Be aware they have 3 different locations and rooms are extremely different. Before giving your credit card make sure what room you are paying for. We had the standard room and it was the last part of the atic, with no height, most of the time you need to be bow down, if you are a guy there is no way you can pee on your feet. There are lots of narrow stairs to get to your room; no bed light (you have to walk to the door to turn the lights on/off), no closet and NO SHOWER (very nice tub but prepare for your free pilates lesson), and don't worry about your shoes, you have to leave them outside.
After you confirm they ask you to called them 2 hours before your arrival to tell you where your room is going to be (which of the 3 houses). We've e-mailed them aprox. 4 hours before and they didn't respond, we've pay an international call to know where to go. Unprofessional.
On their behalf, I'll say the bed is comfortable and our location was good.
