The best thing about this guesthouse is the location, very central for those who like to stay in a central location like myself, only minutes walk from the beach, night market and entertainment district.
The building is a strange design, tall and cylindrical, consequently you can look out of the room from both sides and view the outside world. The rooms are situated on a west- east orientation, so with windows on both sides the sun blasts into the rooms at sunrise and sunset from opposite directions. This was a negative point for me, the late afternoon sun was ok but I wasn't keen on the early morning sun shining in the room at 6am in the morning. The rooms are reasonable and the bathrooms are quite spacious.
The hotel has a lobby and an outdoor patio on the first floor facing out onto the street with seating and tables. The problem is, the staff are maudlin and unwelcoming so one doesn't feel the inclination to be around them. After a few minutes of lounging on the patio I began to feel like an intruder and beat a hasty retreat. The bathrooms have a built in soap and shampoo dispensers installed but the soap dispenser was empty and there was only a tiny bit of shampoo in the shampoo dispenser so take your own soap if you do decide to stay here.
I only stopped one night but the next morning I have numerous sizeable bites and welts on my torso. This could have been a mosquito or it could have been bedbugs, so I'll reserve judgement, but my partner was unaffected so a mosquito was the most likely cause.
In my opinion this guesthouse is very average but bearing in mind it's budget accommodation one can't expect too much. It would have been better if the staff were friendlier, don't expect too many smiles if you choose to stay here. There's better options in the same price bracket in Hua Hin but there's also worse ones.
