'm not sure if it was a good decision,
17:22
especially that while looking for a place to stay in Athens I searched for video reviews on Youtube,
17:31
it was almost impossible to find anything.
17:34
Very few people who visit 5 star hotels do room tours, and it's very important for me,
17:40
often these rooms look completely different on videos than on photos.
17:46
I've decided it would be vital to do such room tours more often,
17:52
but as I said, I quit the idea.
17:56
Mostly because I did't feel like moving from one place to another after a few days.
18:04
I don't know if it was a good decision.
18:07
I count on your help and advice,
18:10
would you like me to tell you about the rooms I stay in and compare them?
18:21
I'm very curious about it.
18:23
If you are interested in such vlogs, let me know in the comments.
18:31
For now I have to say goodbye as I'm very tired.
18:35
I have to get up early in the morning to film another vlog.
18:40
Thank you for your time and attention,
18:44
I encourage you to subscribe to my channel,
18:46
and see you in the next film. [~DETAIL_TEXT] => 00:36

01:06
I'll see if I have enough time.
02:03
We've just took off.
02:04
The flight will take 3 hours, so I will take a nap now.
02:08
I'll talk to you when we arrive.
02:41
A taxi driver uses very intensive perfume.
02:45
You can smell them in the whole taxi.
02:47
I think I'll see what fragrance it is.
02:50
Unfortunately, he doesn't speak English.
02:54
Here it is, the fragrance,
02:56
we understood each other.
02:58
It's going pretty well.
04:16
I've just got to my room
04:18
in Hotel Electra Metropolis.
04:21
It's 5 star hotel in the centre of Athens.
04:25
Name of the room I've chosen is Suite Acropolis
04:31
It consists of two rooms and a bathroom.
04:34
Let me show you how it all looks like.
04:38
Opposite the entrance there is the first smaller room with a fold-out sofa.
04:45
On the right there is a table with a bottle of water.
04:49
As I can see it's a gift from the hotel.
04:55
These are lukumi snacks, they're very sweet jellies.
05:01
I'll taste them later on.
05:04
Here we have a small bar,
05:07
shelves are empty,
05:11
but here we have a mini fridge,
05:14
as in most hotels.
05:16
I'll have a look, as I'm always curious what rarities I may find in a hotel fridge.
05:20
I can see Grey Goose wodka, mineral water Korpi,
05:27
it's a perfect water for corp workers.
05:30
Hence the name.
05:33
Standard things - wine, juices, coca-cola with a Santa Claus for some reason.
05:40
It's long before Christmas, but OK.
05:45
Here we can find different snacks,
05:51
nuts, chips, here is a tea.
05:56
Coffee, a coffee machine and a kettle.
05:59
This is how the smaller room looks like.
06:02
There is also a window through which we can get to the balcony.
06:06
I'll show it later.
06:08
Leaving the room, there is a wardrobe on the right.
06:13
Standard things inside: slippers and a bathrobe.
06:19
One more wardrobe is here, next to the entrance door.
06:24
Inside there is a safe.
06:26
On the right from the entrance there is a bathroom.
06:30
Bathtub connected with the shower.
06:36
Here is a sponge with a logo,
06:41
basin in the middle of the bathroom,
06:45
hairdryer, magnifying mirror.
06:49
Here are some cosmetics, I like checking them out as you know.
06:54
Cosmetics from Korres brand,
06:56
it's a Greek brand producing high quality natural cosmetics.
07:00
As I know they can be bought in Sephora.
07:05
Here we have a shampoo, a hair conditioner, a shower gel, a body milk.
07:14
From gadgets we have a shoe-polish, a hair cap - useful if you use hair masks,
07:23
a teeth cleaning set, but I won't open it,
07:28
and a shaving set.
07:30
Towels of course, and here a soap.
07:36
On the right side a toilet and a bidet.
07:40
So this was the bathroom.
07:42
It's not vey big, but well planned.
07:46
Using the opportunity, let me tell you what I'm wearing.
07:53
I'm wearing my new NB shoes, I must say they're very comfortable.
08:02
I believe they're perfect for the journey.
08:05
I'm also wearing grey jeans from Laurel, they have a star motif here.
08:14
These stars are on both sides.
08:19
I also have a hooded Bench blouse in pink and grey colour,
08:29
it matches my grey pink outfit perfectly.
08:36
It's also very comfortable and great for the journey.
08:41
My outfit is perfect for today's weather, as it's a bit cool.
