There is no room available. "free room" sometimes implies "cost free", I think. - Don-Linton, JUL 6, 2010
I would use "habitación disponible or desocupada" instead of "habitación libre" - Mokay, JUL 6, 2010

Para hospedar bien las Olimpíadas necesitan El Comité Olímpico a gastar millones de libras solo por las flores.

To host the Olympics decently the Olympic Committee have to spend millions of pounds just for the flowers.

Discúlpenme si el orden de las palabras es incorrecto. :/

See Heidi's comment - apparently hospedar can't be used here. Which verb would be correct here Heidi, or anybody else?

Many hotels around the world kindly put up their guests while some, it seems, simply do their best to put up with them, perhaps the secret is in finding a hotel that knows the difference tongue wink wink grin

= Muchos hoteles en todo el mundo hospedan sus huéspedes con gentileza, mientras que parece que algunos sólo hagan lo menos posible para soportarles, tal vez el secreto es encontrar uno que pueda distinguir la diferencía

corregid mi español, con gentileza, por favor tongue wink wink grin

Housewife, and 'All for free' or maybe 'All for nothing' Meli. It isn't something we would generally say in England but it is okay. In England it sounds a little formal for the family situation. Hope that makes sense! :) - galsally, JUL 7, 2010
Instead of all for free we would say, "I expect nothing in return". - Brynleigh, JUL 7, 2010
