English term or phrase: twin room
It's not a "Doppelzimmer" (double room). What's the German word?

German translation:Zweierzimmer / Doppelzimmer (zwei Betten)
Explanation:
I don't see why you shouldn't be able to use Doppelzimmer, the word alone does not imply that it contains only one double bed. However, if you want to be completely safe, you could use Zweierzimmer or, as was suggested, Zweibettzimmer.

Hallo!
Danke für Deine Hilfe! Es tut mir leid, wenn ich Dir ungerechteweise zu wenig Punkte gebe - aber ich habe immer noch ein wenig Zweifel... Kann nicht "twin rooms" zwei Zimmer mit einem Bad bedeuten (so etwas habe ich auch schon mal in Hotels erlebt)? Wenn Du willst, schreib mir bitte an:
Hurkova@aol.com. Nochmals vielen Dank!
