Beautiful airy guesthouse, the rooms may be a bit Spartan but are very comfortable with a large bed and a small balcony overlooking the River, a great place to enjoy an aperitif before hitting the town for one of the many eateries. We particularly liked the tranquillity of the garden bordering onto the river, the atmosphere of the terrace we are served breakfast, a good choice of continental and American fare, although personally I would have loved a little more in the way of Asian offerings, and for those who like a dip in the pool, it is rather inviting. The staff are friendly and helpful and contribute a lot towards making a stay here the pleasant experience that it is. It is a welcome change from both the ugly westernised high-rise hotels that have begun to spring up all over the town, in atmosphere, in authenticity and in pricing. All in all, thoroughly recommend!
