Addendum. I received a confrontory response to one of the members in regard to my negative impression of the Penthouse Hotel. The owner of the Penthouse Hotel discounts any comments about the cleanliness issue of this establishment. My observations come an onsite visit in June of this year. I was staying at the Dynasty Inn on Soi 13 which is just down the street from the Penthouse Hotel.
The idea of 'ONE STOP SHOPPING' is very appealing to me ! Consider, you can meet, greet and connect with your lovelies downstairs, and without the embarrassment or hassle of motorbiking your way across town, you just adjorn upstairs for the carnal festivities ! I am not objecting to the higher lady drink cost or the high barfine as the convenience far outweighs the toll.
However, upon my visit, I requested seeing low to high end accommodation with the approval of the front desk staff during the daylight hours . My sister has several cats and I was keenly aware of a similar kitty aroma as we toured. Kitty litter and kitty urine has its own pervasive stench. Now, the rooms themselves were impressive, practical and WILD ! It looked like I was visiting a hotel in UGANDA but with sexual accoutrements, such as lubes, condoms, dildos and most conspicuously, sex swings...thankyou ! I was most interested in the accompanying rectangular pool overhanging the soi , party to the higher end rooms. My next door neighbor has a well used swimming pool, here in the states, and I am well aware of all that is necessary to maintain it with frequent visitors and the many kiddies who are known to poop regularly in the presence of H2O. He is constantly checking the water, and its chemistry along with frequent visits from his pool maintenance company. He keeps a log of test results that our city requires for all residential pools.
Now for my observations...the pool was FILTHY ! There was dark debri in several areas notable in the daylight. I asked if there is a log of water testing and a cleaning schedule. The accommodating receptionist, knew nothing of this. Considering the goings on expected on a regular basis in the pool, there is the question of urinary and fecal material being a problem. Do you relish the idea of ending up in Bangkok Hospital with a urinary tract infection, pink eye, oral fungal infection, rectal abcess, etc ? I DONT !!!
I have noted the owner respond with righteous indignation on other websites for those that have questioned the cleanliness of his establishment. To you sir, I respond, I WAS THERE AND SAW ( and smelled ) WHAT I SAW !!!
On the other hand, as I mentioned, I love the idea of your Hotel ! If you can post, online, a pool cleaning schedule and lab results
from an independent facility, ie professional pool cleaning company, I would most certainly reconsider. Also most people are very turned off by homes or hotels that allow animals to roam freely and contaminate bedding , food and everything else ! Get rid fo the CATS !!!
