Old established Hotel sited over two buildings with one being the actual Tower comprising Deluxe Rooms and better. Stayed in Deluxe with no breakfast included in my room rate. Looked at breakfast on offer and the Standard rooms in original adjoining building and think I made right choice.
It's probably the Standard and Superior Rooms in the old building that generate bulk of negative reviews.
Be aware that even the Tower rooms show sign of dated decode and furnishings, whilst carpeted it been down for a while with some unavoidable stains.
Well located yet a bit on fringe. Easy access to adjoining eateries and night bazar, massage and bars nearby and close enough to Loi Kroc Rd action/attractions.
Has good pool but biggest gripe is that Porn Ping has no gym. Access to gym recommended by Reception didn't work for me with Tuk Tuk etc. For a hotel of this size and Standard with grounds available to not have a gym is very unusual and frustrating.
Housekeeping did a good job, Reception was friendly, pleasant and professional. Roof top bar is available although not well patronised. Drinks a bit pricey.
Has no safe in room and this also is unusual and annoying, safety deposit boxes available at Reception but you need to walk around with this clumpy key.
Had a very good size window with great sunlight and outlook to mountains and across the city. Sadly the pidgeons have made a mess of the windows and area outside the window - not sure what Hotel policy is on keeping this clean. See picture uploaded.
Other than that it worked well for me and happy to recommend if you accept the mentioned annoyances as the price was good.
