    What is the equivalent to "una cama matrimonial" in American sizes? Would it be a full or a queen-size bed? Thanks.:)

    I suppose it could be either but the traditional translation is double or full bed.
    Queens are more standard now in this country. Let´s wait for a native opinion.

    I agree with the queen bed. Kings would be some extended version. A "cama matrimonial" is 1.5 mts. wide. That should give you a reference.

    Based on my extensive travel experience in Spain, "cama matrimonial" is most definitely a double or full size bed. It is not an American queen size bed. At least in Spain, it's not.

    She is right. "cama matrimonial" is a double bed, or full bed. It has nothing to do with the queen size.
