The first thing I read are the bad reviews; I figure they will be the most honest reviews. In this case, while they may be technically right, they are very unfair.
Having stayed for two nights recently with my 84 year old father, after a whirlwind trip round 15 countries, Marko and Serena and their guest house was not only the best stay by far, but as the last stay on our trip they rounded off our trip perfectly. It's true they are not a hotel but to my mind that is a bonus. It's true also the lift is old, but it worked perfectly well for us. And yes they weren't on the premises 24 hours a day, but that was no problem and they supplied a phone number for emergencies.
Nothing was too much trouble and they were genuine in their approach, a far cry from the 'service' at most places.
The price is very reasonable - make the comparisons - but if you want the anonymity of a hotel and enjoy being treated as just another person by someone who really doesn't give a damn as long as you tip, go elsewhere.
I'm a budget traveller who enjoys being spoiled, I'm no tycoon and I'm unimpressed by luxury. For me the service I experienced was the best I've had in all my years of travel - which has encompassed 55 countries and places from 5 star hotels to shacks with holes in the roof.
I'd recommend them without question; I'm only afraid that success will take them places I can no longer afford.
And I fell instantly in love with Tania, but that's another story.
Thank you Marko for a wonderful stay and your welcoming attitude and thank you Serena for all your advice and the parting gift. I will be back.
