What we say: 3.5 stars

Set back from the end of the backpacker strip, Chantana is the one guesthouse on the strip that doesn't feel like it belongs there. That might be a good thing -- there are no noisy bars or pushy tour service desks to speak of here, just a relaxed and quiet two-storey guesthouse surrounded by small gardens and trees. Downstairs rooms are clean, simply furnished and reasonably sized, with comfy beds and ensuite hot water bathrooms. Note that rooms in the middle of the building have windows onto the corridor so ask for rooms along the sides of the building if that bothers you. Upstairs is a quirky but comfortable "living room" area that feels like the library of an eldery Thai military general, and an inviting outdoor terrace attached to that. Off the "library" aretwo additional air-con rooms with soft double beds, wooden floors and walls, the same general feel as the "library" itself and shared bathroom facilities right outside the doors of each room. A rather timid but efficient staff hardly speak a word of English, but they appear to get by just fine -- just don't expect directions to anywhere that can't be immediately pointed to.
