Having been a frequent traveller to Thailand over the last 8 years I can honestly say that this hotel has been the dirtiest and most dissapointing place I have had the disspleasure of staying in. The rooms are filthy and to make matters worse the smell was unbearable. We had paid a 50% deposit prior to our arrival and dispite our complaints it was apparent that the owner was not willing to part with any money. We had booked for 5 nights and left after 2. The antique air-con unit gave up on the second night causing the T.V to short circuit and the floor to flood.
I can only assume that the owner has thrown his life savings into leasing this property and has no funds left to make much needed improvements, but this is still no excuse for the lack of cleanliness in the rooms. If the standards are not to be improved the tariff should be changed in accordance (They would have to pay me to stay). It is a great shame to see the potential of this small hotel going to waste. Anyone who has rated this hotel 5/5 for cleanliness must have very low standards or be related to the owner. I don't make a habit of complaining but I hope reading this will make Dieter see the error of his ways.
