I would have rated this hotel a 5 star. I should be generous and do so. Perhaps it deserves it. If i could, it would be 4.5.
The Villa Nagara is in the perfect location, on the riverside of the Nam Khan, the best place to be, close to restaurants and market but not in the middle of all that. The hotel itself is cool, well decorated and thought out. The only point is the service - nobody speaks English. They are friendly, but this hotel is too expensive to not be able to ask a question or two. So - 4.5.
In terms of rooms, I had the best in the place, on the second floor, with balcony and windows onto the river. Other rooms are less attractive - my colleague was in a windowless room off the lobby. The room I was supposed to be in was also off the lobby, ground floor. So luckily I was upgraded. The room was big, amazing view, two free beers and two free cokes in the fridge each day! They specifically pointed that out to me, and I must admit it is an amenity I have never before run across. Also - have a beer at the bar next door - I think it is called the Blue Ice - their happy hour is quite reasonable and things pick up a bit later.
Pros - Location location locat.... Nice room, if you get one of the right ones. Well done, decorated nicely. Breakfast at the hotel's riverbank cafe.
Cons - Expensive vs other guest houses and B&Bs. You need to get one of the good rooms for it to be worth it. No English.
