I found first off that there was abit of a language barrier which is no fault of the owners but rather being ignorant tourists. Yet the staff tried and were quite helpful. This a hotel that you have to consider your expectations first and the description is abit misleading.
There is no bar as stated, no food after breakfast and nowhere to sit outside of your room. (Meaning you have to dine out every night and cannot get a quick drink, nearby options seemed limited within walking distance) Breakfast may not appeal to everyone. It seemed frowned upon to have a generous helping of cereal too. If you want milk, ask for it. The air conditioning doesn't make a difference in the room and we personally found it too hot to sleep well at night. Don't try to check in early they will leave you waiting at the door til 2pm. The first day they kept our passport which I'm not a massive fan of but did give them back the following.
On the good side of things... The rooms and hotel was very clean, sheets and towels were very crisp and fresh being changed daily. This is a huge upside to me. The female owner seemed abit dubious of us at first but came around while the male was friendly from the start. We asked directions and we were given good ones. Breakfast wasn't what we are used to but it tasted very good and fresh each day.
It may seem I have noted more worse than good but that isn't so. I just disagree with how the hotel is described and despite the air con issue would be happy to stay there again. As long as you use a hotel for what it's intended a place to rest your head in clean beds, it's great.
