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

Still looking for somewhere to live? :cool:

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

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
