Full smoke in the house. -My room wasn't renovated yet, so very tired looking and a little bit dirty. -No windows in my room. -Breakfast wasn't delicious. -Weak Wi-Fi. -No swimming... More

Clean hotel, good service. They even provide 1 person / room for boat ride to the boat market (didnt have time to go tho). But it is an old hotel... don't expect new modern ambiance.

We stayed a total of 3 nights, on and off. The room is quite comfortable, bathroom very clean, and good enough facilities in the room. We didn't have river view,... More

I stayed only one night. The room was good and staffs were kind. I could order the boat trip to water market at the reception and there is no additional fee for it. The trip started around 5:00 a.m. but the boat departed from the parking area of the hotel. The restaurant Jukun was also good.

I liked the feel of old timber and something of history in this hotel. It was very comfortable and rooms were large and well fitted and maybe recently renovated. The road was a bit noisy.
