Thank you for your feedback Anonymous. We are confused about how you thought that you had booked a room with 1 Queen bed and 1 twin bed. The room is a twin room and is sold as 1 Queen bed and 1 single bed. We were so perplexed, that we have gone through all the online settings that the online agents provide to us to choose from, and we are configured as 1 x queen bed, and 1 x single bed for our Executive Studio's and nowhere are we able to find any mention of 1 Queen and 1 twin bed. Please note the description from the SleepFoundation.org regarding Twin and Single: "Single and twin are two terms for the same bed size. There is no difference between the two, and both terms are often used interchangeably. “Single” used to be the more popular terminology, but today, “twin” is more commonly used." this would indicate that there is no difference, and that it is possible that the agent booking that you used to purchase the room, used the reference twin instead of single for your reservation. We unfortunately have no control over that. Some of the room types of the type that you have booked, either have single or else king single beds.
