Pros: nicely decorated and modern room; filling breakfast included (pancakes/fruit/two eggs with bacon plus toast and juice); quiet location.
Cons: location is hard to find, and there are not many dining or sightseeing locations in the immediate vicinity. You either need to cross a makeshift concrete bridge over a smelly canal, or walk through a rather dark canal-side path to get to the hotel. Either way, you are about 25 meters from a road. The elevator is on the second floor, not the ground floor, and does not go to the highest floor, so you may need to carry your bags up the stairs.
We were originally told that two rooms were not available, so they offered a junior room for 4 people. When we arrived, they told us we could not fit into the room they offered. When we pushed back, they checked us in with no further fuss. The bathroom sink was located in the foyer to the room and not in the bath. The room had many spiders.
The hotel is about a 45 minute walk to the Grand Palace. Alternatively, you can walk about 10 minutes to the river and take water ferries, which are very convenient. Overall, this is a reasonably priced choice if you are willing to deal with the location.More
