“Cheapest room facing the tample”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

I picked this plc coz it's opposite the temple where the morning alms procession passing every morning,and we were satisfied coz we got to see it from the balcony. The ritual every mornings start very early and we can hear the noice from the street pretty loud. So it's good for 1-2 days to get the best view of the morning alms,and then u can move to other side,more expensive rooms or different hotel like we did. But this hotel is convenient located too so if u don't bother to move is really doesn't matter.

Stayed here with a friend. Staff was helpful. Great little restaurants just to the left of the hotel with internet. Wonderful to awake early, get a coffee, sit on your balcony, and watch the monks as they process quietly to the temple right in front of you without being disrespectful. Night market just a 10 minute walk away. Quiet place to stay but just minutes away from everything. Bike rentals just a 5 minute walk away.

We were there for Pi Mai Lao and were glad to have a room in the rear block, away from the noise. Nice quiet end of town, great bakery a few doors away! Room was great and nice to have a verandah to sit outside...

Our room was on the ground floor just off the lobby. Good room, A/ C worked fine. Bathroom fixtures all worked well. It was kind of neat sleeping under a mosquito net, which wasn't really needed.
This is a guest house, and you take off your shoes at the front entrance. We liked this.
We got up a couple of times to see the Buddhist monks stretched out for blocks on end, receiving their daily alms from devotees. We also saw the busloads of tourists coming here to take their pictures and some made real idiots of themselves. Getting in the way of the monks, elbowing devotees out of the way for photos. This is a religious ceremony folks. Treat it as such or stay the hell away.
We use ear plugs at night so the street noises didn't affect us at all.
Great location. Within a couple of blocks of many cafes and restauarants catering to all taste buds.
The street is closed off at night to vehicles and is set up as a night market. Well worth the visit.
Overall, a very good hotel/guesthouse with very helpful and friendly staff. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Use ear plugs, if you want a sound sleep. Lots of outside street noises.

we picked a room on the balcony to watch the morning alms ceremony and while you have an eagle eye seat to see the monks, you also can see the tour companies arriving at 5:30am to set up things for the busloads of tourists that arrive at 6am. I saw some appalling behavior - people right up in the monk's faces using flash, blocking their route, giving them cheap food purchased from street vendors. Appalling. I moved to the back room. While its larger and more spacious, room B3 should be avoided as you feel like you are in the neighbors house. I cuold hear the baby crying in the night, the old lady clearing her throat all morning, and breakfast. However, the staff is nice, the hotel is pretty lovely. But the beds are very hard.

Room Tip: Avoid B3 for noise, if you want to see monks, upstairs front balcony is good spot.

We stayed here for four nights, three nights in a room in the rear block and one night in the front block ground floor next to reception.

The room in the rear block was the more expensive room, however we could only have it for three nights as it was already booked for the fourth. The room isnt massive but looks very nice, wood is everywhere. The shower pressure was poor but other than that the bathroom was ok. The view from the bedroom window isn't great but the court yard between the two blocks is also very nice.

The room at the front was a different story. On the plus side it faced the temple so we could watch the 6am routine of monks asking for food from our terrace. However, both the bedroom and bathroom are in bad need of refurbishment, there was also a damp smell. Thankfully it was only one evening.

Location is good, being only a couple of minutes walk from the centre of town and also opposite a temple.

I would stay here again, but I would want the room we had the first time round.

I recently arrived at this guest house and as I alighted from the taxi was asked if I had a booking, which I did. I then produced the voucher from Hotel Club for 3 nights and the the lady there then proceeded to tell me that I had to pay more as they had incorrectly stated the price. When I booked it was advertised as pay for 2 nights and one night free. I was left with little choice but to pay for an extra night as being in my late 60's I had neither the strength or the inclination to look around at that late in the day for further accomodation. I had read varying reviews on this guest house about changing rooms etc. but not about charging more. With hindsight I wish I had booked somewhere else as the bed was like sleeping on concrete and after paying less in both Siem Reap and Chiang Mai for excellent rooms this certainly wasn't value for money. I would not recommend anyone to stay there.
