The ramada Encore. If you see my review about the Radisson (inresidence), these hotels are about the same price. However the Ramada is a 'little' out of the way from the action (15 min walk), so not too bad but down a back street. The bed was nice, and the room was small and cozy, but clean and comfortable.
We were down to our last 2 days in Thailand, and were tired and lazy. I wanted to relax and not go anywhere, so my girlfriend and I just ate at the rooftop bar. We rarely eat at the hotels we stay at, unless it's isolated, or a retreat, and we are happy eating delicious fried chicken, or sausages on the street. I must say, the tapas at the bar, the drinks, and their food/drink specials during happy hour are fantastic!! Full of flavor, from lamb, to meat balls, smoked duck spring rolls. Though it could often be hotter the food is still tasty and a nice change. The hotel should be promoting this more.
The bar surrounds their rooftop pool which I believe was built with the idea of it being a social gathering spot rather than a 'pool'. Bigger than a standard hot tub, and cool water, if you are into swimming then this isn't the pool for you. If you are with a bunch of friends and want to drink and splash water at each other, then maybe.
The next day, we were about to go for lunch (we were hoping for sushi in Bangkok as we were both craving it) and walked through the restaurant on the bottom floor during lunch. It was an all you can eat buffet (i think it was 2 for 200 baht, or something like that), but was colorful and had plenty of options we decided to eat there yet again (twice in a row, unheard of). A large display of ceviche, mussels, shrimp, sushi, pasta bars, soup bar, desserts and salad, very tasty and of high quality, you can't go wrong. I was stuffed.
Overall, a great little hotel and Ramada has really put the emphasis on food, the service was good, had a few mess ups with the language getting the wrong drink, but the server was still great and was fixed immediately. Not being super impressed with the room, but the service, food quickly made up for this! If you want a nice little hotel, then don't pass this up. It beats a lot in the area!
