Lovely place, very friendly staff. The roof pool was fabulous and it felt private as we saw nobody else using it. Great location. The breakfast was lovely- the croissants were served warm 😋. The rooms were good sized, clean and maintained. The shower is the best I've ever encountered ANYWHERE, hot and powerful... absolutely lush after a long day on... More

Me and my wife stayed here for 4 days for our honeymoon. We had a great stay, close to the nightlife and highway, but far enough to be quiet at night. Loved our stay, would recommend to anyone. Quiet time is from 10:00pm to 8:00am.

Lovely hotel with a definite boutique feel. Room was great, staff couldn't be more helpful and the price more than reasonable. Small criticisms; air con not as efficient as it could have been and the rooftop pool sunbeds a little tired- although the area on the roof was lovely. Overall great hotel and awesome value.

I luckily came across this place at the last minute and I'm so glad I did. It was by far the best hotel we stayed at in Thailand. The room was quite big and clean. There's only 24 rooms in the whole hotel (8 rooms per floor) so it's a pretty quiet place. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful,... More

They were very nice and their English is very good. They gave us extra towels for the swimming pool and offered us as much water as we wanted.

“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.”
