I stayed in a room on the 6th floor for 2 nights. On the first night I arrived after dark and turned on the light, the switch by the door only operates a small spot above the door, there are no other ceiling lights in the room so the rest of the room was in darkness and I had to fumble around on the power cables of the bedside lamps to light the room. The room had neither a clock nor a radio and as all the labels were worn off the TV remote I couldn't work out if it was possible to get radio that way either. The walls of the rooms were so thin that I could have joined in the conversations happening in the next room. At 5am on the 1st night I was woken suddenly by a loud noise coming from somewhere on the roof, it sounded like an extractor of some sort and it didn't stop for almost half an hour. This didn't happen on the second night and the room was generally clean (with the exception of the carpet) and the bed was comfortable. The catering at the event I was attending was good but could have benefited from some salad or fruit as it was weighted very heavily towards deep fried stuff.
