This hotel is not in the luxury class; no pool for instance, and it is located amongst rather shabby local buildings. However it provides a slice of local Thai life whilst offering the comforts and safety which the tourist needs. Plenty of great food outlets and useful shops nearby and the beach is about 100m away. Excellent secure wifi. Plenty of activity at night and a great night sea breeze. Staff (the owners) are very conscientious, command of English is limited amongst other staff. Strongly recommended if you want to sample a little of local life but be safe and comfortable.
