Very good. Although the front desk service was mediocre at the beginning, the experience was very good after changing a group of people. It is located in a safe and convenient area with convenient transportation and complete surrounding facilities, such as schools, hospitals, shopping malls, etc. Secondly, the room design of the housing should be reasonable, the room should be well ventilated, the lighting should be sufficient, and the hygienic conditions should be maintained in good condition. In addition, housing facilities should be complete, such as air conditioning, heating, water heaters, kitchen facilities, etc.
