This guest house is in a perfect location. It is relatively quiet, away from the bustling, crowded shopping streets. We loved our very beautiful, comfortable room, while also recognizing that it is an old house and it has some funky things about it. Our room was 205 and the wi-fi did not work well. We are a couple and the bathroom is not extremely private in that it has a glass door that does not seal/latch. Again, though, we did love our room and would ask for it again. Also, many thanks to the young man who worked the front desk. He did not speak English; we do not speak Chinese, yet he took the time and would use a translation app to ask questions. He was very careful and detailed in his work and we appreciate his calm, professional, helpful demeanor.
The place is easy to find and close to all kinds of stores (from fruit food stalls to restaurants) and numerous landmarks. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the room (Celadon room) pretty charming. The house has a small and nice garden at its entrance, overlooking the street so away from immediate pedestrian traffic, with tables and seats where to enjoy a drink or fresh fruits. The Celadon room (queen size bed), located on the 2nd floor, was to be accessed from a loggia offering a very nice view on the surrounding houses and roofs and on one of the main churches of the island right across the street (church in renovation at the time (New Year's Eve), but hopefully soon to be completed).
Main point: no doors between the bedroom and the bathroom. There apparently used to be a curtain there, but that was not present anymore. A cheap fixture anyway. A nice wooden sliding door would be easy to install, classy, aesthetic, and much appreciated. As well, some details could be improved (chipped moulding in the bathroom and on the fireplace) and the overall cleanliness improved (when reaching for a fallen item under the bed, dragging back lots of dust with it was not the best experience). But this is being a little picky, bed sheets were all good as were the bathroom linen, perfectly clean and soft. Plus, this is a historical old house; it cannot be as perfect as a newly built ones. Overall an excellent price/value ratio.
