Nice balcony view, big room
I was given a big room with Balcony. Bed is comfortable. Heater shower flow was not constant. The flow was a minute very hot and a minute very cold. Breakfast was OK only. Central Festival Mall is 6 min walk and Big C mall is just behind of Central Festival. Request at front counter from 10am onward and they provide free shuttle services to Central Festival Mall.

Ok hotel
Location is ok, free shuttle to Central Festival and Weekend market. Room: Strong cigarette smell when we first stepped in. Room is very big and bed is comfortable.

Tour Package Hotel
This is one of the hotels catered for tour groups so do not expect quiet moments for chilling. Room size is awesome. Location great too! Near to Central Festival Mall and the Weekend Market. Got a car so couldn't complain the accessibility.

Good location
Nothing much in the vicinity but within walking distance to Central. Great if you want some quiet yet be near to the buzz

Complete muck up from start to finish
Checked in and went to the room - a big and clean room, that was OK. Then my wife took a shower and the shower stall overflowed - backed up - with stinking dirty water. Staff were called and we were told that they would fix it TOMORROW. Not good enough! Then we found that the Aircon was not cooling. Again, staff were called and we got exactly the same response - we'll fix it TOMORROW. I called the Duty manager and was told 'Sorry, not have!' I asked to change the room - same again, Sorry, cannot' Probably the worst nights sleep (none) I've ever had anywhere. No apology from the hotel. We should have been reimbursed but they acted like absolutely nothing had happened. I'll never stay there again and if they continue in this manner it will probably fall down in a year....

Clean & good location
Clean place, value for money, near to central festival, but the breakfast hotel was not that good for paying around 350 bath

Under expectation
The reception gave us the room in the old building and at the top floor which is very hot, and aircondition didn't work well until late night
