beds=* would be better as capacity=* --Danstowell (talk) 09:32, 3 January 2014 (UTC) -- o.k., changed.--Nounours77 (talk) 15:24, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Why restrict to "flat"?

I really think this is awkward, creating a tag that combines the use (i.e. holiday) with aspects of the building (i.e. flat). Why not just a tourism=self_catering tag, and let the building=apartment tag tell us that it's in a flat? --Danstowell (talk) 09:32, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

FWIW, the proposal has been updated with answers to these concerns. I don't have a strong inclination to argue further on this one.--Danstowell (talk) 10:06, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Please finish sentence

"But I will suggest an additional key number, by which the" ... Thanks! Avena701 (talk) 08:29, 16 February 2014 (UTC) -- just a bit of an old sentence which I did not delete. Sorry for this. It's removed now. --Nounours77 (talk) 12:12, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Combine hut, wilderness_hut, alpine, etc, also combine or condense hotel, motel, guest_house

I agree this is a mess. All the huts should be combined somehow. As for hotel, etc., I add those tags based on the name of the place. If it says Guest House I use guest_house, if it says Hotel or Hostel, I use that term. Motel is trickier however because in my mind, a motel is separate building, usually 1 but sometimes 2 or more floors, containing individual rooms. It's different from a hotel because it has no lobby or common sitting space. Of course, my view comes from my experience as an older American. I can remember when motels were all the rage, a motor hotel. Times have changed. AlaskaDave (talk) 00:04, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

In my book Hotel, Resort, Guesthouse, Motel and Hostel are all different. A hotel is rather big with a proper reception and often have a restaurant. A resort is the biggest of hotels that includes it's own beach, shops, bars and restaurants. A guesthouse is a small and basic hotel often without a reception. A motel is a place were all rooms have their own door and you park right outside your door. A hostel is a place were you share a room and/or toilet with other guests. I am very much against combinding any of the mentioned tags.--RocketMan (talk) 14:37, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
