A Good Location with a Comfortable Bed
This is a very conveniently located property within easy walking distance to downtown Eureka Springs. Positives were the very comfortable king sized bed & handy location. Overall, the unit was clean but has a light colored carpet that gives the impression of needing to be cleaned. The unit was as described but resembles more an older motel unit than a condo. While adequate, there isn't a lot of room outside the bed. With one chair, a couple will spend most of their time sitting on the bed to watch television. One good option is sitting outside, using some of the patio furniture if the weather is pleasant. We spent most of our time out of our room & used it primarily for sleeping & a place to shower. We walked downtown each morning for breakfast & avoided dealing with the short supply, fee parking. Check in can be done without seeing anyone but we were given outdated entry code. A call quickly fixed that issue. Although located right by the busy road leading to downtown, traffic noise was never a problem inside our unit. The heat & cooling is provided by a standard window unit. It does have a mini fridge which we did use. If you are looking for a basic place to stay with a comfortable bed for a reasonable rate, this is a good place for you. If you are looking for an upscale place with more room, amenities & seclusion, this may not be for you. This place is priced about right for what it offers. Eureka Springs has plenty of more upcale lodging that generally costs more. In general, the Bella Paradiso unit met our needs & expectations for our 3 day stay in Eureka Springs.
Space was very well maintained inside and the decor was very beautiful. Perfect getaway size
We found the property to be very inviting and well kept. It’s in a great area that allows you some tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of the nightlife however we were not aware that so many places were closed here for the winter. The room was very pretty and provided us with all the amenities we needed for a two day stay at a great price. Only concern we had was the stairs as they froze over one night with rain. It made for an extremely dangerous departure though they were treated upon our return. I would maybe suggest they have a bucket of ice melt that can be left out during the winter months that allow their guests to treat as needed. Just a thought. We will return at some point.
Room was very nice. Clean and smelled great.
Overall it was a great place to stay. Not too far of a walk to downtown shopping and restaurants I believe a larger tv would make unit 10 even nicer.
We loved staying here. Room was clean and accommodating. Relaxing outdoor areas to hang out with friends.
Cute and clean place. It’s a short walk or Uber ride to downtown. We will stay here again.
