We booked online after reading reviews and deciding what we were looking for - clean, cheap, safe rooms close to Kata Beach- could be found at SFR Guesthouse. After some initial confusion with our booking - which the owner Terje sorted out and found us an alternative bed in a neighboring guesthouse for the night after a complimentary meal - we settled in to the SFR guesthouse the following night. The rooms were clean with typical firm matresses found in all Asian hotels & accommodation. The rooms at the front of the guesthouse were light and airy and I slept well without being disturbed by street or bar noises. We were not disappointed by the location - an easy 5 minute stroll to the beach and an easy stroll in either direction to a range of restaurants and shops yet set back off the main road so away from the motor bike and tuk-tuk traffic. The staff were friendly and accommodating and we ate at the restaurant several times during our 10 day stay and enjoyed every meal. When we decided to extend our stay, Terje accommodated our request although this required some juggling of rooms and spending 2 nights on a rather uncomfortable futon sofa bed. Having travelled extensively throughout Asia over the past 20 years, SFR guesthouse is typical of a more memorable guesthouse experience. Would I stay here again? Absolutely! I loved the quirkiness, charm and intimacy of the small guesthouse and it's characters.
