  1. In the UK the terminology for double and twin rooms is pretty much standard across the board – twin for two, double for one big enough for two. Simple!

  2. Could you provide a little more information? I’m still a little unsure of what the differences are here…

  3. ‘Two guys’ or ‘two girls’ will also choose a double room, if they are in a relationship together.
