De Chai may have upsold us a room on our on spec. arrival, (they told us there were no 2100 baht rooms available although they were showing on Agoda), but for £7 it was worth it as we got a lot more space for our money.
The rooms are very well designed. Bathrooms opening into the bedroom seems to be a common feature of Thai hotels, but De Chai had the best design we came across (and that includes the Bangkok Hansar) with the loo discretely tucked away in the corner, never to be seen from the bedroom, and the two sliding doors enabling the bathroom to be disconnected such that a middle of the night light in it would not disturb a sleeper. The bed was large and comfortable, robes and slippers were provided and the aircon nice and quiet.
Breakfast wasn't as varied as other places, but this was low season and I would prefer to see them limit choice a little than waste food. It was more than adequate.
The staff were very obliging, but occasionally seemed a little nervous - something a little more training would fix.
I think it was very good value for money.More
