(Of course their pictures look nicer than ours!) πŸ˜€ Oh and a tip. If you are planning to stay here, do ask for the upper floors. Specifically ask for floors 8 and 9. As the lower floors are constantly being rented by people who use it for “short time” purposes. (Prostitution). Although the hotel does not admit this. Happy backpacking in Songkhla Thailand!
