very nice hosts. a nice big kitchen where everyone has breakfast together, which is relaxed.
We had a large room on the side which was a bit chilly, so I think the rooms in the main house are smaller but may be a bit more cosy.

I would like to thank the Owners and Staff of Lucky Bean Guest House for their hospitality and friendliness. I enjoyed my stay there and the accommodation was very central to all my venues I needed to be at for my meetings.
The Guest house is well run and maintained with comfortable rooms.
Thank you once again.

Recomendo demais!! A equipe e o proprietário Conway são ótimos e estão sempre dispostos a ajudar. Como fui como viajante independente (eu e minha mãe), eles nos deram muitas dicas, adequadas ao nosso perfil. O bairro cheio de jacarandás floridos é um espetáculo a parte. Fica em uma região tranquila para andar e perto da famosa 7th Avenue, com muitos bares e restaurantes. Os quartos são limpos, decoração de bom gosto e tem wifi gratuito. É se hospedar e relaxar.
The staff and the owner Conway are great and are always willing to help . I like how independent traveler (me and my mom ) , they gave us many tips suitable to your profile .

I chose Lucky Bean because it was close to where I was working and because the owner responded within minutes to my enquiry through SafariNow. It is a great little B&B. My room had a fantastic view towards the CBD and was well designed. The standing fan in the room was altogether too complicated though - you just need on/off/hi/low! The breakfast was great and relaxed and all the guests sit at the same table which I enjoyed. There also is a bookshelf with a great selection of books about the local area you could browse through. Highly recommended. And considering Melville's tiny properties I was delighted to find there was secure parking!
