This hotel is ok but not if in particular interested in class. Just need to stay a few nights, OK. Also you have Banglamphoo outside and a 7/11. Pleasant folk at reception. This hotel has gone downhill since the last time I was there. You see things that are worn, dirty, maybe not working. Such an odour from the wash... More

First impression was kind of 'wow!' After staying with other budget hotels and guesthouses throughout SE Asia as part of a Geckos Tour, I was feeling quite positive about this one. A porter came out to collect our bags from the bus, the lobby appeared quite nice, there was a tour desk, a transport desk - lots of positive feelings!... More

When entering the lobby, the hotel seems fine. However on arriving at the 4th floor suddenly the decor became shabby & dirty & the room was no different. Dimly lit room with nothing tasteful or cheerful. More like a room in an institution of some sort. No window or but a smoking enclosure overlooking a wall. Shower hopeless with tepid... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Great central location with backpacker district 3 blocks away and close to markets. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Rooftop pool and bar are fun too and recommended after a hot day of sightseeing. Recommended A++++

I spent 3 days on January 7 to January 10, 2014 and 2 more nights on February 10 and 11, 2014. In reading the other reviews I am wondering if we were at the same hotel. I was on the fourth floor, in a deluxe room with breakfast. The room was very large, clean, air con good, fridge, free bottle... More

Stayed here for three nights from New Year, 2014. Hotel was booked as part of a package with Trailfinders and described as a superior room. I know that at times in Asia standards can be less than western, though this was grim. Very old style hotel, no bar, little in the way of reception area and the outside stank. We... More

Stayed one nite at this hotel in January 2014. The hotel room was filthy looking with dirty hand prints on the walls, especially behind the bed, and stains on the bed sheets. The shower would only get luke warm water if it was turned to a drizzle... Anything more and it was ice cold. Very little english by the front... More

Um, it looks nothing like the photos. The bathroom was tiny and looked like it belonged in a jail. There was not even a shower curtain, just open air! False advertising.. it did not have a pool or rooftop garden - this is the sister hotel that is attached to it, which faces the main street. We did not even... More
