We arrived hot and tired from a long bus trip and were greeted with a big smile and a choice of rooms in this funky crumbling hotel with seven floors and no lift. After settling for a room on the third floor that smelled the freshest, my husband realized his computer bag was nowhere to be seen. We galloped downstairs to see if it was in the lobby. No! The smiling receptionist noticed our distress, and after we explained the problem, she showed my husband the CCTV of the lobby. There we were with bags but no computer. Ergo we had left it in the songthaew from the bus station. She then put in a call to the bus station and managed to get the driver's name and number. Soon my husband was happily reunited with his machine.
So while our room had seen better days, and we would not have been surprised to see the cast of 'Hair' appear in the lobby, with young guitar playing backpackers sitting among the potted palms and by the tiny pool, the service went beyond the call of duty and the beer was ice cold.
