What is the first thing...

.... you do or look for when you get to a new hotel room? I always look out the window at the view then check what the bathroom is like.

Just curious :)

never really thought about it before but i always unpack the bar fridge contents so i dont accidently use anything and it gives me more room for my own stuff.

tillywilly- what do you do if the window is bigger than the flyscreen you carry around :)

In this order:

Toilet, balcony, wardrobe for number of hangers. Then shower, unpack, then out for the first Bintang (remember to dress first of course).

I actually think tillywilly has a great idea (the fly screen, not the cleaning). Can't see myself doing it, but still a great idea.

First thing I do is check where all the light switches are and then what temp the air con is set to (always too cold for me)

I always ask for same room - base myself in same hotel and move around keeping room. Love having a window open at night and no AC on

I also meant to say it was the AC filter that I clean you would be amazed how dirty they get.
