Overall the hotel was alright - but for Patong, it was very much overpriced for what it is.
I booked a standard room for 5 nights, and it looked nothing at all like the photos - possibly these are all photos of the "deluxe rooms".
The standard room had some very old dingy furniture in it, and an old CRT TV for which the remote didn't work (not that it matters if you don't speak Thai, because I think there were only about 2-3 English channels available). The sheets on the bed were nice and clean though, and changed daily.
The cleaning staff (daily) came into the room even if you switch the sign to do not disturb. (They knock first, then wait a minute and let themselves in regardless of the sign.) On the first day I pointed out to them that the sign said do not disturb, but they continued to let themselves in every day anyway. That said - ALL the staff was very friendly and smiling all the time.
The pool is small but nice, and breakfast was good. The lobby is nice, and matches the photos, as does the restaurant.
I ordered airport pickup and drop-off, but I think they would have forgotten about the drop off if I hadn't reminded them the day before.
It was an alright hotel, but compared to what you can get nearby (20 minute walk to the shopping center, 25 to the beach, and 25 or so to Bangla), I feel that the standard room should be about half the cost that it was.
