We chose this hotel based on the fabulous reviews we had seen on Tripadvisor, but were disappointed with certain aspects of the hotel. On the positive side it is in a fairly good location in Hua Hin, close to a number of good restaurants in Soi 94 and with easy access to the centre of town. The room we had was very spacious and comfortable, and although it overlooked the railway we found it reasonably quiet. We were not, however, impressed with the pool area however: the colour of the pool was very dubious and I would certainly not have liked to ingest the water in it. We are also surprised about the rave reviews about the friendliness of the owner since, as far as we were concerned, he seemed barely able to bring himself to say hello to us. His wife was a little more friendly and helpful. We didn't eat at the hotel so can't comment on the food. I personally would not stay at this hotel again, although it obviously suits a lot of people judging by the favourable reviews I have seen.
