We''ve been to BKK many times but this is a first for us, staying away from the city area.
It's only about 15mins from the airport and so, you will be very far from town or if you have tour trips going up north, your daily trips/journey will be long.
However, if you don't mind the long journey n fancy modern boutique hotels, you will love n enjoy the charming cottages (howbeit, a tad dated) n garden areas. Very quiet n homely, with free wifi to boot ! (er..if too crowded, n too many people logging in, your wifi connection may drop n takes a while to re-connect)
The kitchen area is decent n in the fridge, you get two bottles of mineral water, two bottles of Coke n another two bottles of Sprite FREE ! And this is a budget hotel ! Those 4/5 star ones require you to PAY for stuff in the minibar ! My kids enjoyed these free cold drinks each n everyday ! heee
Their toilets are very bright, clean n decent too (with hot water, if you must know)
Pool is rather plain, just a (50m ? ) pool with nothing else besides. If you have small children, the pool is only 1.3M across the entire length.
The breakfast is nothing fantastic. Certain days u get a mini buffet n other days you can order ala carte from the small menu.
The Sip N Surf cafe is right at the front of the hotel grounds (entrance n Security Guard Room) and they offer great drinks but as for food, there's only biscuits n bites.
Gotta say tho', the wifi connection at both the restaurant as well as at Sip N Surf are GREAT !
There's a Wash n Dry self service unit for those of you who need to recycle your clothes/laundry. There are 2 washers n 1 Dryer.....coins operated. If you do not have coins, just ask the Security guys (just almost next to this area) and they will gladly help you out.
I must add, most of the staff here don't speak much English but they are most friendly n helpful
As for the surroundings outside of the hotel : Walk out to the main road, turn RIGHT and you will come to a few local Thai eating houses. There one Chinese-Thai Restaurant with great foods !
Further down the road, about (200m ?) across the overhead bridge, there a big Tessco Supermarket. And even further down the road, (1km ?) there are MacDonalds, Pizza n a few other restaurants too.
Lastly, there are two big malls nearby. The one we went to was Secon Square Mall. As you would expect, 6 or 7 levels of shopping n dining, plus a basement full of handphone vendors !
Taxi from the mall back to the hotel cost us 70baht n and a mere 7mins ride.
So there you have it. A nice charming budget hotel with cottages but rather far away from the main BKK city.
As usual, just my sharing and hope this helps ! Have fun deciding.....
