We stayed in The Pier for almost four months.
On the plus side, the place has a very good location close to Chalong Circle and Chalong Pier. The room was tidy, 2 times/week cleaning is included in the price. Shower was ok, warm water enough. They installed safety boxes to the rooms while our stay. There was tv (didn't use that at all), microwave and fridge, all worked just fine. The manager is very helpful and nice, rest of the staff doesn't really speak english.
The internet connection was ok, sometimes it was lost and we just reseted the router that was on the hallway. There was some noise from traffic and dogs barking, but we got used to that and it didn't bother us.
The place was a bit expensive compared to other similar accommodations in the area, and the rent is only by monthly/daily. So if you are staying only 3months and 2week, you'll still pay the whole 4months.(the daily rent is even more expensive)
The worst thing however was the electricity and water bills.
Every month the bill got a little more expensive, even though our usage was the same (we didn't change air con settings or anything).
First month we payed 1400baht.
The next it was 2000.
And the last month was 2900, which was outrageous, especially since we were travelling around and didn't even be there for two weeks! I asked explanation for this and the manager started showing me all these lists and numbers, even the unit meters to convince that he isn't lying or trying to trick us. But still, how is it possible that 2½ weeks use of electricity suddenly costs over twice as much as first months use.. I asked around, and this has happened to others also who stayed in The Pier.
So pay attention to the electricity bills, otherwise the place is just fine.
