Wonderful B&B... the location was very good and the staff were amazing.. I found the rate of the rooms expensive. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spotlessly clean but definitely not 5 star!!! Expensive Rooms lovely but Would rate as 3,5 or 4 star not 5

Staff very sweet and helpful, warm and welcoming. Had a lovely time trying to learn a bit of Koto. First room was spacious and clean but too hot for us with the early morning sun rising on that side. Mountain view wasnt bad but we absolutely loved the last four days when we upgraded to a room with oceanview. Just...

Mu husband and I only stayed for two nights, but we really enjoyed our stay at the Walden Suites. The rooms are very well-appointed and the marble bathrooms are fantastic. Although we didn't go for a swim, the pool area looks fantastic. The towels are soft and handsoap/shampoo/moisturiser is provided in refillable pump bottles. The staff were all very helpful...

We knew Walden already as a private home. Compliments to Eberhard and Melani who changed the old Villa into a very beautiful Hotel without loosing the charme and atmosphere of the past..Service and personal touch excellent. A place to come back to and to be spoiled..

Lots of valuable hints and support going beyond of what you would probably get in a hotel. Everybody has the willingness and take the time to help you. Once I was out...

Thank you for a lovely stay, a great start to our African honeymoon. Breakfasts were filling and tasty, and you were even able to accommodate us on our early morning departure with bread and cheese before we left. We loved the "honor system" kitchen, fully stocked with treats and beverages. Location was walkable to shops and dining, though lack of...

The Walden Suites offers accommodation for anyone who appreciates old school charm. We found the setting, the house, the garden and overall atmosphere delightful. The breakfast is super. Off-the road parking is an absolute bonus.

The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable: they assisted with booking daily tours, restaurants and taxis. The view on the ocean from our balcony and windows was stunning. The breakfast was very good with freshly baked croissants every morning to be eaten on the terrasse opening on the garden with flowers. A lovely way to start your day. We would...
