Second day was both our rooms, great rooms. Great sitting areas outside the rooms. View from top floor is fantastic but that also means traveling...

I enjoyed my stay at chez allen a lot! It is a bit far from the city but thats exactly what I liked about it. Nice to get away from the city and get nice views from the hilltop. The owners are very helpful, they organized our rikshaw drives and did our laundry

This is the place if you are looking for an amazing hill top view. The room is clean and spacious, comfortable bed and warm blanket provided. The host is a friendly...

Chez Allen is a sweet guesthouse located only minutes away by tuktuk from the center. From the terrace you can enjoy a beautiful view while drinking a Lion Lager. The house is very spacious and the meals cooked by Allen's wife are just delicious. When it gets too cold, the staff lights up a fire in the chimney and all...

Only one person spoke a bit of English. The rest of the staff ran away when approached, perhaps for fear of linguistic embarrassment. The owner speaks English but he was seldom there and the staff had to call him repeatedly to get instructions. I tried calling the hotel a few hours in advance of my arrival to make sure they...
