You can't beat the location. Across the street on one side is the lake and on the other side is the Tooth relic Temple. How convenient is that? If you want to be away from things, then, this is not the hotel for you. This is central. It has that old colonial charm...meaning antique pipes so we had no hot water for a couple of days. But the decor and atmosphere and the staff were wonderful. Like a time warp. Another big plus is the free wifi in the lobby. But there is a Cyber cafe a few doors down if you need a computer. The room itself was huge, with tiled bathroom and antique bathtub. Not to worry, the toiled flushed just fine. Everything was tidy and clean...just really old. The breakfast was a huge buffet of both western and SL dishes. Plenty of fruits and beverages. Be adventurous and try the string noodles with coconut topping. Yum! Also, I've never tasted bananas as good as those in SL. Having read some of the negative reviews, the 4 nights at Queen's turned out to be a lot better than I had expected. I would stay here again.
