The noisy church adjacent to the hotel drove me crazy. Expect loud music and singing at least twice a day at inconvenient hours (when you would like to rest). The breakfast buffet was good. However I found the food on the menu quite average for the price. In my opinion the rooms are also too pricey, especially compared to some...

The hotel itself is fine. Quite old but it has been refurbished to a standard that fits with its location and price. The Thai restaurant on the top floor is good but only that in terms of cooking. The views are excellent. Breakfast was also fine - the usual international mix. The real problem is the happy clappy church that...

The hotel was ok and fairly clean but not the room nor the food was really worth the price. Didn't like the musty air in the room. Renovations going on and there is a need for it. No spa at the moment altough they advertise it. Very nice view from the top floor restaurant.

I had a very comfortable stay. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed. The service was generally good and staff are all very polite and friendly. The internet was fast and free, the only issue being that one has to get a new voucher every 24 hours. I enjoyed the harbour view from my room; however, the room also faced on...

We stayed in room 440 overlooking the sea front from 01 to 05 November 2016. It has one of the most beautiful views on can ask for.

Only spent one night at the hotel, during dinner there's a hotel which is I guess on the 9th floor which has a clear view of the port. So you get to enjoy nice view while having your dinner. Break fast was okay....nothing wow about the break fast.

This hotel is right in the city centre, with good food and nice facilities. However, the rooms and service leave a lot to be desired. The rooms are musty, so you are constantly breathing in bad air. The 'complimentary buffet breakfast' costs 24,000 THS per day, while the staff seem more eager to argue over small things rather than make...
