I guess your talking about the one down Soi 4 (Nana) ---- Bloody dump checked out after one night and went back, tail between my legs, to the TaiPan on Soi 23. Like comparing chalk and cheeze, for the same money, if one is looking for accomodation near the night spots.

We have at least one service station here in Ban Dung that is fiddling its meters --- by at least 10%. It's the only place where I use more than 1 litre per 10kms.
