“Good base”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Our AC-room was not really worth the money because the AC did not work properly. The room was large, löud bed, with bathroom,ok. WiFi was only working in the lounge. Good breakfast, beer available, friendly staff, organizes trips and bustickets. Quite centrally located.

Room Tip: AC was not worth the money.

The house is surprisingly a real house! Brigitte lives there with her sons, and you really feel home, with the house space, the always running playstation, the carpeting and the one big bathroom.
The rooms are clean, spacious and comfy. The wifi works perfectly in the rooms. The breakfast (included) is excellent. It's a bit expensive, but every decent place in Padang is - this one has the best value, to my mind. The location is great but come back by the same way you left, or you might get lost in the small streets around :D
If you need anything or any help, they'll be there for you and at any time (we can tell!).
It's easy to chat with Brigitte and have some personal contact. We especially want to thank her for her help and kindness.

Room Tip: All the rooms look fine. Just ask her for some restaurant recommendation ;)

Brigitte's House feels like coming home. It is cosy and clean and Brigitte is a wonderful person, as is her crew. We came to Padang without any good preperation and because the locals speak little English and there are few tourists in Padang it can be a hassle to arrange things. After a tip from an Australian surfer we found her place and she made our day. We wanted to stay one night only but we stayed three nights and we met some nice people also staying at Brigitte's. She arranged a nice boattrip to the islands for us with good people and she helped us with good contacts for the rest of our trip. A recommendation for anyone who visits Padang.

Felt at ease here.

Accomodation was open, spacious and in fine condition. Nice lounge, terrace, outside chill area. Friendly, knowledgefull staff.

I had a great time here.

Will try to think about negative experiences but what hasn't come will most likely not follow ;).
Bottom line: it's good. Come in with a smile, leave (them) with one!

Trm!

Absolutely lovely place to stay in Padang. Brigitte has two big houses and the rooms are spacious and clean. She cooks breakfast in the mornings. This kind of places are hard to find :) The atmosphere is relaxed and you will find interesting people living in the guest house.

Brigitte is so helpful and easy going person. Thanks for the good time we had in Padang at Brigitte's!

Brigitte House was a place that felt like home. Brigitte (the owner) is a very warm and helpful person, willing to help out with travel plans or share information about the Indonesian and Sumatra culture. The breakfast was amazing and the rooms + beds were very good value for money. We booked for only one night but ended up staying 3 nights. Brigitte has very good connections with local tour operators and it is easy to arrange trips for a fair price. Highly recommend to stay here if you are in Padang area!

Hotel staff is really friendly and very helpful when you need to plan your daily trips around the area. Booked initially for only one night but ended up staying three nights with some friends as we really enjoyed the hospitality of the house and the relaxed/familiar atmosphere of the place. Highly recommend it in case you are planning to visit the Padang area.
