English term or phrase: Room Directory
i.e. the directory of hotel services found in hotel rooms.
Seems like a silly, easy term, but I can't actually think of how this would be called in German...
My ideas would be "Zimmerinformation", "Hotelinformationen", "Hotelinformationsverzeichnis", "Hotelauskunft" etc., but I am not sure if any of these would be the proper term actually used.
Anybody been to a hotel in a German-speaking country recently?

German translation:Gästeinformationen
Explanation:
I'm sitting in a hotel room as I'm writing this - but it's in San Franciso. I just checked the Guest Directory (it's in English only, somewhat unusual for the hotels here in the City). I seem to remember from my last stay at the Bremen Marriott in June of this year that the book was called Gästeinformationen.
I did a quick Google search on Gastinformationen / Gästeinformationen, and the latter yielded a lot more hits than the former.
Hope this helps a bit...

Explanation:
if if was purely for the rooms I would say 'Zimmerverzeichnis' but as it's to do with services I would go with your idea 'Hotelinformationsverzeichnis'

maybe somebody else has a better idea
