Can I use a 3x6 tumbled travertine tile as flooring in a bathroom?

Providing the structure and subfloor is suitable - Yes.

I hope it is a low traffic bathroom. Thats a lot of grout and texture for dirt to collect in. Use a quality sealer too.

Also seal twice a year as most manufactures suggest if it is under heavy traffic. If you like travertine, I suggest the honed and filled at least for the floor and honestly, for the entire shower. Walls that won't be touched could be the unfilled variety.
