Soaps in hotels

Hello,

My husband and I will be traveling to Italy next month. I have found that all of our hotels provide soaps and shampoos. I was wondering if I can take the extra's we don't use or if we will be charged for them. I always collect them to donate to a homeless shelter where I live. thanks for any input!

Of course. But you may find that hotels there are significantly less generous with soap and shampoo than most hotels in the USA.

A lot of hotels now provide soap in dispensers fixed to the walls and so you may not actually have the option.

Thanks for the two quick replies! From what I can see on the hotel pics and traveler pics, each bathroom has several small bottles of stuff on the vanity. I just don't want to get charged for taking them! Thanks again! I'm so excited to actually be going there!

The soaps and lotions are included in the price of the room, they are yours. Although if you remove them too early thinking they will be replaced, they might not!

It depends where/what hotel you will be staying at. The nicer/pricier hotels provide a nicer selection of bathroom necessaries. You can pack them all to take home.

You won't be charged, feel free to take them and a very good initiative giving them to homeless shelters.
