We stayed here in peak season and generally loved our stay. Fantastic location right in the center, very comfortable and quiet room (the doors are padded against external noise!), and charming helpful staff. Great restaurant recommendations too!
We just had a couple of issues that made us question the price of our room (the Saffron room), relative to local prices.
-The water was an issue, generally being very hot or occasionally only cold. The hotel is working hard to rectify this in a limited water supply environment but in the meanwhile you can't expect every shower to be at the desired temperature.
-We pre-arranged a car and english speaking guide for our first day. Big mistake! Car is unnecessarily expensive and our guide spoke terrible english. We reported this to the owner so I expect he has been struck off but we still paid for him and are disappointed the hotel couldn't have ensured a guide who really does speak English given their local knowledge and connections. Recommend simply hiring a tuk tuk as much cheaper and the drivers English is usually very good! Otherwise ensure the hotel only hires a guide with excellent English.
Overall we really liked this place. Just a couple of things to improve and it will be truly 5* and correctly priced!
