The place is quaint, but the rooms are very small. There's also a strange sewer like smell in the bathrooms. The decor is nice and breakfast really good. Unfortunately the place is located on a busy road, although very close to the Sunday night market and other tourist attractions. One of my family members had a medical emergency when we stayed here and the staff went above and beyond to provide support.

Just a night there is sufficient for us. We were put up in this "box-accommodation" when the nearby guesthouse which we were enjoying for 2 nights could not extend our stay due to full house. It was not their fault, rather our short noticed to them.

Anyway, we were given a room which had only a tiny window hidden next to the closet. Just like sleeping in a container with any window or skylight. The room is cramped. The single bed is on castors and it moves whenever you lean on the headboard. Actually, there is any headboard at the bed. It is actually the naked wall. Unpainted! The bathroom was okay until you turned on the ventilator. Mysteriously, the bad smell of sewerage permeated the whole bathroom.

Only very basic bathroom accessories are provided for guests. Just that you may like to know.

For 130 baht, you may buy a America breakfast in-house. No Thai food was on offered. We took a short walk out and found some lovely Thai breakfast. It was good food. We think we made a good choice because were happy.

One plus point for the guesthouse ~ it is nicely painted on the outside and located just by the main road, i.e. Rachamanka Road. Tuk-tuk drivers will not miss it. The nice and spacious reception area probably give the place a presentable face. Overall, we would give it 3/5 based on our personal experiences.

We stayed at this place after having viewed the photos on trip advisor and as well as having read all the nice posts below. This hotel is situated in the old city and it's around the corner to the Sunday night market. We got to our room, it has a small window facing the back dark alley. The room had a super musty smell and the bathroom felt slimey and dirty. Saw a huge wolf spider in the shower... The shower was also cold. We couldn't sleep because the ac was so loud and it was making such an odd noise, like a clicking sound every 30 seconds. How can you sleep to that??? For the price of the hotel, we expected more. It was a total let down. We immediately left for another hotel as soon as we woke up.

. Stayed here for three nights get help and warm service. At breakfast-was given extra fruit, other people do not get it. Also assisted when we wanted to go to one place. Explained how to get there and even helped get transport so as not to be deceived. That service is given. Hopefully for guests, all of them.

When renovation works are complete, I have bo doubt that this place will again merit the rave reviews but at present there are a few issues.

My room...at 1400 baht was nice on first impressions but on closer inspection, flaws appeared. It had clearly been very recently revamped to the extent that there were bits of chipping, dust and plasterwork on the bathroom floor and I trod on a sharp bit of plastic on the concrete bedroom floor. There was lavatory paper in the loo bowl on arrival.

At this price shampoo in the bathroom would have been nice, however cheap.


The garden was a work in progress and noisy construction work was underway during the afternoon.

On the upside, the staff are delightful and eager to help. Breakfast was good.

In a month or two, all will be well.
