Ok, so this isant the Ritz but owner very nice chap and night porter very hospitable even with his limited English. Great location, basic but clean rooms - I had an upstairs one which was perfect for me. Owner must realise past problems with mosquitos as when I mentioned I couldn't sleep one night he said "are the mosquitos bothering you" - they hadn't been a problem at all but he offered to spray my room to eradicate them, which the night porter came as promised to do at dusk.
If you want somewhere quiet, clean, friendly and not too far away from everything this place is ideal. Would definitely recommend it.
I'd say the only downside with this guesthouse is that there is no inside air con communal area - but there is 2 outside areas where you can sit and chill out in relative peace.
