Frequent questions
Is this the first time I book in a B&B, is it different from a hotel?

PhotoGuest is a family-run bed and breakfast. The comfort is comparable to that of an excellent hotel, there is no 24-hour reception and for this it is necessary to communicate the arrival time. After check-in you will be completely autonomous.

The online travel agencies like or Expedia, work on commission, so it is normal that the booking made through their intermediation is more expensive.
