What is the difference of a double room and a twin room in a hotel?

Best Answer - a double room has a double bed and a twin room has 2 twin beds

------------

They are the same in terms of capacity: a maximum of two people can stay in either room.

Their difference lie in the bedding configuration.

A double bedroom would have one big bed - either a double queen sized bed, or a double king-sized bed, spacious enough for two people. This is the preferred room of most couples or a pair of people who don't mind sharing one bed. Most standard rooms are double bedrooms, suitable for 1-2 persons.

A twin bedroom would have two single beds. This is ideal for two people who want to have their own beds in a single room.
