On first impressions the approach to this hotel can be of concern wondering where you are going. However the friendly reception and lovely ambience soon reassures you . We loved it here as able to walk to the lakes where there are several nice restaurants. The first night we made a mistake and went to the local restaurant area - not easy with little English on menus.
We found some nice local tourist shops on the other side of the lake - so explore over the bridge.
Room was comfortable and quiet in spite of overlooking the entrance lobby. Had a nice area for sitting and large bathroom with walk in shower and bath(small). Bed linen was rather strange as didn't fit - was too small
A few minor problems of maintenance - hooks falling off bathroom wall and bedside light switch kept switching itself on.
We needed help with the safe and air conditioning - excellent response to problems. This hotel has a lovely relaxed atmosphere and the staff were all very friendly. Very pleasant lounge area for breakfast and relaxing. Breakfast adequate. Decoration with local culture a feature
A welcome addition to the hotel would be a restaurant facility for snacks/lunch. We thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend for something different.
