Let’s face it the JB HANSA is not a new hotel but it has got major advantages other hotels don’t have! In the past 2 years we have stayed at the JB Hansa hotel and each time some changes had been made, ok minute but nevertheless changes we saw. The reason we keep coming back is because the hotel is outside the centre of Hat Yai with extremely easy access to all major roads to the various attractions. We also value the very friendly and hospitable staff. Another major point ion choosing the JB HANSA is the fact that their menu is very extensive, their Chef excellent and food prepared has got a good consistency and is affordable in shrill contrast with other hotels!!! Each time we stay for a number of nights we have an aroma massage, that too can be recommended, not expensive and they don’t pull your various limbs to the extent that you end up in permanent traction! Beds, are firm but not uncomfortable, pillows are comfy. TV channels are plenty and the rooms have free Wifi, something which is, in this day and age has to be paid for in many well-known hotel chains! Rooms are spacious and absolutely quiet, no door slamming, no rowdy parties and smoke free rooms are actually smoke free!!! There is a refrigerator with drinks, 2 bottles of complementary water and the usual toiletries in bath room. There is more than enough space to hang your clothing and a hair dryer is available at lobby desk. Hotel has secure parking for hotel guests.
On the down side:
bathrooms could use a solid cleaning.
It might be an idea to get someone to look at the water heater situation. Hot water seems to be a “hot” commodity resulting in – when hotel is fully occupied with busloads of foreign tourists – in luke warm water
Late last year the pool was closed. Inquiries revealed that the swimming pool was being “refurbished”. During our very recent stay we inquired again and were sort of led to believe that the lobby staff “did not know” however persistent asking by us revealed that the pool was now covered up – yes we saw that (!) and that a convention centre was being build. So the bad news is no swimming and you can forget going for that recreation to other hotels ‘cos they won’t let you use their pool!
Would we recommend this hotel: yes simply because it is safe = outside the car bombing area + comfortable + price/value good and yes, when we need some R & R we’ll book again the JB HANSA.
