Bad news. While 888 will get you the teletext subtitles in Greece, Belgium and other countries, and Austria is 777, for example, Romania is one of the few EU members to have NONE for Teletext subtitling.

You can drink in your room or in a bar, basically anywhere alcohol is a available you can drink, no alcohol, no drink, that includes walking with a drink in public. The reason behind this is the public resistance to "westernizing" the country, so government is trying to make everyone happy as much as possible, people who drink can drink in designated ...

Things like towels, bathrobes and slippers are not there to be taken, they are to be left behind. Small toiletries like soap, shampoo, lotions, toothbrush are yours to keep if you so desire.

Booking Nights Hotels count the nights you spend rather than the days. A night is defined as the time period between hotel check-in and check-out times and, whilst this is often less than 24 hours, it will inevitably span over a calendar-night. Check-in Times In general each hotel decides its own check-in and check-out times. There is no unique rule. ...

As far as I know, all hotels provide a check-in and check-out time (i.e. the earliest time you can come in and the latest time you can come out).

While your question is very broad and cannot be answered with certainty (you should check the ...
