Classification by stars

Not in every country is a classification by the stars. In different countries there may be a difference in classification. Also for example, a new 3 star hotel may be better than an old 4-star.

The hotel is not a place to sleep, but a place for rest or for conferences. The hotel offers a conference hall, a swimming pool, etc.

If you only need to spend the night, it will be much cheaper to have a motel (motor-hotel) - cheap rooms without special amenities near the road.
In expensive Scandinavia, guests from Russia prefer to stay in inexpensive cottages.
This is a very simple house, which is more than enough for overnight.
