Not too bad
Checking in was a breeze and the staff were friendly. The room I had was decent with a few webs here and there, but relatively clean otherwise. The only hiccup I had staying in this place was that a centipede crawled out from the drainage while I was taking a shower, which was kind of shocking.

Review on Local Riverside
The Cons are, Hard to Find especially at night time, no visible sign at road level but far atop, unaware foreigners could get toyed around by any ill-minded tuktuk driver looking for some extra cash just to find the location (almost experienced that there at that night of arrival). Had a nice fight with a big dark brown red Cockroach during shower crawling up to the legs toward private area while eyes wide shut with shampoo bubbles, somewhat as expected from the dim not so clean bathroom condition with kitchen-warehouse styled iron door. Maybe, this place is Good for young hippie backpackers, but not so good for a business personality on transit. The Pros are, the manager/possibly-owner and staffs speak English well, understand current issues, communicative, accommodating and friendly, below is a bistro-styled restaurant with some good menus and fresh drinks. Understand that the manager once said that some visitors left not so-nice trolling comment causing negative impact to the business, however this comment is not meant to troll around, but a true honest reflection of an Agoda's guest/s, over both Cons and Pros.

Good but...
Everything was good but they could improve. The bathtub had a hole so even if I wanted to use it would be useless. The room smelled stale and there were no windows. The staff were super nice and helpful though and the food was very good. My one main concern was this one night that I came in late and I was advised that a night watchman would let me in. I kept buzzing for 10 min and no one answered. As it turns out, he was across the street... Drinking, I believe. But that's the okay part. The part that bothered me was how the front door was locked from the outside. If a fire had broken out, it would have been disastrous for people inside. I hope they find a way to address this as I would definitely recommend this place if it weren't for that.

Good location, helpful staffs, good for value.
It is centrally located, you can walk to city attractions such as WAT PHROM, GRAND PALACE, WAT BOTUM, CENTRAL MARKET, NIGHT MARKET and RIVERSIDE ROAD. Staffs are very helpful, nice and very friendly. I think everything is good except the mattress.

Just the location!
I booked the venue for stay because the photos shown on the booking site was fantastic! Be aware that its very basic and run down even when I am staying at Penthouse, the balcony cannot be used its full of debris and upon check in there were no toilet amenities available in the room at all! Not even the toilet rolls were given and no bottled water as well! Frankly I was disappointed with this place! Its like a war torn place! Only the location can speak for itself which is good! This is the first even rating I gave such a negative review to any hotel I have ever stayed! To all visitors to this area, do be careful before you book with this hotel.
