This hotel was a total disappointment and I have nothing good to say about it. It is a shame because when visiting Hua Hin we usually stay at the karoon guesthouse which is opposite and owned by the same man. Knowing that we usually enjoy our stay at karoon we thought that victor guesthouse would be to the same standard and as karoon was full, it be worth a try. We were horribly wrong and glad we only needed the room for sleeping in, although that wasn't even a pleasant experience.
We had booked two standard fan rooms on Agoda which we paid for at the time of booking. When we arrived at the hotel, the lady took us to the two rooms but told us she only had left one room with an en suite bathroom so the other room would have to use the shared bathroom. That was the first let down.
By this time it was gone 10pm so all we really wanted to do was sleep. The beds in both rooms were awful. They were hard as rock and had uncomfortable springs sticking out all over them. This aside, we tried to sleep but the room next door decided it was a good time to watch the hobbit. How did we know it was the hobbit? Because it was loud enough that we could hear every word clearly. Baring in mind that this was a 3 hour film, we didn't sleep very well at all. Mixed with that noise was also the noise of the other guests using the shared bathroom and slamming the doors loudly.
The following day we tried to use the shower in the shared bathroom. The fixture to hold the shower head to the wall was broken which meant you had to hold it or leave it hanging. As well as this, the water which should have been hot was stone cold, even when turned all the way up. The water coming out of the sink tap was hotter! Also in the bathroom, the toilet flush worked only intermittently which meant standing there and pressing it multiple times until it worked.
All in all, this was one of the worst places I have ever stayed. I would not recommend it and I will not stay there again.
