Nothing. The pictures are not even close to reality. This was the worst place I booked through Agoda. I will not recommend it at all and think that Agoda should not have a place like this on offer.

Excellent accommodation destination
Friendly staff and we'll kept surroundings. The guest house is situated in a quiet and peaceful environment
I enjoyed my stay and the services given were excellent. The guest house was able to recommend a reputable taxi company and I had no problems with transportation.

not too good
dear owner: firstly the bathroom the water was not flowing properly. secondly i asked for breakfast, she then went to wake someone else to come and make breakfast for us. i ended up cancelling the breakfast and asked for just toast. the good thing is that the lady was very hospitable and very friendly. it is a beautiful place, with proper staff it will be very successful.

Great potential but poor maintenance culture
Location was perfect; peace & quiet; friendly staff
The guest house has clearly not been maintained since the 2010 soccer World Cup. Lightbulbs not working, rusty side lamps, dead bird left on balcony and I could go on with more to say. I'm glad the air-conditioner worked all the time otherwise it would have been unbearable with the heat & high humidity. You could clearly see that the place had a great potential and was indeed a 4 star in the early days but it's unfortunate that it has not be maintained over the years.

Average experience
placement and friendly staff
was not bad, but need to upgrade facilities and redo some things. Sheets on the bed did not have underblankets so ended up sleeping on the mattress alone halfway through the night
