Can't really comprehend as to how this property got so many good reviews. To summarize the hotel fares somewhere in between below average and average but not at all worth for the money you pay (Evergreen Wing). Absolutely no smiles or welcome at the front desk. The room was okay but furnitures are from last decade. Then they got a weird policy wherin if you were to call in the reception after evening to sort out any code lock issues of the room safe, you will be charged 1000(if I am not wrong) Baht!!!! The gym on the evergreen side was desolated, the treadmill was nonfunctional, other equipments were mostly worn out. Someone asked me to try the gym near the Corona side, the dumbells had cob webs on it and the whole place was just unclean. Gave it a pass!! On the evening of 3rd Jan I had specifically advised the reception to arrange a taxi for the morning. On checking out, the morning front desk staff had no idea about any taxi reservation!!! They couldn't even arrange one, so I had to venture out on the street to hail one down. Less said about the attitude of housekeeping staff the better. Stayed with Galaxy Suites @1195 Baht (no pool or gym) but the hospitality experienced was superb. Would never stay at Areca and wouldn't recommend to anyone unless there is a drastic improvement.