08:53
You'll find the names of those clothes in the description below the film,
08:57
I'll give you links to these or similar things.
09:06
And now we can move further.
09:09
Here is the other room.
09:11
This is the bedroom.
09:16
There is a double bed in the centre.
09:21
On the left we have a shelf, a weighing machine,
09:27
a mirror, a wardrobe with a standard equipment: slippers, a washing bag and bathrobes.
09:38
There is no iron, but if I need it, they'll bring it for me.
09:45
Opposite the bed there is a TV set.
09:49
Here is a secretary, place for work and another mirror.
09:56
And that's me.
09:58
Now the best thing in this apartment,
10:03
it's a view, let me show it to you.
10:12
A beautiful view on Acropolis.
10:16
That's why the name of the room is Suite Acropolis.
10:20
We have a great view on this attraction.
10:25
This was a main reason I decided on this hotel and this room.
10:33
So this is my accomodation in Athens,
10:36
I'm very happy with my choice so far.
10:39
Let me know if you like my room,
10:42
if you've ever stayed in this hotel,
10:44
or if you can recommend other 5 star hotel in Athens.
10:50
I'm waiting for your suggestions.
10:52
Last thing is the price.
10:56
I paid around 2500 EUR for 5 nights in this hotel.
11:03
Of course prices can change depending on the season, when we make a reservation, what room we choose.
11:13
It was 2500 EUR in my case.
11:15
and now when I'm done with a room tour it's hight time I eat something.
11:22
I'll go to the city,
11:24
that's why I'm here - to rest and to visit the city.
12:07
We've just got to Arcadia restaurant located near the Acropolis.
12:12
Greece specialities are served here.
12:18
As I said it's Arcadia restaurant, let me show you the menu.
12:22
I've found this restaurant on the Internet,
12:28
it had a lot of comments, most of them were very positive.
12:35
So we came here to try it.
12:37
I've decided on Arcadia salad as a main dish,
12:42
it's vegetarian and has the same name as the restaurant.
12:45
We've also ordered gyros and souvlaki.
13:01
Look how big the portions are,
13:05
here is tzatziki,
13:07
a cheese with a similar taste to halloumi,
13:10
and this is a huge salad.
13:52
Look what I've found.
13:55
This beautiful laurel wreath, I liked it a lot.
14:01
I knew it had to be mine.
14:03
It cost 5.50 EUR and I believe I look very good in it.
14:11
I think I'll wear it here in the evening.
14:14
Let me know what you think of such gadgets and if you buy such things when you travel.
14:21
I usually don't buy such things,
14:27
but this one I liked it a lot.
14:31
Also it's gold, so it had to be mine.
14:58
It's before midninght and I've just come back to the hotel.
15:02
I wanted to tell you, that the restaurant Arcadia serves very good food.
15:11
More importantly, servings are huge,
15:17
so if you ever visit this place, don't order too many positions,
15:21
even if you're very hungry,
15:23
only salads are so big it's hard to eat anything else.
15:29
Moreover, they serve enormous Amuse-bouche as well.
15:36
You can be full just after them.
15:41
I recommend you this place, it was a good choice, so I'm happy.
15:46
I also liked the service a lot,
15:48
I noticed they were trying hard, so we left a tip with pleasure.
15:56
This service was much better then the one in Polish restaurants,
16:03
but for sure it's not a rule, because after supper we went to a different place for a drink,
16:11
where we spent 40 minutes waiting for a glass of wine and drinks.
16:17
It got on our nerves and we decided to leave that place.
16:22
It was the first time in my life when I had to wait for so long for my order and finally not get it.
16:34
Let me know if it has ever happened to you.
16:38
We were very tired and we felt ignored,
16:45
so we don't feel bad at all after leaving the restaurant.
16:52
I'm curious if it has ever happened to you.
16:58
Let me know in the comments.
17:00
Using the opportunity I want to address one more topic.
17:02
When I was planning my trip to Athens I was thinking about staying in two 5 star hotels,
17:12
to get to know more of them and to compare them.
17:18
Finally I quit this idea, but I'm not sure if it was a good decision,
17:22
especially that while looking for a place to stay in Athens I searched for video reviews on Youtube,
17:31
it was almost impossible to find anything.
17:34
Very few people who visit 5 star hotels do room tours, and it's very important for me,
17:40
often these rooms look completely different on videos than on photos.
17:46
I've decided it would be vital to do such room tours more often,
17:52
but as I said, I quit the idea.
