I've known Ruth for a long time. She's not only friendly and easygoing but she has always been a valuable traveling companion. Once, we decided to go on a spur of the moment, unplanned trip to Barcelona. We had no reservations or plans other than that of taking a break and visiting the city. When we got there, she immediately took over finding a place to stay. I was doubtful that it would be possible to find accommodations in the center of town during a holiday period. However, she didn't let that put her off. She walked around the center with her travel bag and found a charming, very clean and inexpensive double room right near the Town Hall within a couple of hours after arrival. Our short holiday was truly great, mainly due to Ruth's intuition and organizational talents. Over the years, through traveling to different parts of the world, Ruth has stayed in many different lodgings and has come to understand not only the needs of travelers, but what makes a place attractive and comfortable.
I have been to her bnb in the historic center of the lovely town, Proceno. She has created a very charming, cozy and well equipped atmosphere where guests can totally relax after a day of touring the area. She knows the region and outlying areas well and is able to give very useful information to her guests. She is professional and, at the same time, willing to help newcomers acclimate to their new surroundings by making them feel at home.
I recommend Ruth, because I know other members will find their sojourn in her bnb more than satisfactory.
