I have been coming to ?Thailand on business and pleasure for exactly 30 years - this is the best place I have stayed in anywhere in the country. Booked Room 205 (2 bedroom apartment) via Agoda at great price. This is a cool place to be - from the moment you arrive and stumble on the false glass floor in reception (you will know what I mean if you have been there) to getting in the limo to go back to the airport. Great location in quiet back street, but only minutes from the beach and Bangla.
The size and fittings in the appartment are exactly to my style - this is how I would furnish my own apartment. Fabulous sound system, don't forget to take your iSomething to listen to your own music, Big TV's in all rooms (never switched them on), great bathtub and power shower in main bedroom, beds with firm matresses, blackout curtains, wireless internet that works etc....
My only criticism is the price of the drinks in the bar and the fact that the bar guy was not that good at making cocktails. I cannot remember the last place I stayed in where it was cheaper to drink from the mini-bar than in the lobby bar!
Already booked to return at the end of July :-)
