Walls dirty, pillows full of stains, little water coming out in bath and shower. Staff unfriendly and extremely noisy.
The owner and staff are friendly and helpful. Smoker friendly without bothering non smokers
Nothing. I would not recommend it, unless you don't have a choice.
Dirty rooms - carpets, blinds, linen, needs deep cleaning Located at noisy intersection and noisy reception area (particularly Room 1) Receptionist seemed completely out of it.
Breakfast was good, nice and clean room and perfect service by Johan and his team
small parking place in the back
The hospitality of the guest house and a warm caretaker which is the manager
Bed was abit rattled .only concern.
Convenience. Closeness to shopping area. Availability of transport to other parts of the city. Located in a secure area, breakfast was good. Charges are reasonable in comparison to other places.
Could not find anything perhaps because of the short period of time I stayed.
I like the rooms
Staff is very friendly Breakfast superb Accomodation is in a quite area suitable for relaxing
Delicious breakfast Very nice and comfortable room
Staff were very helpful, room was good.
No free wifi
The welcome was very friendly and hospitable. The breakfast was good. The location was OK for us, in the neigbourhood of higways. We cannot assess the location relative to the city center.
felt like staff were not wanting to help at all, The owners was extremely freindly though.
It's location and cosiness.
will use again
Excellent facilities, with a good stuff, Hot shower and clean room. The breakfast that was included was amazing.
There is not much to do around the hotel. There are some bus stops near by
very helpful and approachable team, home atmosphere,comfortable and excellent guidance, safe place to stay,strongly recommended.
i see positive in every one and learn from every country.
Its great. For that prize you wont get anything better. I recommend it and will stay again.
Well the staff always being on the passage and making noise needs to be worked on.
Stains on chairs in the bedroom
Very friendly staff, large rooms, green yard, peaceful neighborhood, many restaurants and a shopping mall within walking distance from the guest house.
The guesthouse felt like home.The decor was outstanding and very comfortable. The room was spacious and clean. The staff were welcoming and helpful.
The food was of a poor quality on both visits to the guesthouse. The sausages, savoury mince and bacon appeared to be old or maybe it was the poor quality. The croissonts were cold - a microwave in the dining area, would have been appreciated.
The personal care taken by Johan to make the time a special one for us.
That the time allocated to spend there was too short.
