Okay, yes it's old - but it's a bit of a classic. Okay, yes, it still has carpet, I agree, they should get rid of it, but honestly, it's not a reason to dismiss this place. Okay, the staff doesn't speak a lot of English - last time I checked this hotel was in Thailand - and checking in isn't rocket science - learn to speak a little Thai and you'll be happier at places like this. I found the staff to be extremely helpful.
Yup, low water pressure up on the 5th floor - bit of bummer but I still had a good shower - life could be worse.
