Have stayed here before prior to the renovations and loved it. This time around was not as good though.
A few things bothered me: The air conditioning in the room wasn't working (to be fair I did not bring this to their attention until I checked out). They charged me 100 Baht per day for the WiFi (who still charges for internet these days?). I had booked the room with a double bed configuration however, to my surprise, the room we were given had two single beds (seemed very strange since this hotel no longer caters for children!). When we asked for the bedding configuration to be changed, we were told we would have to wait until tomorrow - not sure why as all they did was push the mattress' together and change the sheets. Also, the corridor to the rooms was SOOO slippery, it was like an ice skating rink! I nearly slipped over about 50 times just walking carefully to my room - very dangerous.
The other frustrating thing is if you want anything done, it takes FOREVER. Want a WiFi password? Be prepared to wait 15 min's while they shuffle paperwork, fill out forms, walk from room to room.... this is fairly typical of Thailand in general though.
Overall though, this is still a very nice hotel in a great location. It just needs to be managed better. They had only re-opened two days before we arrived.
