Reviewed March 8, 2011

I was very happy with my stay at Thida's. The quiet and relaxed guesthouse is located right on the peninsula in footwalking distance to the mainstreet, a host of restaurants and temples. The manager speaks excellent French and English, was friendly and helpful! The rooms are big, clean and have a very nice atmosphere with wooden furniture. If you agree not to use the air-con you can get a cheaper rate (low season). Free Wi-Fi in the rooms. The guesthouse also rents bycicles and has laundry service for decent rates.

We booked elsewhere but the reservation was mistakenly cancelled. After the embarrassed host and I had visited four full places I was very happy when he arranged for us to stay here. We needed two rooms and I was a little anxious when I heard that this place was almost empty but figured beggars cant be choosers. In the end it was fantastic. My son (9) and I shared a huge room with king and single beds, mosquito nets, beautiful shuttered windows that could be opened wide and leant out of (and from which we could see the procession of the monks just up the street). My mother had an adjacent room with a queen (?) bed. Two great bathrooms, hot hot water, coffee and tea, an internal balcony with a few books and a lounging spot and a cheerful student at the desk with excellent English. A great location steps from the Mekong and around the corner from restaurants.
Any drawbacks? No internet or wifi (but we didnt need it), the shower is a bit wayward in direction.
Cost $25 for one room and $30 for the other. Still can't figure out why they were not full.

A lovely, laid-back, quiet, pleasant, family-operated guesthouse. Talking with the owner is like getting sage family advice ... and he gave me a nice deal on the room rate as well. The wooden interiors have a calming effect from the moment you step in, and the guesthouse itself is on a very quiet street. I usually don't write reviews in such warm and fuzzy tones, but my stay at Thida was so cozy that I can't help it!
