We stayed at this hotel on a budget..........We was welcomed in by a lady who seemed very friendly and helpful, and we had two rooms between 5 of us, at $15 each, which we seemed very reasonable.
The room itself was very old and dated, but quite large. But that is not the issue here.
At night, they lock a gate out front at around midnight, being 5 young males, virtually every night we would have to wake the man who would open the gate. (Only way i can describe this man is that he has very long nails, instantly recognisable). He didnt seem too happy about waking up but we would always apologise.
We did notice though as we stayed longer, he kept asking us when we were going and were we had been so far, and were we going next, etc.
Two of my frineds also had their ipod head phones missing, but thought nothing of it as these are things that you can misplace, but he was sure he just left them on the bedside tabel, but we never suspected anything until later on.
On our last day we paid for room because we were leaving at 7am next morning for a bus to Nha Trang, and we didnt go out. But at around 10.30 am we all went out just to get some drinks from the shop as we were staying i8n, when we came back we noticed the gate was locked already, which was surprising anyway as it was very early, we rang the bell many time for around 5 minutes with no one opening. All of a sudden the man came andf opened door with tooth brush in hand saying he was cleaning his teeth, which we thought nothing of.
Around an hour later, one of my frineds was sorting something out in his bag and noticed that he had 40 pounds sterling and 3000 thai bhat missing from hos wallet, when we all checked, i had a 20 pound sterling and 1000 baht missing from my bag, and my other friend had 1000 baht and around 2,000,000 dong missing. Straight away we and told our friends in other room, which one of them had 3,000,000 dong missing.
Straight away we went down stairs and confronted the security amn who all of a sudden couldnt speak a word of english. We threatened to call police but as it was nearly 1am, w etried explainging that if the money woukd somehow return by morning, we would not take any further action.
We woke up very early and when we told the lady who had welcomed us, she was asking us silly questions and virtually laughed in our face after speaking to the security man, and then showed us a sign on the wall saying, please take care of your personal beloningsd and use the reception if you want to kkep your belongings safe, which added further insult to injury.
We knew we was fighting a loosing battle here, so we just shouted around the hotel that it was full of thieves and then got our bags.
And while leaving the hotel they even had the cheek to ask us to settle up a 3 dollar mini bar bill that we owed, which we laughed at and just walked out.
I REALLY DIDNT KNOW WHAT TO DO, IT IS FIRST TIME IVE EVER BEEN ROBBED, BUT WRITING THIS ON HERE AND TRYING TO GET PEOPLE TO AVOID THIS HOTEL IS THE BEST THING TAHT I CAN DO!!!
DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL.......THIEVING PEOPLE!!!
I can recommend the hotel on the same road called hotel 68 which is very sfae, clean and have friendly staff!!!
