I checked into Charles Hotel because I'd heard it was all right.
I was really disappointed that the cleaning ladies came in and started conversing loudly. Another woman came in and woke me up, saying that there might be some confusion about whether or the girls who left previously accidentally paid for my stay as well.
When I got up, I asked, "I thought check out was at 11:30?" To which the woman said that I could stay until 11:30 if I wasn't feeling well. I felt fine, I just wanted to enjoy the air-conditioned room until check out time since my bus wasn't leaving until 5:30pm.
I got up to sort out my bill. I was told earlier that I could pay with credit card, but when I tried, the two men at the front desk looked at my card and said simply, "No." So I went and got another woman, who said that I WAS able to pay with a card.
But the worst part was their laundry service. DO NOT USE THEIR LAUNDRY SERVICE. Not only is it overpriced, but most of my clothes were still dirty when I got them back. And they downright ruined one of my shirts. It came back with two holes (one extremely large) and a huge stain down the side. If I had to guess, it would be that it must have fallen off of their clothesline and was somehow destroyed on the ground. Rather than say anything to me, they folded it and put it in the bag like nothing had happened. I am now all the way in Bangkok and can do nothing about my destroyed shirt. While I was there, something similar happened to the socks of another girl.
Overall, I was extremely disappointed. I wish I'd gone with other recommendations for Lily Guesthouse.
