Connecting Rooms and Adjoining Rooms… Are they the same?

Both connecting (also known as interconnecting rooms and communicating rooms), as well as adjoining rooms, are the kind of rooms that most (large) families prefer when booking a hotel.

These rooms are also popular among groups of friends traveling together who want to stay together. According to some hotels, though, it is important to know that adjoining rooms are not the same as connecting rooms

Adjoining rooms are usually located next to one another, and to access one room it’s necessary to leave the other.

Connecting rooms, on the other hand, are also next to each other but they are connected through a dedicated door that can be locked (and might share the bathroom), and there is no need to leave the room through the main door to access the second room.

When to Choose Adjoining Rooms

crete hotels with connecting rooms

Choosing hotel rooms that are situated close to each other is perfect for groups of friends traveling together, several couples traveling in the same party, or families with older kids (young adults).

Adjoining rooms can also be located across the hall from each other, and that, in no case, are connected to each other through a door. Adjoining rooms are close but separated (either by a corridor or a wall).

These rooms are ideal for groups of friends that want to stay close to each other

When to Choose Connecting Rooms

This picture shows a good example of connecting rooms (the door is open).

These rooms are located next to each other on the same floor of a hotel and share a connecting door (which can be closed and sometimes even locked), but you do not need to exit your room to enter the other interconnecting room

These rooms are a favorite by families as they give peace of mind to parents as well as a little privacy. A connecting room helps you make sure that your kids are sleeping (or playing) in their room without any risk.

Ok… now that you know the difference, let’s check out some of the best Crete hotels with connecting rooms preferred by families
