This guest house has always been well reviewed, and I share everything in regard to the quality of the accommodation, the welcome, the breakfasts, the owner, and it's many good points.
However, the most important part of an overnight stay, in any accommodation, is to have a good night's sleep, and this we did not have. it was warm on the day we arrived and I did notice that the windows were open in the room. The reason became apparent that evening. There is no airconditioning, so you need to keep the windows open - that lets the warm air out, but lets the outside noise in, and there was plenty of that. Considerable amount of traffic, with a taxi rank about 60 metres away, cars passing with loud bass music playing until the early hours, followed by passersby, mainly under the influence of alcohol, singing and shouting. There were even three women arguing loudly about which one of them had spent the taxi money, and how were they going to get home. There may well be some rooms at the back where this is not a problem, but if you are at the front, then certainly at weekends, you are bound to experience it
Everything else deserves praise, but, like I said, a good night's sleep is the most important.
