One Night Stay at Muntri House
I forgot the gentleman's name who helped check me in but he was very helpful and knowledgeable in showing me how to use the key to lock and let myself in after hours and providing maps and suggestions on the best places to eat. Shirely/Charleen? was very friendly and helpful in calling an uber for me as well as making sure I had maps to check out the street arts and eateries. Muntri House was cozy and I stayed on the 2nd floor in a double bed. Very clean and large size with AC and fan. I found the WI-FI to be strong and consistent. Bathrooms were separate and semi-outside. There were 4 of them that was combo shower/toilet and hair dryer was provided. Great location and easy walk to all points of interests. When I return to stay longer in Georgetown, I will be sure to go back to Muntri House.
