nice location in this relatively small town. as with all of the nicer hotels in these parts (Thailand, Laos, Cambodia), the service is fantastic. every morning the monks (mostly novices, ie <20yrs old) pass by for alms. the tourists line the streets to give them food provided by the locals. it's very interesting. we were able to watch the proceedings from our balcony on the morning that we did not participate. the room was clean and each night they come in to turn down the bed. we happened to be in the room on one occasion and it was very cute to watch. the people are so nice. they have bicycles to rent at a whopping $3 per day! great way to meander around the town taking in all of the life.
