The Library Review

This place is so fun that it's worth a visit for its amusingly hip decor—check out the white figures reading books on the lawn, inviting you to lounge as well. Rooms have modern furniture like long, low tables, and are quite comfortable. The beachside pool has a red tile base, making it fit in perfectly with the red, black, and white theme that's so prevalent here. The Page restaurant also merits a special trip.

    The Library Review

    Terrible Experience with The Library & Splendia. I am the victim of Splendia's Bait and Switch policy and fraudulent business practices. I booked a trip at the Library hotel in Thailand through Splendia. There were 2 rooms listed, suite and studio. They state on the site-NR rate and in parenthesis non -refundable, however under their Cancellation policies & Fees. it is CLEARLY STATED FREE OF CHARGE UNTIL A SPECIFIC DATE. Cancellation policies & fees Free of charge until 18-Mar-12(14h) From 18-Mar-12(14h) to 21-Mar-12(14h): 1st night No-show, from 21-Mar-12: 1st night Go-show: 100% of the total reservation (applies to 'early departure' when guests stay at least 1 night). The cancellation policy is applied based on the hotel's local time (GMT+7). When I went to cancel prior to the dates listed and contrary to the stated policies of the web site I was told it was not possible because after I paid I received a confirmation that this was not refundable. This is direct conflict of Splendia's stated policy on their website FREE OF CHARGE- before one pays. It is a complete bait and switch, fraud and deception. I spoke to one of their agents in Spain and she even admitted it was confusing. Confusing is not an excuse for deceiving nor bait and switch. I have lodged complaints wit the FTC in the States as well as the Governors office in the State of Florida of Consumer Protection. I strongly suggest avoiding Splendia and The Library Hotel for dishonest business practices.
