We stayed one night here before moving on. The vibe was good and the breakfast was self serve toast and tea as well as cooked eggs. The pool was lovely, with shady areas around it. Some more comfortable loungers would have been welcome. The staff have good English. The rooms really let the place down. They were dirty and run... More

The rooms are okay, bathrooms very dirty - bring flip flops for showering! The garden with pool is very nice, also very friendly staff! Didn't tried the breakfast (because of special diet) but it looks okay, you can choose from 3 dishes. Located very close to the city center. I would come back!

The rooms are very dated although clean, the bathroom really needs updating. The reception area and restaurant are ok, the breakfast had very limited choice. The staff were only ok. The hotel is very cheap and you get what you pay for. I wouldn't stay here again though.

The staff were so friendly and understanding. The room was disgusting, VERY SCARY, marks on beds and walls, very run down, there was a weird room that had a half mannequin body inside. We walked up to our room looked around, went down stairs and cancelled our booking.

Cheap and cheerful hotel with a good location, only a 2 minute walk away from the night market. Great breakfast which is free. The wifi is decent even though this isn't advertised. Sam was very helpful during our stay. Would recommend to anyone.

Room was fine, towels were nice :) There was a lovely pool area though it was too cold to use it when we were there. Perfect location in the centre of town and really good breakfast with toast, jam and a choice of eggs bacon or sausages, served till 10am. We paid 700baht per night

Good value for money but the rooms are grotty. The staff are really pleasant, and the pool and downstairs area gives a good impression. But the rooms are grubby with terrible furniture, lighting and appointments. It would be easy to fix this place up with a bit of attention

We had a three night stay here while in CM - my family are definitely basic travellers and we prefer to spend money doing tours, seeing sights etc rather than on hotels. We've stayed at a number of cheap places in SE Asia. This was one of 'those'. When we arrived the staff were smiling & happy but offered no... More
