Sleep[edit][add listing]

The sleep listings need a bit of work to bring them into our House Style. For example, I really don't think the a full list of all the S- and U-Bahns you can take to get there are neccessary (especially for the Hauptbahnhof). Just list the nearest station and whether it is an S or a U. Same goes for what types of credit card are accepted (as much as this is a rare thing in Germany). Any can feel free to plunge forward. -- Brendio 16:36, 19 Jan 2006 (EST)

Dude, I agree with you in principle, but please take a look at the page history-- there was waaaaaay too much info in almost every section. I edited it down as much as I could while trying to preserve at least some of the orginal contribution. I do disagree re: credit cards. If, as you say they are a rare thing in Germany than it does make sense to note what's accepted where (Americans, for example, often assume they can get by with little or no cash). Danke!

I disagree with credit cards being rarely accepted in Germany. You can see the list itself, 90% of the restaurant/hotels accept them. I would recommend to remove all these accepted credit cards list and instead only put a note for the hotel/restaurant which do not accept them. In addition, there are lots of ATMs in Germany where people can easily withdraw cash in case the place does not accept credit cards. sixzilly 06:22, 19 June 2006 (EDT)
I agree with sixzilly, it's very common in Germany to pay hotels etc with credit cards. The only exception are small amounts (below 40 Euro), where it's usual to pay cash. Compared to America, few Germans have a credit card but that's due to the high costs. I will write a comment on the Germany page. Jan 06:37, 19 June 2006 (EDT)
So, I deleted some entries on credit cards now. I also think the (too much) info on public transport should also be deleted. Anyone who disagree, please discuss here. sixzilly 15:56, 24 June 2006 (EDT)

Spa and Massage in Essen - edited out?[edit]

Please check the section in Cologne. It's quite common that people like to enjoy a spa or a massage while traveling and the practice located in Essen. I added it again. After all, people do not only spend time eating, drinking and spleeping. Unsigned edit as of 00:09, 25 June 2006 by

Hi, IMHO your comparison between Cologne and Essen doesn't work. In contrast to the other spa offers, the label "AYELLA Tantra & Wellness Massages" has clearly a sexual touch; as Wikitravel is directed to foreigners, this could be seen as inviting sex tourists. And that is not the aim of Wikitravel Wikitravel:Sex_tourism_policy. --Túrelio 10:47, 25 June 2006 (EDT)
Hi, I see a clear difference to prostitution! The website clearly states that there is not sex offered. However I can see that it's not the same as other massages. I think the general section is useful. 14:39, 25 June 2006 (EDT)
I don't know what you mean with "general section". I propose to leave the entry in the SPA section, but take out the words "Tantra & Wellness" or "Tantra & Wellness Massages". Thereby, that entry would be similar to the others. --Túrelio 16:02, 25 June 2006 (EDT)
