this was THE worst hotel i have ever stayed in (and i have stayed in some pretty questionable places). When we first arrived we thought, hmmm looks okay, nice aesthetic details in the lobby until you REALLY looked. it was as if this hotel was in its prime in the 70s and a bomb fell shortly after and it was never cleaned or updated / kept up since. this place was so dirty - the carpet had stains on it all through the hotel. the room was dusty, there was poop droppings in the drawers, blood stains on the sheets and then the cockroaches came out. HUGE cockroaches the size of my cellphone. we had to call the desk to get help. they sent up a man who hosed our room down with thai bug spray (probably not USDA approved obviously). we ended up plugging all drains ourselves and kept the bug spray by our bed. needless to say we did not sleep well that night. other things to note - the back courtyard again looks like it was abandoned in the 1970s. wooden decks were rotting, the pool was a greenish brown and had leaves in it. there was even a dead cat carcass on one of the tables. the breakfast buffet was very un-hygenic. ants on the buffet table, dirty cups, the creamer was turned. i refused to eat anything after thinking about how many cockroaches were probably crawling all over the kitchen. and this place was also in a sort of shady area - my friend and i left to get a drink after the first cockroach sighting and realized that we were surrounded by hookers at every bar we went to. they were all really nice to us two american gals but it should tell you something. we didn't necessarily feel unsafe as the thai are all very friendly and it was close to the bazaar but who cares?? STAY AWAY FROM THIS [--] and pay extra money for better accommodations!!!
