Bright Lotus 1 Guest House

Very good value

What we say: 3.5 stars

A great location, spotless if unvarnished rooms, and a busy restaurant downstairs are in the attractions for Bright Lotus. The rooms have air-con, TV, private bathrooms with hot water, and a narrow shared veranda that curves around the building. The mattresses were quite spongey, so this is not the spot if this is an issue for you. Here, you’re within a short dive of the riverside, FCC, the National Museum, Royal Palace, and with a little extra legwork, stylish Street 240. Across the street is Lucky Pho and a few doors down is the popular D's Books chain, selling cheap photocopied versions of popular books. The staff are courteously friendly, with good English proficiency and willingness to help you navigate the city. We've had a couple of reports of them not answering queries by email, so if you're after a reservation, you may need to telephone them. Because of its proximity to so many popular tourist sites, the tuk tuk drivers hanging out on the corner here can appear aggressive, though they are not really. But do make sure to set your price before getting in.
