No space for +s The food options lacked variety and flexibility. Many food items were listed but in fact only one is served per day, and only at specific times which must be reserved in advance. An improvement would be to accept restaurant-style orders on request. The laundry facilities were below expectations in that the washing machine seems to take half a day to do what ought to take only an hour at most, and there is no dryer. My clothes took many more hours to dry in the drying room.
