Stayed there on a weekend, and was overwhelmed both by the rooms (modern, tidy, tasteful) and by the people running this guest house. Locations is great, walking distance to the waterfront, and served by (cheap) taxis at night. Not sure if there is a fitness room, but there is a small pool for the adventurous (it was almost winter when...

The rooms were large and had all of the comforts of home. The rooms were designed well and I especially liked the large separate shower and soaking tub. Although it is a small hotel,...

This place is nothing short of amazing. Staff is incredibly friendly, they really make you feel welcome and at home. We arrived in the morning after an overnight flight, our rooms were ready and we were treated to a late breakfast that was freshly prepared and served as if we were friends.
