  • Is the single room with shared bathroom has air condition? How's the weather in September? Thanks

    Yes, the single room advertised is air-conditioned which has it own individual control i.e. not central air conditioning. The weather in September starts getting warmer, wetter and hence, more humid. The gentle sea breeze usually takes care of that.
