As with many other reviewers, we recently stayed at the Royal Ping as part of a cycling tour with Spice Roads (excellent tour by the way). As the hotel was part of a cycling tour, our expectations were lowered and the hotel provided the basics. The rooms were relatively clean and were generous in size. The bathrooms weren't of the variety that you would want to spend an extended amoung of time in but they were serviceable and had plenty of hot water.
If travelling here as part of a cycling tour, it is helpful that the hotel offers relatively decent massages (thai massages at 150B/hour) and the hotel has a decently stocked gift shop (that also sells snacks such as soft drinks, beer, chips, etc.).
While the hotel certainly isn't a destination hotel that would one go out of their way to visit, it is adequate for its intended purpose provided that your expectations are set accordingly.
