The hotel is well situated in a rather quite area of the town. From outside, the hotel has a certain charm, unfortunately, once entering the lobby one get an overall impression of shabbiness.
This is even more with the small ugly stairs which bring you to the first floor.
The rooms are very spacious and have a small balcony with a view of the riverNam Khan . The dark wooden floor is stained and not very clean. The furniture is also dark and depressing as well as the decoration. The big bed has uncomfortable hard mattresses.
The shower and toilet are small and old. Outside the bathroom, in the room, stands a huge bathtub we never used.
The breakfast was very monotonous (only eggs and jam) and the bread of poor quality.
Overall we felt very disappointed about this hotel that certainly has much more potential to make it a nice charming place.
