Great breakfast, lovely & welcoming staff, excellent accommodation.
Lack of full view of river.
Pam, the hotel manager is awesome! She really made me feel at home! She went out of her way to ensure I was safe since I was travel alone, she helped me with detailed instructions on how/where to go and even save money
1. Internet is pretty bad, very slow... even worse to connect need to go to the web and enter the user name and password. If you close your phone you would need to log in again. 2. There are only local TV Thai channels, Theoretically could do streaming but since the internet is too slow you are lucky if you can connect for 30 sec. No way to even get the news ...
The location couldn't be bettered, on the river front in the Old Town within walking distance to the important temples and the Royal Palace and with metro, taxi and tuk tuk transport nearby and lots of local eateries. The hotel is on the opposite bank of the river to the temple Arun Wat. The otherwise spectacular view of this monument, unfortunately, is impeded by an ugly construction situated between half of the hotel and the river which blocks this view although you can still watch the constant river traffic. The hotel itself I would describe as "quaint" and a little old fashioned and cluttered. The rooms, although not enormous, were well equipped with comfortable beds and very welcome air conditioning to excape the steamy heat. For me, the best feature during my stay was the delightful Ms Pan. Her welcoming smile and concern to make your stay as comfortable as possible is one of the hotel's greatest assets.
I found the fact that you have to choose your breakfast the day before a little irritating. I also found it irksome that you could not settle your mini-bar expenses by card when you are leaving and running out of currency. I would say that their accounting system generally needs updating with a more itemized final bill.

Comfortable beds. Very quiet at all times despite central location. Stunning Riverside seats at breakfast every day. Staff so courteous and helpful. Air con a boon .able to walk to major temples and boat ride from own Dock.
