, June 2013: We had a nice and comfortable stay at this guesthouse. A quiet room at the back of the house with garden view. Small, but everything you need was there. Very good beds, small but very clean bathroom. Water from the shower had too little pressure but was nice warm. Bus stop in front of the house, no more than 15 minutes into the city centre. What always is most important is service and friendlyness. And hat is what we certainly found here: Marylin is most friendly, breakfast was great, wel felt welcome.
