My title kind of sums it up.
The room is too small. The room is not as convenient as other rooms of comparable price.
The location is inconvenient, just to get to the main road is a long walk. Hassle to grab a taxi or a tuk tuk. Yes, the management will get you 1 free tuk tuk a day... but who wants to bug them about that. And what if you need several trips during the day.
Nothing is an immediate walking distance away.
But the service is good. The hosts are nice and communicative.
While in this hotel, I opted for the floating market tour. It's very underwelming. In fact, it sucks. Not recommended.
The room is right next to the road, so it's NOISY at night.
The breakfast is "OK". Not great, not bad. Prefer to eat out.
Wifi connection in the room was off and on.
The area is also far from the major city activities.
I did lose weight walking around alot in the hot sun exploring this part of town, hoping to find something interesting....
