    I stayed in the guest house. The room was comfortable. There was a well equipped kitchen. The location is within easy walking distance of shops and cafes. The reception was friendly and helpful in advance and on the spot.

    Good day. I would like to know if the place is safe for a lady travelling alone. Also would like to know if the en-suite room has air conditioner and it's own private bathroom and toilet, the en-suite double bed to be precise. As well as wifi internet. Your response will be highly appreciated. Thank you. Peejay
