1. ## room/ bus numbers

How do you say room numbers in Britain? For 123 is it- one, twenty-three or one two three? What about buses? Thanks in advance.

Bus 30 = thirty
Bus 100 = one hundred
Bux X100 = x one hundred

In hotels, Room 123 would probably be Room one twenty-three, Room 223 = Room two twenty-three. Normally the first digit indicates which floor the room is on.

a) in a hotel:
Please, turn right and take the number 25 room.

b) waiting for a bus:
Please, how do I get to the Main Street Mall?
Take the number 10 bus!

Thanks

Usually we do not start a sentence with Please. In dialogue #1, the receptionist would more likely say, "Here is your key, Mr. Smith. You are in Room twenty five."

In dialogue #2, Excuse me, how do I ..."

Please, turn right and take the number 25 room.

What've I said? my mistake, I think it's a little bit heavy to be taken, the best choice would let it where it is and even better, take the key and have a nap. I made a mess with rooms and keys.

Am I right?

Thanks.

Not a mess, but a bit of a confusion

In this sentence, omit the comma - Please turn right - and "Take" is not a word that would be used in this situation - and you will find Room 25 on the left/right hand side - and your sentence is fine.
