First the positives. Friendly staff, biggish pool and convenient location. Unfortunately it all goes rather downhill when you step inside the rooms. My 'deluxe' was decidedly dingy with old, very tired furniture. My bathroom was infested with mosquitos and I could not figure out how to get hot water throughout my stay. On this basis I'd find it hard to... More

I was planning to have a nice sunday birthday brunch... First, forget about the shabby plastic mats covering a weathered pretending-to-be-white floor in the entrance - and head to the pool area. Don't get fooled when you see the "brunch" menu : it looks generous... but expect to eat common fried / BBQ food - just the kind of common... More

The staff at the ocean are most likely the nicest people you will ever meet. They will go out of there way to accommodate you and always have a smile on there face. I felt at home here and throughout my 30 day stay in Thailand, I kept coming back. I found the rooms clean, very comfortable and reasonably priced... More

There is Pool Party every sunday and Lady Night Every Friday (free bar for girls from 8pm - midnight on friday). good music and not crowded. But the pool area is quiet small. near Bts Prompong, The emquatia mall and Benjakitti Park.

I have stayed at this hotel several times when it was owned by Herman and was a quiet oasis with a vaguely african theme which included a thatched roof surrounding the pool giving lots of shade. A little quirky and old fashioned but people loved it. It was never 4star but it was unique. Now under new ownership the pool... More

I have been to bangkok 6 times and I regret not having found this place sooner. I LOVE ocean for so many reasons. Firstly, it's unique. It's hot here right? Especially for us foreigners so to be able to go to a bar that has a pool, that you can use as you please and have people serve you? Paradise.... More

We booked it for a week as I had business at Asoke. Chose this hotel as I visited before for a pool party and it was nice. However, I am in shocked right now to know that they rate themselves 4 stars. Me personally think it is barely even 3, I would say 2 stars max. It said they had... More

Where do I even begin. There was blood on the duvet (not to mention its just an unwashed, smelly, stained duvet inner without a sheet fitted..), broken air-conditioning units in both rooms we booked that leaked all over the wall and floor, a broken shower that floods the entire bathroom and cigarette burns in the bed are just a few...

Honestly, I was expecting a little more class from this place. I won't this was a bad hotel, but for the price I know of better places around the area. I stayed here on a lark. I wanted to see if this would be a good place to stay for future visits. The staff seems nice enough. When I checked... More
