I’ve stayed at the Golden Banana last year and it was really nice, although I was in the older building, which had limited WiFi. However, I loved the location and general vibe and thought the staff was great, as was the pool, tuk-tuk drivers, and breakfast. Admittedly, I got a sort of funky room, but I decided not to care too much for $30 a night.

I don’t remember much about the surrounding hotels but they keep changing.

Now I have booked for a week at the Golden Banana and am starting to wonder if I ought to upgrade to the Rambutan? It’s $23 more a night, which for me is a lot. I can still cancel and rebook if I do it in the next 48 hours, so opinions really appreciated.

The upgrade idea is because it’s a romantic vacation vs. a solo one.

They’re owned by the same people, right? I think they have a few hotels down that alleyway?

Does anyone have any thoughts about the quality of the two compared with one another and if the upgrade between hotels presents a big difference?

I don’t have a head for these things. It’s my spouse who is more particular than I am.
