Re: Agoda hotel descriptions warning

The problem with Agoda is the misrepresentation and lack of disclosure about hidden extras that some hotels will spring at you on arrival. The hotel should make sure their listings are correct, pool view rooms actually have a pool view, babies getting charged whether they eat or not should be speci...

Re: Dates when no alcohol sold in Hua Hin

Re: Agoda hotel descriptions warning

Most of the times you will get a better rate if you book directly with the hotel. Hotels have to pay between 15-30% commission depending on listing, inventory, positioning etc. so there is room to negotiate.

Their webpage is http://elegant-restrooms.com/th/.
