Subject: Re: Barcelona Hotel- heard half the advice

Excellent point!

A friend of mine went on a bicycle tour of the french countryside with a very upscale tour company. They stayed in a different gorgeous chateau every night. She was travelling alone and was warned about getting stuck w/ the servant's room, as you described, so she paid a supplement and got the lovely double room. Those that opted for the single rooms were often not happy.

Thanks for mentioning that. It's the kind of thing that can make or break a trip.
