    Hello, regarding standard double room, do we get a key for the room? And does it have amenities like well-working A/C as written? Thanks in advance.

    Thank you for contacting us. Our building is of an older style without an elevator and all rooms are located on upper levels. I would suggest looking at Hostels in the city centre area for a more wheelchair accessible option.
