I had read the mixed reviews of this place prior to booking. But we were only staying for one night & the comments about it being unattended & the lack of breakfast didn't bother me so I booked.
Firstly the positives, the room we stayed in was gorgeous,the attention to detail in the decor was amazing, exactly like the pictures and we did enjoy our stay. The fridge was stocked with a selection of free drinks and snacks which was nice. The location was great with 2 minutes from the main shopping street.
So the negatives.....we had prepaid for our stay when we booked through booking.com but when we arrived we were told the payment had not actually been processed (I checked my account and the payment had not come out). This was slightly annoying as it was the last night of our holiday so funds were low and we obviously presumed the payment had been taken a month previously when we booked.
The owner is really nice and super friendly but her English is patchy to say the least. We told her we needed to check out at 8am as our flight was at 10am and she said no problem but the next day there was no one around & when we called her she said she wouldn't be there until 10am. So we ended up having to just leave the key for the room on the hook & go. It wasn't a big issue as she didn't mind us just leaving the key there but it is an unnecessary complication when you have a flight to catch!
Overall, I would still recommend this place. The room was gorgeous, the location was good and the price is reasonable for what you get. Just beware of the negatives.
