English term or phrase:across
'she put fresh sheets on the bed in the room across the hall from mine'
sorry for the triviality of this question but this is a very telling sentence in the text I work on as the picking-up of a guest room showes the attitude of a servant towards her mistress and I would like to understand it clearly.
Was the room on the opposite end of the hall (then the servant liked her mistress) or just opposite the mistress's bedroom, on the other side of the hall (then the servant was malicious and put her mistresss in a very uncomfortable situation )?
