We booked this hotel the night before or visit and actually made an error in booking, which the hotel were pleasantly able to change for us!

Modern hotel, with very nice rooms and facilities. It is a bit pricy in my opinion but the facilities pay for it. The two pools are small, though they make their work as a fast refresher. The best is the friendly staff, willing always to help and find solutions to our problems.

We arrived at hotel and had really good vibes- staff nice and helpful, room clean and reasonable size. Swimming pool on roof and main lobby (although both small and pretty cold). After our first night in the morning we left our key at reception and asked for the room to be made up to which they said yes of course....

We stayed in this hotel for 3 days in July15. The rooms are really nice. They are big and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. Only downside was the locations from the beach. You have to walk 10 mins to reach. Also the pools in the hotel are nowhere near that you can swim. So don't think about that.

5 minutes walk to Chaweng Beach; you don't need to take a cab if you don't plan to go outside Chaweng. Even if you do, you can take the minibuses just in front of the hotel. The service was excellent. The water is free of charge, there is an elevator, they give you towels if you want to as you...

I stayed here for 4 days with my girlfriend and loved it. Very tasteful decor, very comfortable beds, super clean and new accommodations. We also love the little good priced cafeteria and the location as well. It feels like a 5 star small hotel!

“I could not say a room to be not good. I stayed in one located at the front side of the hotel and it was very calm. So I can suppose that other rooms located to the back side of the hotel are also good.”
