Staff were very friendly and helpful. The buildings are comfortable with the furnished balconies, a/c in the rooms and open air restaurant on the river. Our room was spacious compared to other guest houses we visited in Thailand. We ate at least one meal a day here, preferring to eating Thai fare, and the food was consistently very good. I must eat gluten -free and the staff understood enough english to comprehend the gluten issues and prepare safe and tasty food for me. They were very accomodating. We were together able to determine which sauces were safe (did not have wheat/gluten).
We did not book excursions through the guest house, being more of the do-it-yourselfers. Songtaew and Tuk-tuk are usually available at the end of the block, for easy transportation around the city and beyond. You're close enough to walk to the Warorot and Hmong Markets, if you can stand the heat. The Kalare night market is closer, but more junk-kind of like Canal street in NYC.
We would definitely stay here again. The only issue we had was with our housekeeper-a unhappy-looking older woman who was always sitting on the balcony when we returned in the afternoon and didn't always replace our water, washcloths or soap. The front desk always happily gave us what we needed.
