The breakfast was just ok. The toast and waffle were very dry. Dinner price was insane. Better dine in the city. There are a lot of choices there.
After we had waited there for quite a long time, the guesthouse owner told us that they couldn’t offer us any room before 2 pm. Therefore, we got a room to use the basin for washing our faces and hands. In that room, we saw a rat running from the shower room to bed.
In general, the room is pretty OLD and the location is very bad.
Although the guesthouse is located on the hill, the air is very bad, even in the early morning, you wouldn’t want to open the window as the air is almost poisonous. There is no comfortable road for pedestrian. Very dangerous and uncomfortable to walk there. Inconvenient location!
The TV didn’t work. The mattress is very old and too soft. The most incredible thing was the SUPER WEAK water pressure. It took me almost 45 minutes to finish the shower (usually I only need 10 min. to do it).
The Wifi Signal is not good.
The towels are dark and very old. They didn’t look clean. The shower curtain was quite short so that the floor became totally wet after shower.
No 24 hr front desk. You need to look for someone in house for assistance. There is no front desk.
It is not as nice as described on the website! Be aware!
There are many options of guesthouses and hotels in the city where you get even better air and deal!
