Underwhelming experience & overpriced

Stay: 1 night 19 Nov 206. A BIG disconnect in the expectation created - from making a booking (based on online images) to actual/physical viewing of the guesthouse & room. The images are misleading with regards to room layout and size. Our room was defined as "Guesthouse Rooms En Suite Luxury" with an area size of 40sq. metres. This was certainly not the case - as the actual room was half that size. Most likely included here, is the big balcony area but nowhere was that communicated in the room description - very misleading and this guesthouse lacks in transparency to the customer. This room also was subject to a lot of noise - hearing everything taking place in the kitchen & breakfast area. The worst part of all is the revolting smell from the bathroom basin - which, to make it worse is not contained in the bathroom but located outside of the bathroom and right next to the bed. We had to place a whole lot of towels on top of the basin to contain the smell. Breakfast: Served from 7-9 - a bit rigid in being flexible to allow guests to sleep in. They accommodated to move it to 9:30. The only positive: The great omelette & coffee that we had for breakfast. On the whole - this guesthouse is very overpriced for the customer service & the condition of the property.

5/5 Excellent

Comfortable and secure with a great breakfast.

The hospitality was great. After a long trip it was especially nice to find a decanter of sherry in the room upon arrival. The room and common area was comfortable and well appointed. The breakfast was terrific with eggs cooked to order along with a nice selection of meats, fruits and cereals.

Pros: Hospitality, breakfast, comfort.

Location: Very convenient. An easy walk to nice restaurants and bars as well as the university and STIAS. There is on-site parking if you have a car.
