The shower and air-con are great but there are lots of reasons to give this place a miss. I'll list just three...
#1 It stinks: Room 505 at least was heavily perfumed on entry and the reason, I quickly discovered, was to hide the sewage smell in bathroom. The perfume used was little better. Full pre-payment for the room deters escape.
#2 Wifi: At your own risk. Windows 7 users will be provided with a teenage lad to reconfigure laptop setting for obtaining the DNS address. Blue screens and warning messages are abundant thereafter. More worrying is when Google warns of unusual traffic from the network and you need to prove you are human to do any searching. This can be resolved by changing hotels.
#3. Price: You wouldn't need to look far to get considerably better for less than 1000 baht. This place is ambitiously priced. Don't be seduced by the location. A clue to the greed is the amusing price list for stuff in the room - in case it goes missing. The do-not-disturb tassel is 450 baht.
