The location was OK with a few shops/bars/restaurants around but realistically a tuk tuk ride to the river (and the tuk tuk man couldn't find it on the way home - even with the business card!).
The reception area is very nice and the smoothies were awesome (although they 'ran out' for 2 of the 3 days we were there) but this is deceptive as the rooms are far from 'boutique'. Our room was old and shabby and had the worst shower we have had in SE Asia - no pressure at all. The whole place is a bit creepy with locks on the outside of the doors and there was nowhere to put valuables - they would not keep them behind reception if you were going out for the evening.
We paid $20 per night and compared to what we have been staying in for the same budget this was poor and overpriced. We won't be back and my advice would be to check out some of the places closer to the river.
