We ended up here after falling for the taxi / travel agent con and it cost us about £5 a night extra in commission . The guys are just trying to earn a few quid, but its better to deal direct with the hotel and haggle at the check in desk . We paid about £22 for the room, per... More

We stayed in this hotel which is a bit out of town bit close to the taxi boat ferry. The rooms are ok but we were on the 4th floor.... No elevator, not fun with luggage. You have to pay for wifi and the front desk personnel are rude. During the night there is construction on the hotel and it... More

The basic rule of thumb is you get what you pay for, I was tied to this area for a conference but did not want to pay the Sheraton price, but nevertheless, it was not overall good value . The rooms are clean and small, hot water and basic breakfast, so that is fine and if you are never in... More

rooms are a nice size, they are ageing but clean and more than adequate. breakfast is solid with fresh fruit assorted local food and even bacon and eggs. pool is fantastic and for tourists everything is within reach, even the main railway station is just a brisk 25 minute walk away. there are a multitude of tourist attractions close by.

Ruined last night in Bangkok.Should have went back to my first hotel the Novotel.

The Swan is ideal for those who want a budget hotel that is close to the Oriental pier. However, my single room had no natural daylight and felt claustrophobic. The hotel is clean and the breakfast is adequate. It is very much 'You get what you pay for'.

Well worth considering for a short or long stay in Bangkok. Convenient location for river trips and the mass transit train into the shopping district. Room was 'no-frills' but adequate, and breakfast buffet was pretty good. All this for $40/day for two people...great value

The family room was quite cheap and that's why I decided to stay in this hotel (for the second time already). The hotel could definitely use a renovation, but for example the pool was really nice (except for a little, almost cute rat that scared the hell out of me one night ;) ). I also reallyvliked the breakfast and... More

The hotel was very clean, including the swimming pool which I noticed was cleaned and chlorinated regularly. The breakfast was reasonably good with cereal,toast, fruit juice,tea and coffee available as well as Thai food. Computers are available in the lobby for internet access at a reasonable charge. At the price, this hotel is reasonable value for money albeit somewhat unexciting... More

It's clean but a bit rundown & tired. We got duped into booking in here after a taxi driver took us to what appear to be a Tourist Advisory Service in Bangkok, turns out it was really a sort of travel agency that booked us in at the Swan Hotel & charged us a hidden commision. The told me it... More
