Comfortable and clean
Janur Guesthouse really doesn’t look much from the road, but hidden behind an unpretentious streetfront restaurant, sits a sweet and friendly family-run guesthouse with a small swimming pool.
Two small fan-cooled rooms and two slightly larger air-con rooms overlook the deep blue pool and tiny courtyard garden. The neat simple rooms are spick-and-span — everything is orderly, comfortable and well cared for. Simply furnished with a mix of modern and antique wooden furniture, the tiled rooms are bright, clean and welcoming with comfortable beds and white spotless linens. They could however, do with some bedside lamps. Local paintings pretty up the neutral palette. Scrubbed till they’re fresh and bright, ensuite bathrooms with hot-water showers and a tiny washbasin don’t offer any flat surfaces or hooks, but a bamboo ladder serves as a towel rack. Shady verandas are furnished with a couple of wooden chairs and once you’re done logging into the free WiFi, from here you could almost step into the inviting pool.
Janur Guesthouse occupies an excellent location — far enough away from the hustle and bustle to be quiet yet close enough for a night out, and if you’re lazy, you don’t have to venture far — their restaurant can whip up a tasty meal. We loved the fresh and friendly feeling at Janur Guesthouse, perfect for a little time out. Recommended.
