We arrived the day before Songkran late at night and were able to get settled into our room quite quickly. We had a room facing the street with a balcony. We heard some noise the first night but then the next night it was a bit noisier. We didn't mind as we wanted to enjoy the sights and sounds of... More

There were two good things about the hotel - location & breakfast. Hotel Royal? Maybe 20 years ago this was true. Room was small and looked like a dorm. It faced the street and it was impossible to close the window completely which resulted in city noise not letting you sleep. Also, when neighbors wanted to use shower or water... More

We were at the pool and just got in the water. Staff came up and made us leave. (Not very nicely either) and we are staying 4 nights. Said it closes at 7pm. Information on the card says that the pool closes at 10 pm and the bar (which there isn't one) is open until 11pm.

We were pleased to find this conveniently located hotel at a difficult time of day. The room was OK the bathroom was lavishly appointed 30 years ago, but beginning to look a little tired. The staff were polite but not warm. There was NO computer to use except, with a little reluctance, in the back office. The staff weren't much... More

Oh dear - noisy inside and out. You have to run the gauntlet of rough sleepers to get into the hotel. Staff are very unhelpful. You have to pay for very slow Internet. I wasn't brave enough to try the pool. On the plus side the location is very convenient. Breakfast opened too late for me as I had an... More

This is NOT the first impression you should have of Bangkok Thailand... booked this hotel via Bangkok Marathon organization since it's close to the start/finish point beside Grand Palace, but had no idea this hotel is so bad... outside the entrance there were homeless people sleeping on the street, inside lobby the smell is bad, the whole place looks empty,...

Been here for 3 nights. Safe spot and nearby train station and mall. Very fascinating they call the town here Japanese Town. The hotel provided free shuttle service on a tuk-tuk. The breakfast spread yummeh! Overall a wonderful hotel with reasonable price. Recommended!

Walking distance to Khao San road and other major attractions. The interior seems a bit tired, I can imagine it was quite grand in its day, wide sweeping staircase and large foyer. The room was average but clean, air-con just about worked. Pleasant staff, value for money!

As a regular visitor to Bangkok I was expecting the warm welcome that Thai people are renowned for alas I was wrong. My wife had booked the hotel for a three day break as a treat for me as she knew I wanted to visit the Emerald Bhudda Temple. we arrived early evening and greeted by a polite doorman, it... More
