Guests should be respectful. Pets are not allowed. Smoking in the house is not allowed but guests who need to, can do so outside.

Upon arrival at the gate, please ring the bell and wait a few minutes. We appreciate all our guests sharing their expected arrival times so that we can always meet and welcome them in person.

Unfortunately we are not "Handicap Accessible" and offer no ground floor rooms, so please expect to climb one or two flights of stairs to get to your room.

Help us preserve the condition of our establishment by removing your shoes at the entrance. It helps preserve the polished floors and keeps the place cleaner for everyone to enjoy.

Our living room has a TV, DVD player and surround sound which you are welcome to use. Just remember your tastes may not be shared by other guests, so always use with respect for others. It's amazing how the absence of a TV and sound can contribute to conversation and intimacy.
Our guests can come in and go out at any hour. However, outside of reasonable hours, consideration for other guests by keeping noise to a minimum is appreciated.

We will enter your room to clean, make beds and empty bins each day, if your stay is longer than 3 days your linens will be changed every 3rd day unless you request otherwise, we do try to minimize laundry to reduce our impact on the environment. If you need anything please ask.

Velvet House is on its own septic system so be careful what you put down the toilet. The septic system is designed to handle toilet paper and does not handle any other products, please use waste bin provided.

We take pride in our breakfasts and they require extensive preparation every morning. Guests’ choice of breakfast is usually selected from our menu and served at 6:30am – 10:00am from Monday to Friday and 7:30am – 11:00am on Saturday and Sunday. However, if you need breakfast outside these times please ask and we will do our best to accommodate your needs. If you have dietary restrictions please let us know in advance the night before so that we can provide something appropriately tasty. We will do our very best to prepare something that you will enjoy. We also have a fridge in the kitchen that guests are welcome to use.

We encourage our guests to read and check out our magazines, CDs and DVDs. As a sign of mutual respect and appreciation, please return them to their original place.

Very nice, quiet and clean place, with a truly homely feeling. Vivienne was not around, but I was welcomed by her friend Musa. The staff, Mary and the guard, who were always around, took very good care of me, and made me feel at home instantly. The location is great if you need to be close to the airport. The comfortable bed, bathroom, breakfast, all is up to expectations. The neighborhood is safe and very nearby are a number of small shops.
