Default How strict are the hotels in Europe?

Thinking of going to Amsterdam and Lucerne this summer with some friends. Does anyone know how strict the hotels in Europe are regarding the number of occupants? We have four, possibly five, people and planning to book just one room designated for two people. I've had no problem sneaking people into a hotel room in the US, Asia and Australia but I've heard that European hotels are kind of strict about it.

Anyone knowledgeable about this?

I've heard that some use sensors in the doorway/stairs to see how many people enter, and bill you accordingly. But that's purely speculation.

Many hotels in Amsterdam cater to groups of bro's coming to the city, so a piece of shit room housing 4 people is really not going to cost that much more than a piece of shit room for 2.

Why don't you guys just stay at a hostel if you can't afford to stay in a hotel? Most hostels in western and central Europe are good or very good.

Dress a few of your mates up as Eastern European hookers and just walk them in. I'm sure noone will mind.

very strict..some hotels have even special sniffing dogs to determine the amount of occupants. Revealed cheaters might even get attacked by dogs just to give a lesson that it is not OK to lie and cheat!

Cramming a bunch of dudes in a room kind of negates the benefits of a 4 star hotel.

In a 4+ star hotel? I'd say you have more or less a 2% chance to do that unnoticed.

This, for sure.

And as some others have mentioned, hostels in Europe tend to be really good so skip that 4 star hotel..
