Fabulous experience staying at the Golden Temple Hotel for two nights.
I Can't really fault anything about my stay here.
I was collected by tuk tuk from the airport for the pleasant ride into town. Upon arriving I was given a seat in their reception area and offered a cool drink and snack while I checked in plus booked me in for my complimentary massage. I'd changed my booking date at the last minute and arrived early in the morning so my room wasn't ready yet (which I expected) but they held my luggage as I was due to meet my guide to go straight out to the temples.
Upon returning in the afternoon my room was ready and I was impressed. A large room with all the modern conveniences (LCD television with satellite channels, large laptop sized safe, air conditioning, fast wifi) with a great balcony looking over the pool area.
I had my own laptop but they also provide computers in the reception area for use. Wifi covers both the rooms and common areas. Was pleasantly surprised to find it faster than what I'd experienced in Thailand.
The included cooked breakfasts were good with a few options available. I also had lunch in their restaurant the second day, the food was very tasty and great value for money.
The location is good only a 10 minute walk into the Old Market area or a $1 tuk tuk ride each way.
All the staff were very friendly, they couldn't do enough for you.
After driving past all the big hotels out of town I'm so glad that I went with the Golden Temple instead. Highly recommended.
