Excellent heart-of-the-city boutique hotel

Jafferji House was a wonderful experience from start to finish. When they say they’ll get whatever you need to make your stay comfortable, they truly mean it. For example at breakfast I asked for sweetener (explaining I’m diabetic) by the evening someone went to the market and bought some. The rooms are huge and beautiful — each one unique. Beds are firm and comfortable. The restaurant is lovely with a fantastic view. This is a five star experience. Things to note: there are no fridges in the rooms, however they will keep anything in the reception. My room didn’t have a telephone but WiFi is readily available everywhere and very good. There’s no lift. I stayed on the 2nd floor and found it no problem— they will help with bags. There are tea-making facilities. Enjoy! I wish I’d stayed longer!
