This hotel is a small hotel situated just less than 5 minutes walking from the busier part of Hua Hin. It's separated into two sides: the beach side and crossing a small street to the smaller room side.
I had a chance to use both sides due to some money issue (still a college kid), stayed one night in an Oceanbed villa on the beach side and another in a silksand room.
Check-in was a breeze. My room wasn't ready so they invited me to their beach side restaurant for a free welcoming drink first (which should be complimentary to all guests?), we got the room on the second floor just right next to the street. The room was very spacious and loved everything about it. Big LCD screen, with Bose iPod speaker connected to another Bose speaker in the bathroom. There was also a proper coffee making machine.
If you love staying outdoor, before entering your room you have an outdoor sofa that you can enjoy some of your seafood meal outside at night with a nice gentle breeze from the sea (I recommend you buy some takeaway food from the night market).
The bathroom was really huge with sensor operated light with a separated room for toilet (one of the things I hate about some hotels is that the toilet is too close to your bath tub). The jacuzzi was big with one drawback: the hot water pressure was so weak that it took almost an hour to overflow the tub.
The room was being cleaned two times. The second time they would remake you bed and fill ice cubes, light the candles in the room for you.
Second night, silksand room was a big downgrade. Got a second floor room. The room itself was fine but hated the bathroom. Everything seems to be too close. I'm 6' 5" so I found it kinda hard to use the toilet in that little space.
Throughout our stay we got free Wi-Fi connection. Service was very good and very attentive. Breakfast was enjoyable and not crowded at all which is what I like about this hotel.
I'll add some photos later on.
(A bit out of the story but:) For those who are comparing these small hotels with larger franchised hotels, I would say get a small one with a more personalized and attentive service plus all you spend go to the pockets of the locals, not some rich Hiltons.
