We had a pleasant stay at Asante Sana Guest Quarters on 3/27/13. The rooms were very clean. The entire house is decorated beautifully and has a warm, inviting feel to it. There are no keys, just an access code which we thought was easy and very convenient. There is no owner to greet you but we didn't mind that. We only saw one other person.
We stayed in the Prizery room which is on the garden level. The main downside was that you can hear EVERY person walking above you. It was quite loud. If we stay here again, I would recommend one of the suites on the second floor. Also, the double bed room on the second floor, has a bathroom on the first floor. You have to go through the kitchen to use this bathroom. The website does not explain this well and we originally booked this room but changed rooms when I found this out.
One big thing to keep in mind is the neighborhood is a bit sketchy. I wouldn't recommend walking around there at night. We took cabs everywhere and with that added to the price of the hotel room we might have paid the same amount for a more convenient location. Also there are only two parking spots in the back. If they are filled you have to park on the street which is nearly impossible from what we heard from another guest.
Also the owner overcharged us for our room and never bothered to credit our credit card, even after emailing her several times. That was a bit unprofessional but overall we had a pleasant stay.
