It was teally dirty and mouldy with bugs everywhere. Full of ants in the bathroom. The towels and sheets had stains on them, the window was rotten and almost fell apart. Ac was bad. Stairs were rotten and scary. But good location and ok price, if you can deal with the dirtyness.

Absolutely the most horrendous hotel we have stayed in since backpacking around Thailand. The welcoming, was average and when we got to the room the safe didn't work, so I asked the man to come and fix it but after half an hour he'd still not arrived, as we was unpacking myself and partner started looking around properly at the...

There is one good thing to say about this place - It's Cheap. Otherwise, spend your time and money on something better. Bed was Like concrete, AC didnt work, window nearly fell out and was rotten. That was the only window in the apartment. We stayed in the 4 pl. Apartment. We paid for 2 nights, but left after the... More

Absolutely awful place. Both beds in the room were broken when we arrived. After complaining the staff came and put a tin of paint under the bed to hold it up. Dirty mattresses just lying in the corridors. Strange marks on the walls. We were on the third floor, there's no lift and the staircase is not stable. Unhelpful, stroppy... More

We stayed in what was described as the penthouse room (I think because it was on the top floor and had a balcony). The steps to climb to the room are really dangerous and our room opened right onto the third set of steps. Our room was locked with a padlock! The aircon was ineffective, outside balcony door did not... More

The staff were friendly but that's as good as it got! The rooms were outdated, unclean, sticky and smelly. We had to wait ages for any staff members to appear when we found out we were infected with bed bugs. Once the staff were told, they said they knew and everywhere had them! The locks on the doors weren't good... More

If you like youself just even a little bit don't do this to yourself. That was like a horrormovie. First aircon didn't work, than it starts to work than started to lick, than everywhere was wet, even our backpacks and our clothes. There were no lobby and a terrible smell everywhere. It was basically catosthrophic!!!

I booked 3 days via Agoda (low season and special deal). The check in was smooth; the guy at the reception explained they have two buildings, that you get 15% discount in their restaurant and that you can get a scooter for 200 baht a day. He also handed out a map of the area. I was shuttled over to... More

Don't see why this place is getting such a bad rap? From what ive noticed, there is two akwa guesthouses, because every time i got a taxi id get sent to the old one, the one i stayed at is next to a proper massage place and upstairs to akwa restaurant. From what i've heard its changed management recently so... More
