    Lovely spotlessly clean rooms. On quiet street but minutes away from where the action is. Sergio very helpful and sociable.

    We would absolutely stay here again

    Nice bright and comfortable room with everything you could need (hair dryer, fridge, kettle with assortment of teas and coffees, good WiFi connection). Sergio was excellent at keeping us informed and organised a taxi from the airport for us as well. The added bonus of seeing the Optics Museum and spending time reminiscing whilst browsing. The area has plenty of places to eat and drink nearby and it is a short walk down to the waterfront which goes past a nice little park. The only downside was the 4 flights of stairs which we did know about but hadn't really considered after the amount of walking that we did in the daytime! Definitely not Sergios fault but something to be considered if you are walking up and down hills all day long.

    Great location right in the middle of town and Sergio was really helpful with suggestions of where to eat and things to do. Had a front room that was a little noisy if a car went by at night - only happened a few times and we were offered a change of room if it bothered us - but otherwise really comfortable and clean accommodation. And a camera museum built in! Highly recommended.

    Voksent par på ferietur.

    God opplevelse. Meget hjelpsom og trivelig vert. Koselig renovert gammelt hus. Eneste minus er sengene. Disse kunne hatt bedre kvalitet.

    Adorei a minha estadia. Adorei tudo. Quarto, a localização. Só acho que devirua haver uma tomada na casa de banho para ligar o secador e aqueles produtos de higiene pequenos.

    Good location, great host!

    The location of Museum House is great, everything is at walking distance. There are also many restaurants, supermarkets and other shops nearby. Sergio is a fantastic host who will do everything to make your stay perfect. The room was neat and comfortable and it had a nice, luxurious shower. The only thing to keep in mind is the fact that it’s an old buidling, which means the doors and windows aren’t sound proof (you can hear other guests come down the stairs etc). There’s also no elevator, but for us that wasn’t a big problem. Sergio can help you book tours around the island for no additional cost, which we liked very much. You also get free entrance to his optical museum, which is great. All in all we recommend staying here!

    zentral, sauber, modern eingerichtet, wenn auch keine Suite von der Größe her, aber sehr ausreichend für einige Tage. Jederzeit wieder! Mein Tipp: Zimmer Nr. 6 im obersten Stock mit Blick über die Dächer hin zum mehr und Blick nach hinten hoch zur Oberstadt!
