The architecture of the building was beautiful, and the atmosphere very homey and welcoming. It has a nostalgic feel to it, and the overall experience was very comfortable. The host was also nice and made us feel at home.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Never book again!!
1. Remote location. Very difficult to access the house. 2. Room is very dirty. Spider webs stick on every comers. There are always insects inside the room. 3. Moldy sink which I don't even want to get close to it. 4. The room is very tiny. 5. The unbelievable thing is I paid for 4 guests, but two of us were asked to sleep in the attic of the room which is not a proper and suitable place for sleeping. 6. I am frequent traveller, this is the worst stay I have ever been!
