A taxi driver named Ng recommended this hotel to me. It's lucky he knew where it was because a lot of other taxi drivers couldn't find it. Although the hotel has a fairly drab lobby, the stairway to the dining area reflected the glorious past of this hotel. The food, Thai based was very good. My room included breakfast and a buffet dinner is 180 baht.
Built on grand portions, some of the rooms are extra large. My room measured 8 metres by 6 metres. After I checked in, I had to ask for the manager to fix the air conditioning, the shower tap and the wifi. Yes this hotel is tired and a bit run down but eventually everything got going and it was a quiet and very relaxing place to stay. The views are superb.
It's about one kilometre to the major shopping centre so it a good idea to get the mobile number of a good taxi driver so you can ring. I eventually found a very pleasant motorcycle taxi man who was very obligating. It's about 50 baht to go to Robinson Mall etc.
For me, I would stay again if I needed to chill out and relax indoors for a few days.More
