  • 8.0.Very Good

    The hotel location is great if you want to stay in Karon but car parking very limited. The staff were all very pleasant and the room quite good. There was a lot of sand on the floor of the bedroom which is not so nice. One of the curtains was hanging down which I repaired and then it was ok. The hotel was good for the price.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Uselt skick

    Det som var bra var läget men oerhört otrevlig personal, skicket på hotellet var slitet och rummen upplevdes inte rena. Det kröp myror inne konstant och mellan receptionen och restauranger var det en råtta på kvällen.
