Firstly location. Great location for the airport. From the skytrain is a 50 baht taxi ride or a 20 minute walk, but everything you need is within walking distance of the hotel. Supermarket, cinema, shops, restaurants etc. Apart from the cinema however there is little else to do in the evenings unless you are prepared to take a taxi or skytrain ride.
Congratulations to the staff at JL, very friendly and welcoming and will go out of their way to help with any problems. I was having great difficulties booking onward flights and hotels but with JL's vauable help I got the problems sorted out.
My room was great, good size with a large queen or king size bed and was very clean. I had one evening meal in the downstairs restaurant and this was well prepared and good value.
Just a few niggles stops me from giving this hotel a higher rating and they are just minor niggles but I feel I should mention them so that future guests are aware of them before they arrive. Firstly there is no soap in the bathroom, just a very small bottle of shower gel, which for a couple would hardly last a day. Being a traditionalist I do like soap so my first purchase at the 7/11 was a bar of soap. Also the shower is electric and the water pressure is very poor.
Breakfast was adequate although the food was served luke warm at best, cold fried egg is not the choicest of food ! But there was a reasonable selection,
Please be aware that although your booking agent may have taken your credit card details, like mine did; at check out i found that payment had not been made by credit card and I had to pay the bill in cash which meant a speedy trip to the atm.
All in all JL was good value for money, but i have to admit that the shower and location might just make me look for an alternative hotel next time. But thank you JL staff, you were great !
