If you don't have friends, love or other serious reason to stay in Chumpon, A-Te can be the only memorable place there - city looks for me one of the most boring in Thailand (however the province is beautiful around). Nice clean rooms, comfy bed, good bathroom, polite staff. Also beautiful swimming pool with stylish sunbeds - all looks much more expensive that really is! Can say 0 about free breakfast, because as usual we missed it.
Why not excellent for me: just small epizode on check-out:
price on Agoda there much less than on reception (i never could get it here in Asia - hotels pay 15-20%, so why don't to offer at least same rate to the good guys and save that? - but here local stuff stop understanding and speak English - "technical error:).
So, when the next day we decided to stay 1 more night, with Agoda again, hotel manager come and told us that we can't book the room on same check-in day. I said, that
- if we have Agoda confirmation, all is fine, remember yesterday?!
- "it was exception and now we trying to solve it with Agoda!" - was the answer.
- "So, give us a time to check-out then and say good bye to you".
- in 3 min. "I just spoke with the owner and we can do same price for you, so all is cool".
- Ok. give us please twin room now, we will save some cash for drinking.
- Ok. but last night you book single room, and for 2-nd person we have 200 THB extra"
- last night we just booked 2 DBL rooms in Agoda, for 2 persons price was same as for 1 or 1/2 - twin or DBL - check it please - let's be informed how much your hotel costs!
- But in fact it was just 1 of you in each room, so 200 THB more and no breakfast (yes, we missed it, but i always have a hope)...
And for some misterious caprice of destiny here I recalled, that we can just reach the train station and go out from Chumpon. What in fact we did.
