I was happy to check in once I saw the blackboard out front advertising rooms for THB700 with superfast wifi. Of course, the rooms were actually THB800 and with dial up internet speeds accessed through a generic wi-fi hotspot that only allowed log in to one gadget per room (your phone OR your laptop, not both.)
My room safe would not work. I went down to reception and politely asked if I could get assistance, only to be met with a tantrum from the reception desk that included throwing a pen, messing up his hair in anger, and storming out in the direction of my room. He told me that it was my fault. The internet still did not work.
The balcony was absolutely filthy - I counted 12 cigarette butts.
I had happily planned on a six night stay, I checked out after my first. If the staff are unable to offer any kind of customer service, perhaps they should find jobs selling glow sticks at the local markets.
