Please give me your input on this. We will be going to London and Paris for the first time in May. I've read that wash cloths are not provided in most hotels. Is that correct? Also read that we should plan on taking some soap-----all things you wouldn't think to take to a hotel in the US. We are staying at the Premier Inn Victoria in London and Hotel Bonaparte in Paris. My brother tells me that there are no drain stoppers either. I have no idea what to expect, but I know we don't want to buy a bunch of essentials when we are there. We also read that most showers with a tub have no curtain and the whole bathroom gets soaked. Anyone have any experience with this? Thanks for all your help in advance!
