    is this sentence ok?

    Hi,
    I wonder if the following sentence is OK: "Is the bathroom private?".
    Thanks a lot,
    JC

    Yes, the sentence is fine. You could also say "Is it a private bathroom?" OR "Is there an en-suite bathroom?" OR "is it a sole-use bathroom?".

    Hi,

    I have a few questions about the unit, please.
    Is it a private bathroom?

    Doesn't it sound as if I ask if the unit itself is a private bathroom?
    Thanks a lot,
    JC

    Re: is this sentence ok?

    Now you have put it into a context which does require a different phrasing:


    I have a few questions about the unit, please.
    Is it a private bathroom? Is the bathroom en suite/Is the bathroom sole use/Is the bathroom private to the unit
