Therefore, when booking a hotel room, an individual would be entering a legally binding contract to pay the hotel for the services used by the individual booking a room there. The hotel should also be strict about serving liquor in the minibar of the hotel room booked by a minor through his guardian or parents.
Do you have any other option to book a room?
If you were unable to find a room in a hotel being a minor, consider looking for Airbnb and youth hostels in the region. Most of them would allow a minor to book a room with a valid ID, a credit card, and adequate money to pay for securing the room.
