Sometimes I don't know why I come back here! The accommodation side of it is a little depressing. But somehow I keep coming back! Don't expect luxury or style - rooms are clean but plain, outdated, a little backpackerish. I suppose I come back because it's cheap, and has a certain charm - the pride in its history and the...

The Atlanta hotel is different. If you like the standard hotelrooms, please avoid this place. If, however, you are like me and have a special place in your heart for the extraordinary, check out this hotel. You will find quirky and humourous texts all over the place. The rooms are without any kind of extra comfort, but what is offered,... More

If you are looking for all mod cons then definitely don't stay here, but if you are looking for a place with history and character then consider the Atlanta. It's true that the basic bedrooms are a bit dated but ours (we chose a suite which included a sitting area) was clean and comfortable enough. However, when you step into... More

Ive stayed in a LOT of hotels around the world and this would be one of my favorite. NO smoking on the premises. Excellent garden with tables. Massive hammocks Quiet yet central location Fan rooms with excellent ventilation when you open up the 2 doors. Great restaurant with Anong the manager who has worked here for 41 years...

I found out about this hotel from the Lonely planet guide, whose description: "You half expect Humphrey Bogart to trot down the stairs in this perfectly preserved mid-20th century lobby. The rooms are skeletal in comparison", is particularly apt. The entrance is immaculate old world design, complete with a writing desk and book ladder. Up stairs it's a bit of... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Atlanta in May 2014. Even though it might be seen as iconic and a walk back in time, the nostalgic experience does not compensate for the many deficiencies. The rooms are really, really basic. No decoration, no refrigerator, no drinking water supplied in the room, no tea or coffee making facilities, no television, no... More

I am writing this whilst sitting over tea and toast in the quirky restaurant of the Atlanta Hotel. Classical music is playing, the swimming pool beckons, I have just had a very comfortable night's sleep and am sorry that I must leave later today. It would be so lovely to sit in the garden with an iced drink.....ah well, this... More

I have been coming here for many years and love it today as much as I did on my first visit. The rooms are what they are. No TV, no fridge in fact no frills at all but spotlessly clean and air conditioned. The reason I love this hotel is is that it is a complete refuge from the chaos... More

I arrived at the Atlanta at about 2am after a delayed flight, and was glad to have arrived at all! The taxi driver didn't know the hotel and we drove around for a long while trying to find it, but once I arrived, the staff were helpful and attentive. I had been recommended this hotel as a unique experience from... More

The Atlanta is a Bangkok institution. Comfortable reasonably priced rooms. A very helpful staff from the man that works the desk to the restaurant and the travel desk, they all are very helpful. After a hot day of looking around Bangkok the pool is great. Even better are the other guests, I met people who have been visiting the Atlanta... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The historic Atlanta Hotel in Bangkok is, literally, untouched by modern pop culture. Walking into The Atlanta is like walking into another world, a long lost world. Most of what a guest sees and hears is old and classic - and authentic. ***The Atlanta Hotel in Bangkok, founded in 1952, features many superlatives, notably, the most photographed and oldest unaltered hotel lobby in Thailand, the first hotel swimming (diving) pool in Thailand, the largest selection of Thai vegetarian dishes in the world, a unique jungle-like garden right in the middle of Bangkok. The western menu features dishes made in the 1950s style - dishes that were on the original menu of The Atlanta, and prepared in the same way. ***The historic Atlanta Hotel in Bangkok has strict policies: sex-tourists, drug users, trouble-makers, and undomesticated people are not welcome. Any of these found on the premises are dealt with summarily. Because of these strict policies, The Atlanta Hotel has many detractors or even enemies. The Atlanta Hotel upholds its principles and policies without compromise. As of 1st September 2013, smoking will no longer be permitted anywhere on the premises. ***The Atlanta Hotel is also home to destitute cats and terrapins. Injured and abandoned cats seem to find their way to The Atlanta. Many are rescued from elsewhere. There are at the time of writing 36 cats. Some live in an enclosure on one side of the garden; others live in the staff section of the hotel. The terrapins are all rescued and saved from loss of habitat. There are at the time of writing 27 terrapins. They live well in and around the pond of the jungle-like garden of The Atlanta. Two staff are employed full-time to look after the animals, and visiting vets often volunteer their services, which The Atlanta welcomes. There is a celebrated drawing by a regular guest of The Atlanta of the lobby featuring cats lying on the round sofa. The caption reads (in Italian), "Cats, the real guests of The Atlanta." Guests of The Atlanta are typically animal lovers. *** The Atlanta, being at the bottom of a lane, has no passing trade. All our guests are either regulars or friends of regulars. The Atlanta has many returning guests who have been coming to The Atlanta since the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and, of course, much later. ... more   less
