“Great Value for a 2 stars hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2009

I'm staying in this hotel as a stopover before I go over to Koh Samui the following day. It's so far the cheapest hotel which I have ever stayed at 450bht (as at Oct 09).

The room is clean and I would consider this better than a hostel. There are ample parking lots and breakfast is provided with the rate. The breakfast is nothing fanciful, with 2 pieces of bread and porridge. The pork porridge is yummy and warm my stomache before I set off for the car ferry to Koh Samui.

The only bad thing is the water canister in the toilet leaking and the tap mixing not able to control the flow of water between the shower and the tap.

I personally think that the room is great value for money, just that you need to set your expectation right.
