Love this hotel, the iconic stairs, the backdrop, the lobby especially. The breakfast don't have much choices, but acceptable since the quality is quite good. the bad experiences only annoying mosquitos when having some beverages at Roca. I can't stand it more than 30 minutes.

Artotel has a very unique place to stay. small cozy room and art everywhere. I even enjoy sitting at the lobby because of its art. Great foods at the restaurant and friendly staff at the front desk makes me feel comfortable staying here..

Room design was unique and clean with firm King Koil bedding, 32" Panasonic LCD, Daikin air con and... More

Good value and clean but too much emphasis on looking cool instead of giving customers attention to detail. Three nights I had dirty and stained floor towels. I threw them into the corridor eventually. Kettle broken but replaced next day. The room corridors are not carpeted or have wall paper, therefore they are incredibly noisy at night time. Even when...

I stayed here during a business trip. The hotel had wonderful interiors and each room has its uniquely designed walls. The room was not big, but very bright and comfortable. I enjoyed my stay as this was a welcome break from the monotony of hotel chains.

Friendly staff, full of art, clean room and bathroom, comfy bed. Located near to sutos and ciputra world (by cab). Breakfast is limited choices of menu, taste was average. Very noisy, you can hear people screaming, talking, walking at the hotel corridor, also noise from the traffic outside, mosque in the morning.
