The location of this B&B is very convenient, close to shopping, easy access via transit. The room included a bag of chips and crackers and some soft drinks free of charge. The owner kindly allowed us to check in four hours early (but later made a very big deal of not charging us for it).
Unfortunately our experience was not very positive. The owner was not honest and misrepresented what was included in the fees and continuously tried to charge us for extras. He specifically told us that continental breakfast was included and later proceeded to charge us $20 per day. When we complained, he claimed that the property was worth $250 Euros and he had done us a favor by giving it to us at $100 euros (price listed in the booking.com where we booked it). At $100 the room was overpriced. The room did not have an internal lock for security and in general it was hard for us to relax. There were foul odors at times. During breakfasts he tried to sell us another bed and breakfast property he owned in Philippines. The room's actual view is of a back alley, the photos of water canals posted are from the residence of the owner. He deals only in cash. Make sure you get a receipt from him when you pay upfront.
