“Bed Bugs!!! Do not stay here!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

I have recently stayed here with my fellow backpacker and we couldn't get away fast enough. After been given our 4th room as none of the others were suitable due to the stench & outside noise we were given a twin room even though we booked a deluxe double.
I agree with the reviews that the aircon is excellent but who wants good aircon when you've got bed bugs. My friend was bitten over 20 times all down her leg.
The wifi signal is also very poor especially if you are on the top floor.
The man behind the desk was the rudest most ignorant man I've met on my travels. He was so lazy, after we complained about our room he ended up just giving us the keys to the rooms that were available and told us to look ourselves.
In the end it didn't even work out cheap because the price quoted was per person not per room.
We booked this guesthouse as it was advertised as a b&b but there was no breakfast included.
Upon reflection we shouldn't have even paid our bill after the bed bugs but you live and learn!
A shocking attempt at a guesthouse. Stay clear of this place at all costs!

I was looking for a clean and comfortable room at low cost because i'd be spending much of my time there working. At agoda special rate I find this hotel to be very good value. Great location to have a quick bite to eat with many restaurants, 3 min walk to riverside and so many bars to have a drink in the evening. Staff is very friendly and tries very hard to help. Hotel has a nice bar down stairs with fair pricing. I will probably stay here next time unless the price goes up too much. Wifi reliability is great, which is very important for me. Deluxe rooms dont have windows, only a glass door into the hallway, not too big of a deal for me. Also, hotel has no elevator so staying on 1floor provides a bit of excercise which is probably a good thing.

Room Tip: Deluxe double room at down stair very good ,clean,comfort, filling like home.
