          Near old city”

          I like that it is not on the main road. Just walking distance to Tha Phye Gate. There is no lift to upper floors. Interior is abit run down and for me, it doesn't matter much. It has all the basic needs for me to stay. Some may like the access to pool. Breakfast was just butter toast breads and tea. They should give choices of coffee or milo instead of just tea.

          Really nice place in a great location. Booked the standard double room with an en suite and a balcony, and couldn’t complain about anything. Pool looked nice but we didn’t use it.

          So cheap you can't complain”

          The cheapest place we could find. Fan room and everything is working although building and furniture is old (there is another fan room but price slightly higher with newer furniture). Pool is closed due to covid-19 but common area at reception is open to have a beer and eat your meals from delivery.

          Loved it, but a few cons.”

          Pros: Good staff, especially the girls who worked in the evening/night shift (they were amazing!) everyone was helpful with tours and information. Great location, 2 minutes to the best food street. Plus for the pool, but it was super cold. The guy who made coffee did really good coffee and very kind. Cons: There were a smoking area, so you couldn’t smoke in the balcony (witch were hard when we lived on the fourth floor without an escalator. The beds were hard. They were very clear with that the breakfast only were toast and tea, but it would have been nice with something more.

          Great value, good atmosphere, good location, swimming pool”

          Very good value: semi-luxury accommodation at a budget price. Just outside the Old City, convenient but quiet location, nice pool. As a freelancer I love to work from the shady but breezy downstairs patio by the pool - the world's best 'office'! Try to get a room on the West side, which has great views of the Old City and the Doi Suthep mountain range and temple, rather than the East side, where the only 'view' is of the wall of the apartment block next door.

          It’s a really nice price for what you get. The rooms are good with airco and a hot shower. Breakfast is included but super simple but that was fine. And a big plus was that the location was perfect. Nothing bad to say about this place!

          Building looks better on the outside. The cheapest rooms are at the highest levels (no lift) and use the oldest furniture. You get what you pay for. At least there's hot shower even in the cheapest room.

          Downside Superior room, lacked facilities, and was in need of renovation in bathroom, breakfast was only coffee and toast! Upside Good comfortable and clean beds, staff really helpful, and there's lots of tours available, and scooter hire! The swimming pool is a welcome extra, as there is no beach!
