          Which room is most popular, number 1 or 2 or 3? What are the differences between them? Is one more updated and renovated than the others? Does one of them have better wifi in the room? Is one quieter for noise than the other? Are they all on the same floor? Do they each have the same private balcony type? Thank you!!!
