I was looking for a good, clean hotel for a family of 4, close to the centre of town and with a swimming pool. Villa Um Theara meet all requirements.
We had a family room with two queen beds. The room was rather basic - just a small shelf, a table and chair and a bar-fridge. The bathroom was a large room with a shower at one end - no curtain or screen, but that seems to be the local style.
Most important is the air conditioner to help with the humidity and warm weather (even in December!).
The swimming pool was delightful in the afternoon after a hot day. The grounds and rooms were very clean.
Breakfast was included in our room rate. It was a choice six dishes - fried eggs, scrambled eggs, sandwich or pancakes, with a side-plate of fruit. It was nice but we were hungry again at lunchtime.
The location is a convenient walk to Pub Street and the Night Market, yet far away enough to avoid the tourist noise and hype. The tuk tuk drivers knew where to find it and an airport pickup was included in the price.
Bottom line: It's not the most fancy hotel in town but you won't go wrongl staying here.More
