Stayed in June for three nights during a quick leisure trip to bangkok.
The positives - right on the Chong Nonsi skytrain which is a godsend. Also within walking distance of the Patpong night markets (lots of fun) and walking distance to Healthlands Spa (excellent, professional massage, health and spa treatments).
The Thai staff at the lodge are friendly and helpful.
The negatives... unfortunately the big negative was that the owner of the hotel was away on holiday and had left some rather crude European and Australian men in charge of the place. Their language (on many occasions) left a lot to be desired and this included the use of swear words and discussing the various problems they have had with Thai boyfriends (and other things which are not suitable to print here).
I felt uncomfortable.
There is no lift in this property and while the staff are happy to carry your luggage for you, it is still a hike in unairconditioned hall ways up and down to your room.
The rooms themselves are very basic, but they do have everything you need in terms of airconditioning, tea/coffee, a safe, hot water and free wi-fi. The beds themselves are large and I slept well.
Breakfast is included in the rate and was cooked to order. It was ok (eggs and toast and coffee). I tried a couple of other plates of food at dinner time and they were very average.
Finally, the hotel seems to have no concept of privacy. Each day I was there the full list of all hotel guests (including first and last names) was left in full view on the front counter.
Unfortunately I would not stay at this place again.
