We booked this place because it was the only place we could find inside the actual fort and the minimum booking was for 5 nights which in hindsight was a bit long for us, 3 days would have been plenty to explore the old town - which is absolutely gorgeous and full of fabulous shops! But the most disappointing part was the extortionate price US$160 a night!! When we arrived & were shown around, I thought it worth no more than $50/night. On top of that, the air con was ineffective so we sweltered thru all 5 nights (& being from Australia we are no strangers to hot weather!) and the bathroom tho clean was dark & dingy. The toilet ran too unless you fiddled with the button. The staff and owners were very welcoming (but very keen to sell you some jewellery from their shop!) & happy to provide mozzie spray & coils when I was eaten alive at night, & the roof-top tortoise a gorgeous & interesting addition to the lovely garden. Breakfast was also good.
