Great experience
It was a great experience. Only complaint is the outlet is on one side and above the bed. No place to put the iPhone charger unless no one is sleeping on the bed. Other than that minor inconvenience, its a great Guesthouse!

The hotel is in a busy section of the city, so parking is a little hard. But it's very close to the botanic garden and the famous church. The receptionist helped us out getting a table at the restaurant owned by Apotek. The food was pretty good. We had a good breakfast at a nearby bakery a few buildings down the street.
