Villa Chitdara is centrally located on a street that runs parallel to the main Sakkaline Road, and is steps from many excellent restaurants including Tat-Mor, Cafe Ban Vat Sen, Arisai, l'Elephant and not far from others such as Cafe Banneton and Blue Lagoon. LP is so walkable that if you're located somewhere in the middle of the peninsula, most things are close. Monks walk down the street each morning around 6:30AM and you are never more than a half block from groceries, drinks, bike rentals and laundry services. The property and rooms are relatively new (opened in 2007) and built to modern European standards. The beds, pillows and towels are decent, the floors, walls and ceilings are clean, there are few mosquitos (at least in December when we were there) and the (non-flat) TV worked well. There was air conditioning, handy power points, wireless internet that worked as well as anywhere in LP and a (noisy) fridge which we unplugged. The rooms are not too dark, and have a reasonable number of surfaces upon which to place your belongings. The eating area is a separate pretty pavilion overlooking a garden. A modest breakfast (eggs, fruit, toast, pancakes, coffee or tea but no meat items) is provided. You choice of rooms is either ground floor or second floor, front or back. Every room has a small balcony with table and two chairs, the back rooms more private and peaceful as they face the garden, while the second floor balconies facing front would allow you to watch the monks as the parade each morning (still wearing your pajamas). Probably the least desirable rooms would be ground floor facing the front, but they're not that bad. The street itself is relatively peaceful most of the day. Be prepared for 4AM temple drumming, roosters crowing and dogs barking, but it's not worse than anywhere else in and around town. The owner/operator Alex speaks good English and fluent French, and the staff are quiet, friendly and helpful. l would definitely stay again for the price.
