    Great Place to stay especially with a family.

    Great place to stay right in the middle of the city. Located on top of shop shops, the Lazy Elephant is walking distance to Gaya Street, restaurants, cafes and the waterfront. We found The Lazy Elephant difficult to find but eventually the owners met us in front. There was no sign. It is more like renting an apartment in the city. The rooms were new, very clean, spacious and had a mini kitchen. The internet was excellent. There is no restaurant but this did not matter as there are many great cafes and coffee shops all around the guesthouse. We will definitely stay here again. The only issue was that we could not get the TV picture to work, or we did'nt know how to work it. It was not an issue.
