It is a commercial establishment providing lodging, meals, and other guest services. In general, to be called a hotel, an establishment must have a minimum of six letting bedrooms, at least three of which must have attached ensuite private bathroom facilities. Although hotels are classified into ‘Star’ categories 1-Star to 5-Star, there is no standard method of assigning these ratings, and compliance with customary requirements is voluntary. A US hotel with a certain rating, for example, may look very different from a European or Asian hotel with the same rating, and would provide a different level of amenities, range of facilities, and quality of service. Whereas hotel chains assure uniform standards throughout, non-chain hotels even within the same country may not agree on the same standards.

The guide below is by necessity a generalization, as star ratings are awarded by each country according to their own rules, and the difference between a 3-star and a 4-star may be something as obscure as having a minibar in each room.

One-star hotels

1-Star hotel provides a limited range of amenities and services, but adheres to a high standard of facility-wide cleanliness.

You don’t see many of these, and with reason. One-stars are not just no-frills, but often downright dodgy: rooms are barely functional, shared bathrooms are somewhere down a corridor and the painted ladies from the all-hours karaoke bar next door dance the horizontal tango all night long in the room next to yours.

Two-star hotels

2-Star hotel provides good accommodation and better equipped bedrooms, each with a telephone and attached private bathroom.

Two stars means no-frills hotel. In many countries, two stars means that your room may have its own bathroom and perhaps a TV.

Three-star hotels

3-Star hotel has more spacious rooms and adds high class decorations and furnishings and color TV. It also offers one or more bars or lounges.

Three-star hotels are solid but dull. Your room will have an attached bathroom and there’s probably a restaurant downstairs and 24-hour reception service.

Four-star hotels

4-Star hotel is much more comfortable and larger, and provides excellent cuisine (table d’hote and a la carte), room service, and other amenities.

The four-star hotel is a good business hotel. Everything works smoothly, there’s Internet in every room, a well-equipped business center, they’ll arrange your airport transfer and room service is palatable and only somewhat expensive.

Five star hotel

5-Star hotel offers most luxurious premises, widest range of guest services, as well as swimming pool and sport and exercise facilities.

The five-star hotel is the quintessential luxury hotel, offering thrills above and beyond the actual needs of the travel. They have restaurants and night spots that are world class, with food and entertainment that draw non-guests to sample it too.

Five star hotels also tend to have opulent and expensive decorations; fancy gyms, swimming pools and spas. Major five-star chains compete to offer the most ludicrous thrills imaginable:

Unrated hotels

Unrated hotels are a mixed bag. Most, it is safe to say, are hotels that are either too dodgy to achieve even the meager requirements of a one-star or, alternatively, too small and personal to be able to offer 24-hour room service, although the service and amenities offered are otherwise of five-star caliber.

There are also selective hotel groups for smaller properties that generally select for high quality, boutique hotels.


Single rooms are for single travelers. In many hotels, a single room is actually the same as a double room.

Double rooms are for two travelers sleeping in the same bed.

Twin rooms have two separate single beds.

Triple rooms have three separate beds, or a double bed plus a single bed.

Quads rooms are designed for 4 people or more.

Suites are complete apartments with multiple rooms, generally intended for longer stays.

There is considerable variation and many frills within these basic types, the rule of thumb being that the more you pay, the larger your room becomes. Some business oriented hotels offer an executive level, where a steep premium gets you access into an airline style lounge and typically some perks like “free” Internet access.

Naming for these rooms varies, but you need to upgrade one more step to an “Executive Suite” if you want to actually get the executive level perks. Some hotels are now taking an active stance on being smoke free.

Hotels may additionally offer meal service included in the price.


Common terms for meals include:

Bed and breakfast (B&B). The morning meal is included. This may range considerably from a simple roll and coffee to an elaborate spread.

Half board. A hotel rate that includes breakfast and one additional meal, typically dinner. Also called Modified American Plan and demi-pension.

Full board. A hotel rate in which three meals a day are included in the price.

All inclusive. All meals and drinks are included. The list of “free” drinks is usually limited. In Uganda it is mostly soda or a bottle of mineral water.

Hotels may also charge a mandatory fee in addition to the standard room and board charge to provide access to additional facilities. This is typically called a Resort Fee and can include access to things such as exercise facilities, pools, and high-speed internet access.

Self catering

Self catering accommodation is the provision of living accommodation for fixed term rental for holiday and business purposes. The normal letting term is one week; however shorter and longer periods may be arranged. Appointed self catering properties are awarded classification on a scale to one to five stars.
