Searching for accommodation

Hi there

It would really help if, in the search engine, we could also search for number of bathrooms and not just number of bedrooms. For those of us travelling with people who prefer their own bathroom, it would save substantial time. No-one does it, either!

It's an standard international practice with hotels to not list the number of bathrooms, as the default is one. They will however, make a point of stating that a particular room will have a second or more bathrooms or a seperate toilet, IF it were the case.

Another reason for this is that when they provide descriptors; A) they don't want the bathroom to be a focal point, B) they have limited space in their descriptor and they don't want to be using up character space talking about the bathroom, C) again the default number is one bathroom.

The one thing that is not always consistent, is whether the bathroom has a standalone shower, or a shower over the bathtub.

That seems time consuming for the TripAdvisor team and there are a few issues with the idea as KVE1005 pointed out. Although it would be a handy accessory for some travelers. I suggest if you see a hotel that interests you, go on to the actual website of the establishment and usually the more pricey rooms would be most likely to contain a second bathroom and if they do not then no other rooms on the website will. I hope that helps but it may only work for me because I enjoy viewing hotel room images.
