Having stayed here in the past i knew what I was getting. Centrally located. Generally good all round. Rooms are clean, beds and linen comfy, basically all you need for the price. There is a very nice pool which we knew the kids would love however. ... Something has clearly been neglected regarding the chemical levels in the pool. Having... More

I chose this place based on recommendations however I was pretty disappointed. I thought that staff (not all) were very rude, they got incredibly defensive really quickly when a guest might ask them a question when it wasn't necessary, therefore I didn't feel they were approachable. I also felt my room was very dated. Be careful when washing items, ensure... More

I arrived by afternoon train from Bangkok at 17:30. I was glad the booking (booking.com) was received, because it was fully booked(week-end). The staff is very kind and the swimmingpool was a delight after 3 hours in the rambling train. I had room B17, (1000baht). Perfect big room with a private shower, toilet, fridge, tv, airo, safe and king size... More
