We, six of us, stayed 3 nights at Kool from 9-12 April. It was a nice stay, and the hotel offered a lot of support in getting our trip well arranged in just one stop. We had a two-day van rental with an English-speaking driver (Basic Rate US$30 / day) provided by Kool and made our temple tour quite comfortably. The rooms are new, spacious, clean and nicely-decorated... the beds are so good and we all slept so well here.
Frankly speaking, annoying insects were around and sometimes inside the rooms too, but it may be too picky and quit unrealistic to completely avoid them in tropical countries... being disturbed by them was assumed to be part of our itinerary ;-))
The owner, Dara, is a very hospitable, sincere and customer-oriented person... though not all of his staff are smart at responding to customer needs ;-p but they are definitely polite. He keeps on giving his staff training and support in the hope that they can work independently someday in the future. Dara thinks a lot for his customers, making things easy for us!!!
A small pool was newly built two weeks ago at the back of the hotel building. Unfortunately, we did not bring any swimwear for we haven't expected it... maybe wait until next time ;-) Expansion projects will still be carried out in Kool for Dara wants to please customers by adding more value to the money they spent.
We enjoyed our stay very much!!! Will absolutely recommend this hotel to travellers seeking a reasonably-priced room with good standards, locating away from the haste and hustle of the city centre but just 5 minutes by Tuk-tuk to reach there. Hope we will be back one day!!!
