The rooms are large and come with a large fridge. Has free wifi internet. Aircon works well and is quiet. The area around is very busy traffic wise in peak periods. Plenty of great eateries around. Close walk to Lumpinee MRT The gentleman at reception is very helpful and is simply a quiet man who can be quite friendly. I... More

Penguin House is a fantastic little place to stay on Soi Sribumpen. My partner and I took the "Deluxe" double room, and considering the price, we were amazed at the results: a huge room, sparsely but tastefully furnished, complete with a large window, two chairs, and even a full-sized fridge. We peeked into the other 'regular' rooms, and although they... More

The price was very good (I paid about 900 baht - although I am unsure if any discount was applied owing to the mess up with my original hotel). The... More

Nice place with nice rooms, well serviced by local restaurants and massage parlour. Taxi ride 80baht to Silom, 400 Inc highway from airport. Terribly miserable front desk attendant-have stayed s number of times and he rarely has a good day! A smile would suffice. Can find more central and same standard for same/little more money.
