What should we be ready? There is no mini-barai satellite TV. Old spiral stairway leads into the hallway, where a massive door was closed and bolted, and the food slipped under the door. The bars are now locked to avoid absurd jokes from the neighboring “chambers-rooms”. The doors are equipped with electronic locks, and gate valve at the bottom of the door for feeding systems – closed, because the hotel has a canteen. And yet, once in the room, you probably will not desire to close the door.
