The first time I stayed at Myhotel was 2 years back, the hotel is still new, everything is alright from what I remember, thought of staying here again since the previous time when I stayed at Best Western just 0.25km away from Myhotel as I find Best Western a little too far in. However, I TOTALLY regretted my choice, I would rather walk that extra few steps! Very disappointing because I wanted to give my mum an enjoyable trip, so please do not stay here if you want a nice and enjoyable trip at bkk.
First, the service by the hotel staffs are really bad, during the first day, I tried asking the counter staff to get the tuktuk driver to send us out to the main road in their tuktuk, the counter staff asked us to approach the driver outside, and when I approached the driver outside, the driver asked me to approached the counter staff. Another incident is on the second morning, we bought some bread and request if the cafe staff could help us heat it up using their microwave, the cafe staff asked me for 50baht?! And I exclaimed 50baht to him and he said wait, he will go and check it out. Anticipating a positive reply, he came back saying it would only cost 30baht. Sigh! I have no idea what to say at this point of time, and the same thing about the tuktuk happened again and we got so angry that we decided to walk out to the main road instead, I bet it's much faster than approaching the staff for a free tuktuk ride which they put it out big on a poster.
Secondly, we realised that the hotel staff came into our room and clean it up even though we forgot to put the 'make up room' sign, I really question their privacy for their guests. And even if they clean up the room on the third day, we realised they did not top up our toilet roll?! I think that's the most basic and essential thing for room service, it's really bad bad bad! We didn't bother to ask the staff by then because we are pretty sick of all the excuses the staff gave us and pushing the responsibility here and there.
Myhotel, I would say nothing special, it's not exceptionally clean or nice to stay, and the service is REALLY POOR/BAD/INTOLERANT. And one more to add on to the list, they do not give free Wifi, which I think it's also a very simple thing to provide for guests in this modern times. And the cost for the internet is ridiculous, you have to buy a coupon which have this username and password, and the coupon comes in 30mins, an hour and one more which I can't remember. If they run out of any, sorry, you would have to purchase the other packages then. I had to use the internet for just awhile to check something, but I had to buy a 30mins package for 30baht and I used it for less than 5mins because that's all I need, and to print something, one page cost 15baht. SERIOUSLY, I was sooooo disappointed! Like very very disappointed!
I would never ever come here again, NEVER. And I would strongly recommend Best Western which is just a few more steps away but everything about that hotel is much better. Also, the lobby of Myhotel is filled with the smell of medicated oil because of the massage centre just beside, it is really very very awful the whole place.
So no, to ensure an enjoyable trip, do not stay at Myhotel just because it is cheap (but it's not exactly very very cheap as well).
