What is an ensuite room?

Travel Forums General Talk What is an ensuite room?

Can someone explain what it is to me? I think it's referring to having a private bathroom but just want to make sure before booking. Also check out this link if you can:

It has twin private ensuite. Does that mean the kitchen, lounge etc are shared? Thanks.

Ensuite does mean private bathroom....when I click on the link you gave it brings me to the main booking page on TP (so I can't help you with specifics). Unless otherwise specified, your room should only consist of bedroom and bathroom. The main information page for the hotel/hostel should give you an idea of what other types of facilities they may have (kitchen, lounge, etc) and those are usually shared.

Hi Ebisoba,

You're right, that's a room with two single beds and a private bathroom.

If you want your own kitchen (and lounge) as well, you would need to look for an apartment, rather than a hostel or hotel. It is the most private kind of accommodation you could get pretty much. Most hostels have a shared kitchen that you can use though, which is a good way to save money as eating out becomes quite expensive (or very unhealthy).

Ah interesting. I will chase this up with our booking partner, as it looks like a strange setup to me. I'll get back to you :)

Hi Ebisoba,

Here is the answer from the property owner.

The thing is that we have two apartments in the same area.
Twin private ensuite is an apartment ( 55 sqm )

2 bedrooms
1 living room
1 bathroom
complete kitchen

So the bedrooms are separate and 1 bathroom.

Hope it helps :)

Cheers,
Peter
