“Sukhumvit, Soi Cowboy, shopping...this is the place to stay for all that.”
Reviewed 18 December 2011

Overall, excellent stay. Highly recommended. The Tai-Pan Hotel was booked spur of the moment using Agoda at 5 pm, knowing I would arrive there after an AirAsia flight, leading to an arrival at 1 am. The price was right. For two nights there, the total cost was $105.00. I had to admit I was a bit concerned about the “seediness” factor of the hotel, just being a five minute walk (perhaps less) to Soi Cowboy. But I was relieved to not get that vibe at all.

Tip: When telling the cab where you want to go, tell him Soi Cowboy. My cabbie did not know where the Tai-Pan was, and yours might not either. Once you get in the vicinity of Soi Cowboy, you will likely see the signs for the hotel. If not, you are close enough you could walk.

Check-in was straightforward. I took less than 10 minutes from the time I walked into the lobby until I was unzipping my bags in the room.

Rooms are huge, maybe 10 m x 6 m. About double the size of what I have experienced in my other Thailand hotel stays. In the room, there is a complimentary robe with slippers, a great touch after a long, sweaty journey from Chiang Mai. They give you two complimentary bottles of Chang water. Plenty of other goodies in the mini-bar too. Wi-fi is free, had no trouble connecting. Awesome view from the “bay-style” windows, that allow you to be surrounded on three sides by glass. From my comfortable air-conditioned room, I could see the girls on the street touting massages outside their parlors. Right in the middle of Sukhumvit, you can’t get any more central than this.

On the nightstand, there is a “switchboard” that allows you to control all the lights in your room. I had never seen this before, probably the most unique thing about the room.

I did not check out the pool, rec room, or anywhere else, but I would expect it to be fine. If there were any negatives I have, it would be that the breakfast seems a bit overpriced for Thailand (175 baht with discount), the in-house massages are expensive too (about 900 baht), when you could get one as good just a few steps out the front door for about 200 baht. Finally, the décor seemed a bit dated. Would stay there again for sure.

Room Tip: Any would be fine.

I spent a very relaxing 2 nights here at the end of my trip. It was a perfect way to finish my vacation. It is very well located with easy access to BTS , shopping and eating. The staff was competent and professional, as well as friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and well appointed and had complimentary wifi. For me, the number 1 reason to go back would be how quiet the rooms are. Although you can look down on busy Asoke road, you can shut your curtains and enjoy one of the quietest rooms in Bangkok. I had nothing but positive experience here and looking forward to returning.

My 14 nights stay here was great. Location is very good if you know Sukhumvit as heart of Bangkok. It's very close to the Sukhumvit MRT Station and the Asoke BTS Station, and is next to a street full of bars (Soi Cowboy). The room was very spacious with free internet in the room and very clean. The staff were very friendly and a food is great.

Got the deal for this hotel from Ensogo. Considering the service, the room, the location, and the food, we totally got more than what we paid for. It's two blocks from the Sukhumvit MRT Station and the Asoke BTS Station so commuting wasn't a problem. The neighborhood is quiet and Terminal 21 mall was near. The daily buffet breakfast is amazing. The staff are nice and helpful and the rooms are clean and well-maintained. Room service was fast and the food are reasonably priced. I will definitely stay again.

Nice hotel - small, but within walking distance of almost everything and very well located on the Sukhumvit Soi. Beds were a little funnily placed though and we had to shift them around to be comfortable. Mattresses were a little hard but overall, very quiet hotel, no noise. Food tasted good, spa facility was adequate with only one therapist but a good one.
