Basic accommodations, but the room was comfortable, quiet, and dark at night. The breakfast was excellent.
nicely maintained facilities and a good location walking distance to the bus terminal
The breakfast was good.
No dinner and not so many restaurants nearby.
Friendly, helpful owner, clean and pleasant guesthouse and I had interesting conversations with fellow guests.
Very pleasant, helpful staff. Very clean facility. Wonderful breakfasts.
A little noisy (busy road outside; sound of guests entering/leaving their rooms).
The Guest house is built to a boutique hotel standard.
The location is a bit far from centre of city.
The staff was super nice. The room was clean, but the most important thing, for me, was the clean showers and toilets, since they were common. [And they were always clean and available, and with a sense of privacy] the breakfast was really good, and it was pretty close to the center. Not in the heart of town, but in a walking distance, and also close to other sites and facilities, such as the bus terminal for the airport and for day trips]. The free internet access really helped a lot, although sometimes reception was not good. In short it was a really good deal. And I would definitely recommend it to anyone, and will probably come back again.
One thing I found somewhat disturbing is that I really didn't know how to contact the staff at some points of the day, especially at night. I had to leave really early in the morning, but couldn't find out how to check out. Just left the keys on the bed and left. Usually this would be a good thing, I guess. Because it gives you a sense of privacy and feeling that you are "at home". You don't feel their presence all the time, but you do know they are there. But thinking about emergencies, check outs and some unexpected things, I would have liked to know how and where to contact the staff.
Very good location, excellent breakfast, very nice room.
