4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Very friendly owner, serving a nice breakfast and diner on request. Nice garden with hammocks to relax after visiting the tempels. We rented bikes here, which were not comfortable or reliable and slightly overpriced. The more expensive rooms are Very nice with a thick matrass and nice lake view.
