When I realised check-in time was 3.00pm, and I'd be arriving just before 10.00am, a room with shared bathroom didn't seem such a good idea. There were no single rooms with ensuite available hence the shared bathroom. But common sense tells me that being in a place for five hours before you can get to your room, the first thing you want to do will be to use the toilet and have a shower. What happens if others have the same idea? It's not like a hostel where there's a toilet/shower block. So I bit the bullet, or in this case my wallet and booked a double room with private bathroom. Fifty dollars for your own dunny is a lot of money, but let's face it, one shower and toilet per floor will be a real pain.
Double room with ensuite
There are a few different styles with either a street view or mountain view. I've asked for the mountain view, so hopefully I get one. And I won't have to worry that the toilet will be "engaged" - very important when you have to leave by 8.00am.
Of course I'd rather have the money in my pocket, but I've made the right decision.
