Situated approx. 30-45 mins. from HKT airport. Hotel offers pick up at THB1200, double to normal price, but its trustworthy.
Hotel is situated 2 mins. walk from nightmarket and 3 mins. from Jungceylon, a Thai mall with Western prices. I would definately say that if you dont prefer a beach hotel, this is a good choice.
Rooms are of good size, firm bed, aircon, minibar, coffee&tea, safe, tv with very limited choice and mainly for the majority of chinese and russian guest. Water provided each day. Cleaning. When you get cleaning, its good and mostly they remember to stock your toiletries, toiletpaper etc. There is a small french-balcony, however hotel has a strict non-smoking policy, so if you are a smoker you might want to reconsider.
Unfortunately walls are very thin, you will know what your neighbours are doing, corridors are without carpets and doors quirky and thin- so if you are in for a good nights sleep, you will probably be disapointed. Unfortunately chinese guests are not the most considerate guests, there is a lot of shouting, slamming doors, children running in corridors screaming, and drunk people coming back late at night. Tourgroups arriving late means a lot of noise as well.
Breakfast is good and, off course, mostly caters for the asian pallet- however Europeans are offered bacon and cheese if you ask for it. Restaurant/cafe has a mix of western and asian cuisine, tasty and reasonable priced. Service however is slow and unattentive- the young girls needs more training in service, they seem more interested in chatting behind the bar. Ms Pink was outstanding and knew what she was doing.
The premises are well kept and clean, and staff are definately smiling, helpful and courteus- they will get my 4th star :-) My special thanks to Mr Pok/Bok (sorry for not remembering the correct spelling) for picking me up in the airport, a lovely start of my holiday. less
