Often the fourth star depends on the location of the hotel or having a round-the-clock service, a special necessity in which there are no tourists. Well, of course, to be able to – or feel the opportunity – to order a tea in the room at night, or it is stronger, but with competent self-organization of the journey from these services-luxury – the Germans would say "Luxus" – You can refuse.
