Merlin Lodge is neither the typical Airbnb, nor a typical small guest house, but something in between. Located 20 minutes SW of the main shopping and tourist areas, it is immediately next to a BTS (skytrain) station and has bus stops both ways, just outside the door. The manager, Ken, and his daughter are currently renovating the whole place, so... More

First of all, I would like to say that the owner, Ken, was an excellent host. He was very helpful by asking all of our questions, giving us hints and tips about Bangkok, and generally being a nice person to chat to. The location of the place is also great, right outside Punnawithi BTS Station, making access to downtown Bangkok... More

I stayed in this hotel in May 2013 for 5 days. I was little worried as in the begining, because I was landing bangkok in the early morning 3.00a.m. But hotel owner Ken was waiting for me in the airport. He promptly took me in that odd time to the hotel. My stay was very relaxed without any worries. It... More

The rooms were a good size, and it was generally a good location(right outside a subway stop, some small restaurants and a shopping center nearby) but the "cafe" isn't really a cafe and I didn't see a bakery, as was advertised. They didn't clean the room the five days we were there, which was a little strange. The noisy street... More

When I first arrived I was a bit disappointed because the website makes the hotel look way better than it really is. There is no minimart as it states in the website.
