Great boutique hotel with lots of character. About a 10 minute walk to night markets and 15-20 to temples in the city. Rooms well maintained, friendly service, quiet atmosphere. I would recommend getting breakfast at least once as it is delicious and well-presented. If you get bored, they have DVD's at reception and a small swimming pool.

Tucked away down some quiet roads, felt safe enough though and there weren't many dogs. Location fine, recommend cafe 29 for cheap good breakfast, also. Also cafe thaan aoan did great food and the best chocolate banana smoothie! Rooms ok but they didn't always clean toilet room and never changed sheets in a full weeks stay. Breakfast good but pricey.

This hotel, tucked away on a quiet street, some distance from the attractions of the old city was perfect for us. Still within walking distance. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable of our tours and seemed to be able to sense and accommodate our every need. The facility was managed very well in that the establishment was up kept, clean, and... More

Location is great, short walk from the markets. Air conditioned room, clean rooms, wi-fi, friendly staff. Small pool. Unique style building. Only complaint is a dog that wouldn't shut up the first night, but that's not the hotels fault. And at such low rate, I can deal with that.

The place is extremely clean and the decor is comforting- dark wooden furniture, concrete floors, stain glass windows and a large, comfy bed. The washroom and toilet are in the separate rooms (something that is hard to come by in Thailand) and they provide you with two large towels and a small hand towel. There is also a large TV... More

Despite having received email confirmation via Booking.com and having contacted the hotel directly to confirm our reservation we were informed upon our arrival that the hotel had been overbooked and therefore couldn't accommodate us. In fairness the staff were very apologetic and had made alternative arrangements for us. However it was a disappointing start to our holiday.

Hotel is clean and relatively quiet. Has a little pool in the courtyard. Breakfast is included and is pretty good. In it's a great location just outside the old city (so it's an easy ten minute walk in, but is still quiet). Overall it's good value, but not spectacular.

We stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel is somewhat simple, but has a really nice and open atmosphere. Rooms are clean and the bed is super, (and that is what you want!) The swimming pool is small. Breakfast is great, especially the eggs! Personal is very helpful and nice, doing everything to make your stay as pleasant as possible!... More
