The living room has a brand new leather sofa that unfolds into a full bed with a comfortable mattress ( BeautyRest) for additional sleeping spots, an armchair and an antique cabinet containing a TV. The bedroom has a queen bed with a brand new memory foam queen mattress, bedside tables, a closet and a dresser. The bathroom is compact with a toilet, a shower, a sink and a washer and dryer.
