i'm not sure what the issue was but, the bathroom light would take 10-15 minutes to turn on some days. The shower also had no hot water. I'm not sure if that was because I stayed in the room next door to the laundry room the day that you were fixing it or what. Overall it wasn't bad.

Wi-Fi was challenging at best. Laundry room, machines and view best ever of the 51 Countries I have been in, even highlighted it in my blog earthpersonally.com

Ich hätte mir gewünscht, dass mein Zimmer enen Ausblick von mehr als 1m bis zur nächsten Mauer gehabt hätte - uns dass kein Müll im Zwischenraum zwischen dem Fenster und eben dieser Mauer gelegen wäre.