17:56
Mostly because I did't feel like moving from one place to another after a few days.
18:04
I don't know if it was a good decision.
18:07
I count on your help and advice,
18:10
would you like me to tell you about the rooms I stay in and compare them?
18:21
I'm very curious about it.
18:23
If you are interested in such vlogs, let me know in the comments.
18:31
For now I have to say goodbye as I'm very tired.
18:35
I have to get up early in the morning to film another vlog.
18:40
Thank you for your time and attention,
18:44
I encourage you to subscribe to my channel,
18:46

Video subtitles: European Hotels - What You Should Know About Hotels in Europe

00:02
hey there fellow travelers mark here
00:05
with Walters world it wouldn't Salzburg
00:07
Austria a great place to go to and we're
00:09
staying the wolf dietrich hotel the
00:11
hotel with obvious is some pretty cool
00:12
design in their rooms and things like
00:14
that what I thought I'd give you is
00:16
basically what you should know about
00:18
European hotels before you come to
00:21
Europe because I'll tell you the Holiday
00:23
Inn Express that you get in Champaign
00:25
Illinois is not the same as the hotel
00:27
you're getting in a Salzburg Austria so
00:29
we're going to do is going to go through
00:30
some of the basic differences so you're
00:32
kind of prepared for your hotel stay in
00:35
Europe okay now I will preface this my
00:38
hotels are pretty different throughout
00:40
Europe but there are some consistencies
00:42
usually aside from this room usually the
00:45
hotels are very small they're much small
00:47
and you have in the US and it's a lot
00:48
more intimate setting so just be ready
00:50
to really get to know your neighbors and
00:52
get to know people in the elevator and
00:53
it breakfasts and things like that okay
00:55
so not as big of rooms and we'll just
00:57
start out with that one fact you're
00:58
gonna have a lot smaller rooms but
01:00
before you actually get your hotel how
01:02
do you book your hotel hotels in Europe
01:04
and bed-and-breakfast in Europe have
01:06
gone all in in online bookings so your
01:09
bookings calm your Trip Advisor's all
01:12
these things you can book through there
01:14
pretty much any accommodation throughout
01:16
Europe and that makes it fantastic so
01:18
you can read the reviews and see if it's
01:20
right for you is it for kids is it for
01:22
families is it for a romantic getaway
01:24
you know these kind of things and who
01:26
the lights come on and everything you
01:28
know what is you're really looking for
01:29
so booking online is a really easy way
01:32
to do it also you can pay that way now
01:34
sometimes you might want special
01:36
requests and a lot of times you're
01:37
booked online through like a TripAdvisor
01:39
bookings those special requests you're
01:41
not always sure if they're gonna
01:42
actually get through so you can also
01:44
call the hotel and believe me they'll
01:46
speak English where they'll find some of
01:47
the speaks English that won't be a
01:49
problem or email them directly because
01:51
again they've gone all in for their
01:53
online presence so they'll have websites
01:55
and Facebook pages and stuff like that
01:57
so you can get your information if you
01:59
need it so if you need a baby bed or an
02:00
extra bed or something like that okay so
02:02
booking Europe simplest can be now next
02:05
thing is when you get to the hotel you
02:07
want to find a check-in okay now
02:09
check-in and Europe usually where you're
02:10
going to have to do you'll need your
02:11
passport and the credit card you booked
02:13
with
02:14
not every place will ask for but make
02:16
make sure you have those relatively easy
02:17
to get now so you're probably come for
02:19
the train station don't have them out
02:21
but you'll have your money about ready
02:22
to get out so if you need to get them
02:23
out you can now probably going to fill
02:26
out on your forms your registration
02:27
you're going to need your birthday
02:29
address typical things you're going to
02:31
need some countries for example Italy
02:33
they need to scan your passport or
02:35
photocopy of your passport and report it
02:37
to the police
02:38
so then you're registered there here in
02:40
Austria they asked for one passport from
02:42
our entire group and that was fine
02:44
because they're the ones that made the
02:45
made a check-in so some places everybody
02:48
in the group will have to put their
