Moved to Sea Cono after a horrible experience at nearby Apsara Recidence (word of advice, do not stay there).
The rooms at Sea Cono are pleasant with a nice modern decor, big noce beds and a more than decent bathroom. All rooms also have a computer with camera for Skype and a television (lots of good channels but poor signal in the room i got), i believe many will appreciate this. There were also bathrobes, large towels for the pool, in room safe and a nice minibar with nice prices. Had no problem with wifi, worked all the time but a little slow at short period if times (since all rooms gave Internet i guess many use it).
I choose a room towards the back to avoid noise. The drawback is that there is absolutely no view and no balcony. You can also choose a room toward the road with a nice view and a balcony, however as it face a busy road some noise have to be expected.
My only problem with this hotel were very loud israeli guests (seemed they had arrived in arge groups) who would knock on doors and yell in the gangway continously from 3 am until 6 am. I can not fault the hotel for this, but it was annoying.
The waitress in the restaurant is golden, extremely friendly with good service. The guy in the reception and the cleaning staff were also very nice and good at their job. A girl at the reception need to calm down a bit even when guests are unreasonable. She entered into a very loud argument with a group of israelis. I do understand her frustration as the group were unreasonable, but she began to be very loud herself telling the group to basically leave. Doesnt look good for all the other guests waiting to check in.
I paid 2300 baht for high season. A bit much maybe but i needed a room fast after moving from another place on short notice. Had i made a reservation earlier i would probably been able to save a few baht.
In the category "budget hotel" this is however a great hotel. I would not hesitate to stay here sgain a the room were nice, the pool were great and overall the staff were very good. Location were also very good.
