The best thing that Lohas Villa has is the location. Yes, i wouldn't consider this cheap for the quality given. I will tell you why later. Bf and I checked in only to find out that this hotel is a guesthouse. The property is hard to find, with a small sign leading to it. The lobby is at 3rd floor. Luckily it has a elevator. But... Bf and i have to leave this guesthouse without staying in it at all, here's the story.
First, the reception was very kind but do not expect her to speak English. It's ok as bf is fluent in Jap. Then we went up to our room on the 6th floor. It was really small with 100 yen for 2 hours air con?!!! Are you serious? My bf said other reviews said the air con wasn't working even if you put 100 yen into it. My advice? Don't bother with air con.
Second, the wind was blowing really strongly and the poor door was rattling. My bf even thought someone knocked. For a light sleeper like me, this is terrible... Imagine this for the whole night?! The weather was cooling but i was worried about the typhoon warning. Not to mention, the straw looking roof top looked like it was gonna caved in on us.
Finally, I sat on the bed... It felt like the springs were popping out. I have been to guesthouses and budget stays in Japan, indonesia and hongkong. This is one of the worst bed I have ever encountered. It's a creaking and spring popping monster. Overall, it looked dirty and old. I think the receptionist know what we were getting and she apologized for it earlier on.
By then, I can't stand it any further and insisted that my bf should help us check out of this sad place even though i feel sorry for the reception. The plus point? This guesthouse did not take a single cent for late cancellation of the room. We booked via agoda (bf's preference) for this.
The price was about 213 usd for 4 nights and guess what? We booked another Hotel Blion for only an additional 15 usd in total with breakfast included. So don't tell me this is a good place becos this is cheap. I am sure there are other places for around this price. It's only good for the location. Your choice, you have been warned.
