This is one of the best value hotel deals I have experienced. It is in the heart of the city. Whilst it does not have beach views it provides a great breakfast, the service is very good and the rooms are clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: The Evergreen area of the hotel is a little more expensive but it is worth it!

Last stop for 8 nights. Another great location. On Soi Diana, 80 metres to Second Street & 150 metres through to Beach Road. The Hotel has 3 wings, 2 swimming pools, 2 dining/restaurants, clothing, hairdressing shops, a gym and for the nerds FREE WIFI.

Pro's: Everything here is FIRST CLASS.

Con's: We cannot think of anything to complain about. As in every Hotel the Breakfasts are always “same-same”, because it is difficult to offer much in the way of changes. The Hot food here was updated regularly, so it remained Hot. Cold food was sitting on layers of ice. EXCELLENT

If only The Bali Hotels could learn!!!

This is perfect. Mid range in cost, central locale and clean. Staff very friendly.

Ample choice of Bars in and around the Hotel and Shopping Galore EVERYWHERE.


Other Hotels: The Capitol Hotel Kuala Lumpur, Bali Summer Hotel in Kuta, The Centara Duangtawan in Chiang Mai.

This place is in a great location if you want to shop but don't and not be right on the beach front.
It's about 10-15 minutes walk to the beach at a leisurely stroll. If shopping is your passion the this place is not far form all the major shopping malls and has one within 200 pace's of the back door and has factory outlets for Adidas, Puma, Nike, Reebok and a few more no seconds or knock off.

The rooms are in three categories but only one photo type is shown in most cases so be careful.
The Superior rooms are in the old building at the front and are in need of a refurb they are old and worn down but still very clean. They are also a bit small for my taste, the middle building has the Deluxe rooms, again the rooms are bigger than the Superior and the decor is a lot nicer but the balcony is only big enough for one chair and a small table and the Air Con unit will cook you with hot air if you stay out there too long.This building is in the center of the three and so you can choose what pool you will use.
The third building is fairly new and very nice indeed, it's called the Evergreen and this is ware the Super Deluxe rooms are (These rooms are the one's you will see on Agoda and other booking sites) The biggest room's and the best decor from them all and worth every cent you pay.

They have two restaurants here and you can have meals all day and the breakfast in the morning is one of the best I have had in Thailand.
If you feel guilty there is a fitness center and guy on site with up to date equipment and a view of the pool.
The staff are helpful and easy to deal with and they will go out of there way to make your stay a good one.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view room as they have the biggest balcony

This is my time here, and once again it was a great experience. Rooms are spacious, location is nice, just a 10 minute walk to the beach or to the main shopping, breakfast was good and the staff was friendly. We stayed in a deluxe room and had no problem with the wifi, as others suggested. Pool is also worth noting.
