On the positive side, this is the heart of Thailand and the staff are just wonderful in every way. We enjoyed glorious sunrises from our large, clean room. The mattress and pillows were of good quality. Water pressure was great and wifi worked fine. BUT! The hotel is so run down, with blistered paint and dirty walls. Breakfast was the worst, eggs and hot dogs every day. The television should be in a museum, and has poor reception on every channel. The shower operates in three modes: scalding, freezing or scalding with bursts of freezing. There is an excellent chef, but no western food options in spite of the menu and with few guests, many of the Thai options were also not available. If you can forego the swimming pool, there are a few new hotels in Kalasin that are better options.
