Close to pubs, shopping malls and beach road. At first I thought that the street noise would disturb our sleep as the premise is situated along the bustling alley (Soi 8), lots of bars restaurants; but once you're in it was completely silent. The hotel offers fresh and good breakfast, which they serve until 12 noon. Reception staff always nice. They helped arrange for the many places we visited. We got surprised after returning back late, Christmas night; when opening the door, we saw a letter; thought might be a bill, but it was a Christmas card. We really appreciate the way we were both treated. Thanks Flipper Lodge staff.
