It seems clean, but strong smell inside the room, the bathroom is poor, even without a ventilation fan. Of course without any disposable products. When i get up, itched my body, maybe bitten by insects, too terrible.

The Popular View Guesthouse has everything you need for a most comfortable stay and if you book a balcony room over looking the river with the mountains behind, you have found Paradise. If the Popular View Guesthouse does not have it, there is a motor bike and laundry next door, just come out and turn left and your there, you... More

So you have to take into account this is cheap for the area. It is ankh be a disgustingly disrespectful club that will blast the music as late as it can which is 1:30. Then drunk people yelling at the tuk tuk drivers followed. We had a roach crawl on the bed and then had to do a full room... More

The rooms are nothing special. We book one double with the river view and its ok. The view is stunning but the room nothing special, the bathroom not very nice (but you don't spend much time in the right?) And the rooms don't get cleaned (we only stayed 2 nights though) the other twin room was bad though. The room... More

My friend and I booked this place through booking.com. We were asked to use s credit card, and per usual we thought it was to make sure we showed up. Well, when we did show up, they had already charged all 3 nights, and all I had to do was sign my already charged receipt. Then, the non English speaking... More

To be fair, I looked at rooms in about 5 different guesthouses and bungalows in his area, and found this one to be the lesser of all evils. Reasonable price, and the cleanest bathroom of all I'd seen (speaking relatively). Clean tile floors, solid walls and the cleanest linen I'd seen (although still, this all relative).

I stayed here for two nights and had no issues. they are located in a great area close to the main strip, tubing centre, restaurants and shops. The rooms with a view are well worth it.

We arrived and got shown our room which was pretty dark as it had no sunlight coming through due to window facing a wall! Our toilet was blocked and when I asked they simply passed me the plunger to clear up someone else's mess! Staff were really not helpful and overall I would recommend having a room with a view...

I don't like giving bad reviews and wreck somebodies business, but I have to be honest. Yes, we got the room 'cheap' for US$19 two days before, through agoda.com, but it was not worth it. Our room was outside back at the bottom, facing two water tanks. If we walked further out we could see the river but out of... More
