Booked for 2 nights to try the hotel out before subsequently extending for 8 more nights.
Location isn't terrible like some of the reviews would have you believe. There is a free shuttle to 2nd road otherwise motorbike taxis were always available just across the road for 10 or so baht. When using taxi to return not once did I have an issue with the driver not knowing the area. Simply ask them to take you to Hollywood, Amari nova (or one of the larger more well known buildings close by) if they don't know the exact building and you won't have an issue.
Room always cleaned to a high standard and staff polite.
Never tried the restaurant so can't comment on that
Areas to improve:
Avoid a few of the rooms on the top floor - I think it's 701 or something but could be mistaken with the room number as was a whole ago now. These are built next to the water pump (as per reception) so you get an annoying noise every few minutes in the room. Once I flagged this with reception they happily moved me though.
Not enough light prevention - if you like to sleep during the day there is a requirement to strategically place some bath towels at the base of the door as lots of sunlight will enter the room.
Both the areas to improve are very personal as I am a very light sleeper so may not be applicable to everyone to be fair.
Overall fantastic value to be had and a great stay. Intend on booking there again soon which says it all!
