We stayed at this hotel for two nights before catching our flight to Cambodia. On booking the hotel we got a special offer that included free pickup from the airport and were met at arrivals and taken to the hotel which was meant it a nice relaxed start to our holiday. Hotel was clean and the rooms were a good size with everything we needed. Staff at the hotel provided us with a map and told us how to get in to the city using the Skytrain (Very easy). Overall would recommend this hotel for a short stay.

Stayed 6 nights. It is a small hotel. The hotel room and bathroom are very clean. Bed is very comfortable. Staff are polite. Security is good – need to use room key card to access the lift. Coffee/tea making facility available in the room. Walking distance, i.e 5 to 6 minutes to Wongwian Yai BTS station (the last station in the Silom line). It’s easy to get a taxi just outside the hotel. Breakfast was fine eventhough not a big selection – you can choose one out of 3 breakfast - plus fruits, coffee/tea, cakes, buns, yogurt etc. We got packed breakfast on one day when we left early for our tour to Ayuthaya. We paid 1300 baht per night. The hotel provided free airport transfer to and from the airport. There are no restaurants nearby. However if you are bold you can try the street food or the food in the market nearby which is open till late at night. We did try some of the street food. There’s a bakery and 7 eleven nearby.

Upon arrival very early in the morning we were immediately greeted with a glass of orange juice and were given a place to relax until our room was ready. The group of women behind the counter were extremely helpful and provided great advice for anything related to this city. Aoo was exceptionally helpful, accommodating and friendly. She helped us figure out our booking with the biggest smile ever! The room was very clean and had an amazing citrus smell, they have coffee and tea provided in the room which was a huge plus as well. It is also conveniently located near the BTS for transportation. I definitely recommend staying there if you're ever in Bangkok!

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights, the hotel room is new, clean and comfortable, the built in safe comes in handy to safekeep valuables. There is a good breakfast menu with having to make meal selection the night before, the hotel staff service is friendly and helpful, they even go out in the rain to stop taxi for us and explain to taxi driver our destination. You may make tickets bookings and trips arrangement and suggestions, we book our Siam Niramitm tickets and taxi to floating market from the hotel counter. The location is a bit out of major landmarks in Bangkok but the BRT station is about 10 min walk away to take us else where, there is a local market that sells foods and vegetables are also 10 walk away from the hotel. All in all, this is a great budget hotel that offers good value for the stay.

It is like any other loft, Nothing unique, clean rooms, nice employees but located in a very bad loud area. Great if you like to party and can cope with noise and drunk people. The overall rate is ok. Not that bad.

Read other reviews and you will realise that Bangkok Loft is immaculately clean, wonderfully comfortable and in a great position off the beaten track but only a 5 minute walk to the skytrain. Wonderful staff and overall service.

Five nights stay in Bangkok for first-time visitors made so much better by this hotel. I was skeptical during my research phase of this trip of so many great TA reviews and a price so good. After our stay I can report the praise is well deserved for the Loft. Free pickup from BKK, spotlessly clean rooms, great breakfast with cooked to order Thai and western options, and first rate service. The front desk staff were a great help as others have mentioned, and really made the differnce in our Bangkok experience. First visits can be hard to navigate, yet at the Loft the staff was knowledgable of tourist attractions, dining options, and most importantly transportation. The Loft is located in Thonburi west of the Chao Phraya River in a predominately residental area, away from the major tourist visited areas. Not really a problem if you are willing to use the easily navigable BTS/MRT transit system, which has a stop 5 minutes walk from the Loft. We like the low density local feel (mostly 4-5 story buildings as opposed to the high rise 'canyons' of other city areas) of the area and found with proper planning this location worked fine. Plus the BTS has great air-con! The Loft staff also found taxis for us, making certain the drivers knew our destination and we had a rough estimate of the proper fare and always handed us a return card with instructions in Thai, - very, very useful.

Our rooms, 206 and 209, were large, with huge king size beds, flat panel tv, room fridge, decent size toilet/shower room. Plenty of countertop space to setup things but little drawer space, no dresser, but had a decent size closet for hanging clothes. Bed, plllows, and linens/bed throw were very clean and appeared relatively new. Nice stuffed arm chair under the window for reading or TV watching. Nescafe and tea service with water boiler. The room views were not distinctive, 206 looked out over the rear alley, but had very little street noise, 209 faced the front street view with slightly more traffic noise. Security in the hotel was good. A room key was required to use the elevator and the stairwell doors, and the single hotel entrance from the street was directly in front of the lobby desk and a doorman was always on duty.

This was a good budget choice in a ctiy with many lodging options, but careful attention should be made to your location and availibility of transportation. Metered cabs are plentiful but get mired in the city traffic. And some city areas, mainly the Old City, are far from quicker public options for transport. The river taxi services the old city and is a very cheap, and easy option off the BTS line, with an full length ticket only 15 baht, but service was packed during peak hours, and waits long in between outside of rush hour and the entire river taxi service stops at 7:00 PM.
Again the location of the Loft proved valuable. As a side note about transportation, we had arrived from Siem Reap where 'tuk-tuks' were a cheap, reliable, trustworthy form of transport. In Bangkok they were a rip-off for tourists, unless you knew exactly where to go and how much it should cost, negotiated in advance. Most drivers wanted to pitch a certain shop and 'stop there first', or acted ignorant of pricing if you demanded only an exact destination. Mostly an air-con taxi was cheaper and just as fast, just remind the driver to start the meter.

The only downsides of the Loft were, well none really. If you do not to require turndown serice and the like, can handle a safe, local area, are willing to experience Bangkok mass transit, and don't require high-end pampering, the Bangkok Loft Inn is a great low-cost but quality option for a Bangkok tourist.

Room Tip: ask for a 'rear' room if you are a light sleeper or bothered by light traffic/city sounds.
