We wanted to stay in a hotel overlooking the elephant orphanage bathing pools so we took a risk on this hotel against the advice of our travel agent. I chose between 2 hotels from the internet . Well in spite of what it said it was not very friendly for those who have difficulty in negotiating lots of stairs. Our room was fine but we had to negotiate lots of stairs and hidden steps. At one point I almost killed myself as I did not see a step. The dinner was a curry. Drinks selection apart from beer was very limited . For only one night and the bonus of seeing the elephants first thing in the morning it was ok.
