Everything about the Citin Loft Hotel is accurately described on its own website and the Photo Tour is not slanted in a way to show only the best features. You get exactly what they say. The rooms are opulently but not over furnished. The family room in my opinion is 5* but cost us only £50 a night and thus represented excellent value. Reserving over the internet entitled us to early check-in, free internet access, a complimentary dinner and late check-out. I stayed with my wife, son aged 17 and daughter aged 6. All of of whom thoroughly enjoyed their stay at the Citin Loft and have asked to return. Hopefully there will be a room for us next year but if the word gets around about this Hotel will there be a vacancy?
Our 8 nights stay at the Citin Loft was the Beach holiday part of our 3 week stay in Thailand. My wife is Thai so we spent the first part of the stay visiting family. We traveled down on 29 October from Kamphaengphet some 300 miles from Bangkok by airbus, a journey of 6 hours, arriving in the Northern Bus Station at 03.30. We should then have taken a taxi to catch a bus to Pattaya which is over 100 miles from Bangkok, a journey of about 2 hours. However we were approached by a taxi driver who offered to take us for 1500 Baht ( about £30 ) toll charges included, which we gladly accepted. Consequently we arrived at the Citin Loft at about 06.00 on 30 October, a lot earlier than we had anticipated. We expected to have to wait til 09.00 the early check-in time but no problem, as to our surprise the night desk clerk booked us in and our luggage was conveyed to our suite on the 7th floor. When we entered the suite we were 'gobsmacked' at the opulence, a basic kitchen area; four poster bed in the master bedroom which had an ensuite bathroom; 2 queen sized beds in the second; a large lounge area; 3 large flat screen TV's and DVD players; 2 balconies; to list some of the main features.
The family suites are at rear of the property and we had no issues with noise, even though an extension to the hotel is being built. The extension is clearly visible from the picture of the outside pool which is covered so does not get any direct sunlight. An advantage in my opinion as I burn easily and have a high risk of skin cancer. The skin of the extension is almost completed and so what little noise will come from from the fitting of the windows and internal fitments. As I say I had no issues with noise and our suite was less 10 foot away!
During the whole of our stay the staff were courteous, helpful and accommodating. The suite was kept immaculately clean. The breakfast was buffet style, ample in quantity and variety, and you could order your eggs cooked to your preference. There was a variety of fruit juices, fresh fruit, cornflakes and coco shells for the children, toast, croissants, danish pasties, breads, bacon, ham, sausages; and other foods on a daily rota such as mini pancakes and honey; and saute potatoes; there was also a variety of Thai dishes including rice porridge.
We returned to the UK on 7 November, our flight was at 20.30 from Suvarnabhumi so the late check out enabled us to relax, shower and keep cool until our taxi arrived at 15.30 and we reluctantly had to leave this excellent Hotel. The most memorable hotel we have stayed at in our 19 years of holidaying in Thailand. This statement is based on extensive experience of variety of expensive and budget hotels in Thailand . Last year we stayed at the Mantra Pura another excellent Hotel whose main disadvantage is its location and when my daughter was 1 we had three double rooms at the Siam Bayview.
