Very rude owner, dont stay here
The rooms are big, but the bed is not so good and you can hear a lot of noice from outside. The owner (an onder man, we think he was the owner) is very very rude and not helpfull at all, the boys who are working in the hotel we kind though. Because of the attitude of the owner I hope no one will stay in this hotel.

Friendly and helpful staff, good location
After half month trip for last day we stayed here for one night. The hotel is located near center in quiet lane and you never hear street noise and be able to relax. Facilities like water and tea help you to feel more comfortable. Nearby you can find couple of excellent cafes, for example The Gallery Cafe, and have a dinner there. Manager helped us to print boarding passes and and answered all our questions.

Mike. Malaysia.
The staff which was serving breakfast in the morning seems unfriendly. Very stingy with the breakfast. No smile at all. Serve coffee or tea without a spoon to stir. Need to ask everytime. Where else the manager is very friendly and good. Definitely need to improve the service.

Nice decor, close to shopping area
Very nice place, clean, nicely decorated, rooms are spacious and so are bathrooms (with a tub). Balcony, AC, TV, phone and close to Odel (10 min by tuk tuk). Apart from the room, there's a nice sitting area upstairs as well as downstairs. Perfect place, we loved it.

Quiet Comfort in Busy City
Quiet and Open Bungalow, Comfortbale Beds, Breakfast
I was travelling with my family and we had a very pleasant stay. The decor is beautiful, and the house was spacious and open for us to play downstairs or upstairs in the sunny top floor. Breakfast was nice, and the staff was always on-hand. If you want other meals, however, you'll have to go out for them.
