This hotel is ok for 1-2 nights, but after the novelty has worn off it's just another budget hotel with a lot of stairs! The location is good for shopping - handy for the Siam area, Terminal 21 etc. The BTS station is a 15-20 minute walk - ok for a couple of days but wearisome walking the same route...

Great, quirky hotel. If you read their website you know exactly what you get and you won't be disappointed. Loved it so much we changed our travel plans and went back to the Atlanta for 2 days to relax before flying home.

We reserved 2 rooms after reading reviews and hearing how quirky it is. When we checked in, and huffed and puffed up 4 enormous flights of stairs, breathing in the horrible smell of stagnant air, we checked out as fast as we could! Definitely not for us! The only reason I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 is because...

We've been coming to the Atlanta Hotel for the past 22 years. It is like stepping back in time. With the oldest hotel pool in Bangkok and the vintage lobby, no air conditioning in lobby or restaurant but fans keeping the areas cool, and one of the best restaurants in Bangkok, if you are vegetarian, anyway. We have been here...

A great hotel set in the 50s, which is a great contrast with the surrounding skyscrapers and Chit Lom area with megastores. The atmosphere is fantastic and refreshing, the staff was friendly and the pool area with garden was a great treat to relax after exploring Bangkok and to cool off. The rooms are decent, not the best although the...

This hotel has a well deserved reputation as a classic. The foyer and staircase are a visual delight, as are the reading room and restaurant.Rooms are basic and simple with comfortable beds,clean linen and original bathrooms from the 1950s-hot water is plentiful. No tvs or radios in rooms which is a pleasant change-and in the days of mobile phones etc...

very nice place for some, but ideal for me. rustic rooms, but excellent restaurant and good staff. Only (big) drawback is poor wifi. Wifi is getting faster and cheaper each year, but I don't think hotel has upgraded in several years. In cul-de-sac, so quiet location in good area.

My wife and I stayed here 17 years ago so we're so pleased to be able to revisit with our three children. This is not a cookie cutter westernized hotel but rather a quirky and out of the ordinary eclectic hotel. Just what we like. I realize it will not be everyone's idea of ideal accommodation but for us it...

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighbourhood Profile
Sukhumvit
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The historic Atlanta Hotel in Bangkok is, literally, untouched by modern pop culture. Walking into The Atlanta is like walking into another world, a long lost world. Most of what a guest sees and hears is old and classic - and authentic. ***The Atlanta Hotel in Bangkok, founded in 1952, features many superlatives, notably, the most photographed and oldest unaltered hotel lobby in Thailand, the first hotel swimming (diving) pool in Thailand, the largest selection of Thai vegetarian dishes in the world, a unique jungle-like garden right in the middle of Bangkok. The western menu features dishes made in the 1950s style - dishes that were on the original menu of The Atlanta, and prepared in the same way. ***The historic Atlanta Hotel in Bangkok has strict policies: sex-tourists, drug users, trouble-makers, and undomesticated people are not welcome. Any of these found on the premises are dealt with summarily. Because of these strict policies, The Atlanta Hotel has many detractors or even enemies. The Atlanta Hotel upholds its principles and policies without compromise. As of 1st September 2013, smoking will no longer be permitted anywhere on the premises. ***The Atlanta Hotel is also home to destitute cats and terrapins. Injured and abandoned cats seem to find their way to The Atlanta. Many are rescued from elsewhere. There are at the time of writing 36 cats. Some live in an enclosure on one side of the garden; others live in the staff section of the hotel. The terrapins are all rescued and saved from loss of habitat. There are at the time of writing 27 terrapins. They live well in and around the pond of the jungle-like garden of The Atlanta. Two staff are employed full-time to look after the animals, and visiting vets often volunteer their services, which The Atlanta welcomes. There is a celebrated drawing by a regular guest of The Atlanta of the lobby featuring cats lying on the round sofa. The caption reads (in Italian), "Cats, the real guests of The Atlanta." Guests of The Atlanta are typically animal lovers. *** The Atlanta, being at the bottom of a lane, has no passing trade. All our guests are either regulars or friends of regulars. The Atlanta has many returning guests who have been coming to The Atlanta since the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and, of course, much later. ... more   less
