The location was about as central as you can get. Very helpful staff with great recommendations of where to eat for traditional italian food in non tourist areas. The only down point was the bedding was a little too small... Seemed to be sharing a single blanket on a double bed

i was dissappointed with the staff and the cleanliness of the place. Far from anywhere and quite pricey for what you get. there are plenty more cleanier, affordale and friendlier places around

View Property Reply

I'm quite often disappointed with the cleanliness and friendliness or guests and the way they sometimes adversely affect other people who stay. It also never ceases to amaze me how at the same time one person is complaining and rating us badly someone else is loving it, having the time of their life and probably won't bother to say anything. I guess it's pretty much up to the individual wheteher they have a good time or not. As for cheaper accommodation, we'll you won't find it in this part of the city. But I guess if you're going to head to the tourist ghetto so you can experience a preconceived idea of what Thailand is, with all the things you like about home at your door, in a very un-thai like area, you might find cheaper accommodation. Then again, if cheap and like home is what you're looking for, why come to Thailand? I guess this also when I should add something about paying attention to ratings by novice nomads being pretty much just the blind leading the blind.
