Worst Hotel Experience
We booked hotel well in advance and requested for a king size bed but were given a twin bed room with no alternative for all the 3 days. They were not even willing to accept their mistake and said in any case room charges are non refundable. Staff was very rude and didn't treat us properly. Wifi connection was too slow and kept disconnecting frequently. Hotel didn't provide us with international multi plug for mobile chargers (apparently they just have 2 which were already in use). Gyser was also not working and room and pool was not clean. Overall a very bad experience.

Terrible hotel...please avoid!
decor, river location, manager
The bathroom had a terrible stench. They said they would fix it and worked on it but the smell came back after awhile. They wanted is to wait until 2 in the afternoon for another room, then when they saw how terrible the room smelled they moved us to a deluxe room but the shower and toilet had yellow water. The staff were unorganized and hard to get ahold of. The breakfast was not very good and we were served omlettes that were undercooked. Another guest also had problems with the room because it was very noisy and was waiting to have the room changed. After many hours we gave up and decided to check out immediately.

good in all aspects
It is a hotel by the Ping river, it only takes minutes from the airport to this hotel. This is a theme hotel that use the concept of middle east palace for their decoration. The room size is ok, there is not much to choose from the breakfast but it is fine generally.

nice as always, and the food became even better
overall feeling, garden, food
very good, this time the kitchen was even better and also the service at the tour/travel agency inside (Khun Jo) was very pleasurable.
