We found this hotel online and got a good rate. Location was perfect and it was walking distance to Pub Street, the river and the night markets. There was some confusion on arrival as the confirmation stated complimentary airport transfers which never materialised. After waiting at the airport for 20 minutes and trying to call the hotel (and failing) we got a cab for US$7. On check in the hotel stated that they no longer offered these transfers - no big deal, it just would have been helpful for them to have updated their confirmation.
Our room was on the 4th floor and the lifts only go to the 3rd. The porter took our cases so it wasn't a drama and we had a lovely view of the huge pool from our balcony. The hotel offers free wifi which was great except it kept dropping out.
We only ate breakfast at the hotel which was a buffet and average as far as buffets go.
There is a building site next door which I gather is going to be a boutique hotel attached to the existing resort. If you fancy a couple of quiet days lazing by the pool after you've done the temples, you may want to find somewhere else to stay as the noise from the site starts around 8am and goes all all day in full view of the pool. That said, once your iPod is in or you're into a good book you begin to ignore the noise and the pool bar staff make fantastic cocktails.
Service was generally of a high standard too. Overall the hotel could do with a bit of a facelift but for the money, it's pretty good.
