It should be. I reported it.

Why wouldn't "Excuse me, is there a bathroom here?" be accepted

"Is there a bathroom here?" in Chinese is "有洗手间这里吗?" or using the alternative way of asking "有没有洗手间这里?"

"Is there a bathroom here" implies you don't know if there is one. "Is the bathroom here" implies you know there is a bathroom somewhere around but you want to verify its location.

Restroom, not washroom. Keep the translations consistent.

Either way, they should accept both.

I don't usually rest in the wash/bathroom.

Although I don't rest in restrooms, I don't bathe in them either. In France one gets to the point and asks where the f ing toilet is located.

So what's the difference between 这里 and 这儿 ? Are they exactly the same?

From what I've read in this forum and other webs, it seems like a regional/dialect difference, but mean the same.

Why not, "Is the bathroom in here?

You need "excuse me".

You're right. I had excuse me in my answer. What I was asking about was whether it would be okay to add "in" before here.

I think given the 里, that would make sense.
