    The staff where friendly and helpful. When it was clear I was unhappy with the room they arranged for me to transfer the following day. There was 1 spacious balcony room overlooking the river which would have been a great option were it available.

    As a female solo traveller I would have preferred to be in a well lit and busier area of town. The first room I was offered was very small and had a window onto the corridor which felt very claustophobic. There was no breakfast or food available as the cafe had closed during the low season. This was a little inconvenient.

    The guest house is quite pretty. There are dark wood floors and the rooms are well maintained. The Riverside is very quiet as far as 'city noises' go; however, you do get to hear frogs, cicadas and even a rooster. For me, all those sounds, even the rooster crowing, were pleasant ...

    (1) The most serious issue was security. I was told that the doors would be locked at 11pm. I got back at 10.05pm to find the front door shut. I tried ringing the door bell 4 times but no one appeared. Finally, I gave the door a good pull (it is the type of door that folds out) and it opened. I then helped myself to my key and went to my room. (2) The staff speak very little English and are very shy. I'm an efl lecturer and have lived and taught in se Asia for 12 years so I'm used to shyness, but this was excessive. (3) The rooms are very small and have 'faux' windows which look out onto the corridor, which has real windows. (4) There were very few cable stations in English. (5) The mattress on the bed was very hard (like most Asian mattresses) and I decided to leave after only 3 nights.

    We had a room with large balcony on the riverside, room was very spacious and clean with good shower. Less then 5 min walk to main street / night market. Manager came to pick us up from the pier and took us back to the airport as extra service. Thanks.

    Breakfast is not included as they have have only outside location for breakfast. No problem though as there are many nice breakfast places within 5 min walking.

    v well ocated in the main river 'loop'. old refurbished wooden villa, nice quiet / relaxed setting. room price was fine.

    there was little communication from the staff, not sure if its just a language problem. the young guy on the desk seems unable to speak at all! the feeling i got is guests have to take the lead asking questions. and to point out problems. no guest services to speak of, i inquired about laundry / bicycle etc but you can get these much cheaper up the street. their town map was laughable. despite a nice location & building, i felt the room was a bit shabby and v dark! there was the odd problem with water and shower but was fixed quickly. i wasn't expecting great service but its an ok place it you just want the room, sort other stuff for yourself!

    Very helpful and friendly on reception, cleam room with daily service, great strength of internet wifi, good location.

    No natural daylight in room, very small room although adequate for couple of days, very limited breakfast (not included in price).

    Close to the main street, nice terrace on the opposite side of the road.

    Only the 2 front first floor rooms have a view of the river, the other rooms are quite dark. The plumbing is not brilliant for ground floor rooms, the loo was blocked on arrival and although they tried to fix it they never succeeded in the 3 nights we were there. Negotiated a reduction in the room charge on checkout.

    Location is very convenient, right in the middle of the town and handy to restaurant, river, etc. It was surprisingly quiet at night, in the room facing the river.

    The first room offered had a horrible mouldy smell and we asked to be moved, which they agreed without question. The second room was much better but still marginal. This is a basic hotel, staff don't speak English so don't expect much service and advice. Shop around, there could be better places in town.

    The location is fantastic, in the World Heritage area, on a quiet beautiful tree-lined street, across from the river Khan. Can't be faulted. Much less expensive - one third price at least - of other hotels in the area. Lovely hardwood floors in rooms, bathroom adequate, shower okay - certainly have had worse. Girls on desk want to get it right, they seem to be doing much of it for the first time.

    I was there 9 nights as my Thailand trip was just aborted. The first 4 nights in a room with no outside windows - only onto a corridor - so the air con was the only source of air. I not surprisingly got a respiratory infection. Room next door vacant and had 3 windows so a joy to have air and natural light. Rooms 2 and 3 not advisable, others good. Silly things - bin not emptied after 3 days, soap not provided 2 days, laundry returned not folded or pressed and crushed/stuffed back into laundry bag. Had a gentle little talk with manager who was very grateful and would review with the staff.
