My overall score for tbhis hotel is a record breaking: 9 out of a maximum of 10. It is excellent in every way.
Conveniently close to the airport (just about 30 minutes) and about 10 minutes to the centre.
Major chain 5 star hotel. Built 2 years ago after the previous hotel was burnt down my rioters because it was owned by a Thai businessman. Large and impressive foyer and dining area.
My room was on the executive floor. The room costs were about £134 per night (including breakfast, internet and access to the Executive lounge). Large and fresh feel to it. Huge basket of fruits provided including a whole melon! The bathroom had a large bath and separate shower unit. Good amenities (toothbrush and paste provided).
Good gym well looked after by staff. All the machines needed.
Very good quality both in executive lounge and in the main breakfast are on ther ground floor.
Lunch buffet 9
The cost is about £25 for what is an excellent lunch buffet. Fresh fruit and juice. Good quality hot dishes and impressive desserts. The meal is finished off with top quality coffee.
Room Service 9
Dinner: Soup and Spaghetti Bolognaise was perfectly good meal and served with bread.
Service quality 9
Excellent staff service quality.
Hotel car/ Taxi 10
The concierge will arrange for either a motorbike or TukTuk or car, whatever you want at sensible rates. Hotel car to the airport costs 35US$. None of the problems you get in Indian hotels if you want cheap transport.
Value for money 9
It is sensible to stay on the executive floor as it is worth the extra money. You get wonderful views over the Mekng river. Excellent afternoon tea, and then evening snacks. So you do not need to pay for dinner. At an overall cost of around £134 per night it is excellent value.
Well done to all the staff.
