    Hello, I'm doing a translation of a text about hotels and well, the rooms services and the services the hotel offers. But I have a doubt about the word 'Ambiente' use to talk about certain rooms. This is the example:

    Detalles: Dos ambientes - Sala - Sofá cama - Tina - LCD en cada ambiente

    My question is: can I use environment or atmosphere.

    Thanks!

    Ambiente en general se refiere a cuarto. Un piso o apartamento de dos ambientes es uno de dos cuartos, no creo que cuadre usar la palabra "environment", sino más bien "room". Eso se desprende del "detalle" que estás aportando, creo que habla de un apartamento de dos ambientes, nada más.

    Estoy de acuerdo con ustedes dos.

    Why "type"? Ambiente=habitación=cuarto. As simple as that.

    Is that actually used in the UK?

    am·bi·ence (ambē əns, ämbē äns′)
    noun
    a particular setting or its distinctive atmosphere the festive ambience of a wedding reception.

    But not in the case we are considering on this thread.

    Like environment...

    I am still waiting for a native to answer about its usage.
