“Friendly, reasonably priced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2009

Friendly, English-speaking staff. A welcoming, warm atmosphere.
All right, it isn't the finest building in town, but the service is good, the beds are clean, and the bathrooms are adequate (with running hot shower).
The terrace is pleasant for breakfast or dinner (even if the prices are a little high). Spectacular views of the sunset!
Easy walk to the city centre, ten minutes from the airport!
Helpful, pleasant people.
Very reasonably priced!

Stayed December 2008, traveled on business

The hotel says its a 10 minute walk from the city center but I don't know how they defined the city center because it didn't take 10 minutes to get there. We had to take a tuktuk everytime to get anywhere. We arrived at night and the room was full of mosquitoes, we had to ask for bug spray every time before leaving the room. They claim a riverside view, and yes they do have it, but the view is marred by their "Live Music" restaurant by the river's edge which had us listening to the singer over loudspeakers both nights we were there til about 11pm. The bathroom has a shower spout that aims into the toilet, or the door depending on which way you direct it. For US$35/night, you are better off looking for something that's really near the city center.

  • Liked — The quick breakfast service
  • Disliked — The location...and the mosquitoes
