    Beautiful antique house with a very nice owner who takes time to talk to and help his guest. The rooms are spacious and clean and a great breakfast will set you up for the day. The location is convenient with Union buildings within walking distance.

    The resident owner/manager of the guest house was able to arrange transport for our group from the airport and also to special restaurants and sites around the city. He does this as a courtesy.
