The Avalon guesthouse is a very pleasant B&B with all the necessary amenities. It is very conveniently located - close to a number of consulates and near enought to the CBD, but still has a very peaceful ambiance.

excellent location, close to embassies, especially Russian embassy. Accommodation is very good, very homely and the furniture is made by the owners themselves. Rooms are huge, heaters work very well in winter

I have now stayed at this guest house twice and I want to confirm that it is an overall good stay. The rooms are very neat and very homely with all the woodwork meticulously done by the landlord. They have all the amenities and the breakfast have been my personal favorite every morning. Surely a recommended stay.

I stayed here for just one night in transit. The guesthouse is very nice and surrounded by peaceful gardens. I had a room with a little kitchenette and a small patio outside. It was very clean and well maintained. I enjoyed the fact that the decor is very turn of the 20th century with solid wood furniture and a number...

We stayed there a few times. Good rooms in different sizes. Our room had a nice garden. We brought our dog who also liked the place. The room was very nicely furnished and the staff very friendly. The WiFi system was not very good but there are plenty of cafes around with good free WiFi

I spent a week at this guest house in July 2014 and must admit that I was impressed with the premises and the quality of services offered. Avakon guesthouse is located in a nice and quiet part of city called Brooklyn and it is perfectly safe and nice for walking/jogging. A nice shopping mall named Brooklin Mall is only 20...

This guest house is a home away from home. Lovely gardens and the birdlife is great. Breakfast is served in the room, so it allows the business traveller an extra bit of time in the mornings. The owners are really great hosts and know how to welcome their guests. All rooms are provided with fresh milk and enough tea and...
