Got off the plane in the Savarnabhumi Airport late at night, got a taxi, and were immediately faced with billboard after billboard of English/ American advertisements. That actually didn't surprise us, but we were surprised to see such nicely kept, developed highways taking us to the city. After being in Chiang Mai, where the roads were very sub- …
... odd! We also cycled through some very rural areas in the Thai countryside which was great to see. Lots of jungle style habitats and more strange living conditions! Over the second and third days, I was struggling to eat, feeling very ropey and became very good friends with the toilet! Not ideal considering the following morning we have to be up very early for a 10 hour bus journey over the border into ...

Great hotel, great staff.
Only complaints are it's location (it's a bit off the beaten path, let's just say that) and the thin walls....very self conscious of any noises we made coming in late at night. It had an intimate feel.
I'm a fan of practicality over pretty decorations, and so that's why I gave it 4/5 stars. The bathroom mirror in the blue room was at a strange angle and hard to use to put my contacts in or put on my make up, or style my hair.
