After staying at the Marriot on our previous visit I was a little dissapointed initially however after a day or two I now prefer this hotel as it is a lot quieter and not so many of the stereotypical guests and their local visitors than the Marriot.
I wouldn't recommend this Hotel for people who go to a foreign country and plan on hangning out by the pool the every day but it is perfect for our requirements i.e. temporary stay whilst looking for permanent rental accommodation.
One previous reviewer mentioned the dirty and dark alley. I agree this walk can be a little daunting however if you turn right as you exit the hotel there is a shopping arcade which also houses Villa Market an international suppermarket 100m down the road which is relatively well lit and provides direct access to 2nd Road.
Another comment was with respect to the air-con built into the window. The A/C in our room was built in properly above the entry door and is fine fine aside from the thermostat not working properly i.e. not switching off but the unit can be switched off/on easily at the controller.
There was some construction noise a couple of days which was a little annoying if by the pool but nothing that couldn't be blocked out by a few tunes on my iPod.
The kidney-shaped pool is quite large and although I am no Michael Phelps is more than big enough for relaxing or even a few laps lengthwise.
Bathroom is a standard size and actually a bit bigger then most hotels I have been in.
All in all the hotel was perfectly fine for our purposes and an ok rate at around 2000 THB per night including breakfast and unlimited wireless internet.
