The location is not too far from the city center, it takes only 10 minutes by bus. Very good service. Nice and clean room. I and my family really love the interior design and decoration of this guesthouse.

The guest house was incredibly reasonably priced for such a central location. Stayed here for a weekend with some friends, the staff were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms, while not of a modern decor, we're spacious and very clean. There was a great range of breakfasts to choose from. I would definitely visit again.

Value for money in the heart of New Town, very nice staff, great breakfast. I just booked this place without really knowing anything about it and I couldn´t have made a better choice! I highly recommend this place!

We had a room which was a bit tired, with the wash basin in the room.It was quiet and the beds were comfortable. Cooked breakfast was adequate, but not a lot of choice. eg no bacon on offer.... More
