The room I was allocated did not have a window it was in the centre of the building very dark and thee weren't even bright lights to compensate natural light. The WiFi was terrible and the chicken curry I ordered was very questionable. Concierge was rude and had to be asked several times to order taxis. Overall I would not... More

The facilities were decent, but beware of the bell hops! They kept propositioning my husband with girls and massage!! It felt very strange to have that happen right in front of your face! We booked through Agoda.com and was fully paid but the hotel still charged us $83.96 even though there were no residual balance when we left! Waiting to... More

I had already stayed at this hotel once in 2003. At the time, the rooms (deluxe river view) looked great and I was pleased with my stay there... However, that was 11 years ago and the hotel was already a bit old-fashioned at the time... I now live in Thailand and decided to book a room in this hotel again... More

Long version: I came to Bangkok for surgery and planned to stay here almost 2 weeks. I only stayed one night and cancelled the remaining days. Nobody picked me up at the airport, as... More

We had two rooms (travelling on business) for 2 weeks. One room had no air conditioning, a door that did not close properly and then all the whistles and noise from the bars across the way and the commuter boat. The other room had no hot water in the shower in spite of a visit from a plumber. Then there... More
