Two of us stayed at this place one Friday night at the beginning of January 2013 and were extremely disappointed. To start, there was nobody at Reception to check us in when we arrived, so the poor guards had to help us out and show us to our room. After travelling for ten hours by bus, all we wanted to do was to have a shower and go to bed. However, first of all the room did not look anywhere as beautiful as advertised in the guest house’s website. More irritatingly, the towels in the room were damp, leading us to have doubts as to whether they were clean or not, and there was loud club music till past 2 am, which we obviously did not appreciate, as we were told that it would be over by midnight.
We got the impression that the managers / owners seem to be more concerned about running the restaurant / bar, which is open to people not staying at the guest house and gets really busy on a Friday night, rather than running the guest house. Personally, I don’t think the two are compatible, and should be in different locations so that guests who want to, can sleep in peace and quiet, without being disturbed by loud music.
On the plus side, the guards, restaurant / bar staff and management (when they finally surfaced the next morning when we were checking out) were friendly and helpful. I really just don’t think the place is worth the $70 (US) we paid for a double room with ensuite bathroom. I don’t even think it’s worth the $65 we were originally quoted when we booked a month in advanced. (Also more than slightly annoyed that they increased the price).
