I have been to the Flamingo many times since the beginning, I have seen the first owner followed by other owners, and now also experienced it with again new owners.
The Flamingo is still a nice place to spend some days and many things are still the same as at the beginning. The atmosphere is relaxed, it is quiet unlike other gay guest houses in the neighbourhood and the majority of guests are nice.
Tony is a great host, he is really nice and makes you feel comfortable. But overall I felt a slight decrease of service level, be it the turn down service not being offered anymore, be it some staff not really taking care and not asking if any help is needed. I had even sometimes the impression I would bother them too much when I asked some simple help or recommendation, sometimes they even didn't bother greeting me. Well this comment I made on one side because I compare to previous years, and I also have high expectations on service. For me this is the main reason to return (or not) to a place, when the servcie is great. Maybe it is also bcause previously the owner were always around, and this time I have never ever seen them - I highly recommend them to show up to make the guests feel taken care of also from their side.
The rooms are nice and spacious, especially the suites. However, the rooms as well as public areas are getting a bit tired, show the age - some broken lamps, some broken chairs, some rotten flowers. Not really an issue but I hope they will fix it otherwise it will get worse.
Overall still a nice and relaxing place, and compared to most of the gay guest houses this is definitely still one of the best options - hope the new owner will work on the details to keep the level high.
