I stayed at the hotel for 2 weeks in March 2012 and was not disappointed. The price was very reasonable and it is in a great location. I stayed in the newer part of the hotel. The room was clean when we first arrived and cleaned by housekeeping everyday. There were a few ants in the bathroom, but it's Thailand, so that did not bother us. I found the bed to be comfortable. The room has air conditioning. During the middle of our stay, the toilet stopped working...we told the front desk staff in the morning and when we got back in the evening, it was fixed. Our room faced the Muay Thai boxing ring...it got loud on a few occasions, which was annoying...I would suggest that you ask for a room away from the boxing. The breakfast buffet wasn't too bad, but after a week I got sick of it. It contains bread (with butter and jam), hot dogs that I think were supposed to be sausages,potatoes, eggs, rice or pad thai, vegetables and fruit. The pool was nice and the food at the restaurant is great. The bar makes banana smoothies which are really good. At night, they have a singer who is really good. The hotel has a spa on location...the thai massages were great!! I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The location is amazing. Right outside of the hotel is a bicycle bar...you have to sit at the bar at least once during your stay. A few steps away from the hotel you will find bank machines, a 7-11, pharmacy, and spas. The Sunday night market is starts right across from the hotel. The temples are a few steps away. One thing I didn't like about the hotel was that there was no safe in the room. There was a travel desk in the hotel which can help you plan excursions...we didn't use them so I can't comment.
