    We booked this place based on reviews but were totally amazed by the quality of the room. It was immaculate and beautifully set out. I think it is the best hotel room we have ever been in. The host was very friendly.

    Stayed for the first time last month and will definitely be back. Great location so handy to cafes , bars , and restaurants. Rooms are reasonably large and spotlessly clean. Surprisingly quiet as well. Very welcoming staff, super friendly and helpful. Highly recommended
