What does a double room mean
Hotel room codes: Meaning of the abbreviations and room types
Almost all tour operators use it Abbreviations for your hotel rooms, this will still be the case in 2021. These room codes stand for different room categories, mostly in connection with a package tour. In the catalogs (and also on the travel portals on the Internet) there are terms such as "A2A", "DZX1" or "Type 1", with which one can not do much at first. Some hotels only have two different codes (for example large and small double rooms), but some accommodations have the same number of different room types (with a sea view, without a minibar, or even single rooms with a kitchenette).
Apartments, bungalows and holiday flats also have their own codes, suites and studios, of course.
List of hotel abbreviations for room types
So that you know exactly what kind of room you are booking, you should make yourselves beforehand the meaning of the room codes look at. I have compiled these lists for you as a “Hotel Lexicon” or “Abbreviation Wiki”.
Attention: The codes are not really standardized! It may well be that Hotel-X understands “A2T” as a double room with a terrace, while Hotel-Y provides an apartment with 2 bedrooms. So you should definitely consult the declaration of your provider or organizer linked here! Only the respective hotel or the tour operator can break down the abbreviation in a really binding manner!
Tip: With the key combination Ctrl + F you can search this page for your organizer (or code)!
Ticketing without cryptic abbreviation: Almost all trips are also available through HolidayCheck (often well described).
Overview of room codes
Room abbreviations used by travel and hotel providers
Here you will find the room code tables of popular online travel portals such as HolidayCheck, Weg.de and Expedia. The meanings are broken down differently, unfortunately not every provider has good explanations ready.
Room abbreviations used by the tour operator
The list is sorted by tour operator, these usually have exact definitions of the room codes. But there are differences from hotel to hotel. Only the service description directly from your organizer or hotel is 100% binding! Many room abbreviations apply to several organizers, so they are not listed more than once in the table. The same abbreviations apply to “travel” and “only hotel”.

Danger: Of course, I cannot guarantee the accuracy of the Zimmer definitions in this dictionary. Every organizer (sometimes every hotel) has its own abbreviation system and its own hotel room types (despite DIN 77001). Sometimes the names of the room codes even change from year to year. That is probably the reason why Wikipedia does not have a list of hotel abbreviations.
Self-help: For many event organizers, the room code consists of 3 or 4 characters. With luck, you can also get the hotel's catalog code using this system decrypt yourself:
- The first sign stands for the general Type of room (e.g. room, apartment or bungalow)
- The second character is usually a number and names it Number of people or (adult)beds
- The third or last character describes the quality or Equipment of the room (e.g. sea view, deluxe room with sitting area or large family room)
Other tourism abbreviations and booking codes
The tourism industry likes weird booking codes and abbreviations. Whether this is due to the laziness of writing or the software and travel catalogs used? Maybe the tour guides can talk their way out better if they have a complaint afterwards. 😉
In any case, besides the room hieroglyphs, there are a whole host of other cryptic travel abbreviations. A collection of many hotel abbreviations can be found below.
|Abbreviation / Code||definition|
|Meal codes in the hotel|
|LP||according to the program, so it is more precisely defined somewhere|
|AI||All inclusive catering (all meals and drinks)|
|HP||Half board (breakfast and dinner)|
|VP||Full board (breakfast, lunch and dinner)|
|Room facilities in the hotel|
|WP||Whirlpool (possibly in the room)|
|KL, AC||Air conditioning|
|MA||Duplex room on two levels / two floors|
|Beds in the hotel room|
|DR / CLOSE||Double room with extra bed|
|DZ / 2ZU||Double room with 2 extra beds|
|Twin||2 single beds (possibly next to each other, but separable)|
|King size||very large double bed (usually at least 180cm wide)|
|Queen size||small double bed (140 to 160cm wide)|
|DBL / DBL||2 large king size beds next to each other|
|Wall Bed||Foldaway bed on the wall|
The German Tourism Association has the 72 abbreviations of DIN standard 77001 published in a list. The standardization was created in 1999 and should be the abbreviation for Room facilities, room type and location unify (which obviously only worked to a limited extent).
Last but not least, we define the general room types, without any specific frills. Many readers are familiar with the general terms, but we should still record the exact description here. For example, if you book a trip with an overnight stay in a "double room", what can you expect?
What is a single room?
The single room is suitable for single travelers or individuals and is often equipped with a bed approx. 90 cm x 200 cm (single bed). In many hotels there is no typical single room, but a double room for single use, in which a whole double bed is available to the single traveler.
What is a double room?
The double room is designed for two people, e.g. for couples or friends. The room for two is equipped with a king-size (approx. 180 cm x 200 cm) or queen-size (approx. 140/160 cm x 200 cm) double bed. Basically, the double room is slightly larger than a single room.
What is a twin room?
The twin room is similarly equipped as the double room and is also designed for two people, but there are two single beds that are separate from each other.
What is a family room?
The family room can accommodate at least three people, at least two of whom are adults. Family rooms are equipped with either a double bed and a single bed or two double beds.
What is a bungalow?
A bungalow is a one-story house. The equipment varies greatly, often it has a living room, a bedroom and a kitchen or kitchenette. In some cases, however, it can also be a combined living / sleeping area. The bungalow is designed for two or more people.
What is an apartment?
The apartment has separate living rooms and bedrooms as well as a kitchenette / kitchen. It is comparable to a holiday apartment, but is located in a hotel or in an apartment complex. A simple apartment is designed for two people, while larger apartments can accommodate more people.
What is a studio?
The studio consists of one room with a double bed and a kitchenette. There is space for two people.
What is a junior suite?
A junior suite is an upscale type of room, which is equipped with a double bed and additional space for a seat.
What is a shared room?
The shared room can accommodate at least three people or more. The multi-bed room, also called dormitory, can be found mainly in hostels, but also in hotels. The room is often furnished with loft beds. The bathroom is in the hallway and is used by several rooms. Sometimes the bathroom is directly connected to the shared room. Shared rooms have the advantage that they are very cheap. Many travelers sleep in shared rooms to socialize with other travelers.
What is an economy room?
Economy rooms, also known as low cost rooms, are offered at low budget prices in order to increase the occupancy rate of the hotel. The equipment corresponds to a standard room. There are economy rooms without disadvantages, but in most cases there are deficits in the economy room. Examples are: economy rooms without balcony, economy rooms with restricted view or economy rooms without air conditioning.
