Areca Lodge is prominently located at the centre of Soi Diana Inn.
I Stayed for 2 weeks in the Lodge for the third time. The hotel is really fabulous.
The girls in the reception are very friendly and this also goes for the rest of the staff.
The rooms are very spacious and are very good cleaned every day. Every day fresh sheets and towels.
The hotel has 2 pools with free towels.
The restaurant is very good and not that expensive as I have seen in other hotels.
The hotel is girl friendly, only if you bring 2 girls, they charge you 300 Baht for the second lady.
I have stayed in many hotels in Thailand but the Lodge is the best value for money I have experienced. Prices: 1200 Baht for a standard and 1350 for a delux room. They also have 4 executive rooms for 2050 Baht a night.
Booked again for next year. I can't wait.

Stayed there for a couple of nights and agree with the comments in your listing, but rooms are now B2300 at this time of year, and a second girl is now B500. First one is still free.

Polleke is quite right. I always book in my visitors there.
The location on Soi Diana allows quick access to many services, shops and entertainment venues.
It's good to book in advance - best to get someone you know here to do it for you as it is easier to give the astute cashier lady cash than try with internet transfers.
