The rooms are cleaned daily, and staff have quickly sorted out minor problems evident. The hotel is situated on Soi Sansabai, very close to Bangla Road, and so becomes a bit noisy between 2-3,...

Really a very good value because the room was large, wifi super fast, very cold A/C, ceiling fan, great shower, fridge, wardrobe, table and chairs.

So, I didn't stay here on my trip (biting my lip). I actually stayed across the street at the Yorkshire Inn for my 10 night 11 day holiday; however I must say the breakfast at the Orchid Residence was a tasty treat. Not only did the morning fare save my pocketbook, but the #11 with chili sauce tantalized my tastebuds... More
