I find this to be a good compromise: significantly cheaper than the top-tier hotels nearby (can't name them, but look at the map and you'll know), but still provides reliable hot water, electricity, and most importantly for me: Wifi you can count on.
Bonuses: The sauna is nice, the gym is clean, the restaurant makes tasty food.

Overall the hotel was OK. Not bad for the price. The only things that I did not like: there were many mosquito's (luckily they had a net) and a stench in the bathroom (don't think it was mold, but some other unfamiliar and unpleasant stench).

We stayed at the Lal Hotel for 2 nights during the low season. The hotel staff are very friendly and well accommodating. The rooms were nice and spacious, with comfortable beds and hot showers. There was a TV but was not hooked up to any satellite, so you couldn't watch anything if you wanted to. Shopping and restaurants are close by. Ask for recommendations.
