Saw the urban guesthouse on trip advisor and we were determined to stay. When we got there we were greeted by the owner and chef Cyril. He has to be one of the most humble kind man I have ever met; he sorted us out with rooms straight away and offered us any advice we may have wanted. Cyril will... More

He told me everything I needed to know and also cooks some of the best food I've tasted in the world! Highly... More

The rooms are tired and old, with very hard beds and only one pillow placed on each with just a small blanket at the end. The room was the hottest I'm the building and you were charged an extra 150 baht for the air con but the day we stayed was when the owner was off and the shop shut... More

Really great location on Chaweng beach, near the cleaner, more beautiful parts of the beach, which was nice! Owner is really helpful and friendly, and made the best pasta and caiparinhas we've had in SE Asia! Would definitely recommend and stay here again!

We stayed for two nights, it's very central all main bars and clubs within few minutes walk, the beach is a stone throws away. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the pasta they serve up is gorgeous! Only reason not a 5/5 star is for tiny reasons no great shakes, the towels given were basically hand towels and the... More

The guest house was located along the main road in Chaweng which was great, only a 3 minute walk to the beach! Rooms were clean, the shared bathroom was also kept to a high standard! Cyril the owner of the guest house was very helpful and friendly: helped to arrange moped hire (cheaper than off the main road), recommend a... More

My sister and I stayed 2 nights in "the loft" and we had an amazing stay! One of the best rooms for the price and it was clean, had a nice separated shower, couch, tv and air con! What really made the stay was Cyril, the owner. He really cares about running his guest house and restaurant to high standards.... More
