The rooms that we had were like a flatlet with two rooms two bathroom, with an area with fridge and microwave.rooms are fully equipped and beautifully decorated. Facilities to make some tea and coffee are available and fresh milk in the fridge. Delicious breakfast and a very helpful and friendly hostess. Will definitely recommend the guesthouse and stay there again

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The guesthouse is in a great neighbourhood with wide streets and I never wondered about safety.
