“Very underwhelming, based on other reviews”
I don’t want to write a review and sound like a sourpuss, because usually I’m pretty easy going, but after staying at this hotel in July with my partner, I finally got aroudn to writing one, and I was very disappointed. To be fair, I believe the main issue was our room in particular (number 411), which was absolutely tiny. It was so small, we didnt even have room to open our suitcases on the floor and has to do so on the bed (which was two single mattresses pushed together). The windows and walls were paper thin, so we could hear conversations that were being had on the balcony and in the next room. The shower had no door, or shower curtain and the pressure was either a trickle, or a power hose, so without the shower door, the entire bathroom basically became a shower. I understand that plumbing is not the best in Thailand, so not all places allow you to flush toilet paper down the toilet, but a lid for the bin would have been nice.
The staff were very nice, and I in no way had a problem with any of them, as they did everything they could to help us. The other thing we had a problem with (which the staff could do nothing about) was the amount of cats around the place…literally hundreds. Was a bit unnerving to walk out in the morning with sixteen cats staring at you. But then, its Thailand, some of these things can be expected.
In conclusion, staff were nice, breakfast was average, location was good, but pretty much everything to do with the room was terrible. Again, I think it was our room in particular, as I asked the people in the room next to us (who’s room was about 2 meters wider) if they were also in the superior room, and they said they were, so I think we may have gotten unlucky in getting the bad room.
