I've been coming to this hotel for the past 10 years, this stay being the last. Firstly, we only stayed here because the place up the road was full. The first thing you notice is how quiet the lobby area is, complete with the air -con turned off. The reception staff are miserable and barely give you eye-contact. Now to the rooms. In desperate need of renovations, very worn - out carpets and a very uncomfortable bed. We asked for a baby cot for our baby and received a cot that wouldn't look out of place in a Romanian orphanage. On our second night I came close to not paying the bill as a party took place on the 5th floor, next to the outdoor swimming pool.. The noise was deafining and went on until 11.00 P.M - absolutely no regard for guests. They have a perfectly good floor for this purpose on the 3rd floor. The breakfast is dire too. Finally it is only a few hundred baht cheaper than the place up the road, so for the sake of a few hundred baht look elsewhere. It's a shame as when I first went there in 2001 it was a great hotel but not it is just awful.
