This hotel is right in the middle of Chinatown, it's a nice hotel. Just what u need to sleep in. It's not spectacular by any means. The main bad point was the staff hardly speak any English and it's very frustrating. You just end up giving up in the end. It's in a very busy area. Watch out for the tut tut drivers they try and take you round places to get commition. We fell for it one day and it ruined our whole day. One tip. If you are visiting the temples NEVER believe anyone who tells you something is closed. Everything is open from 8.30-1800

I was immediately greeted with a mouldy smell when I entered the hotel. The place needed more lighting especially along the corridor leading to the rooms. Furniture in the room badly needs renovations. By the way, there is no free wifi in this hotel.

Not really that good a standard: worn out, not especially clean, food mediocre.
Good location though: close to royal palace & things
The bell boy ordered us a taxi to the airport that was a death trap: so old, such bad condition, bad brakes, a real danger to life & limb. Hotel didn't respond when I compained!
No room safes, only central security boxes in lobby which is always a pain.
The bar on the top floor was good: empty & waiters surprised we were there but great views.
All in all, there places that are better value for money

With most rooms located on the top floors, chances are you will have a great view of the city. Large and comfy room, lots of hot water (compared to many other hotels in Asia), lots of storage space. Not a new hotel but very well kept. Large lobby. Extensive and inexpensive buffet breakfast (if not included in your room rate), including made to order eggs and many Asian options. (There are no other restaurants in the area serving noodle-less breakfast.) Hotel employees are polite and always smiling. Within walking distance of khao san road, many impressive wats, the river. Thieves market next door. Adjacent to Chinatown. Great rates available through various websites.

I used this hotel as a base to explore Chinatown and beyond. The room had a safe to keep my valuables in, was pretty big and everything was working OK. It's a large hotel so don't expect any personal touch. Obviously, there are dozens hotels like that in Bangkok. What I liked was the view from my room (the building is quite high) plus the little pool and sundeck on the roof. Unfortunately I was charged extra for using this but for one time that was OK. The price for the room seemed adequate.

This was the first hotel I stayed at when I arrived in Bangkok. A terrible introduction to the country.

Although on first inspection the room looked nice and large with an amazing view, the room smelt mouldy. A friend from my tour staying in another room said her room smelt of cigarette smoke.

When I went to have a shower I had to pull back the curtains that were covered with mould. The shower had bad water pressueand once again the tiles were covered in mould.

I didn't have anywhere booked after my tour, so decided to bunk in with two ladies from my tour who were staying extra nights thinking it would be cheaper. Wrong.

They said for my own room they would charge me 2,000 baht. Unfortunately they wrote the price on the back of their room sales sheet, where everyone else was being charged 500-600 baht. Sitting back and watching, they gave other people cheaper rates, and some more expensive.

It ended up costing me 500 for a pull out matress that was so bad I could feel the springs from the metal pullout.

One of the ladies had a problem with her leg, and needed a doctor. We called downstairs and the receptionist told us to call her Insurance company. We called them and they said they will call the hotel to save us money on phone fees.
When the insurance company called the hotel, apparently no one spoke English.
They ended calling her back on her mobile. Would be a shame if anything serious happened!

Another thing - Because it is in Chinatown, there are a lot of Taxis that refuse to give you a lift due to the congestion of traffic there.

This hotel is out of date and over priced. Being constantly ripped off by your hotel is draining, and in a part of town that some taxis wont go to, it can be a nuisance.

Stay aware from this hotel!
