눉beds not comfy not warm blankets

눉Fob system was complex, color-coded but NOT labeled (red fob is room A, etc.) The fobs should have the correct letter on them for each private room, and staff should know which is which without having to write out post-it notes for their guests. Also, poor conductivity and takes a number of attempts to get the lobby door or room doors open. Bathroom poor design, with circular shower stall and curtain crowded beside toilet. Difficult to get in, especially for low-mobility seniors, hard to keep floor from getting wet. Two small, rough towels and two wrapped minisoaps - no other toiletries or facilities whatsoever. No bathroom floor towel/mat. Rooms are small (but to be fair, well-organized, with bed, desk, drawers, open closet, sturdy chair that rocks). Uncomfortable plastic covers on bed, non-fitted sheets so by the morning you may be sleeping on plastic. Ugh. For students who expect to bring comfortable bedding, protecting your mattresses makes sense. For guests, perhaps you could upgrade your sheets and your see-through prison blankets? Kitchenette - not so much as a toothpick provided. When one specifically rents a kitchen, one expects to be able to use it. If concerned about theft, do what every other place does and note that missing items will be charged to the credit card. Or have a few tupperware tubs with basic supplies available at the front desk (frying pan, four plates/knives/forks/spoons, four mugs/cups, one kettle) and specify that items must be returned clean (or a cleaning fee will be applied to the card). Even paper plates and plastic cutlery would have made a huge difference to our comfort. Or a way to boil water. Be aware that it's noisy as the other residents are students. You'll hear laughing, swearing, running, banging, etc. and smell pizza deliveries.
눇Good design and layout, central location. Four private rooms and a kitchenette. We had two seniors, one adult, one child - so we all had privacy, plus a common area. This concept, for a student residence, was well-begun but not carried through to ensure comfort for short-term guests. See the critique for more details.
