There is nothing that gives you the feeling of being in Thailand, until you step out of the building into the heart of Chaweng's party district of Soi Green Mango. This aside, the rooms are clean, very reasonably priced, and have decent facilities, including air-con, WiFi in all rooms, TV, fridge and minibar, hot water shower and safe. The hotel consists of several blocks, interlinked by walkways, with rooms on the third and fourth floors above a shopping plaza. A rooftop swimming pool offers panoramic views over Chaweng and the courtyard in front of the main entrance sometimes hosts music and fashion events, with a huge stage and lighting being erected. Given the facilities, this represents very good off the beach value.
