Sokdee Residence as a premise is quite good. The rooms are decent, clean and its centrally located on a nice humble and quite street.
What so bad about it is the people managing it. Service is poor, no smiles and warmth, and it seems that as if you're at their mercy once you checked in. And its also apparent from the way they maintain the premises. Several items are in need of a good repair. In our case it was the shower door, the broken shower floor, cabinet door etc etc.
We had 5 nights in LP but only stayed 2 nights after they banged on our doors (not a polite knock mind you but a serious banging at 9am in the morning) just to confirm whether we would want to extend our stay. Naturally, that's a sign of their poor service and poorly trained staff, so we left and easily found better guesthouse elsewhere.
We paid US$50 per night ... and they don't even provide free hot water and tea/coffee making facility like most guesthouse do.
