Roll back the gate and you encounter a relaxed, friendly, individual oasis with good food, excellent staff and spacious rooms.
The hotel has its own individual appeal and character. Careful thought has been given to its unique décor and design. The excellent, spotless pool area with its bar and individual cabanas encourages a friendly and relaxing atmosphere.
The room was clean, spacious, comfortable and tastefully furnished. The bathroom was large, modern and well appointed.
The hotel is in the city centre and but requires a short tuk tuk (always available) ride to get to any of the tourist areas including the riverfront.
All the staff were friendly, courteous and always willing to help including in arranging my 4am airport pick up.
The menu offers both western and local food at a reasonable price. All the food I tried, including fish amok, beef lok lak and the breakfast was good and the service was quick and efficient.
There is building work going off but it appears the majority of the heavy work has now been completed and the noise was minimal and did not disturb.
Overall an excellent hotel with its own characterand high standards, which some multinational hotel chains could learn from. I would have no hesitation at stopping here again
