The pool area of this hotel was probably the best feature ! The rooms were clean and it was very central but definitely a budget hotel. The Internet worked intermittently, my son was very disappointed!

This hotel is old and does not do regular maintenance. We booked two rooms. Both bathrooms were last tiled perhaps 20 years ago and looks very worn and run down. Bedrooms had had a recent overall with new beds and linen but not furniture. Having said that there was paint pealing off the wall. The passages are either very tiered... More

The room was very nice. The bed and linens were comfortable. The staff was polite and very helpful. It's in a great location. The breakfast was decent. The views from where we ate were very nice. It's hard for me to believe how little I paid for this all.

We have stayed at this hotel several times in past years and nearly always stop for a meal to and from sangkhlaburi. Although the rooms were clean and comfortable there was a smell from the bathroom drains and the edge of the mirror was rusted. The hallway carpets were dirty and worn. I have a habit of checking hotel fire... More

Stayed here with my girlfriend for 2 nights, was probably enough. Not that much to do in surrounding area apart from seeing the bridge, hellfire pass and the erawan waterfalls. Average rooms and OK food.

The hotel is old, rooms are tight, fixtures minimal. Worst experience is with the head chef who flip-flopped on his decisions. We asked for soft boiled eggs, which they did not know how to do and gave us almost raw eggs. We asked the chef to do it our way,he agreed, told his staff to do it the proper way,... More
