Really amazing view from the roof there. Nice brekky like Nutella pankake, fruit salad, omelette and curd. Very good location. Plenty of shop and restaurant around. Even a place very close where you can enjoy swmming pool. Nice and helpful staff. Room ok for the price.

Location of hotel is fine but rooms are not that great. Rooms are average, service was fine. Wifi doesn't work at all. Only good thing about hotel that it is close tourist spots. Not much worth.......

I find it average. Good for backpackers. View is good from the restaurant and beds are not that comfortable in the rooms. I Will recommend this for one or two night stay here. Must carry all out or other mosquito killers. they bugs a bit in night.

I just spent one night in this guesthouse and it was ok. Location is great. The view from the roof is amazing but there is not a restaurant...just some dirty chairs. Shiva is not dirty but not well maintained too.

“Rooms on the 3rd and 4th floor are the closest to wifi signals and you will be sure it works. Otherwise, the rooms on the first floor have good value for money if you don't mind not having a biew on the lake”
