We booked the Thongsal after checking out reviews. Sadly, I was REALLY disappointed as the reviews and the price of the rooms did not match the services and state of the rooms. The standard room we booked was dingy, depressing and messy. The bathroom was not clean- with a broken dustbin and didn't even have a separate shower area. The... More

At the beginning of tourist season (in April), the facilities are not prompt yet. The hotel re-paint and re-built around hotel area. So, I'm very surprise why the hotel can open for the tourist even not complete re-construction. It should be finished before open, The smell from painting and the noise from re-built were very terrible. The poor facilities as... More
