Reviewed 24 December 2013

This hotel i found online and it was cheap but the adage you get what you pay for holds true. The place is quite large with five floors and the rooms were large enough. It's not in the most idea situation, about 1km from the bus station but away from the river and the centre of town. On first glance the room was nice decorated and looked clean. On closer inspection the pillowcase had holes in it, the bathroom was moody and smelt and there were stains on some of the furnishings. I only stayed the one night and it served my purpose, the bed was comfy and I got some rest. My room included breakfast and I have to say that the rice porridge with chicken i chose was the highlight of the stay, very delicious. The staff were friendly enough and courteous. Wifi in the room was pretty weak, better in the lobby. Overall it was inexpensive but dated and old and a little grubby in the room.

Room Tip: Its set back from the road so you don't get road noise which is good, but rooms at the rear of t...

Stumbled upon this hotel after a long trip in from Laos. It was priced ok so I spent the night here and also a second night. It has certainly seen better days but with that being said I had a quiet and comfortable sleep. A short walk into the night market area. Refrigerator and air conditioning. 450 baht.

Contrary to many other reviews, my experience here was quite positive. This hotel was a little tired, but that was reflected in the price. My room had character, was one of the few I've been in in Thailand in this range which supplied an electric jug, and the air conditioning worked well. The location, within walking distance of the night market, was good and was quiet at night. The reception desk was efficient and English-speaking. A very good included breakfast with well-presented selection of fresh fruit and choice of dishes from the menu. Good coffee. For the money, definitely recommended.

I dashed into this hotel direct from the bus station during a hail storm and for that I was thrilled! The sheets were clean, the AC worked, the bed firm and the two free bottles of water sealed. However the furniture bruised, bed squeaked, front desk service was poor, and the advertised sixth floor restaurant was closed up, as in no longer exists. The morning food (aka breakfast) was neither authentic Thai or western, it was some russian hybrid of the two...do yourself a favor and eat down the street at Doi Chang Fresh Coffee house.

Other reviews sound a little too harsh to me - for one night this hotel it ok, bit dirty but the air conditioning works well and there was no wild dogs in the road. If you just want somewhere to sleep cheaply then it's perfect.

avoid this hotel. large poultry farm beside hotel roosters crowing at all hours of the morning. staff unconcerned. vicious dogs on street nearby. a noisy and very unhealthy hotel. chicken feces on rooftop restaurant. fire trap at side street entrance. let's be thankful that TripAdvisor advises. and provides potentially life saving information.
