I used trip advisor to select a hotel that was convenient, reasonably priced (booked through Agoda) and clean. I settled on Colonnade and it completely exceeded my expectations. I had what seemed like a brand-new room (room 608, very quiet) and it was close to everything: beach, pier, night market, and restaurants/bars were no more than 10 minutes walk in any direction. The mini-vans to/from Bangkok stop less than 100 meters away.
The staff, though not proficient in English, were helpful and responsive in every instance, especially my housekeeper (6th floor) and the room engineer. When I thought I had a problem with my air conditioner, the engineer was in my room within two minutes to solve the problem.
The breakfast, in my opinion, was the only drawback. You are given coupons to redeem at Tom and Tom's coffee shop around the corner, but on the two days I stayed, I was served a cold breakfast. I got the impression that patrons from the hotel were treated differently from those that were not redeeming coupons. Perhaps it was just bad coincidence.
I will return to Colonnade and have already recommended it to a friend.More
