What we say: 4 stars

This institution opened in 1952, and it appears to have not changed since then. It's a bit of a shame as the foyer promises mystery and charm but the rooms themselves are dreary. As it is, the Atlanta is often full, with people seduced by the foyer, quirky pool and eclectic notices around the place posted by founder Dr Max Henn. The rooms have none of the charm the rest of the place does and the mattresses are either rock hard or disturbingly soft. The food in the restaurant is outstanding, with the decor 50s style and some of the 60s grime still around. It's fun for what it is, but the we're quirky so love us! attitude can be a bit much. The Atlanta is located at the very end of the soi. When you reach the church it's the abandoned-looking building on your right. It's the quietest soi in the neighbourhood, but borders the freeway, so front facing rooms are a bit quieter. Their strict anti-sex tourist policy extends to those who look like sex-workers, so travellers with Thai boy/girlfriends take note.
