au premier étage

Hi there,

I'm writing an email to the accomodation staff of my university, replying to a room offer.

I would like to ask if there is more noise at? in? the first floor than at? in? the others, but I don't know what is the preposition to use.

My sentence is : I heard that some students complained that there is sometimes more noise at/in the first floor than in the others (...).

Btw can I say "noisier" ? Or should a say more noisy ?

Thanks for your help !

    In this case, you should say "on the first floor".

    "Noisier" and "more noisy" are both acceptable. Or, you could avoid that issue altogether and use "louder".

    Hi B.P.O.

    It should be "on" the first floor.

    And "noisier" is more correct to my mind than "more noisy".

    Hope that helps.
