What Are The Spaces Required In A Guest House?
Topic : Guest House
A guest house (also guesthouse) is a kind of lodging. In some parts of the world a guest house is similar to a hostel, bed and breakfast, or inn where in other parts of the world (such as for example the Caribbean), guest houses are a type of inexpensive hotel-like lodging. In still others, it is a private home which has been converted for the exclusive use of guest accommodation. The owner usually lives in an entirely separate area within the property and the guest house may serve as a form of lodging business. This type of accommodation presents some major benefits such as:
Healthy and home made food

Before we start with your live case studies, first of all do a complete literature study. Literature study consists of reading everything you can find on the subject. You can refer books in a library, use Google to look up research papers, check out Standard Code books and statutory laws or from technical journals.
A literature case study would give you a vague idea about your topic. There will be various questions arising in your mind after you are done with your literature case study.
Objective of literature review:
A literature review must do these things:
be organized around and related directly to the thesis or research question you are developing
synthesize results into a summary of what is and is not known
identify areas of controversy in the literature
formulate questions that need further research
(xi) Tie-up with nearby Hospital or Doctor-on-Call facility.
(xii) Safe- keeping facilities at the reception.
(xiii) Fire and emergency measures.
(xiv) RO treated/UV treated water/Branded bottled water to be made available for guests. Availability of 24 hours water. RO treated/UV treated water to be used for cooking
(xv) Facility for adequate parking space.
(xvi) Pest control of all front of the house, guest rooms, kitchen (where permitted), staff facilities and back areas to be done regularly.
(xvii) Registration with local authorities like Police, Municipality, Electricity, Water, Fire, State Tourism Department or Corporation.
(xviii) CCTV in public areas with data backup is mandatory.
Lobby reception area
A Dining Area
Common/Public and Attatched Bathrooms
Reception Station Location:
The reception station should be positioned within easy sight of the lobby entrance so guests and visitors know where they should go. If a return is added, place the return closest to the lobby entrance so your receptionist can exit toward the office. And, avoid, positioning guest seating in an area that the receptionists would not normally view when working.
Reception Station Clearance:
There should be a minimum of 4 feet (5 ft. preferred) clearance from the front of the reception desk to the nearest obstruction. This dimension allows for guest access to the reception counter-top while permitting others to pass behind.
Reception Chair Clearance:
In general, allow 3-4 feet in front of each chair. This dimension allows visitors to access and sit comfortably in a chair while allowing another guest to pass by.
Bedroom Unit Location:
The Bedroom units should be placed in a area such that proper privacy is maintained for the guests and there is least noise pollution around it.
dressing area in front of closet: 4 ft.
walking path: 2 ft. 6 in.
limited access: 2 ft.
*note: minimum size 9 ft. by 9 ft. = for one twin bed (10 ft. by 10 ft. preferred minimum)
Dining Space Location:
Dining area should be so located it should be easily accessible from the reception area as well as the bedrooms. Care should be taken that it is not located near anyplace with bad odor.
The parking lot is the first - and the last -part of a building complex to be viewed by the user. It is the gateway through which all customers, visitors, and employees pass. This first impression is very important to the overall feeling and atmosphere conveyed to the user
Rules have been developed for optimizing
parking area space. Among them are the
1. Use rectangular areas where possible.
2. Make the long sides of the parking areas
3. Design so that parking stalls are located
along the lot’s perimeter.
4. Use traffic lanes that serve two rows of
The most popular angles for parking stalls
are 60°, 45°, and 90° . The most common angle
for parking is the 60° angle because of the ease
of operation it provides. This angle permits
reasonable traffic lane widths and eases entry
and exit of the parking stall.
Public toilets are places where one is obliged to ease oneself in unfamiliar surroundings among the strangers of the same sex. Therefore, the fundamental principles of design of toilets include psychological studies and not just physical clearances and space requirement
Appliances should be placed in order of use to simplify the circulation and reduces the
distance travelled by the user. Using sensor-operated appliances should encourage
It is difficult and costly to insulate the toilets acoustically and this problem can be
resolved by planning isolation as much as possible.
