When I stay in 5* hotels in south-east Asia I usually expect a 4* room with a 3* service. Here I got a 2* room with a 2* service
We thought we'd book a little luxury before moving down the coast - it was laughable.
I'd much rather have stayed in a hostel.
The website shows a lovely, grand building sitting on the river front. We got there and it turns out it's not on the river front as there's a crazily-busy, 8 lane, main road separating it - good luck crossing it by the way.
For a relatively expensive price we paid there were no windows in the room, the staff weren't particularly helpful and the breakfast was lousy. If you want luxury stay elsewhere, if you want cheap stay elsewhere - it's noisy and horrible.
Free toiletries, large room and the tourism/trip planner attached to the hotel were good things.
Thank God we only stayed one night.
