This is a lovely hotel with the rooms situated around a central courtyard. They have a bus, which weekdays will take you at 7 PM to the night market (you're responsible for getting yourself back). The Sunday Market is 2 blocks away and many Wats are within walking distance. The room we had (311) was spacious with dark wood accents, a large round tub big enough for two, a walk-in shower with good water pressure and flat-screen tv and free wifi. Other reviewers have referenced the beds and the one we had was hard but we slept well.
The area around the hotel has plenty of massage parlors, laundry services, tour operators and money exchanges. I felt it was a oriented a bit more towards backpackers than some other areas but I enjoyed the bustle and the feel. The hotel was definitely "serene" compared to the bustle outside. Oh yes, and an absolutely beautiful pool on the second floor. Great place to take a dip and get cooled off.
