      The reservation is for a mixed room. I really live with my sister. I am Chinese and ca n’t accept it, but the foreigner sister is not embarrassed at all. There was actually a party flag hanging in the room, which I couldn't figure out.

      Excellent

      No elevator. . Climbing the fourth floor with luggage was tiring. . But here is convenient. . There are coles and supermarkets nearby, as well as various restaurants.

        Location is good, but there is no elevator even if there is a room up to the 4th floor, so it is very difficult if there is large luggage. Everything was small, with stairs. The rooms are neither good nor bad. There weren't many toilet showers, but they could be used without waiting. And the kitchen was small, so it was always full of people.
