A house perfect located in the old town, very well furnished with a sense of staying in a beautiful home. We had perfect service from both of the two women we met during our three nights stay. The breakfast was nice and well served. We could not imagine a better place to stay in. The only thing to take in account is the lack of elevator.

A comfortable guest house in a fantastic location. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly: a real family atmosphere. One small warning: some of the rooms are upstairs and there is no lift. The breakfast was basic but entirely adequate.

one very attractive and well presented guesthouse that has everything one needs and more to make for a comfortable stay and made that bit more special by the family who run it and with the city center on your doorstep the location of this guesthouse is excellent. simple check-in in a reception area that oozes class,the rooms are very inviting with a smart and modern bathroom. front door is coded and will be given with a wealth of other advice from a family who i can not speak highly enough of and i am sure others will get the same experience i got if you stay at this guesthouse,a memorable one.

Absolutely fantastic and friendly staff (owner I think). Gave us a lot of information about the city. Good English. The room was excellent: pretty, beautiful, clean and also functional when it comes to travelling with a kid. Bed behind the corner and functional air conditioning. Would recommend highly!
