What a disappointment! We'd heard such promising things about this guesthouse which is located in an ideal spot opposite the temples and round the corner from a bunch of restaurants.
We arrived only to be greeted by a bitter, grumpy owner who made our arrival seem like an imposition. Our room was fine - could have benefited from being re-decorated but hey, this is budget accommodation. I sat on my bed and noticed an ant scurrying on the sheet. I then spotted a whole army of the little critters running around on the bed and nesting under the towel. Not the best greeting to receive upon checking-in. Mr Grumpy Owner merely changed the sheets and couldn't even manage an apology, or offer a room change. A room change wouldn't have made a difference though, as we discovered that the poor Dutch girls in the room next to ours had the same ant invasion on their beds.
Overall, this was ok for what we wanted. I would say it was peaceful but we were woken each night by the howling dogs in the nearby houses. Had the owner of Baan Suan been half decent then we wouldn't have had so much to grumble about. But his sheer lack of friendliness coupled with his laziness (he just sat in front of the TV every day smoking and looked pretty miffed if you approached him to ask a question) really let this place down. So much potential...it just needs a new owner in order to satisfy guests.
