Had a 3 bed room on the 3rd floor. Not much view but basic/comfy. Large bed plus single bed. Very clean bathroom. The pool was really great. The bar food was good and prices very reasonable.

The hotel location is good and quite central - a short tuktuk ride away from sites, restaurants and the riverfront. Our 3 bed room on the 1st floor was very spacious, clean and tidy. The second bed was hidden behind a wall, giving our 17 yr old son some privacy. Staff were friendly and helpful, always smiling and on hand...
