Arrived mid afternoon after flight from Luang Prabang and efficent check in and we made our made to our 5th floor room overlooking the courtyard.
Room was well appointed and extremely clean and a nice size. Twin beds, lovely balcony and bathroom that had great water pressure and hot water. No hairdryer but housekeeping brought one immediately when I called the front desk. Nice towels which are always appreciated.
Breakfast served on ground floor and courtyard, nice selection of food but coffee was horrible so I drank tea for three days. Good internet connection for our laptops but did try and use lobby computers one morning instead of heading back to room. Slow and kept dropping out.
In a good location about a five minute walk to the waterfront. If you need a good coffee head to Joma which is about a five minute walk. Dinner one night at The Spirit House which was nice and the following night at Aashifa which is an Indian Halal place right on the riverfront. Absolutely delicious. The third night we ate at the restaurant right next to Joma but can't remember the name. Also very good.
The only thing this place lacks is customer service, staff playing on mobiles, no smiles or welcoming messages and when you drop by reception and ask a question it is done very matter of fact. Shame as I think the hotel has some potential. However in saying that the housekeeper was exceptional and very friendly.
We felt like a swim one hot afternoon so we headed up the street to Setha Residences to use their pool.. On the pricey side but we stayed there for a few hours and the pool is really nice.
Overall a pleasant stay.
