We spent four nights at Kamala's. It is on the same Soi as the highly-rated Top Garden Boutique and Funky Monkey, just across the moat from the old city. If the other two are full, it's a good stopgap. We stayed longer for the excellent location.
We had an air con room in back with private bath and small safe the first two nights, then moved to a cheaper, noisier room in the front with shared bath for the last two. Both were clean and the bathrooms had huge toilet paper dispensers - a great idea.
There is a fine breakfast at the restaurant in the lobby, sadly not included in the price.
Service is efficient as long as Tania is around. She speaks excellent English, having spent several years in Europe.
The rooms, though tidy, feel a little tacky for the price. That is why we switched to a cheaper room. The wifi, as in many Asian guesthouses, can be problematic.
Overall, Kamala's is OK, but better values are available if you have time to look.
