“Ok, nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

The room was ok, a bit grubby, beds were comfy enough but the sheets didn't feel particularly clean. The food in the restaurant was ok but I did get a bit of an upset stomach after having the mixed fried rice (think the fish might've disagreed with me)
Location was ok, within walking distance to the waterfront and thats where all the good bars and restaurants are

Thought this was a really great place to stay for the price. It is a bit dirty, there's quite a bit of dust in the draws and stains in the wardrobe, bits of wood a breaking off a little too, the paint job in the room hasn't been done with much care but none of these things effect the room really.

The bed it self is clean with no bed bugs, the general area of the room is clean & the bathroom is too. So all the area of the room which you actually need are clean.

The WiFi isn't very good, quite slow and doesn't work all the time.

The location of this guesthouse is good. It is close to many bars, restaurants, the market and the riverside.
Our room wasn't the cleanest, and our shower was pretty basic.
The owners were friendly and helpful. However on one occasion we waited a long time for our change, and were short- changed. By that time we couldn't be bothered to bring it up as it was only a dollar.

We payed $16 per night and thought that was a little overpriced. However I suppose we have to take into account that it is in the capital city.

Our room was up alot of stairs but was decent once we got there. This really is a budget hotel. It wasn't super clean but was comfy enough. The bathroom was very run down, yet the water pressure was GREAT! Good for short people, not so good for tall! Location is decent, close enough to walk around, although it does feel a little sketchy at night. The restaurant was great, decent price and great food. Staff was also really nice and helpful! Good place for budget travelers!

Me and my gf arrived on bus from saigon bit dazed and confused and fr some strange reason turned away from every guesthouse before this one telling us they were full. Came here spoke to girl on reception who speaks perfect english said she had room for 10 dollars we were so tired and moody from searching everywhere with no luck so took it. Our room was filthy sheets stunk tv didnt work properly and there were open window vents so noise was unbelievably loud in morning. For 10 dollars this was kind of expensive came from saigon where we had ac, flat screen tv brand new room in lovely modern hotel for the same price. To top it off laundry we had to fold ourselves despite paying 1.50 for a kilo!!!! Haggle the prices for a room if u do stay, shame really considering how nice family are!

Tuk tuk drivers brang us in this place telling it was cheap. But it was not so cheap ; we negociate the price and the receptionist ask us to tell to the tuk tuk drivers that the price was low and cheap. By this way the tuk tuk drivers never know the good price, and they have a lower commission. For the tourists, they have the wrong information to help them in the decision ! Really unfair.
Othewise, the room was big but not clean. It was really noisy.

The good points : very central to visit the town, not far from the river, a pool available and the food not so expansive. Last good point but not least : A very fast internet connection (so good to transfer pictures on a server).

Terrible place to stay; rooms are big but not clean, lots of stairs, looks like a maze.
Walking from the Riverfront to the guesthouse straight is not a good idea as St. 154 looked a bit odd to us, feeling not safe in the part of the street closer to the river. And quite dirty as it looked very poor.
They had good breakfast though.
My advise: look for another place to stay.
