    Perfect place to stay when exploring São Tomé. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It is tucked away down a quiet lane right in the heart of São Tomé. Only negative is that the walls are quite thin between rooms. Highly recommended.

    Good location close to walking downtown very reasonably priced staff was very accommodating good value for money you should also know that Sao Tome is very safe but be careful walking around town because the town goes dark at night with little street lights and there are many holes in the sidewalks

    Excellent Value

    Nice, clean spot for rest. We had a slight issue accessing the property to check in after midnight, and would have appreciated more communication on added costs like breakfast and a third person since we reserved a room for three people. Otherwise, it was an excellent value. Having stayed at an older hotel in town for three times the cost, we were thrilled with this find!

    Feels like Home

    Apart from the great location and the good rates, Edner, Aurea and the team do a great job at helping travelers to Sao Tome & Principe find their way around. For me, this included helping me find a good deal on a rental car, recommending and even accompanying a group of us to a great local restaurant (5entidos) and helping me contact the airport when all the local STP flights were canceled. The atmosphere is friendly, familial and cosy.

    The best place you will find in São Tomé city

    This is a unique guesthouse, where the typical traveller seeking to explore São Tomé by himself will have a great staff looking forward to help you on getting the real local experience. I was also very happy to be offered the possibility to take a shower by the end of the day even when I had already checked out. I had a flight later that day back home so it was a very nice detail
