I enjoyed my stay at Golden Takeo. The staff is very welcoming and helpful, giving tips on how much things should cost and helping to arrange tuk tuk travel at reasonable rates as it is easy to be gouged by unfamiliar drivers.
The room was small but clean and very comfortable. Lots of tv channels if you want some down time, wifi, and a hot water shower. The bed was also very comfortable. I visited during the New Year's celebration so one night there was a party that was so loud the music shook the windows but otherwise it was a very quiet and pleasant location.
The guesthouse is about 15 minutes walk from pub street and the old/night market which I found to be really convenient. A tuk tuk only costs $1 which is extremely doable.
The breakfast was great every morning with choices from a menus, fresh fruit, and tea or coffee. The top floor location for breakfast is very nice as it has open air and a nice breeze.
I had transport arranged for me through the guesthouse and the tuk tuk driver was prompt and very friendly. Unfortunately my return transport did not show up and I had to arrange for another tuk tuk as I waited 15 minutes and he did not arrive.
The only other complication was returning to the guesthouse at 12:30 one night to find the door locked and no one answering. Seeing as you leave the keys with them I was worried I would have to sleep outside but I was able to wake Prom and was let in about 5-10 minutes later. If you are going out maybe inform him as he believed I was already in the room.
Otherwise, my stay was very pleasant and enjoyed myself.
