    possibility/opportunity

    In the airport where I had to spend 10 hours, I tried to inquire:

    " Is there any possibility to have some sleep here (in a bed and not just in an arm chair)?"

    Did I ask it correctly?

    Thanks.

    Re: possibility/opportunity

    Your phrasing is perfectly comprehensible. More typical English phrasing would be something like "Is it possible to get some sleep here, preferably in a bed?"
