Don't expect lots from this budget place. It's a decent money to value proposition. The rooms are small and furniture is sorta old. Location is truly magnificent - near skytrain terminal station, a few feet away from MBK and Siam Square and other places of business. Far away from Kao San road. Another amazing proposition is shamelessly cheap price to... More

One of my go-to places in Bangkok. Old fashioned and simple. Don't expect too much. Very handy for shopping - a walk away from MBK, Siam Square and Jim Thompson Museum. It is right beside the Arts and Cultural Center too where on the ground floor is a lovely little coffee shop, and the library downstairs is a perfect place... More

Great place to stay if you're on a budget and don't want to be near Kao San rd. it's next to the sky train which is a great way to get around and nearby buses service all the main tourist sites at about 13 baht. The owners were a great help giving us local transport directions to places, their drinks... More

I have been staying at Pranee many times over the past 10 years and always find it clean , the management efficient and staff honest.These are very important factors when travelling..It is unpretentious and the location is so central that I always return to stay here again..I look forward to my next stay here,I am always made most welcome.

I'm not too picky, just need a place to sleep and taking a bath, so this place is perfect, because with less than 500b/nite you get a quite big room, shower ,fan room in siam area, just 1 minute walk to 7/11, 2 min to BTS ,3 min to MBK/BACC, and 5-10 min to siam square/siam paragon. eventhough the hotel...

As I get older, it's getting harder to stay at the Pranee Building. It's old. I stayed in 2005, and returned five years later, and not a single thing had changed, including, I imagine, the sheets. No updating. No maintenance. It's a worn down, slightly better than a backpacker-style place with good (though loud) air conditioning (but not in every... More

Room price Room with fan 350 baht Room with air 400 baht For 2-3 persons ,... More

The location is really the main draw to this hotel. The accommodations themselves are very basic, Thai-style - 500 baht per night. If you don't plan to spend lots of time in your room then this is perfect. If you're expecting luxury and amenities, then this probably isn't the place for you. The rooms were clean, neat, and had hot... More

I stayed here several times over the years while I lived in Thailand. The English-speaking staff were always friendly and remembered me, and I liked that it felt like a family business. It's a no frills kind of place, but clean and more than adequate as a place to crash while visiting the city. It's very conveniently located right off... More
