I stayed in this place with my wife and daughter for 10 nights. We had a triple room which was not really spacious for the 3 of us but sufficient. Rooms are very clean and done properly every day.
A/C, fan, WiFi , hot shower working fine. Free internet (PC) in lobby. Food is really tasty altough the menu is rather limited, as are the opening times (closes late afternoon sometimes).
The location is very quiet off Changpuak Rd., this is slightly outside the Old City Area. The centre can be done walking easily (15') but the Night Market is a bit far, so I would recommend a tuk-tuk.
Another advantage for this hotel is the nice, well maintained swimming pool in the beautiful garden. The garden area is nice for breakfast and hanging around for a drink anyway.
Personnel are very friendly, helpful and polite, but.....
The only thing to warn for (as others did before in reviews) is one of the two receptionists. You should recognize her immediately: one is very polite, friendly, helpful and humble, the other has none of these values, specially not upon Farang (non-Thai). The word 'money-grabber' in the other review is very accurate.
The last day of our holidays we had to bring our daughter to the airport in the morning and return afterwards. She charged us 400 THB for that trip, at least double the price as should be. Moreover, she send a 'Songtaew' (a big TukTuk). That morning, rain was pouring and since those cars are only partly waterproof, we were wet all over before we reached the airport. Same story coming back. As a reference: from the airport into town a large, luxury A/C taxi charged us just 120 THB
In the evening we had to go to the airport ourselves and didn't give the receptionist a chance: we arranged the same type of vehecule as she did for 50 THB and gave the honest man a nice tip.
One more remark about her: she charged us 600 THB for the fact that we occupied the room a few hours more than check out time. Altough mentioned in the hotel rules, I didn't consider it as very generous upon people who stayed there for 10 nights, knowing the hotel was not even filled up for the half.
But don't misunderstand the story, this incident was the only minus in our whole stay there, we have many nice moments to remember about this hotel and those THB did not make us unhappy neither poor.
