We stayed here for 4 nights in November 2011 - Nice, but not great by any means. There are many better choices nearby.
The location is great - inside the South East corner of the moat - plenty of restaurants, food stalls, minimarts, massage, etc to satisfy.
The hotel itself is not really boutique - just the name. The pool is a joke. They should have saved the money, put in a Koi pond and created a nice garden area to hang out. What they did was put in a new - tiny - pool, right in the main reception area / corridor to walk up to all the rooms, that has room for 4 deck chairs, while you have to walk right behind them to get to your room. The whole time we where there it was populated with middle aged Australians pounding Chiang beer and chain smoking Marlboro's... odd spot for a pool vacation. The pool is also facing the main road - so noisy, no ambiance... poor choice for a pool.
The rooms are small - adequate, but small. The bathroom is TINY - you had to move the trashcan every time you went in to use the loo. Showers fine, but the room was more design than function - the sink and vanity was useless ... or hard to use, 2 inches of clearance between the spout and the basin. Handles already falling loose on the fixtures, etc...
Noisy rooms, not noise insulated at all. So you hear the road noise. Dark - there are no clear windows to let in light - just opaque coloured glass.
Breakfast was horrible. we ate there once, and went out for breakfast every other time... terrible.
Staff pleasant .. no real interaction with them, - they just let you be.
Rack rates are high, booked it online cheaper, but not worth the $38 ... at all.
