What we say: 3 stars

If you're on a true backpacker budget, the easy-to-find Diamond should do the trick. We wouldn't even call it a “diamond in the rough”, but for the price, it's a wee bit better than you might expect. Rooms are showing some wear and are totally lacking character, though the ones we saw seemed well kept. TVs in all rooms and sea views from the upper floors are an added bonus. We also found the receptionists to be more cheerful than many we're used to encountering in similar budget Thai style hotels. The drab ground-floor restaurant and front desk are allegedly open 24 hours -- an apparent necessity considering that some of the hotel's business comes in the form of late night “rendezvous” by the hour. Some foreign travellers have apparently been charged 500 baht for air-con rooms, but we were quoted the rates advertised in the window during our last visit.
