Unless stated in the review, hotels usually have elevators, and all guest rooms have air-conditioning, TV, telephone, and a private bathroom. In France, the "first floor" is the floor above the ground floor (rez-de-chaussée). The number of rooms listed at the end of each review reflects those with private bathroom (which means they have a shower or a tub, but not necessarily both). Tubs don’t always have fixed curtains or showerheads; how the French rinse themselves with the handheld nozzle without flooding the entire bathroom remains a cultural mystery. Moderately priced places that expect guests to share toilets or bathrooms are almost extinct, but be sure you know what facilities you are getting when you book a budget hotel.
