Myself and my husband stayed here a few nights in March 13'
We arrived late at night after 2flights and a cab ride that took far too long so my tolerance was low! ( I was tired and cranky!!) We were shown to the room quickly, on entering the room there was a terrible stench from the drains in the sink,shower. I was too tired to go back down so we just fell into bed, in the morning the smell was considerable less pungent!
So giving the place the benefit of the doubt,
We headed off to the beaches for the day, we noticed some places in karon,kata, had a similar iffy smell.
Later that night in the room, we noticed the smell came and went pretty frequently. I couldn't stand it in such a tight area so unfortunately we decided to leave a day early.
We did not complain as we suspect there was nothing the staff could do, so we paid the extra night and head on our way. The girls at the reception organised a taxi and were lovely.
While I could see what the were trying to do with the decor, it just didn't work in my opinion.
The toilet idea was funky but it seemed stupid to have to leave one class box to wash your hands in another.especially when both boxes are sharing the one door!! Unhygienic?!!
Leave you inhibitions at the door!!
my room had little to basically no natural light, ( not sure if this is the case with all rooms) but I would prefer to look at interior plaster of my room than the exterior bricks of the building 2inches from my window!
The location was good only 5-10mins from the beautiful kata beach , hotel provided shuttles all day. The area is lovely, lots of cute restaurants,shops, etc..a lot quieter than patong,and possibly more family friendly.
Breakfast was very minimal but I'm not a huge breakfast fan so this doesn't bother me, cereal, croissant,coffee...sorted!
