We tried to get into Eden 54 but due to all excellent reviews on tripadvisor there was no room in the inn. We were disappointed as it seemed to be the places to stay in KK however luckily Rosaane emailed me back and had managed to find some cancellations, it meant we had to move rooms a few times but we were happy with this as used to being on the road. On arrival to Eden 54 we had a very warm welcome from Rosanne and Chee Ling Ling, there was so helpful and we have never met such a excellent reception service. They told us good places to eat/drink, what to see and do in KK and we had a great stay due to their advise, we cannot give them enough praise.
In relation to the hotel itself, its is very clean however we found it to be quite dark due to the colour scheme. The rooms are really small but they are called Compact on the website anyway so this shouldnt come as a suprise. Its location is superb, very close to the Jessleton Jetty to catch the boats across to the islands. It is next door to a great supermarket which was very handy as there is no restaurant in the hotels. They also have a number of fridges around the hotel and communal kitchen with basic equipment e..g microwave, kettle, toaster. The walls are quite thin and so you can hear what is going on next door and when they are using the toilet or in the shower. The free wifi in the rooms didnt always work but think that there was issues with maintenance being carried out by the internet provider but there is a computer in the lobby. Rosanne and Chee Ling Ling sorted us out a amazing stay just outside the National Park for a couple of days in a lovely lodge called J Residence which was amazing, they booked us the best room too and we had such a lovely time. Overall we were happy with the hotel, it definetly offers value for money for the budget boutique traveller, we have stayed in nicer hotels but we feel it was the staff which made the stay extra special.
