It’s not impossible to make this work ~ Just open the shower door and you’ll have plenty of room for your elbows should you like to lean over the bathroom sink to wash your face, but you shall not sit on the toilet and close the bathroom door ~ Impossible. Oh, the shower drain is slow, so be prepared to stand in your bath water. Also, if you have things to do in your room during the day, say, sleep… because you’ve traveled 16 hours and haven’t had sleep in a couple of days, dress warmly, the heat shall be turned off all day, so you may awaken freezing. Speaking of sleep, the matress is akin to an Army Barracks, I imagine. A couple more suggestions for those who dare brave this weird little place: bring your own coffee ~ theirs tastes a lot like McDonald’s... bitter beyond repair. And bring a flashlight; you’ll need it to enter the front door of building after dark. Apparently, electricity is not included! Note: I paid $150 per night U.S.
