Great little hotel with an incredibly nice and welcoming owner. I traveled with 3 other people and we all shared a room with 2 queen sized beds and one bathroom which provided more than enough space for us and all of our bags. The rooms and hotel in general feel like you are living in someones actual house and guest... More

This is a nice hotel situated opposite Phusei hill and amongst several local bars/restaurants which makes it great to experience the night life here and within easy distance to walk around and meander the Old Town. The staff went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable at any time of night or day as we did wander in... More

Music across the street was loud in our room until 11:30 pm. Owner lied to us about fair prices for tuktuks, and tried to convince us to buy our slow boat tickets from a travel agency, for a $30 markup, when we ended up buying them at the pier very easily. Bathroom was incredibly hot.

After confirming and being in regular touch with Mr Samor, he somehow made a mistake of not updating our booking. We arrived to find they had only one night available and wanted us to move to another property the next day. Since we were there only for two nights we didn’t want to waste time moving s insisted they put... More

Nice hotel - booked online - way more expensive than just turning up (sorry trip advisor / agoda.) The room itself was nice - well lit, clean, with a nice view. What we didn't account for when we checked in was that at 7pm the whole street is inundated with bar music. The pulsing bass lasts too around 11:40pm. It... More

Hotel was very nice....the rooms were very clean and looked very new! It was hard to believe that we were only paying $25 a night for an A/C room, because that place did not look like a budget hostel, but more like a good hotel. People at the front desk were very friendly. The location is not too bad. If... More

The owner was nice, but we only saw him once. The room was great, huge with lots of windows and nice clean bathroom. The room had everything you want, tv, fridge, a/c and fan. But there was no atmosphere here, also we had no hot water for the 2 days we stayed. We paid $40 per night but didn't get... More

We stayed in a private ensuite double in August. Room was acceptable, nice big double bed, a proper hotel room rather than a hostel and good value for money. The bathroom was decent enough. Staff were very friendly and helpful in things such as laundry, which they do on-site. All round solid if you need a cheap place to stay.

We stayed here for three nights and had a great time. The location is very very good. Everything important is within walking distance. A very nice walk that is, especially when turning right from the entrance and walking on the riverside. The owner (?) and his daughtar are heartbreakingly nice and helpful. She can give some very good tips for... More

If you were thinking of booking this hotel because of the great reviews, think again. This simple hotel is on the tiered side.it is across from a club that plays very loud music until 11:30 pm. Our room was # 21. We were not provided with 2bottles of free water which is customary. There was no shampoo or body wash... More
