I had to find a hotel for a night over arriving from thailand by train and taking morning ferry for the islands. Hotel is 30minutes away by taxi from the train station. i contacted hotel before my trip asking to help with taxi as train was arriving close to mid-night. hotel responded there will be plenty of taxis. my train from Malaysia got delayed and arrived at 2am instead. called hotel to arrange for someone to pick up, but nigh shift spoke no english.
finally, one hours later, with other tourist found a night tuk-tuk who ripped us off on price...
Rooms are ok and very simply, electrical showers are temperamental and were more on a cold water side, then a proper shower.
Breakfast was mostly thai and asia food, but banas, lipton tea and white toasts are plenty.
Me and another western couple were the only westerners at breakfast.
A tuk-tuk to the ferry's company bus takes 15 minutes from the hotel and morning staff at the recieption speaks decent english to guide you around.More
