After finding this spot on booking.com, my boyfriend and I stayed at Avie Moriya Villa from May 2nd - 5th. We were extremely impressed with the price, service and location.
The bed was very comfortable, rooms were big and spacious (a bit dim, but opening the blinds makes a big difference). The owner was absolutely wonderful! He gave good recommendations, set us up with a Tuk-Tuk driver for the day (who was very lovely and took us anywhere we wanted to go for only 20 - 30 USD / day, depending on how long he was with us).
The location of this guesthouse is perfect - close to a bank (to exchange money at a better rate than anywhere else) and about a 5 minute walk from Pub Street.
There are no safes in the room, but the owner kindly offered to lock our passports up in his own personal safe. We decided to keep them on us, but after getting to know Luca we definitely would have felt comfortable leaving them with him.
* There is an Austrian restaurant only a stone throw away, and it was AMAZING! I have been living in Asia for a year and it was probably one of the best 2 meals I've had (sausage, potatoes, spaghetti and lasagna).
