An inn is an establishment offering accommodation and collateral services to travellers. Although often a bit hard to find in the Archaic Period, inns are plentiful in the Classical Period and the Decadent Period. The basic services offered by inns are rooms for hire, meals, laundry and baths. Of course these are available other than to travellers. There are inns which also act as taverns. In the Classical and Decadent Periods the services provided by inns are also available from hetairons, but one wouldn’t normally hire a room at an hetairon to stay in.
