Location was perfect. Rooms were simple but we didnt much since we were always gone. The owners were very nice. They can help you with anything you might need. laundry, Tour info, Taxi etc. I will use them again on my next trip. Very fast WIFI also.

My Girlfiend and I stayed at Kavil GH for 2 nights in February 2017, but asked to stay longer as we loved it so much. Even though they are upgrading the hotel with new windows and beds and mattresses in every room, we did not mind, as we felt so comfortable there. Because Kavil GH was full, and I can...

Well located in a quiet-ish side street near the Sunday market, everything is close by. Cooking schools, 7-11, massage, restaurants. The beds were band new and comfortable. The in-person rate is cheaper than online. There was a musty bathroom smell when ever the windows weren't open and the screen windows couldn't be locked, so I was happy to have a...

We booked this hotel based on the glowing reviews, but we're wondering about them because our experience did not match the other reviews at all. We also talked to another couple staying at the same time, and they were shocked at the difference between the reviews and the reality. We paid almost 1000baht a night (through Bookings), which is more...

It's a small old building guesthouse, but everything is in order and organized. The location is very good close to everywhere and a lot of options for food. The owner said they will remold the house to make the house more homy in the future, hope to see them soon.

Thank you - clean sheets - price for a fan room: 750 TB with booking, cheaper when you're walk in 590 TB The Bad: -There is no room service at all:...

This guest was a problem for us. She booked for one day only, and then kept staying without telling us. She ended up staying for 4 days. She left each day, without telling reception that she wanted to extend her stay. The hotel was full because it is very popular, and we actually wanted her to leave. What I don't...

Owners of hotel very helpful with our three day stay. Nooch and her husband provided excellent advice on tours. Location in old town was great with lots of places to eat,shop or go for a massage. Room was basic and beds a little hard. Staff was good and they have a decent menu for breakfast. Location is right next to...

Thanks for your comments. Some people like a firm bed. But yes we plan to purchase some more beds. Please tell us next time you come, so we can give you the softer mattress. Nooch and Roger

I can definitely recommend this hotel. We stayed here a total of 6 nights (with some nights in between because of a 2-day jungle tour we did). The location is very central, so you can walk basically everywhere. Rooms are clean but simple and have very small bathrooms. The owners just started here 2 months ago and are still learning...

Stayed here one week with my family. Guesthouse is centrally located but still quiet as it's set back from the main street. The rooms are basic but clean and had perfect size for the four of us (kids slept together in an extra bed). Breakfast area is beautiful as well and has room for kids to play. Staff is awesomely...
