We stayed in one night on our way from Pai to Phuket. We called at the last minute and booked the last room they had. The room itself was depressing. Terrible dark, old furniture and furnishings just suitable enough for one nights stay. It was only $40/night. We were pretty down and out on the hotel until we saw the pool and gardens. Located right on the river, the hotel has a lovely garden/pool/terrace/cafe area with lovely river views. The hotel does have rooms that overlook the river. If we were staying here again we would book one of the river view rooms. The woman working at the front desk is wonderful! As soon as we checked in she asked us about wake up calls and ask us what time we needed a taxi the next morning. She also helped us book an unforgettable dinner at Le Coq d'Or. Not just a dinner but an amazing experience and a must do if you don't mind spending $100+ a person for dinner and wine. Check out the owners wine collection at the River View! Amazing! Overall, the hotel is great for the price. But make sure to book a river view room.
