can't really expect a whole lot can you from a budget hotel ? We came with that in mind. I even bought my own soap as the soap they provided was so small it slipped off of my hands too quickly.
The morning receptionist is a money grabber. You should not ask her for a tour as she would insist that you take on her husband to drive you around for THB1500 and that was just for the car and her unknowledgable husband driver who got lost several times while driving us around and not that good knowledge of English. Then you have to pay all the entries to all the parks. We were stupid enough to let her talked us to go with her husband. We found out that if you were just to take a city tour it would have been much cheaper.
However, the afternoon receptionist, Jane, is a gem !! she's kind, professional and know what she's talking about.
The hotel as it is is comfortable. Air conditioner works find, shower is great (like I said bring your own soap/shampoo). Bed is comfortable.
The wifi, if you were on 3rd floor, you're at your own merci.. It's awful... got cut off more than you share ... In the lobby, the best wifi connection, believe it or not IS in the public rest room! haha.. YES, you read it right... !!
Anyway, for a budget hotel it is adequate... Just do your homework before trusting some of the employees there.. I found that the kitchen staff ARE great, Jane (the night receptionist is wonderful) and the rest , don't bother dealing with them...
Oh ... don't forget to bring eye mask, as the curtain is too thin and the sun shines early and bright...
