    When a person is making a reservation at a hotel, they could be asked if they'd prefer to stay in a twin or double-bedded room. What exactly is the difference between these two types of rooms?
    Thank you

    A twin has two single beds, a double has one double bed.

    Twin beds or a twin room means two single beds (ie for brother and sister) whereas a double room is one with a double bed in it, ie one large bed that a husband and wife would share.

    And I think the extra -ed on the end of bed is not normally used. In fact, you can often ask for a single, twin, or double room.
