Firstly, someone went into my room when there was a DO NOT DISTURB Sign hanging on my door. The bathroom smelt like urine. The plumbing was also a disaster. Spend a few more $ for a better place. They also didn't specify that the items in the fridge were not complementary. Very displeased!

Worst WiFi I've ever had in a hotel. You could get some sites, like FB, Google, but not others. I use Yahoo mail and it was impossible to connect to Yahoo. They actually have an IT guy on staff who spent an hour with me trying to help me use the WiFi, but it never improved and he never acknowledged... More

The hotel was booked for me, the staff friendly and place clean. The rooms are adequately supplied. Internet is awful but can get on at 5.00am as in this moment. The shower water is tepid and just about manageable to stand. The Tapas restaurant is nicely laid out, the drinks reasonable price however found $27 for food a little expensive... More

Hotel is clean and quiet. Room with balcony was reasonably spacious and AC worked fine, which is critical! However, fridge and safe never worked (seemed to be an electrical problem) and never could get it fixed despite call and visit to front desk. "Hot" water was lukewarm at best in the shower although reasonably hot at the sink. Given the... More

Breakfast is acceptable, rooms are just nice with balcony however sometimes you do get noise from other guest despite no noise timing from 11pm to 7am. I would personally rate it at average, staffs are friendly and reliable tuk tuk attached to the hotel.

Our experience in this hotel was wonderful! I would stay there again. The hotel was very clean. The room is very good too with a comfortable bed and a clean bathroom! The staff was friendly. It was one of the best hotels we stayed in during our 20-days trip in Vietnam and Cambodia. Upon arrival they give you a coupon... More

A nice hotel, with very friendly staff. The location isn't perfect, the shower cold, and ants all over the bathroom. The breakfast, served in the restaurant next door, is very good, although I'm unsure of the price (we booked through an agency).

Not much room to put your stuff... A stale smell to everything. Rather basic room, I will not be visiting again. The staff was OK but not particularily helpful.. It is about a 10-15 minute walk from the center of town, so it has that going for it I guess

I went there with my family during winter break. The staffs were very friendly and helpful and the food was simply amazing, especially the Chicken Josper one. There was also a standby tuk tuk where my family could travel around the city with ease. With these incredible experiences, we will definitely visit here again on our next trip.
