my friend and i just arrived in thailand for a 3 week journey. upon arriving at the Rongratana (take a picture of a map or something, the airport taxi drivers really have no idea where is it) we were greeted by friendly staff.
we booked this place on the net, during a half price sale on booking.com... great value. we each got a deluxe room each, at 2000 baht a night. my friend got a free upgrade to a one bedroom deluxe. we stayed here on the 16/17th april, good time to do it, didnt see another person here so everything felt like it was just for us.
every one is very friendly, and sign language and basic english will get you through.
the one down side i had of the place is it took them 10 minutes to get me an emergency roll of toilet paper, for which they profusley aplogised for the wait. that is the only down side i have.
the included breakfast could of been a bit bigger, but that is easily sorted by the many street vendors within stones throw (eg. sticky rice, breakfast chicken and a nice local fresh juice for 50 baht).
the gym equipment is good, as is the upstairs garden, great for an afternoon beer in the sun.
the pool could use an update, and beyond small bits of tissue, it was quite a nice view down to the local streets.
so many 7/11's in walking distance water and food and cheap beer is never a problem.
within 20 minutes walk, or 3 minutes (20 baht) tuk tuk ride, are the many, massively massive shopping centres. (take redbull, a sense of adventure and a lot of endurance).
all in all the rongratana is a great place to stay. just remember to try the place called the ninth over the other side of the road for a simply AMAZING feed. mmmmmmmmm
