Kahon Chan

20 June 2007 Kahon would recommend this property

Liked: It has a dining room and living room at the ground floor where you can meet a lot of people and it was fun, but the kitchen would be sort of insufficient. No lockers for valuables. Internet is only free for half an hour and only a set of PC available. Generally a pleasant experience since I only spent a night.