02:49
passports in other times only one person
02:51
and that's all okay now what's cool is
02:54
the check-in desks here are usually very
02:56
helpful for example one thing I
02:58
recommend always ask for the tourist map
03:00
when you do go to the hotel downstairs
03:03
the people here at the wolf dietrich
03:04
they got us a map they're circled here
03:06
you were on the hotel or here's the
03:08
hotel map seat seemed a nice little X
03:10
here's where you go here's where I
03:12
recommend you to see go eat and things
03:13
like that
03:14
now the thing is the people I find in
03:16
Europe the hotel staff the front desk
03:18
staff are really well trained and
03:20
telling you where to go eat where to
03:21
drink where to make merry how to see the
03:23
sights what public transport to take so
03:26
that can be really helpful this thing is
03:27
going to be your most helpful get that
03:29
tourist map so you don't have to care
03:30
around your big guidebooks all the time
03:32
you can just have this and I'm gonna
03:34
have your spots marked off okay now once
03:37
you get on check-in you're going to take
03:38
your well and hopefully there's an
03:41
elevator there's not always elevators at
03:43
all these hotels okay so make sure if
03:45
you you have problems going upstairs
03:46
with heavy luggage make sure you ask is
03:48
there an elevator now 99% of the time
03:51
there is but bed and breakfast --is and
03:53
smaller places there may not be okay and
03:55
when you take the elevator what you
03:57
should know is elevators in Europe are
03:59
significantly smaller and then they are
04:01
in the u.s. especially the hotel
04:03
elevators okay so sometimes the
04:05
elevators can take two people up or one
04:06
person in luggage sometimes you'll have
04:08
to actually pull a screen across to
04:11
actually open the door okay and one
04:13
thing that gets Americans kind of mixed
04:15
up when they when they go come to Europe
04:16
is the elevator the ground floor is
04:19
usually zero or G for ground floor or e
04:22
and like for example here and Gasol
04:24
ground floor they have that and then the
04:26
first floor up that's one so you may
04:28
think Oh what says we're on the second
04:30
floor I can walk up two flights of
04:32
stairs
04:32
no that's walking up three flights of
04:34
stairs okay so if you get some big
04:35
luggage that can be a little problematic
04:38
so elevators tiny tiny tiny and you're
04:41
starting one floor up now we've gotten
04:44
to our room now the thing is with your
04:45
rooms here in Europe yes you could have
04:47
keys or you can have the key cards it
04:49
doesn't really matter which one you are
04:51
one thing you might want to know is if
04:53
you get a key that's like a big Bell or
04:55
a big like thing on the end a lot of
04:57
times the smaller hotels and private
05:00
hotels will say please leave your key
05:01
with us when you leave okay that's what
05:03
they have 24-hour front desk they don't
05:06
have 24-hour front desk they're gonna
05:07
let you take your keys don't worry about
05:08
that but just now sometimes you gotta
05:10
leave your keys most the time you've
05:11
done now we're in the room now the most
05:14
important part of your room is your bed
05:16
beds and Europe look if you get a double
05:18
room in Europe it's two single beds okay
05:22
it's not two queen beds like you have at
05:23
a Holiday Inn or a Best Western or
05:26
something like that it's two single beds
05:27
and sometimes now sometimes you get
05:29
lucky and you have a double bed like
05:30
this which doesn't have a crack in it
05:32
but most of the time again when they're
05:34
double beds they're just push together
05:35
okay you have a crack in the middle and
05:37
the funny thing is that crack we've lost
05:39
children we actually asked my dad once
05:42
because the beds separated my that was
05:44
my mom my dad and me we're super hotel
05:46
Frankfort and the cry was thinner that's
05:49
just so you know it accredited ruined
05:51
this with and also my dad goes
05:52
right through the middle
05:53
we've lost Caleb and Liam a couple times
05:55
too so be ready for that crack in the
05:57
bed okay which which might be a little
06:00
shocking also if your travel with a
06:02
friend and you don't feel like being
06:03
very snugly together
06:05
well the beds you can easily separate
06:06
it's no problem okay also the beds here
06:09
a lot of times there's slat beds okay
06:11
