Loved the hotel in general, rooms were nice, service
up to Bangkok par.
But I have a problem with their pricing approach.
They quote rates on their website in US Dollars. But
then they convert their prices to Baht and bill you in
Baht, converted at a inflated rate (their website says
they use a 39+ Baht/Dollar conversion rate, and the
real market rate is 33Baht/Dollar). So if you expected
to pay $200, or 6600 Bht, they convert the $200 debt to
7800 Bht, charge you that amount, and then you get
charged $240 on your credit card.
So if their quoted website rate is correct, they basically
charge a hidden 20% premium above their quoted Dollar
rates; if they quote $200/night, you will end up paying
$240/night when you get the bill, which can be an
unpleasant surprise. And you won't figure this out until
check out, or even later.
If someone quotes a rate of $200 on their website, then
that's what you ought to pay, in my humble opinion. Or
they ought to quote prices in Baht.
