As soon as i arrived here the scene and feeling of this hotel, i could put it in one word: SCARY. We arrived here approx 5.30pm and as soon as we got dropped off by our airport transfer service i had this feeling this hotel was dodgy.
We (3 of us) stayed here for a total of 4 nights and by the first few hrs i was ready to find another hotel ASAP. It was just soooooooo deady quiet and u hardly heard a voice from other ppl that stayed there. The hotel rooms or bungalows if u wanna call them are situated next to trees which attract soooo many mosquitoes. Its impossible to open the doors for fresh air cos they will eat u alive!
Reception was the worst. There was only one reception attendant (a male) who was hardly there. We could always hear him upstairs (u could see his room from reception) sleeping or watching TV. When we asked for an extra pillow case he just left it on reception desk thinking we would come and get it ourselves. I hardly ever complain of hotels im just a go-with-the-flow person but this place was the worst! The ENTIRE place needs an upgrade from 50yrs ago it seems. The location of the hotel is toooooo far from main Chaweng and there is nothing to do in Lamai except perve on the caucasian guys across the street practising Muay Thai boxing. To get to Chaweng, call for a motorbike taxi its so much faster and quicker and fun!
I must say the restaurant right next opposite the uphill laneway on main road do really good meals and health shakes! They also run the Muay Thai clothing store and excellent laundry service (only 60B per kilo!!). So pass on the hotel breakfast as it will make u feel so sick (milk left out in the heat and just toast on offer) and go to this place for all ur meals! Very convenient!
Overall this hotel was a bad experience and i dont know how ppl pay t stay here its disgusting. I couldnt wait to leave this place and go back to Bangkok!
