Opey de Place Hotel
Ranked #2 of 38 Hotels in Chonburi
Reviewed 14 January 2014

Ok. i previously posted a good review regarding this hotel. but after 9 consecutive trips staying at Opey i'm afraid it's time to move on and find somewhere better. as others have said the rooms really are becoming dated and in need of decoration. the showers hardly work and randomly spray water everywhere. the Tv's are sold old now. it's far too noisy if you enjoy a good lie in in the morning. constant phone ringing when reception need to speak to the room cleaners. And for my last trip at xmas/new year they had the cheek to put up the pirce per room per night to 1300 baht. i've had many good memories of staying here but now it's time to move on.

This place is a tremendous disaster when it comes to professionalism. I have tried to give this place a fair chance, several times, but the always up screw up.

First the place is run down and lacks of decent quality in all amenities; Bad beds, Furniture, bed lining, paint jobs, bath rooms, floor tiles walls etc etc are all in bad shape.

I could live with that if it was not for the fact that they have raised the prices waaay above comparable places near by. And most of all I could live with it if I could get a room.

On several occasions I have not been able to reserve a room or I have made a reservation that is not there when I arrive at the hotel and the place is full and I am left without room or the room that I have booked is already occupied by somebody else.

When trying to book online their so called internet reservation system, that is pretty new, is a joke. The system will show room available and you will make the payment for the room on your credit card but the system will generate a reply that says this is merely a request that will be confirmed within 12 hours by the staff. Needless to say they will never get back to you and you will have to struggle with your bank...

The online system, that does not work for regular room types, does not even formally works when it comes to reserving special room numbers. For this purpose I usually contact directly to the hotels reservation desk. At one point I booked and got a confirmations for my, formally, favorite room. Once I arrived at the front desk and wanted to check in I got the information that somebody was already staying in this room. I thought that this was just a mistake and this guest was to be move to another room since they had a prior booking for the room, well surprise, the front desk staff tild me that he should not move he was staying long time. So I with the initial reservation was allocated another inferior room. During the whole process the reception staff are unreasonably rude and impolite, remember this is Thailand.. No smiles here.. except from me trying to state the obvious.. This was

If you are trying to make a reservation direct to the hotel the reservation the chief receptionist / reservation officer may confirm a room, may tell you to use the we site these days but what may be the result is that you don't have a reservation. She will most definitely not reply to your enquirers even if you ask about the strange "confirmation" from the online reservation system and you may standing at the front desk without no reservation. This had happened to me and when I confronted the staff with their own email conversations and confirmations they just shrug their heads take no responsibility and tries to solve nothing.

How the owner of this place can keep the front office staff and chief receptionist / chief reservation officer is a total mystery. Even if they are his / her cousins. I must say though that some of the younger lower level girls i the front desk seems to try to do their best but since they are not in charge the have no power to solve things.

So if you don't want a reservation nightmare and no room; Stay out! This will most likely be the result any way without your total distress in the meantime.

I have stayed several times in this hotel but every year the quality of this hotel became worst then the year before.
The rooms are old and bad cleaned, in the night you can discover the coachroches coming out from the sink, the wifi is very slow also if you use it in the reception, the staff is absolutely not professional and every time is ready to charge you about everything, if you ask for a dirty towel for the beach you have to give 200 bath as deposit.
When you do the shower you have to wet all the floor because is not separate.
Every time I have been ordered the omelettes in the lobby I got the diarrea.
With the same money you can get a beatyful room in the hotels close this one, so before take a look for the avaibility in the others hotel, better for you

This hotel is a well run budget hotel which is well located for the entertainment areas on Metro and Soi Buakaw. The rooms could do with refurbishment as the are quite basic but comfortable enough for the price. The reception staff are very helpful and the rooms were cleaned regularly. There is a nice pool and coffee shop but the location is the best aspect as you can step out of the hotel and a miriad of bars restaurants are within two minutes walk. I would stay there again and would recomend for travellers on a budget.

Room Tip: Inside facing rooms overlook the pool
