Note; some renovation going on upstairs!
Yeah, it is OK, everything works. I wanted to be in central part of town by the nice big park; Nong Prachak.
SECOND thoughts; wi-fi sucks, actually it doesn't work at all! “Sorry”! Downstairs computer is ancient and contaminated with viruses, “Sorry”. It has no security software of any kind! I spent almost four hours trying with a slow connection on an old Windows XP system again trying to download security through www.download .com various free spoftware; AVG, Malewarebytes and Superantispy. I got 2 out of 3 done before I had to go to sleep. I gave instructions, from me, an old man, with various internet skills. I think I did a pretty good job. They need to complete the installations and update and scan to be pretty, pretty, pretty sure they now have a clean machine.
Phone, in room does not work at all, not even to call operator! “Sorry”. Service is reluctant, in my opinion.
There is a lack of maintenance or care. Little things. Toilet seat not secure, sink water comes out crooked, tub and sink water has small black specks coming out. I'd say the place was worn. I really hate to complain but “you” want to know the negative parts, right? “Sorry”!
