What can be taken away from the hotel

If a person travels often, then most likely he also often stays in various hotels. And often, at the sight of all kinds of colorful bottles, boxes, towels and slippers, many tourists have an indomitable desire to take something from this good as a souvenir. At the same time, if there are things that you can take with you without any problems as a souvenir, then there are also such items that you cannot take in any case - for such "appropriation" you may face serious punishment.

So, what can and cannot be taken with you from the hotels?

First of all, it should be borne in mind that in different countries of the world and the rules of conduct in hotels are different. Accordingly, it is rather difficult to give general recommendations here. However, there is still one unwritten rule that is typical for most hotels - it is conventionally called "Rule S". What does it consist in?

Items starting with the letter "S" can be taken with you from the hotel. In particular, these are:

  • Shampoo
  • Soap
  • Slippers
  • Shoe shine kits
  • Shower gel
  • Shower cap
  • Sewing kit (kit for repairing clothes – thread, needle)

[ ! ] It is strictly forbidden to take other items. And remember well: if you take them when you check out of the hotel, it will be regarded as theft.

You cannot take with you:

  • Towels
  • Bathrobes
  • Pillowcases
  • Sheets
  • Pillows
  • Glasses
  • Cups
  • Ashtrays
  • Table lamps
  • Bathroom rugs
  • Telephone directories
  • Chairs
  • Paintings
  • And other similar items, as well as interior details

But it is worth noting that many hotels, knowing the preferences of their guests, often publish prices for these things. In this case, most of the listed items can simply be bought. After all, you will not regret a few dollars for a towel with the hotel logo, which you will have as a long memory?
