We stayed in Sawasdee Hotel for 3 nights. What an enjoyable experience! The hotel is on a main strip although you wouldn't know it, so tranquil with its exotic paths, gardens and flowers.Only slight criticism is that it attracts mosquitoes! Nice swimming pool. The staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a shuttle bus to Kata beach every hour, which is convenient. The breakfast had a good variety of dishes available, appealing to all tastes. Well worth a stay.
