Well located, basic but charming guesthouse. The Lodge is a former spice trader's shop house and the entrance and reception area has lots of historic character. The rooms and breakfast are basic, as you would expect for the price but it is kept very clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. It's well located and doesn't suffer from too much... More

We stayed here for 5 nights as a couple. The hotel has heritage decor and furniture. The garden room we were in was damp and had a very strong musty smell pretty poor. Wi fi was not available only down in the lobby area. Plus side the staff were very friendly and helpful. Don't get to excited about the breakfast... More

Very helpful staff, excellent location, clean & quiet room, decor and furniture suit heritage and add character. Staff were happy to help with my luggage, book me a taxi and help me with a Wi-Fi problem, all at no charge. Would stay there again

Walk straight out the hotel into a popular area, right next to the river. Room was basic but clean with working AC and a surprisingly good shower. Staff were helpful and friendly. They provide different kinds of lockers for your valuables which is a thoughtful and really helpful touch.

Pro: Staff at front desk very helpful and friendly, Chinatown, colonial area, mall all located in the streets behind the hotel. Con: Wifi in lobby area only (get bitten by mosquitoes at night in the lobby), poor reception for TV channels (limited choice). You must pay the total amount of your stay upon arrival in cash.

This hotel has a fantastic location on the Main Bazaar, just across the road from the river. All the staff are very, very friendly and helpful. The communal areas are really cool - there's a lovely courtyard in the middle of the building and a big, well-equipped kitchen (although we didn't use it as there are many good, cheap restaurants...

Owners were friendly and very helpful, the room had all necessities shower with soap, toilet with toilet paper, clean bed and even a TV. Though most rooms were occupied it wasn't noisy. Breakfast was minimal but so was the price. Chilled Water was available 24hrs for free which is amazing. It's cheaper to book directly with them, you get a... More

I like the setting of the hotel. its classic and the woods structure is pleasing. The furniture, the lobby, room setting, those remind me my hometown. Dont rely on the supplied soap. Bring your own toiletries.
