This was our first stay at the hotel.
The rooms facing the river have fantastic views and huge picture windows.
The rooms were large, clean, and comfortable.
The breakfast buffet is large and satisfying if you like an Asian-style breakfast.
The pool is clean and decent sized.
There is a fitness centre now open.
The staff are friendly.
Quality of food at the Chinese restaurant was good.
The rooms have seen better days. The wooden floors are soon ready to be replaced and the bathroom doors are very difficult to shut.
The hallways also have an unpleasant stentch.
The hot water in the shower was lukewarm at best and didn't seem to change with the settings.
If you like a Western breakfast, you will find little here besides greasy eggs, sugar cereal, one type of fruit, and a little bit of bread.
Lots of local kids came to use the pool in the late afternoon so it was anything but peaceful despite the setting.
The exercise equipment in the fitness center looks like it will only last a few months.
The staff don't speak much English.
The hotel is out of town and if you don't have your own transport it would be quite inconvenient.
The food at the hotel is very overpriced.
Overall, the hotel obviously targets big Thai tour groups. Prices for everything in the hotel are in baht. I think we will try someplace else next time but all and all the value for the money isn't too bad. We'd consider returning.
