I interpreted the word "room" as meaning "room within the apartment" instead of "the apartment itself." The detective would recognize the proper resident, having been hired by him. Presumably, the detective would have met any other proper residents of the apartment as well. So when the detective saw a stranger inside the department, he knew right away that the stranger was an intruder, regardless of which room he's in. Maybe it should say, "pondering in the apartment..." and "Oops, I thought this was my apartment..." Or am I not understanding something?
