There are actually two tower blocks for this hotel, an older one and newer one just across a paved area. We were given a room in the newer tower.
The room was great; clean, nice view of the city, nice big bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle.
On arrival, I presented a booking i had made on the internet via an agent in Thailand that morning. The hotel was unaware of the booking when I turned up 3 or 4 hours afterwards. I assume that it just takes a little time for such bookings to go through. The staff were helpful and followed up on the booking, and eventually confirmed everything was ok, so it wasn't a major issue in the end.
The location is a little way out of the city, so you need a 10 minute taxi ride to get to the city centre. It is about 15 minutes from the high-speed rail station. But the area around the hotel has convenience stores, some restaurants, and there is a mcdonalds nearby (which seemed to have the only ATM I could get to give me money).
There were a couple of nice touches. All the plugs in the room seemed to be the flatpin type, so I could not plug in my laptop. Then my wife discovered in the desk area, there was a flap, behind which were two power sockets with three pin sockets that could take virtually any common type of plug. Best of all, one was 110v and one was 230v. This is something every hotel should have!
There was also a self-serve laundry near the top of the older tower. This had a single washer and separate dryer. It was completely free for guests, and there was even a box of powder provided. We ended up going quite late as it tended to be in use a lot during the day, but again was really useful and something more hotels should think about.
The breakfast was excellent, big buffet with great choice.
