Our 3 day stay started with no pick-up at the river pier where our ferry had dropped us even though a pick-up had been earlier confirmed. The tuk-tuk drivers had no idea where the hotel was either so it was a while before we reached.
Check-in was casually handled by seemingly inexperienced staff. Followed by a long climb up stairs to the 4th floor cramped room in the 'Attic'.
The room itself was decent, clean and had a nice balcony. It also had ants! The hotel is decorated beautifully and is worth a good explore.
Breakfast was good though the portions really tiny and very slow service. The staff was often too busy chatting with each other to be found.
Not a place I would recommend till they get their act together
