We booked a room at Spelunca on hotels.com and reserved a "cave suite." When we arrived, however, we were given a room that was identified on the hotel's own website as a "Deluxe Cave Room," not a suite. When we pointed this out to the owner, he proceeded to argue with us that the hotel's website was wrong and that we actually were in a suite. He then offered to show us the rooms that the hotel's website identified as suites (the 300 level rooms) and offered to give us the lower rate if we thought the other rooms were nicer. Long story short, the suites were much larger and brighter, plus they had semi-private balconies as opposed to the shared terrace the 200 level rooms have. We were eventually given the lower rate. The room itself was very nice, it was just too bad that the hotel's owner attempted to rip us off. One last point, the other reviewer's point about the morning call to prayer was entirely accurate - the longest and loudest call is at 5:30AM and it is so loud it sounds like the muezzin is in the room with you.