there like here beds and so they've wood
06:13
slats underneath if you're a heavy guy
06:15
like me
06:15
you better not be jumping on that bed
06:17
cuz you will snap through it and
06:18
breaking okay not a really cool thing to
06:21
happen but you should be prepared for
06:23
that so you know no joking down the beds
06:24
you see your kids jumping on the bed say
06:26
no no it's going to fall apart okay now
06:28
what are some other things you might
06:29
want to know about hotels in Europe well
06:31
one thing if you want to go to the
06:33
bathroom now in the bathrooms here I'll
06:35
I'll take you to the bathroom okay so
06:37
here's the toilet
06:38
it now obviously the normal sit-down
06:39
toilet you have that Europe the only
06:41
times you ever see the hole in ground
06:42
toilets or kind of public toilets maybe
06:44
someplace in Italy or Greece your if you
06:46
don't see them too often so you're
06:47
always going to have a normal sit-down
06:48
toilet and you'll see there's the two
06:50
buttons up top there's a big button and
06:51
a little button the little button is if
06:54
you do little like pee-pee the big
06:56
button is if you do something bigger
06:57
sometimes you'll see one dot or two dots
07:00
one dot number one two dots number two
07:03
also some hotels in some bathrooms you
07:06
actually have to hold down the button so
07:07
all the water goes so you really control
07:09
the whole flow so if you do your
07:11
business please respect the other people
07:13
after you and make sure it all goes down
07:14
okay now what else do you want to do I
07:17
also want to take a shower when you're
07:18
here okay so we're in the shower area
07:20
the bath area now I'm not going to lie
07:22
to you most hotels in Europe don't have
07:23
the clawfoot you know tub this is
07:25
literally the nicest hotel I've ever
07:27
stayed in Europe it's fantastic
07:29
but there's one thing that they have
07:30
here in their shower bathtub area that
07:33
is very common in Europe and you have
07:35
the hold it shower now the thing is some
07:37
people will say it'll be hanging up on
07:38
the wall and they won't take it off you
07:40
can take it off the wall and use it to
07:42
bathe yourself just fine really great if
07:44
you got kids all kinds of stuff but I
07:46
met a lot of tourists I didn't realize
07:47
oh I can take that off yes that's why it
07:50
has the hose so you can wash around in
07:52
here if you've got kids bathtubs are not
07:55
very common in in the showers and the
07:58
toilets in Europe usually your shower is
08:01
very small and if your big guy like me I
08:03
mean you sometimes you barely fit in ok
08:06
so just be prepared for that um
08:08
sometimes actually seeing showers where
08:10
some of the shower and the toilet are
08:12
almost the same place so just know again
08:14
tiny spaces tiny tiny spaces sometimes
08:17
it's hard to get everything washed every
08:20
time so make sure you're watching ok so
08:22
what are some other things that are
08:23
different by European hotels so another
08:25
thing you might want to know about is
08:26
the TV I know I know
08:28
I'm here to travel I'm here to explore I
08:30
don't have time to watch TV I agree with
08:33
you but the thing is after you go into
08:35
the Salt Mines in the morning and going
08:37
to see the Cathedral in the afternoon
08:38
and then going up to the fortress up on
08:40
them up on the hill in the evening you
08:43
get kind of tired and after you know
08:44
that vina so and all those great
08:45
pastries here you just want to sit back
08:48
relax when you get to the hotel put on
08:50
TV
08:51
to show and go to bed now the thing is
08:53
what you should know is TV in Europe is
08:55
different in every country in terms of
08:57
the language places like Sweden Finland
08:59
Portugal they don't dub it all of it
09:02
will be in English or French or whatever
09:03
with subtitles on the bottom whereas in
09:06
Germany or here in Austria they actually
09:08
dub it into German so you might see your
09:10
favorite show
09:11
Oh Doctor Who's on awesome and Doctor
09:15
Who speaking German what it's because
09:18
here they're dubbing everything and that
09:20
just depends where you go some places
09:22
actually have some channels that have
09:23
both but I will say here should kind of
09:25
give in every country hotel room TV
09:28
Guide you're going to have four or five
09:30
local channels kind of like the ABC
09:32
network or CBS or NBC Fox in the u.s.
