“Basic and cheap”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Lots of reviews we read of this place gave high marks on the "you get what they'll say you get" view...which is fair enough. We found it to be ok. Yes it's clean, and has the limited facilities it claims to, and the price is low, but overall the rooms are still very basic, and a little shoddy, which undermines the cleanliness.

The location is ok, but we're pretty confident that for the same money you could find a nicer room in a better location.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

I stayed in a fan room wich is rather spacious, bed is big and comfortable, linen seems new and clean. Very clean guesthouse, all day long you can meet cleaning ladys in one place or another. The area is quite, but in 10 minutes you can reach Megkong river. There are lots of local cafes nearby, lundary service places and a pharmacy. The staff is nice an ready to help but not too persistent. The only problem was that the toilet in the room didn't flash automatically.

Perfect guest house located in the city center and ten minutes away from the crowded area + Wifi is included.
Staff is very nice.
--------
Many people give reviews comparing a guest house to a 5 stars hotel.
I believe a review should be related to what you get for a price, and to the matching (or not matching) to the description provided.

Room Tip: I got one of the rooms that face the courtyard
