    Bed was very comfortable with excellent linen. Staff were very helpful and booked tours for me to the Li River and the Rice Terraces, both of which I enjoyed a great deal. The common are is huge, with comfortable chairs. All in all a good place to stay.

    Good location but construction occurring downstairs which was a nuisance. We also had to book another room and couldn’t upgrade unfortunately as one of the other travellers was revolting and washed stinking undies in the shared sink.
