This place is not alone as a high rise hotel in this tropical valley but they all seem out of place and probably should have been discouraged in favour of something less imposing. The hotel is well run with friendly staff but even in our week long stay we didn't really get to know any staff. It is really on the fringe of town and it is a fair walk to the old town on a hot day.
It is however close to the night markets and not far from our favorite restaurant called Lemongrass which has great food in a downmarket surrounding.
