One of a kind!
After a little bit of a rough start, but with fast and adequate response from the management, we had a great stay among the magical gardens of Bamboo Guest House. The breakfast was very satisfying. The place can be a bit rough, but its the ambiance that makes it special.

Amazing little hideaway in a beautiful garden. Staff very friendly and helpful. The only things is, absolutely the poorest wifi i have ever experienced anywhere in any guesthouse, you can't connect unless you stand by the reception.
