The hotel was nice for backpackers, reasonable price, assessable area to bars/clubs and restaurants. The rooms we're nice and clean, but only one plug socket to a room, overall good rooms, however the staff in the restaurant would over charge you for food and the service was slow and staff, very rude.

We stayed here for 5 nights, the cost of the guesthouse is quite reasonable working out to about £14 a night for a double room; however if booking online it can be cheaper. On arrival it had what we wanted, a swimming pool, double bed, a decent bathroom and air conditioning. We found out the first night of our stay... More

Most awful place on our trip so far! Yesterday short changed me and even though I was still stood at the desk with my incorrect change they called me a liar. Then whilst at the pool we returned to our room to find the cleaners had left the door wide open with all our belongings visible to everyone walking by.... More

It's old but well kept and clean. The rooms are small, bathroom large, watch your step, the Thai's build bathrooms at three levels. Depending on the season the price is between $23 - $32. The food is good and reasonably priced. They have a wonderful pool. The best part is the location, only a short walk to the old city.

A very nice place to stay; quiet, located on the moat, many attractions within walking distance of, well, everything. Nice swimming pool, can even sunbathe topless! In house coffee shop and a restaurant. Not the best food but adequate breakfast and light fair. Friendly, English speaking staff.

This was a bad start on a great holiday. Small rooms, bad AC,renovation felt like it was 20 years overdue, the bathroom was just awful. No security box in the room. You can find a lot better hotels for the same price.

This was such good value! We tried to book in again as we passed through on our way back to Bangkok, but it was fully booked. The rooms, although small were clean and very comfortable. The bathroom had a hot shower, toilet and basin and we had air con.There was a beautiful sitting area overlooking the pool, all carved teak... More

Stayed here for approximately 10 minutes, the bed was as old as any I have ever seen, the windows didn't shut, the door didn't lock, the Aircon was useless. Obviously some of the pictures you see on the web were taken a long time ago! When we asked to check out due to the place being awful. The staff wanted... More

I would like to begin by saying I have never written a review before. Never found a need but I truly want people to not experience what I did at this guesthouse. We were very excited upon arrival as my friends and I were exhausted after two nights in Bangkok, and the idea of laying poolside seemed very appealing. We... More
