We stayed here for a couple of nights in March 2014 and the hotel is quite aged. You enter a reception full of gold to the point where it's tacky. The processes that the hotel staff have in order are also old fashioned, still using pen and paper. Our hotel key was literally a key with a bell tied onto it!
We were on the top level but right next to the fire exit, which is just bad luck unfortunately. However, when you enter the room, you are welcomed with some old fashioned touches such as detail gone into the bed sheets and the towels in the bathroom (there was one rolled into a cat!)
Outside the hotel, there are shops nearby including a 7/11 around the corner. Across the road, there are the PatPong night markets....or the Ping Pong shows. We didn't go into any, but my partner was approached by 20 men within 5 minutes to get him to go into a shower.
The buffet breakfast is extensive and good quality. They surely have catered for guests from all over the world. However, once again, the restaurant looks quite dated.
We were charged with $20 Wifi which didn't end up working. We spoke to reception about this and they didn't seem fussed to help us out. When we finalised the bill, we refused to pay for this which they reluctantly removed from our bill.
Some of the staff are helpful, but most of them were rude to guests.
I don't think that I will be staying here again. We only stayed here this time because we booked this through Flight Centre, but we definitely won't be considering this hotel on our next visit.
