After spending three months in Southern Thailand spending most of time in cheap guesthouses, this was the best way to end the holiday. According to the other reviews I chose this place plus the room rates were ok. Everything I read was pretty much correct. The location of Arcadia is absolutely fantastic for shopping and sights. There are ok fast food joints close by and also the hotels own restaurant isn't that bad either - the surroundings and peaceful yard with pool makes it great place to eat.
I am usually very bad sleeper. Any distraction and I will be up all night. Once I arrived to my room and noticed that there's a highway ramp with heavy traffic more or less 20 meters from my bedroom window I was terrified. BUT - yes here's the big big but - the sound isolation in the bedroom was absolutely amazing and I couldn't hear a thing from outside and really slept like a baby first time in months.
Interior of the rooms were very modern and nice. Bathroom big and really loved the shower. The lighting of the rooms were designed to have lots of indirect luminance which creates nice sensation of high luxury. Huge plus was having TV in bedroom and also in living room.
Breakfast. Well, lots of other people in Tripadvisor have complained it to be too simple. I would say less is more and suited very well with Asian and Western breakfast. Cheese would have been great, but I was satisfied with Asian breakfast.
Room cleaning. Well, that is one minor issue and unfortunately costing the perfect score. I stayed 3 nights and on the first day my room was cleaned and organized as it should be, but on the second day towels were just tossed here and there, there were stains etc and it gave me bit of poor feeling about how well some cleaner do their job after all.
Spa services. Although hotel doesn't advertise it out in the open they still have call service for massage which was absolute amazing experience - I had 2 hour massage in my room: Thai and foot massage leaving me very very relaxed. Only if I had known this on the first evening I would have had it right when I arrived.
Checkout was fast and I got taxi waiting for me to the airport.
Overall - I am very satisfied and I definitely will come back to Arcadia on my next stopover or vacation in Bangkok.
