This is what we would call a "mean" hotel. It is nicely situated overlooking the river but the rooms are too small to put anything down with no shelves and the only place to work on your computer is also too small to rest the computer on. There is nowhere to put your clothes and only 2 hangers in the poky wardrobe. The bed is hard and lumpy and, although we had paid extra for a river view, the bed in that room was so lumpy we asked to change to a twin bedded one where they were nearly as bad and we spent an uncomfortable night. We were never offered a refund for the difference in price. It is also the only hotel in Thailand that we have come across that did not include breakfast in the price. It would provide a basic breakfast, choosing from 5 set menus, but you had to pay extra. No coffee making facilities were provided although they did offer free instant coffee and hot water from a machine (ie warm) for free in the small reception area.
Many of the rooms have a shared bathroom even though this hotel is quite expensive for the area. We didn't find the staff friendly but the receptionist spoke good English.
