The Dusit Princess presents a slick appearance, which hides a mediocre operation.
The room on the 2nd floor was spacious, as was the bathroom - but there were stains on the carpet. When we looked out the window, we were looking onto a roof (I know someone has to - but it was littered with cigarette stubs - most places in Thailand do not allow smoking indoors, even in your own room!) When I complained, they sent a maid & handyman - who just shrugged when shown the butts outside the tall window (which did open!)
The light in the spacious bathroom was brighter than any other place we stayed - though still not good enough for perefct makeup/shaving!
When we went to breakfast while waiting for our early room, we ordered a la carte. It turns out that beverage refills are free, even on my husband's latte!
We went to dinner in The Chinese restaurant. The language barrier made it very difficult to understand the 5 different styles of "Peking Duck" that were on the menu. The manager tried her best and was very attentive (of course we were the only ones there).
I asked the desk for a 1:30am wake-up-call - the gal made a note. The call came at 2am!! (Fortunately I had noted this problem in reviews of several hotals in Thailand, and was using it as a back-up alarm, having set our own travel alarm). When commenting on it, the man merely said "Sorry, Madame" and hung up.
Also be aware, if you want an early check-in (we had taken the night train from Chiang Mai) - if it is available, they will charge you 1/2 the rack rate! (This seems to be pretty typical - as well as for a late check-out!)
It was pretty handy for a quick trip to the airport for our 6am flight home, but I wouldn't stay here again except for a last night stay!
Tip: If you turn left out of the hotel and cross the street (heavy traffic, no light), there is a shopping mall - huge - four floors. Lots of places to eat - including McDonalds and a Starbucks.
