‘Mind the gap’: An alarming new trend in hotel beds


There is an alarming trend that is taking part of hotel beds in recent times. In some places, booking a double, queen or king sized bed results in the cheeky act of hotels just pushing two single beds together. That is bad enough enough, but sometimes these beds have wheels and you can imagine the result if you try to snuggle up too close in the middle. Beds that have a sort of gap between them are also considered to not be good for your back! While these beds can sometimes be found in America, the majority of these situations occur in Europe where they have one or two beds within a hotel room. The gaps that is caused by having two beds can be unexpected for travelers of any age.

Key Takeaways:

  • In Europe, many of the hotel rooms have large gaps between the beds and that is tradition.
  • It can be hard on the back if you are sleeping in beds with a massive gap.
  • Being comfortable while sleeping is paramount as your body is in that state for a very long period of time.
