Situated right in the center of all the main attractions and close to shopping, eats and drinks. Close means walking and seeing the fabulous stores in the area. Of course, they will get you a taxi if that's what you want.
Extremely friendly staff. Extremely. They know how vital customer service is to their business.
A/C good...not the best, but good, and I'm damn picky.
Bathroom clean, blowdryer, good water pressure in the shower and not hot to cold issues.
Pool on the roof, is clean and cool and has an incredible view. Bar/food service is reasonably fast up there too.
TV is flat screen on the wall.
Breakfast is more than adequate for the price of this boutique, if not more than.
Shuttle to and from hotel. Might call in advance to reserve a ride.
Book straight through the hotel. Secure, and Terry, the director of sales and marketing, will make sure your stay is everything you need.
Has a real grass putting green.
Elevators are smallish, but there are two. One on each side of the guest desk.
One short block from the main day market which is hot, but fabulous. After the day market closes, there is a street market just outside.
Had a foot massage and the price was great. You're in a secluded, dimly lit, cool room, in comfortable chairs with soothing music playing. Book ahead, but you can almost get an immediate appointment - one hour or more. Also body massages are available.
Pho soup restaurant right next door, but not air conditioned.
Has the "key-in-the-receptical feature that turns the electricity off in your room while you're gone. Problem is, your A/C goes off too, so you come back to a hot room after a long day of sight seeing. It cools off relatively quickly, but its not like coming in to a nice cool room.
Lobby A little dated, but, hotel is modern overall.
No shower stall and the water runs down the wall, under the tub to a drain. No mold at this time, but in the future, it's going to be a problem.
Commode is right behind the door. I mean, the door opens up and your knees arerightthere. I'm just sayin'...but the flush is good; no problems there.
Our room had a window, thus street noise. Not a game changer, but consider a no window room because both streets are busy until 1am-ish.
Pool is small, but, geeze, it's on the roof of a boutique hotel.
Hot in the lobby and halls, even though air conditioned, but I think that's just Asia in general. Note to Asia: AIR CONDITIONING IS VERY IMPORTANT TO WESTERNERS.
This is a fine hotel for the the better budget public who is particular, but reasonable. If you want to and expect perfect, this isn't for you. But if you're upper middle class or reasonable, but rich, this is more than adequate and we travel A LOT.
We loved it and found it through the truthful trip advisor posts, not the disgruntled patrons who expect "all that" for nothing.
