Stayed 10 days at Saya Wasi, and the reviews are now out of date that praise it. Yes, the view is still fabulous, but the room we had was shabby, shop worn. The stairs to get up to the building were a killer. Open sewer along the sidewalk and stairway made the difficult breathing even worse. Shower head attachment was so loose that water sprayed everywhere. It was COLD, and the tiny room heater was running 24/7 to barely make it to the 60. The doorbell in the hallway rings for everyone, people going up/down stairs at all hours (including us!) sound like they are right in your room. Light from hallway leaks into the room, making it hard to sleep. Only phone was locked in maid's room, so it would ring for us, but no way to answer. Staff was a sweet as could be, but can not make up for downsides. My wife and I were glad to get out, and only stayed because we paid cash in advance! Get a hotel that has phones, a front desk, and doesn't look and feel like a Goodwill showroom at the end of a breathtaking (literally) climb.
