2/10 Poor

Online it looked great. In reality, hotel was noisy and uncomfortable, restaurant service slow and mediocre food, staff tried hard and were friendly but the service was very poor. Everything from requesting a hair dryer to a to go coffee cup was answered by a No can’t do. Disappointing.

10/10 Exceptional

I enjoyed my stay at the Golden Crown. I was only there one night, but it was the perfect place to rest after a busy day of sightseeing. My room was clean and spacious. The hotel is in a beautiful setting, and has these high windows in the lobby that makes you feel like you're in the middle of the jungle (you are!). The food was very good and service attentive. I would stay here again.

Beautiful all round! Would stay here again.
Beautiful hotel! Tranquil location (away from city centre), wonderful views from the room and restaurant/pool. Dinner/breakfast buffets we’re delicious and service was top. Room was spacious and bed super duper comfy, woken up by monkeys on the balcony which was noisy but cute. (Keep the doors closed). Staff were fantastic. Would recommend!
