We decided to book 3 nights at Tavee and we received the room number 2, which was lovely, perfectly clean (it is one of the strongest points of Tavee: everything is perfectly clean) and new. The bathroom is perfect, hot and cold water, you receive clean towels and soap, everything is proper. The price was ok, 700 baths for one night, breakfast not included. The street is very quiet, no noisy as in Kao san road for example, the food was really great and cheap, so don t hesitate to eat at their restaurant, for the breakfast the portions are huge! you are 200 meters from a bus stop and from the river, with a boat stop. we took a lot of taxis, so cheap and easier to get to a skytrain station and join the center of the town.
the weaknesses now: the walls are like paper, very thin so we heard voices, steps in the first floor, and the noises in the kitchen next to the room. We used ear plugs and it was fine. the worst thing of this guest house was the staff: we arrived and were received so coldly, the woman at the reception is so unpleasant! she never smiles and make you feel like you disturb her all the time. the rest of the staff was ok, no smiling at all but it was ok, but this woman... ouch. the only person who was really nice was the man who stays at the reception at night. He does not speak english, but what a smile he does to you!
all in all, I recommend strongly this place for the quality of the rooms, the cleanliness and the good food, but don t expect anything pleasant from the staff.