09:36
you'll have those you have a couple
09:38
sports channels you're usually Eurosport
09:40
okay you'll have euronews which isn't
09:42
just news at all a bunch of different
09:43
languages and then you're going to have
09:45
a traditional CN international debate
09:48
song or the French TV channel okay arty
09:51
which is Russia today all right
09:53
and then you probably like BBC news
09:55
horse maybe Sky News okay so a lot of
09:57
times what happens is the only time you
09:59
know America has really watched a lot of
10:01
news and these kind of things is when
10:02
they go abroad because that's the only
10:04
English Channel that's on there now what
10:06
are some other differences in the hotel
10:07
now in the US we kind of feel like Wi-Fi
10:10
is our god-given right well in Europe
10:12
it's not always the case but most hotels
10:14
in Europe will have Wi-Fi don't expect a
10:17
super strong signal so you can watch
10:19
Netflix pay Netflix doesn't work in
10:21
every country by the way but don't
10:23
expect a super strong signal if you got
10:25
to do work sometimes you got to go out
10:27
and find internet cafe which are very
10:28
hard to find now now some other things
10:30
that are different so I'll go back to
10:31
the bathroom kind of stuff one thing
10:33
toilets you can throw the toilet paper
10:36
down the the toilet just fine tampons
10:39
and feminine hygiene products usually
10:41
they'll have bags you'll throw them is
10:43
way on the side because a lot of places
10:44
in Europe the piping isn't can't handle
10:46
that kind of stuff so those kind of
10:48
products so it makes your junior is not
10:50
to run stuff down the toilet okay now
10:52
another thing in terms of the tours are
10:55
the toilets and stuff like that are the
10:57
towels now just like every hotel the
10:59
towels here are like drying with a sheet
11:02
okay I'll just tell you about
11:03
that so expect to use all your towels in
11:06
Europe they do not give you washcloths
11:08
okay the last ten hotels I've been to
11:10
one place gave me washcloths so that's
11:11
the own one I've ever remembered
11:12
actually giving me washcloths so if
11:14
you're a washcloth person like my
11:16
mother's a like psychotic about it and
11:18
joseline is psychotic about it they
11:20
actually bring a stack of throwaway ones
11:21
so they use it for a few days in hotel
11:23
then when they leave poop get rid of it
11:24
okay so just be ready for that also
11:27
hotels in Europe are a great place for
11:29
breakfast a typical European breakfast
11:31
they call a continental breakfast
11:33
meaning continental Europe
11:34
you're going to have rolls and bread
11:36
slices of cheese slices of meats some
11:39
and then some jams that stuff to put on
11:41
top and usually some cereals and if
11:44
you're nicer place they might have
11:45
scrambled eggs or baker's sausages
11:47
depending where you are so you can get a
11:48
really good breakfast a really good meal
11:50
in the morning to start your day off so
11:52
you can go and explore as much as you
11:54
want and save some money by having not
11:56
having to have lunch or skip a meal be
11:57
so much your great breakfast --is most
12:00
arrests for most breakfasts is in Europe
12:02
or from like 7:00 to 11:00 checkout
12:04
times in Europe usually are between
12:07
eleven and twelve o'clock one of those
12:08
two ones all right another thing you
12:10
want to look at is the hotel bar yes we
12:12
all love the bar for the drinks and the
12:14
snacks and stuff like that
12:15
but also what you need to know is in
12:17
Europe a lot of the stores closed
12:18
relatively early they don't have 24
12:20
hours shopping here so if you need a
12:22
bottle of water because you're thirsty
12:24
hey the hotel bar might be your only
12:27
option whether it's a snack I know we
12:29
were in Norway all the restaurants
12:30
everything was closed you know I went
12:32
down the hotel bar what can I do
12:34
person front tested here come over the
12:36
bar he got me a water and a quick lunch
12:38
this KitKat thing and I was fine another
12:41
thing is if you look into hotels water
12:42
around Europe you can drink it just
12:44
might not taste good so that's why you
12:46
see a lot of Europeans drinking water
12:48
whether with bubbles or without bubbles
12:50
some places like Sweden the tap water so
12:52
good you just want to like sit on
12:53
anything oh so good other places like
12:57
Berlin Berlin's got a lot of chalk in
12:59
the water so you take a drink and you're
13:00
actually thirst year afterwards so
13:02
that's why a lot of Europeans drink the
13:04
bottled water and your hotel bar can
13:06
help you out with that and the last
13:07
thing I want to talk about is if you can
13:08
see I'm a little hot and sweaty here is
13:10
the AC air-conditioning European hotels
13:14
don't always have air-conditioning they
13:16
do usually always
13:17
heating's at least have that or lots of
13:19
blankets to warm up to but some of the
13:21
times there is no AC so be prepared for
13:23
that that's why you know I have actually
13:25
the windows closed and everything so I
13:26
can film but usually you're going to be
13:28
open your windows to let the breeze
13:29
through the hotels may they'll give you
13:31
fans and stuff like that to cool off but
13:34
usually expect probably not too much AC
13:36
now if you're in Greece and stuff like
13:38
that you'll see units up on the wall
13:39
okay well you'll get a remote control
13:41
for that all right so just so you know
13:43
anyway those are some of the things I
13:45
think you need to know about booking
13:47
hotels before you go if you have other
13:49
questions about booking hotels please
