The building was beautiful and felt like a traditional inn. It’s up on a hill, and secluded from the bustle of the city.

this is the place
The best part of my vacation. Magical quiet and private. Inside of historic park on top of a hill. I love this special place and will come back. The hosts are very helpful. The bath is great. Breakfast is delicious. Very close to walk to temples and shops. I am so happy here, looking into the garden and listening to the birds. Amazing!
