We stayed with Welcome Sawasdee Inn for only one night before we headed to Ko Tao. The location wasn’t far from where we had to catch our bus so that was very convenient. As for the Inn itself it looked clean for what it was but I wouldn’t want to stay here for more than one night. The area was... More

First of all I would never stay here again because of the hotel's receptionist. He is the absolutely most rude and insolent person that We had met during our travel in the Indochina area. He actually had the nerve to yell at me and my 53 year old friend who, clearly showed him that there had been an error in... More

We booked our stay through STA when we booked our flights from the UK. When we arrived, there were stray cats walking all around reception and the smell of cat wee was awful. The receptionist was extremely unhelpful, and pointed us roughly in the direction of our room. As we walked to the back of the hostel to climb the... More

This hotel was sold to us as part of a package booking including flights. Upon arrival we were shown the double we booked, which was very small. We had to pay the same price again as the original booking (roughly) to upgrade to a good sized double. There was a discrepancy between their lower estimate of what we'd paid originally,... More

Missed some of the earlier reviews. Otherwise we would not have booked this hotel. Rooms have never seen any maintenance. Staff at the reception counter did not seem to like any one coming to stay there. No light in one bath room, water leakage in another room.. .Complaints were not even taken note of!
