The hotel has a great location, close to station, city centre, local shops and restaurants. The room was clean and modern. The staff were very nice and helpful.

Lovely boutique hotel in a convenient location: downtown, next to the railway station and next to the shuttle to the Airport. I spent a night in December and I appreciated the subtle and delicate atmosphere of this newly opened hotel. I also enjoyed my coffee in the small but confortable lounge. Simple and helpful welcome. The best value for money.

It was close to the train station and within walkable distance to tourist attractions. Many of the neighbouring hotels are 3-stars where Villa Bougainville is 4-stars. The decoration is also very cute and unique. The coffee, tea, nuts, and chocolate in the lobby are delicious and free too.
