Two stars

Basically similar to the above. The rooms needs to have own bathrooms, Tv set and a breakfast included. Also a parking space is recommended for two stars hotels, and an elevator for buildings higher than 4 levels. A single room needs to be at least 9 mĀ?, and be equipped with a bed at least 90 x 200 cm.

Another recommendation for this standard is to have a room service for 12 hours a day, a cafeteria, shop, tourists information and small restaurant.

Three stars

As above, but with couple of improvements – bigger rooms with own bathrooms. Pay as-you-go Tv, air conditioning, every day exchange of sheets and towels along with the room cleaning.

This classification is not right for all of the countries of EU. Each country has its own classification system and some of the facilities mentioned here are not obligatory for this or that type of the hotel. Some European hotels do not have the requirements for size of the room in 3 star hotels or for air conditioning.
