You Get What You Pay For
The views at this hotel are amazing. It's more inland so it's usually quiet. The hotel staff doesnt speak very good English but they seem to really be trying & willing to serve you. The rooms are decorated in a modern style and seem to be in pretty good condition. There's a rain shower with hot water and mini fridge. We stayed in their cheapest room and it was fine not having a bathtub or jacuzzi in there. There's a/c in all the rooms, and a restaurant with good tasting food. They have laundry service and room service. We were there in October and at one point, I swear we were the only guests there. AKA Gym is just down the hill (you can walk) and they have good classes and a nice little cafe. You definitely need a motorbike to get around in Thailand (& you can rent or buy). I most likely would stay at this hotel again. It's a decent price and it was pretty clean. I don't recommend for people that have a hard time walking.
To get to the lobby is a hike and to get to the room is even more of a hike. Originally we were in 706 and it was 81 steep stairs to get there. Room 306 is only 45 steep stairs but still sucks going through all that multiple times a day. There is no elevator. When we first arrived there was no plumbing for 2 days. Wifi was shoddy in the room most of the time, and that was the reason they moved us to 306 (didn't work at all in the higher room). The beds are really hard. They are also just two beds pushed together on a platform. They give you clean towels every day but never change your sheets. Most linens have some sort of stain on them. There were ants in the bed inspite of no food. It seemed like there was something not working in every room. 706 was the wifi and 306 was the rain shower & the toilet barely flushed. Unless, you absolutely need a bathtub I wouldn't do one of the upgrades. And the restaurant is quite pricey compared to the little thai places off the main road; they get you with vat and service fees. My biggest complaints are: the steep stairs, hard beds, bad wifi, and ants.
