We stayed here for 5 nights in April 2012......
Basically this is a no frills apartment style hotel in 3 separate buildings but the room was OK and the aircon and shower worked fine,also a balcony which is useful for hanging out any washing you might have.
Breakfast is a served set menu (bacon,eggs,sausage,toast & jam,coffee etc) with no variation and you are probably best passing on this and looking for better options elsewhere.
The staff are friendly but the maid service is erratic which the hotel should look to improve on.
One day our room wasnt cleaned at all and another day I accidentally dropped a couple of coins on the floor.When I bent down to pick them up I noticed that there was plastic and tissues,from a previous occupant,under the bed which,obviously,hadnt been noticed by the maid.
The main draw of this hotel is its location.Aircon buses from Bangkok stop right outside,a couple of minutes walk away,also you can catch the green sangthaew that can take you to places like Kho Takiab beach (6 kilometres away) or Hua Hin Village mall (2 kilometres away)for just 10 baht.
The nightmarket is also just a couple of minutes walk away....also Chatchai and Chatsila markets a couple of minutes or so further on.......they are all worth a browse.Just turn right out of the front of the hotel and you come to the nightmarket.If you want to eat,there are half a dozen excellent eating options here as well.They are all on the left side of the market and,particularily,recommended is the KO Seafood restaurant which does delicious food with drinks not too expensive either.
The Hua Hin beach is a good 10 minutes walk from the hotel but if you take the green sangthaew again and get off just after it has turned right onto the main road at the traffic lights then its just a 3 minutes or so easy stroll to the beach......cost 10 baht again for the sangthaew.
A saamlaw outside the hotel will ask for 100 baht to take you to the beach so,unless its money no object or you are desparate,you are best not to use them.
Overall,we enjoyed Hua Hin and found it to be a very relaxing and friendly resort.
