From her side number I suggest she is an advert for mens Cologne perfume. Failing that, perhaps it's a film set. Malta? BY.

The Soviet Navy's Project 611, also known by their NATO reporting name of Zulu-class,

The design was influenced by the German Type XXI U-boat of the World War II era.

Your hotel is in Amsterdam opposite the NDSM wharf

I really expected to know which room Tom was in.  Deep sigh

It may have been said before -  but there is a staggering amount of knowledge spread among the Mayhem mob
