We stayed one night in the SA Hotel on our way to Koh Kood Island. We didn't expect much of the hotel to start with but were still disappointed by the incredibly unfriendly staff, the dirty (bath)room and the entire negative atmosphere of this hotel.
I must say, during the single night we stayed, I felt truly unsafe in this place although I've traveled and stayed in quite some challenging places before. Loud car-music from the street, no insulation against noise from the stairway/other rooms, no safe (we put our money under our pillows) and the unfriendly and indifferent way we were treated by reception staff added to this feeling that you just want to get out of this hotel as soon as possible.
The reception staff didn't speak a word of English and instead of confirming our boat trip to Koh Kood the next morning, they initially cancelled the trip. Only after persistant questioning from our side they called again and in the end it worked out.The only friendly staff we could find in this place are the ladies that work at the café and they made us a delicious breakfast the next morning, thank you for that!
Our main conclusion: stay somewhere else if you do need to stay a night in Trat. Even considering the amazingly cheap price, a good night's sleep is not guaranteed in this place.
