“The owner is the hotel not friendly at all”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

Bad customer service . The hotel is managed by French . Hate their attitude so much . Not friendly at all . Even we greet them when we go out from hotel but they seem like never bother us . The lobby is dark. Swimming pool not longer available and closed . We stay here for almost a week . We can't feel the warm welcome from the owner .

Fantastic hotel! Super clean and excellent location right near Terminal 21 and the metro. My only complaint is that it was full when we tried to extend another 2 nights! Our fault obviously and we won't make that mistake again. This is by far the best hotel we've stayed in for this price range. The staff was friendly, the rooms and bathroom were very clean and modern. We will definitely choose the Darjelling for any future trips to Bangkok.

In this hotel I have spent 4 nights and I cannot complain about anything. Cozy rooms, high-speed internet (everywhere else I have tried internet was really slow comparing to this one), reasonable price and the best location - next to it metro, sky train, shopping malls, the main crossroad, thus you can reach every point of Bangkok easily from this hotel.

Staff is helpful - they have helped me with maps, choosing what to do in Bangkok and what to see. They even provided me with information about the islands which afterwards I have visited.

To sum up, I have got cozy rooms and have got even more than I could get for that price. And there is no need to have a luxury hotel to enjoy your staying in Bangkok.

Stayed there for 2 weeks in mid November 2013. Completely satisfied with what I got for what I paid. Great place to stay, as it is located just next to Asoke station and is literally in the middle of Bangkok nightlife. Having said that it's quiet enough inside the hotel to get yourself a good sleep on a good bed. Friendly and helpful staff with the directions and all that. They're also offering biking tours, which for me was one of the best experiences in Bangkok. Excellent. Will definitely book with them the next time I'm in Bangkok.

Room Tip: Only seen two rooms, both on the second floor, both got windows. which suits me well, can't tel...

1. An on-demand hot water heater in the bathroom. The system they have is the older style, centrally sourced, and it seemed the hot water heater was just not up to the task. Taking a shower was always an adventure. Sometimes scalding, most of the times no hot water at all. Some people prefer cold water showers and if you're one of them, this is the place for you.
2. An upgrade to their wifi. I was on the 2nd floor so you would think the signal would be strong there. Wrong. Every few minutes the signal would drop out, aborting any downloads and killing my VPN hookup. Very frustrating. If wifi is unimportant then again, same as above. They really need either a stronger router or a service package with bigger bandwidth,

I do want to say some positives. The staff at the front desk were friendly and accommodating. The price was great for this part of town - just minutes from the BTS. The room I had (with a window) was very bright and comfy.

If they'd just work on those 2 things they'd have a great little place on their hands.

One more thing. The bathroom mirror really needs more light. Grooming in shadow is not good for the complexion.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a window. I peeked in one that did not and it looked a bit gloomy in there.

We had a great time with our family in this quiet and friendly hotel. People working there are so kind and willing to help, thank you! We had a good rest during the busy time in BKK in this hotel, because the rooms are cozy and beds are very good. You can get a great cup of coffee very cheap and enjoy it on the terras while planning the day. The location of this hotel is perfect. I am staying there next time as well!

You could't ask for a better price and service! Hotel is located near Asok station what is really comfortable, staff was helpful, the price was reasonable! In addition, very clean and quiet hotel! I'll certainly book again.
