    You should be able to book the train trip online and print the tickets. You can also buy the tickets at the train station too.

    No there’s only a ceiling fan but you can leave the window open. There is a bolt stop to prevent the window opening further. You’ll love the hotel. Breakfast is definitely worth trying.
