This is not really a hotel. It is more like a serviced apartment / upscale Guesthouse. I went there first on my first backpacking trip through asia in 2008. I decided to spend my last days in Penguin house, because I had some money left (I used to stay in dirt cheap places before that) In 2014 I came back... More

I've stayed at Penguin House on several occasions. Rooms are comfortable and very clean. There is a daily maid service. The man at the desk is always very helpful if you ask otherwise a quiet but friendly man. Speaks excellent English. There is now a café on the patio of Penguin House called "Flow". Run by a very nice guy... More

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

I actually stayed here by accident when the hotel I had booked into had completely lost my booking and had to move me around in order to get me accommodated! 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.
