    Re: viewing room

    In what context?

    It is where you go to see (to view) something. It could be a body in a coffin before burial, or many other things.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    It's hard to explain. I'm reading a tale where the mayor of a Renaissance city has a Palace in which there are many foyers, halls and rooms. At least in some of them, it seems there are opera performances and more. But the text doesn't say much of these rooms. It talks about performance halls and viewing rooms. As for the viewing rooms, could they be some rooms where people meet to discuss some questions? Does it help?

    Re: viewing room

    It sounds more to me like they go there to view the operas (perhaps without being seen themselves?)

    Re: viewing room

    As this seems to one of these pseudo-Mediaeval romps, I suspect the author means a room in which the Prince interviews people, a room in which he is viewed by the people.
