Having stayed here for 4 months in 2008 I was looking forward to returning in July 2011, same reception staff who are very friendly and security guard. No complaints with the staff whatsoever. Location is perfect, 5mib walk to soi 7 & 8 and in the heart of soi bukhaou yet still quiet at night. Rooms are now in need of an upgrade, tired looking wallpaper, stained Walls under old air con units, bathrooms mouldy and bed sheets ripped and stained. Cheap at 600baht a night but I preferred Chaba Hut in November 2010 at 1000 a night and only 1min walk from R-Con and has a gorgeous pool

Have stayed here many times, on a monthly basis, great staff and good location, but no pool, no free wifi and was shocked to be given a 4500 bht electric bill on my departure, thought this was high as I had only spent 20 days in the room as I was visiting islands also, I won't be staying here again as I have now found a better place, with a pool, and no rip off electric charges!
So I'd say the place was fine if your staying on a daily basis as the rooms are good value for money at 800bht low season, but forget the monthly rip off basis! Plenty of other places nearby to look at

I have stayed here many times over the last few years. The rooms are big, clean and the bed very comfortable. Location is great for nightlife - near soi 7/8 and songthaew or 5 minute motorbike ride from Walking St. The only downside is the bathroom is a bit small especially compared to the room size. All in though good value.

The r-con used to be a great place and still offers good accommodation in a decent neighborhood . I've stayed at the r-con many times before but on my last visit I was astounded when the electricity charge for the monthly rental was over 5000 baht when it used to be around 1500 baht for the same duration. It's a rip off basically. A scam.

Even worse a bar has opened next to the foyer that pumps out loud music and excited cat calls from the staff sometimes until 4:00 am! If you have a room at the front of the hotel (overlooking the bar) you can forget about having an early night. The weird thing is that the bar will stay open until 5:00 am if there's even a single customer there, so for the price of a beer you can disrupt the sleep of say, 100 people, if you're malicious.

In short the R-con residence is another example of a once great place that has really gone downhill.

My star rating would previously have been 4, but is now 2.
