if you are looking for opulence and comfort, this is the place. I have to admit this is the best place I have ever stayed at such a budget price.

A luxurious home away from home. The rooms are very spacious and beautifully decorated. Breakfast - eaten family-style at one big table - is delicious and quickly prepared. Service is incredibly friendly and the owners and staff are always willing to go the extra mile. Free wifi is another plus!

All the staff were very friendly and went out of their way to accommodate our needs (e.g. early breakfast) - remembering our meal preferences for example. The well-equipped kitchenette in the room gave us the option of buying from the supermarket (10 minute walk around the corner) and making... More

The guesthouse is a short ride to the downtown center. Location is near the Presidency, which is good for running/walking. The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed with a small kitchen. The atmosphere is great, including an "on your honor" bar on a rooftop terrace. Breakfast is good, typically served at a large dining room table with all guests... More

The neighbourhood is peaceful and safe - yet not too far from anywhere. We always stay in room 1 - away from it all at the end of the upstairs corridoor... More
