My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights. The twin room was basic but very clean. This is certainly a no frills place to stay - low quality towels, no toiletries in the bathroom etc. We had breakfast both mornings which again was ok, but nothing to shout about. You are not offered a menu at all, just asked by the owner what you would like - this proved to be a little tricky as his English was quite limited so it was a bit of a gamble as to what was presented to you! I had an omelette both mornings which was quite nice. One evening, we decided to have a Chicken salad before going out which was very good. There were 2 men who ran the place (not sure who was the actual owner). One was more pleasant than the other. The not so pleasant guy came across as being rather abrupt on occasions. The B&B is right next to the American Embassy so we felt quite safe when we arrived back late at night as there were always guards hanging around. We were, however, a little worried one night when we arrived back as we had trouble getting the key into the front door (it is locked after 10pm). Thankfully, the one guy was still in the building but just about to leave himself. He managed to sort the door out with difficulty but I dread to think what we would have had to have done if he hadn't been there. The location of the B&B was very good with lots of pubs and restaurants nearby and in walking distance to the Incheba Expo where we went to see Lord of the Dance. Would I stay here again? Probably not, as I like something a little more luxurious. However, if you just want somewhere to lay your head, then it serves the purpose.
