This was a great guest house with really helpful staff and the location was perfect. The rooms are large and comfortable and you couldn't want anything else for the price. The rooms all come with a kettle for making tea or coffee. Highly recommended.

Great location just off the main square. Not luxurious but has everything you need. It is clean and quiet. The reception staff are fabulous, always eager to help and spoke perfect English. Great value for money.

The location is really nice; very close to the main square but just enough away that it isn't crowded and noisy. The rooms are quaint and exceptionally clean. If you are looking for something upscale and modern then look somewhere else. The building is older but that is what makes it so charming. The rooms have dark old timber beams...

I was there with my mother, we stayed there for 3 nights. The style is very antique and we liked it a lot, for example there was a Singer sewing machine table. The staff was really nice and helped us a lot. The location is great, right in the old town. If you're looking for a modern hotel this is...

This place is fantastic value for money, this was my third visit and I plan to return! It is situated in a quiet courtyard just minutes from the main square and is full of old world charm. Although the Globtroter does not serve food this is not a problem as there is an abundance of fabulous restaurants on it's doorstep....

We arrived at the airport and we were collected by a driver laid on by the guesthouse as arranged who was extremely friendly and helpful. On arrival it was very straight forward which was good as we had 2 young kids that were extremely tired having arrived in after midnight. The gentleman behind the desk was very helpful and friendly....

Dear Suzy, Thank you for your lovely opinion on our Guest House and the staff. It is really motivating for us when we read such a positive feedback. I have redirected it to our reception desk so that everyone could read. Thank you once again and hope to see you again one day! Marek Manager

Positives: central location. Two minute walk to the market square. Large rooms. Complaints: it was an utter palaver to get checked in. It looks run down. There was someone (presumably homeless sleeping in the foyer). Instructions on where the rooms were was so poor - it was chaos. The receptionist was a bit rude as she was flustered following mistakes...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your opinion and comments. We always treat them seriously. I am sorry for all the convenience but please let me first add here a very important information which is I think crucial for other readers to understand the situation during the check in. I have to explain that you were not the individual tourist but...

Second time at the Globtroter, pleased to see it is still the same comfortable, warm, safe ad friendly guesthouse as it was before. Unfortunately this time though, we were placed in the rooms at the front building which is over 'The Square' nightclub. Friday night wasn't too bad for noise but Saturday was ridiculous - the bass from the music...

Clean, spacious, staff generally excellent, comfortable, and great location (2 blocks off main square). Facility has character - do not read "shabby." For Americans, ice system IS funky!! Quiet, good sleep.
