Property condition

I don't think the ad was clear that the bathroom was a shared bathroom. It is not a place for a busness tripper to stay for sure. Parking is also a little random and concerning as it is almost always full and you have to wait for someone to move. For travellers not doing business who want a 'youth hostel' type of experience, it's fine.

k for a different room

We had the room on a corner next to the entrance to the shared bathroom.we had to open the window for ventilation but that made every conversation audible.
