Shabbat candles in a bedroom


We have been learning about lighting Shabbat candles.

We have said that the main mitzvah is to illuminate the dining area. Nonetheless, one who is a guest in someone else's home or in a hotel may light in his own private room (subject to the fire safety rules of the hotel) and recite the blessing there, assuming that illumination is already being provided for the dining area.

(Aruch haShulchan Orach Chaim 263:4)

Have a great day,
