This hotel is located in a posh residential neighborhood. Several embassies, including US , are nearby. Many coffee bars and inexpensive restaurants too. It is not, mind you, near the main tourist activities.
It is made up of two conjoined town houses. Breakfast, which was terrific, is served on the lowest floor, in back, and half the breakfast area sits in a nice conservatory, behind which is a little garden where 2 dogs amiably lie. Several rooms occupy the other floors and there is a common parlor with a wired PC and wifi access on the level where one enters. The rooms have high ceilings, sumptuous furniture, and flat-panel TVs. There is no air-conditioning, which only matters a few days a year.
Staff was most accommodating. We arrived Sunday at 8 am, several hours before check-in due to flight times. But the staff let us use the parlor and even gave us a free breakfast while we waited for the room to be vacated and then cleaned.
As B&Bs go, this was pretty high-end. Arguably it could be equally well described as a boutique hotel.
There is an excellent bistro nearby, right across from the US embassy, called Roly"s Bistro.
