    Location was good. Breakfast was lovely.

    Wifi didn't work most of the time. VERY noisy outside all night long (room 'Pepper'). The shared bathroom is nice and very clean, however, there is no mosquito net covering the windows but the windows are always open so you get eaten alive in there, AC in room so old and noisy I had to turn it off.

    Beautiful house and decor with great ambiance

    Not possible to pay with card, would be good to be made aware of this during booking, and that one cannot access the place in a vehicle

    The styling was beautiful and to the smallest details. It was such fun to stay in accommodation so different, but equally beautiful, to why I’d stay in at home. The staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant also has lovely options for dinner and the included breakfast was great.

    Rooms were beautiful breakfast was excellent and it was so peaceful.

    Beers were too expensive - a very minor complaint! Every other rooftop bar and even the fancier hotels do beers for 5,000-6,000 so to charge 8,000 just meant you didn't want to have a drink on the otherwise beautiful rooftop because you felt overcharged. The only tiny complaint about the whole place otherwise perfect!

    The guest house is really beautifully decorated and clean. The staff was kind and helpful. The breakfast was good. The staff promptly helped to organize a taxi for the next day. Privacy and personal time were respected. I had the luck to be able to check-in early in the morning when I arrived from the boat.

    Some street noise could be heard closely in the bedroom. Internet only in the lounge area and weak.
