Reviewed March 24, 2010

I have tried this hotel even though so many bad reviews on this hotel. Let me share my experience with other travelers who wish to stay here. The location is undoubtedly good, nearby to Bangla Road, Jungceylon Departmental Store and beach. Just across the corner, you will find good and inexpensive dim sum (exit from hotel, turn right then left to the dim sum shop).
I have a smooth check-in on 20.03.10 even as early as 9:00am for 4 family rooms. Hotel staff on our check in were great, they are helpful and polite. We were put at 4th floor facing the pubs and bars downstairs but surprisingly not as noisy as been described by other travelers. Probably we were too tired after the long and hectic outdoor activities.
Rooms are huge and clean. However, lighting in the room is too dim and the unsatisfactory part is the bathroom, too small and drainage system is not good. But considering the price we paid, the room is good. Breakfast not so good, suggest eat out of hotel. Outside shops served hot, authentic Thailand and inexpensive food.
Tour staff at ground floor of hotel is friendly and helpful. She helped to book for our island tour, which is fun and enjoyable one.
Our bad experience with the hotel was on our check-out. Receptionist (female) was not helpful and accused that we have consumed their minibar whiskey and insisted for payment of Baht180. It's not so much about the money but we didn't drink or consume anything from their minibar. We bought our own drinks because the hotel didn't provide any complimentary drinking water at all. We have an argument with her as the room guests are non-alcoholic and we don't consume hard liquor. Unhappily she agreed not to charge us for that. We have booked our hotel online and paid 10% deposit for this hotel through WideDiscovery but were not informed that we have to pay balance of payment plus 2% for payment using credit card to the hotel. Very disappointing.
Overall we are quite happy with the hotel except for few incidents that I think the hotel should improve.
1) Toilet and lighting improvement
2) Staff service quality should improve
3) Room Service quality (it takes them half an hour to bring in new towels) so we sent our used one to change for new at front desk)
4) Payment by credit card charge 2% should be waived
