Trip advisors point system does not always allow to describe the fine details which can make a place become "poor" or "average". In this case, my rating is as in the header. At first, I thought to hammer them for their sloppiness in not providing really clean rooms (including bathrooms). Or for the lousy breakfast, the horrible aircond, the misleading word "suites", the lazy tuk tuk driver... But when I booked I had a choice and so I also blame myself for falling into the trap laid out in the form of trompe l'oeil photos on their web-site and the usual overselling vocabulary. I will not stay at this establishment again MAINLY because of it's location. If this would be a hidden gem, I would not mind the grueling walks from the BTS station after a day of shopping. But then, the mix of quality, price and location make me look for other options which suit me better.
PS: I don't understand how some fellow travellers write "great service" (what service?) and I would be curious to know what it takes to achieve this state of mind.
