Great location”

The hotel location is excellent. Within walking distances to halal foods (even the famous Nasi Ayam “Khai Thot Decha”), bus hub (Chee Uthit Road), Kim Yong market, and Lee Garden Night Market. 7-Eleven is closed too. Unfortunately our room 424 is so smelly..really bad smelly like a bangkai in there. We don’t like the shower, and the flush also not flushing well. The tub is broken we can see a hole. The bed is old, we can feel the springs. However our friend’s room 423 is better. No smelly. These all however considered worth the price we paid as we spent more time outside. The staffs also really friendly and speak Malay. Easy to check in and out. Highly recommended but please check the room 424.

Very good”

The Merlin is a walkable distance from the station if you are fit, (maybe twenty+ minutes if you can read a map) but you won’t want to do it with luggage on a hot day. The hotel itself is quite large, but a little old, down a quiet soi just over the river but still functions OK and is spacious. The staff are very friendly and try to be helpful, though they don’t speak a lot of English. They don’t take a cash deposit on checking in but do ask to retain passports, which might not be convenient if you need your passport for something like buying train tickets. There are no room safes, which is probably the only real downside. The room was clean and comfortable and, for what we paid, offered fair value for money. There is a lift. Breakfast was OK. There is a choice from a small set menu.
