We spent four nights at the Banana Boutique Hotel between Christmas and New Year. On arrival, we were charmed by the restored heritage building, and the very conveniently located bar/restaurant at the front. The rooms were fairly basic, but clean and comfortable, and fresh water and a newspaper were delivered each day (though it took us a couple of days to realise we needed to leave out a sign if we wanted the rooms cleaned).
The staff were friendly and tried their best to be helpful (though weren't always able to call a taxi), and the bar was pleasant enough. Breakfast was a bit disappointing - despite being shown a breakfast menu on arrival, we were presented with a queue for a rather depleted buffet.
The main attraction of this hotel is its location - it's an easy walk from all the sights, bars and restaurants of Georgetown, and on a main enough road to make getting a taxi or bus anywhere else fairly straightforward.
Would definitely recommend as a fairly budget option - good for friends wanting to make use of the large communal areas.
