This hotel is in a good location and prices very reasonable and cheaper then others in the area. There was a really nice younger guy at the desk that showed us the rooms, and gave us a good deal on the 'suite' so we took it for only 1200 baht per night (it's normally 1500 baht so you'll have to bargain a bit). That also included free breakfast, and we were told there was free internet in the room (wi-fi). This same staff member was always very nice and helpful whenever we had questions or needed anything, so we always looked for him when we needed something.
The room itself was fine, it had a nice TV with cable, a shower with hot and cold water, and aside from being a little bit small there were no real problems; at first.
The first thing that went wrong was that the wi-fi signal was very low, so I was only able to connect some of the time and usually had to go down to the lobby to get online. The second problem was that the window in our room that looked out onto the main passageway did not lock, so anyone could have broken into our room by climbing through the window. I didn't discover this tell the last day of my stay though, so wasn't able to tell them about it. Fortunately no one did break in, but if you stay here, be sure to make sure the windows lock!
Another thing is at night, they had entertainment in the form of live bands. If you are trying to sleep and don't want noise, this may not be the best hotel for you.
The final thing that made me think I probably wouldn't stay at this hotel again occurred upon checkout. There were 2 girls behind the front desk. We asked how much a van to the airport would cost. The first girl said it was 120 baht. Then the second girl punched her on the leg and told us it was 180 baht. Then she made a call to someone, and she said it would take 30 minutes for the taxi to arrive. We weren't going to wait 30 minutes. She gave us an angry and annoyed look when we didn't agree to wait 30 minutes for 'her' overpriced taxi to arrive. Needless to say, we ended up going out on the street and took a 'Rot Doo' (red truck) for only 100 baht.
