    Efficient service; good location, near to night market.

    Room decoration quite dark and dingy. We paid extra for room on higher floor and view was great but not sure it was worth extra money. Very busy large hotel full of big tour group parties which made breakfast buffet a scrimmage and sound proofing of rooms not good.

  • Couple

    There was not much we liked about the hotel. We checked in late and the first thing we did after breakfast was checking out.

    It's a large hotel which was probably the greatest in the beginning of the 1980s. Since then nothing seems to have changed. Everything feel very dated. Staff was plain rude when checking in.

  • Couple

    Large room.

    The hotel is located far from the city centre but close to the Night Bazar. No safety deposit box in the room. Limited breakfast selection. Non-heated swimming pool.

    Exellent location, attentive and very helpfull staff, great breakfeasts, clean and good standing hotel. Exellent value for the money.

    Fairly well situated. Hotel staff helpful

    Over priced and not especially comfortable or luxurious - does not merit 4 star grading. I was given a small, pokey room even though I had booked a deluxe one (this was changed after I asked). Hotel v full with usa conference participants. Pictures of hotel on internet deceptive eg the pool is very shallow, not like the picture and you can't swim in the shallow end. The hotel advertises itself as a "quiet" place but my room overlooked a school which was very noisy.

    Pick up service from airport was great and we checked in early due to our flight which was no problem. Breakfast buffet was good and restaurant food was great and well priced. Staff was nice and helpful. Massage place near hotel was awesome . we went everyday. Great location to shopping and markets ..away from hustle bustle but close enough...will definatley stay here again ..beautiful maid put gorgeous orchids in my room that i had commented on and chocolates and flowers on our bed at night !

    We had booked non smoking room and they said they were all booked and put us in a smoking room which i complained about ..the halls had a smoky musky smell. older style hotel but nice .

    Well planned spacious bedroom. Location was good for restaurants, massage and tuk-tuks. Hotel was major transit camp but was well managed by delightful staff. Breakfasts were really good, plenty of choice

    Single pool was far too small for size of hotel. Food and beverages were expensive and quoted on menus net of a 10% service charge and 7% VAT. Final bills were much more than anticipated !

    Very good hôtel, staff very friendly. Not far from down town. Rooms very nice and very clean. Breakfast lot of choice.

  • Group of friends

    I had an upgrade to a big room on the 15th floor with excellent view. Kind staff. I rented a bicycle 'cause it was a 20 min. Walk to the centrum.

    The bathtub was leaking and the pillows were too high/big. I got a smaller one which was equally 'high'. Further no complaints!

  • Older travelers

    Short walk to night market, a bit farther to old town. Tuk-Tuk ride is worth it, the truck type songthew is only 20 baht. Tour desk is quite good. Breakfast buffet is really good, if you get there early (it can run out of many choices). Very helpful staff, gave us a new room because of bad wifi, but it didn't really help much anyway.

    No safe in the room, but the one behind reception is good (like a safety deposit box). Internet was poor in the room, signal so weak it would always disconnect. The price of drinks at the pool bar was very expensive.

  • Couple
    6.6

    close to the night market restaurants and tour agencies, clean rooms , good wifi

    big breakfest lots of choices for non Kosher people, at lobby you can use hotels internet and computers in additional cost,

  • Older travelers

    Breakfast especially good, staff especially good, everything except pool.

    Swimming pool a bit disappointing
