4 people in a suite in Europe

Anyone have advice on how to do this?
Many hotels max out at 3 persons - even when there are two kids and a 60m2 (~650 sq ft) room.

Assuming refundable, book it and then contact the hotel to verify it's ok. At that size, with two children it's probably ok

A lot depends on the ages of the "kids."

A two-bedroom suite should be able to handle four people and would be likely to have one room with a king bed (and master bath) plus the second bedroom (maybe a lockoff) with two beds.

Details such as ages, cities, and specific properties and suite types would help.

Thank you all - small kids 6 & 9 years old.
It's a European thing - but we booked a room in the same hotel (2 Queen beds - euro double) - and that was fine.
A suite? not. Which is dumb.

A suite at 650 sq ft is fairly small, although there are certainly smaller suites. If the suite has one king bed, there might not be space for two rollaway beds....or there could simply be occupancy regulation or fire codes that forbid occupancy by more than X people above age Y. These are the rules.

Contact the hotel directly and ask, I'm sure they will do their best to accommodate you in the suite if there is a way to do so. Would suggest email so you have it in writing.

Then come back and report it to the wiki! 2 adults + 2 children policies by property

Call the property directly and ask. This is a common question and the property will be able to answer it on the spot. If the answer is "no" then ask what might be done to accommodate. Properties are a lot more flexible and creative than websites. Could be a small adjoining room which can sleep 2 kids and the manager lets it go for very little.

Limits are imposed by both policy and local law. The former may or may not be enforced, but the latter will be.

???

Europe is about 10 million sq km and has something like 750 million inhabitants over 50 sovereign states. Can you be a bit more specific? There are plenty of hotels that have two-bedroom suites. That should work for you. How to do it? Call the hotel or use their website.

It is probably worth mentioning that "Europe" is not a country, and that each country in Europe is an independent state with their own rules, regulations and laws. Therefore, what goes in one country may not go in another, and vice versa.

I appreciate geography can often be a challenge to many Americans, but would expect those frequenting this site to be somewhat better informed.

I remain perplexed that “Europe” is frequently used on this site in the same vein as “Florida” or “California”.

To the OP, if you can clarify countries, cities and what type of hotels, you will get far better advice.

If you want general answers then ask a general question, if you want specific answers ask a specific question.

So answer your general question, in a suite sometimes it is ok.

Is that good enough? If so then good if not pls be more specific as to which country(ies) you are hoping to visit.

In terms of the sarcasm, ignore it, their point is valid though.
