Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in march.Very nice rooms as its still brand new. Nice design and comfortable size. The first room i was given was a corner room which has an extra window. But little thought was given to the kind of blinds they use, its yellow and light comes thru in the morning which make it impossible to sleep! I had to improvise by covering it up with towels. But light still comes in.
The bathroom were of a very comfortable size. But the water pressure when you shower is a joke! Its so light that it hardly makes a sound when you shower. And you got to wait quite awhile for the water to get warm. Showering was a real chore.
The last two days i stayed there was raining so had to stay in. The T.V channels were really not up to par if you speak english. Most channels were in thai and no movie channels to speak of. Quite a few english news channels,but this is not a business hotel so i dont think you need that many. Some movie channels were dubbed in thai. Some the reception was so bad you cant see anything.
The hotel offers free Wi-Fi which is great. But you will have to log-in every few minutes if you dont use it! I hope the management can fix this. Its really irritating to constantly have to type in password and id up to 30 times a day. I think its a simple problem that can be solved. I go to restaurants and cafes in patong for dinner and their wi-fi is better!
On the plus, most of the staff there were really pleasant and service was quite good! Breakfast was not grand but enough for a small hotel. They bother to change up some dishes from day to day which was appreciated.
I really think this hotel has potential to be the best in its class if they can just sort out the few cons and continue to pay attention to details(which is the mark of all great hotels).I hope the management can take time to address the issues. Given the few rants, i would still recommend this hotel if you looking for a place at this price in patong cuz they are still so new.
