I was intending to stay for 2 nights, and ended staying for 2 weeks! Marco Polo is the most comfortable, cleanest, and friendliest place I have stayed in. Not only it's a convenient to the bus stops, restaurants and shops, but the staff and the people I met certainly made my stay worthwhile.
They provide a good breakfast - Georgette would wake up early mornings to whip up various treats, as well as good servings of local fresh fruits. She's also lovely to have chats with and showed me wonderful local places to eat at. Sam on the other hand, always had stories to tell and was informative. There was also Druv, their savvy assistant who always made sure we're all having a good time and showed us the best places to go out in town.
Marco Polo also has a really nice balcony where you can spend hours chatting, playing games, having a laugh... or just sitting down listening to the surrounding wind chimes. It's a very peaceful place. I would highly recommend to stay at this place :)
