“good for short stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

Location is a bit off the beaten track, albeit geographically close to Phaya Thai airport express station. Took a metered taxi from station to hotel for 37 baht. Hotel is modern, quiet, clean with good facilities, comfortable room and friendly staff. Good breakfast to set you up for the day. Bell boy very helpful for local information and driving you in hotel tuk tuk to main road locations. After that just a short walk to nearest sky train station - Ratchathewi - for exploring the city, eg Jim Thompson house + access to river for water taxis and visiting temples, or a long tail boat along the canals. Opposite the hotel on the other side of the railway line is Suan Phakkad Palace which is well worth a visit, basically a museum in various buildings within a pleasant landscape - check with bell boy for best way to get there. Good shopping/markets and a variety of well priced eating establishments available within a 10 to 15 minute walk from the hotel. Did eat in the hotel restaurant for one evening, lacked atmosphere but the meal was fine. At back of the hotel is a small supermarket - very handy for numerous items, snacks and drinks (for room fridge) etc. Overall, good value short stay base for exploring/visiting Bangkok.

Stayed in this hotel for 4D3N. Took us some time to find the hotel from Phaya Thai station (Airport Rail Link station). According to the hotel staff, there's no shortcut to the station so be prepared to lug your luggages for about 15min at least to locate the hotel. Recommend to take a tuk tuk or taxi from the station in. If going by meter, likely will cost less than 50baht.

Hotel room is clean and new. There's even multi-plug socket on the dressing table which saved me the hassle of plugging in my international travel adapter. We ended up with a room on a smoking floor as the one on the non-smoking floor was not ready when we checked in. Surprinsingly, the room didn't smell of smoke. Wi-fi signal is great in the rooms and cafe/lobby. There's also a computer in the lobby for guests to use. There's complimentary tuk tuk service to the main road (soi 15) and Pratunam Market/Baiyoke which makes it more convenient to get in and out of the hotel.

However, the towels and floor mats seem to have been either used umpteen times or washing machine is too strong that sides may be torn. One bad experience during our stay was about the missing 2 complimentary bottled water in our room. After we came back from a half day tour on our 3rd day, we realised that our room did not have 2 complimentary bottled water so we informed the front desk on our way out again. The front desk staff then communicated with Housekeeping, who insisted he/she placed 2 bottles in our room but we couldn't find it!! She even suggested we go with Housekeeping to check together! We couldn't be bothered as bottled water only costs less than 10baht outside!! Why would we even bother to try and get more?! When we came back at night, there still wasn't any bottled water!! In order to attract more guests, they should've just given them to us!

Just a note, book the hotel massage early (preferably on the day you arrive) as it's fully booked pretty fast. Didn't get to try the massage but there are a few along Soi 15. Number One is GREAT!

This a great place to stay on a short term basis (2 or 3 days) but not long term. long term stay can get boring and the quality of the breakfast meal gets worst the longer you stay. Some days the food is cold and the quality is poor.

The staff are excellent and very helpful. The two female receptionists (Miss Benjama Fern & Miss Pornthip) speak English very well and most helpful at all times. The cleaning staff are the best and the bellboy is very, very helpful in taking you places that Tuk Tuk can go. By law the Tuk Tuk is only allowed to travel to the main road.

I would recommend this hotel because of price, staff and management. I do not recommend the quality of the food after a long term stay.

Room Tip: Floors 6 thru 8 for quietness, bot no good view.

Greay stay excellent staff, good buffet breakfast, special package toke from the web site very convenient. Room was new air condition perfect, must be know how to use. I read some have problem but dep. If y push a bottom night use. Staff friendly honestly and professional, for go to bts train y may use a short way 3 min walk in the middle of some Souk but sure, take a light for coming back. Good location for panteep and pratunama, with 80 bath you can go by tax to silom or china area, 1 way. Every was excellent, the smart of sales manager and his professionality was excellent. Just only suggest we was 3and the facility was for 2 pp.

Room Tip: Triple deluxe is with comfortable extra bed.

great location and not overly crowded swimming pool, reasonably priced (if you book through the internet rather than show up - then price shoots 100%)

We found this hotel excellent value for money. It provides comfortable and well equipped rooms with free WiFi. The breakfast which is included in the price was varied catering for all tastes (yogurt, salad, fresh fruit, eggs, fried rice, cereals etc.). We also found the restaurant food excellent and eat here a number of nights.
In all we stayed 5 nights in this hotel and during our stay we found the staff helpful and courteous.
As other reviews point out the location of the hotel is not the best. However, it is close to Sky Train both for direct access to the airport and to the city. True you will have to walk from the nearest Sky Train station about 10 minutes but, and we have done it every night, we never felt that it was too far or that, in the evenings, we were threatened walking through the small alleys (they are well lit).

the hotel is very nice with a very good breakfast, tough the location of this hotel is poor.
the hotel is very far from the BTS station (approx 1 km), while there is a free tuk tuk service which takes to the main road you still have to walk for a few minutes from the drop point.
taking into considration most of the day you will be shopping the location is not so important untill night when you want to go out and hang out.
there are NO night life near the hotel and the location is inside between dark streets (tough not scary)
overall, there are many hotels in bangkok in better locations but this one is not a bad option at all.
