Hated it from start to finish. The single, only redeeming feature was that the air-conditioning worked really well.
(-) Breakfast - awful. Room - old, dirty, crumbling. Bathroom - awful, paint flaking off the walls, water never truly hot, toilet flushing awkward. Internet - is free in some rooms apparently. Just not mine. 60 kuai a day, and slow, slow, slow. Service - terrible. Woken to clean room! Kidding, no I'm not. At 9:15. The list of awfulness is endless.
Note: I stayed in the old, cheaper part. Apparently the new part (up the hill) is wonderful. I would advise anyone considering staying here to pay the extra 200 kuai and stay "upstairs".

We eventually landed at about 2am and found out bags before going through security and put into the Thai ...
