Overall our stay was very nice. Initially though we had to wait for an hour at the spot where Lola has asked to meet us. Our calls and messages for her went unanswered and that got us worried. But she finally called and apologised, sent her son to receive us. He helped us with our luggage and both of them were very warm once we reached their home. They showed us places on the map where we could eat/shop/travel etc. Lola's home had good breakfast and she made us feel at home. The house itself was very similar to what is shown in the pictures and the neighbourhood is also very centrally located so you can walk to most places easily.
The location was awesome and it was a comfortable place. Thanks for hosting us Lola! :)

Lola's house is very welcoming and her son Orlando was very helpful when we arrived, showing us where the main sights are. Lola provided a lovely breakfast each morning. The house is clean, big bathroom and comfy bed. Location is perfect for walking to all the main sights. We would definitely stay again and recommend!
