The two-storey house with a classy cream-coloured exterior is indeed lovely, and all five rooms boast high ceilings, hardwood floors with traditional grass mats, classic wood furnishings, dim lighting and comfy beds draped in mosquito nets. WiFi and air-con come standard. Bathrooms are on the small side, though they do have hot water. The more expensive rooms at the front of the building open onto a large shared balcony with woven basket rocking chairs -- perfect for a late afternoon drink. You can't beat Sala Savan's location in the heart of the old town, a short walk from Talaat Yen plaza, the river and a bunch of good restaurants. This is a great spot for those with a little more to spend who want to feel like the French merchants must have many moons ago.
