“Contradictory impressions”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2012

1. Thank to other reviews I knew that we are to go first to the Citin Loft's reception. It's big 4* hotel close to Royal Express. But you are to cross main street of Hua Hin. At peak hours you may have some troubles with it.
2. I booked twin room and in booking notes typed clearly "no king-size beds". But the room we were provided was exactly double room with king-size bed. They couldn't change it because of full booking. Next morning they had given us another room.
3. Royal Express is just 2* hotel with minimal service. But as a daughter of 4* Citin Loft it has some nice qualities. We had not only safe in the room but also bathrobes (branded Citin Loft) and slippers. Maid service was good enough.
4. Hotel is located rather far from main touristic blocks of Hua Hin. But the town is rather small and you will have almost everything you need (including beach, markets and mall) within 15 min walk.
5. No shower cabin, just a curtain. It complies the price. But water heater was not operating. I failed to call the reception because the phone was out of function too :). After visiting reception an employee showed us a simple but uncommon procedure to reset the heater. Afterwards we were to did it again sometimes.
6. Main advantage of the hotel is it's reasonable price. When we decided to extend our stay for 2 nights more we were to pay full price (1000 Bath/night) without long-stay discount we had at initial booking (800 Bath/night). You may have better accommodation in Hua Hin for 1000 Bath.
7. The street is really noisy. Night draperies of dense cloth make the noise softer. I think rooms with courtyard windows are to be much more quiet but we never tried them.
8. Wi-Fi was operating pretty well (it's free here).

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2012

Rooms were a great size and maintained to a high standard everyday. Hotel can be noisy due to the stairway and corridor being so small and right outside the room.
Had trouble finding it, you need to check in at Citin Loft and they'll take you across the road to the hotel. We found the staff in the bigger hotel, Citin to be rude and unwilling to help as we were in the other hotel, but the staff in Royal Express were really friendly!
Location is great, right next to a 7/11 and places to eat. About a 15 min walk to the beach and a 10 min walk to the night Market and even more restaurants.
Only major minus really was there's no option for breakfast.
