Here are some of the most common phrases that Spanish speakers use when asking for a hotel room:

  • Me gustaría reservar una habitación – I would like to book a room
  • ¿Tendrás una habitación disponible? – Do you have a room available?
  • Quisiera una habitación, por favor – I would like a room, please

When asking for a hotel room, you may find people that speak English to help you. However, if this isn’t the case or you just want to practice your Spanish in a real situation, in this article, you’ll find different phrases that we’ll help you make a reservation or ask for a room in Spanish.

On top of this, we’ll also provide examples of how to apply these expressions as well as some vocabulary that you may need to use. By the end of this, you’ll have a better idea of how to ask for a room in Spanish. 

How to Ask for a Hotel Room in Spanish?

Although there are different ways to ask for a room in Spanish, these are some of the most common phrases that you can use:

Me gustaría hacer una reservación 
I would like to make a reservation

¿Tendrás una habitación disponible? 
Do you have a room available?

Quisiera una habitación, por favor 
I would like a room, please

These three phrases have the same purpose: to ask for a room. But they differ because of their formality and intention. So with expression #1 (me gustaría reservar una habitación) you are asking for your room ahead of time while with #2 and #3 you need the room at this moment.

Describing the Features your Hotel Room Needs in Spanish

The previous phrases are very common when asking for a hotel room in Spanish; however, since they don’t provide further information about what you want, the receptionist may ask you more questions. In order to maintain control of your Spanish conversation, you can customize these phrases to give information ahead of time. Here is how you do it:

Expressing the number of people 

When booking or asking for a room, you may need to mention how many people are going to stay there. To do this, you can simply follow the next phrase structure. Notice that the field [expression] would be replaced with one of the phrases we mentioned before: 

[Expression] + para + [number of people]

Qué tal, quisiera una habitación para tres personas
Hello, I would like a room for three people

Disculpe, ¿tendrá una habitación para cuatro personas?
Excuse me, do you have a room for four people?

Buenos días, me gustaría reservar una habitación para dos personas
Good morning, I would like to book a room for two people

Take Note: The phrase ¿tendrá una habitación …? is a polite and casual way to ask if there are any rooms available. Additionally, notice that if you want to be more polite, you can add a greeting to the beginning of your sentence.

What Type of Room Do you Need? 

Instead of mentioning the number of people that are going to stay in your room, you can also talk about the type of room that you need. In order to do this, use the following phrase structure. 

Types of rooms in Spanish

  • Individual – Single room 
  • Doble – Double room 
  • Matrimonial – Matrimonial room
  • Triple –  Room for 3 people
  • Doble con dos camas – Twin room

[Expression] + [nombre of rooms] +  [type of room]

Buenas tardes, me gustaría reservar una habitación doble
Good afternoon, I would like to book a double room

Señorita, quisiera una habitación doble con dos camas, por favor
Miss, I would like a twin room, please

¿Tendrá disponibles dos habitaciones individuales
Would you have two single rooms available? 

Asking for Extra Services or Amenities

Additionally, you can also use the phrases that we’ve learned so far to mention any other amenities or services that you’re looking to have in your hotel room. Here is how you do it:

[Expression] + con + [service/characteristics]

Quisiera una habitación con vistas a la playa, por favor
I would like a room with views of the beach, please

¿Tendrá disponible una habitación con aire acondicionado y acceso a Internet?
Do you have a room with air conditioning and internet access available?

Take note: If you’d like, you can combine the information that you have learned so far in one sentence. 

[Expression] + [type of room] + con + [service/characteristics]

Me gustaría reservar una habitación individual con jacuzzi, por favor
I would like to book a single room with a hot tube, please

Making a reservation: talking about dates 

If you’re making a reservation ahead of time, you will need to share when you want to book your room. Here is how you do it:

[Expression] + para + [date]

¿Tendrá habitaciones disponibles para el próximo fin de semana?
Do you have rooms available for next weekend?

Me gustaría hacer una reservación para el lunes 27 de septiembre
I would like to make a reservation for Monday, September 27

Quisiera dos habitaciones individuales para el 13 de octubre, por favor
I would like two single rooms for October 13, please

Whether you’re making a reservation in the future or asking for a room immediately, most of the time the employees will need to know how long you’re staying. In this situation, it’s very likely that they will ask you questions like:

  • ¿Para cuándo es su reservación? – When is the reservation for?
  • ¿Por cuánto tiempo nos acompaña? –  How long will you be staying with us?
  • ¿Para cuánto tiempo?  – For how long?

In this case, you can simply answer: 

(Verb conjugated) + Del + [arrival date] + al + [check-out date]

Del 25 de octubre al 02 de noviembre, por favor
From October 25 to 02 November, please

(Verb conjugated) + De + [arrival day] + a + [check-out day]

Sería de lunes a domingo, por favor
It will be from Monday to Friday, please

Asking for Rates & Services

In the case that you wanted to know if a particular service is included in the price, you can follow this structure:
