Frangipani Villa-60s3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The location wasn't great. Hard to walk to any attractions. The WiFi was spotty and cut out, even in the lobby. The hot water was not regulated; leading to being hit with freezing cold water and a few seconds later getting burned while taking a shower. My biggest complaint was the staffs unwillingness to protect me and allowed me to be harassed by a tuk-tuk driver. The driver abandoned me after I had hired him for the day (the staff at the hotel hooked me up with the driver). I gave the guy at the hotel a portion of the agreed upon rate to give to the driver. The driver eventually showed up. Instead of turning him away, the guy at the hotel wait with him and both badgered me and expected me to the pay the full rate. When I went into the hotel, the driver was allowed to follow me well into the hotel with the hotel staff trying to convince me I needed to pay him. At 5:30am the next morning as I was trying to leave for the airport, the driver confronted me again outside the hotel. The security guard was there but did nothing to trying to get the guy to back off or convince my driver to leave. I was afraid for my safety and the staff at the hotel contributed to my concerns. I would highly recommend against staying here. You can find some place closer to the river front with better amenities and better staff.
I arrived from the airport past midnight, and the guard and desk clerk woke up to let me in. There were a little unprepared for my late arrival, but better than most and I was fairly quickly in my room. The next morning the breakfast was great and I checked out quickly with no hassle. While I don't have any specific complaints, this is really a better hotel for a business or vacation trip that lasts a bit longer where you want a house-type feel. For just a one night quick stay, there are similar quality hotels for about half the price.
