I was recommended this hotel by a friend and booked for my first night after travelling to Thailand. The hotel is lovely and clean, in a quiet back alley though a great location. I moved on only because a hotel is not the place to meet someone when you are travelling alone.

If you want a central location right next to the entrance of the old city, with excellent service, clean and comfortable rooms, great breakfast and easy links to anywhere then this is the place to stay.

We have stayed at Portico 21 twice now and both times have been very impressed. The rooms are spacious, airconditioned and quiet and have a mini fridge. The room was very clean. It is set off the main road, which means it is much quieter than some other hotels, but is very centrally located. The lady who runs Portico 21...

We just checked out of Portico 21 and enjoyed ourselves so much that we jumped on Tripadvisor to give it a rave review! The hotel itself is boutique style and although it isnt flash, its comfortable, clean and has all required amenities. Best of all its tucked on a back street and is no more than a 10 minute walk...

This hotel was very centrally located, but down a small lane, so it was a very conveniently located peaceful oasis. Still, the taxi driver had no problem finding it. The decor was chic, modern and beautiful. The room design was well thought out, comfortable, and all the neccessities were in excellent working order. Excellent free in-room wi fi. The staff...

My husband and I stayed at Portico 21 in November 2010 for several nights. Portico is owned by a great family that is incredibly hospitable and helpful. My husband was ill when we stayed there - they helped us identify a local hospital, and arranged transportation for us so he could visit the doctor. When we got back from a...

The location is good, but if you also want the night life, there are more choices around the night market area. What you get is what youd pay, so nothing much to write about. I stayed 5nights at the summer peak of Thai. No elevators to the 4th floor, when coming back from outside its quite hard, and have to...

We extended our stay here as we loved it so much. Family run, friendly hotel. Well decorated and exceptionally clean. The owners/ staff were really welcoming and provided excellent service throughout our stay. A good value for money hotel.
