We stayed here for one night on the way to Koh Lanta. Nothing else in the Lonely Planet appealed so we went for this. I left thinking that it was oerpriced.
I think it is trying too hard. As noted in other reviews, it is very stylish. The lobby/bar area is all muted creams, chandeliers, white grand piano, low benches. It looks like something out of a magazine. It's a really nice bar but maybe better in Bangkok. It was empty the night we stayed, perhaps because drinks are pretty pricey.
The hotel had only 3 rooms full that night. Our room was 'shabby chic', more on the side of the shabby. The bathroom was pretty cool but the windows didn't close which wasn;t great from the point of view of air con or mosquitos. We asked to move to a room with a window which closed. Rather than offer us an equivalent room or an upgrade, as is usual practice if a room is faulty, they offered us a box room with no window at all which we found rude. It made them seem very greedy and just after our money. We didn't want to complain as we had booked our ferry ticket and transfer to the ferry with them, and didnt want to risk any problems with that.
Breakfast was lovely. Our transfer was quite late. Do not book your tickets through the hotel, you can do it much more cheaply with one of the local travel agents.
