I am travelling in a few days. Can I trust the water bottles that the hotel will provide me, or should I bring my own water just in case?

Pretty sure the bottled water at the hotel is likely to be normal bottled water.

I’m a bit confused by this. Can you go into why you think you wouldn’t be able to trust the hotel’s water bottles?

You don’t say where you’re travelling to but make sure the bottles are sealed. I’ve heard of bottled water being supplied but actually just being tap water added to bottles to place in hotel rooms.
Oh and if you’re really worried, don’t add ice to drinks as that could well be frozen tap water as well.

Depends on where you travel. Have never had a problem anywhere in Europe with tap water. If you’re fussy about the taste, hotel gym is a good bet for filtered water. I try to avoid buying bottled water.

This works well for my travels. I carry it empty though TSA then fill from a fountain afterward clearing inspection. Then fill with tap water at hotel or dump their bottled water into it.

EDIT Link below to show product but I think I paid 1/3 of that price. Maybe a discontinued item but I’m sure there are others like it under $25.

Also have the plastic bottle system for hiking and also use it on bike as it fits bottle holder. Longer days I use the inline system for hydration bladder pack. . I’m just a happy customer of theirs and can’t rate the technology highly enough. Proven effectiveness at eliminating waterborne diseases, such as cholera and typhoid, sediment and chemicals and compounds. Other pathogenic removal includes E –Coli Salmonella typhi (Typhoid) Cryptosporidium , Giardia and Anthrax.

Unless this is abroad you are fine. I’ve traveled for years in state, brining my bike and training all along. I’d buy a case of waters and just fill bottles off that.

Pre portion some drink mixes in baggies and you are good for days.

Sometimes impoverished nations refill their bottles from the tap…that defeats the purpose. Be certain that the bottle you bought is sealed. https://iwaterpurification.com/best-glass-water-bottle/

While bottled water is quite safe to drink, to be extra sure, you can carry Doulton portable filter bottle with you.
