“Great hotel, more of the 'real' Bangkok.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

This was a great hotel for a whole host of reasons...

The staff were very friendly and assisted us with a number of things (such as booking travel etc.), the place was very clean and tidy and the breakfast was superb too.

The only problem is the location. Yes there is the Skytrain only a short walk away, but apart from that you have to walk a fair distance along the road to get to any decent shops.

That being said, if you're wanting to experience more of the 'real' Bangkok then this area is pretty good for that as there's hardly any tourists around at all. There's a nice coffee shop nearby (left out of the hotel, next left and walk a short distance), there's an absolutely amazing food court over the road from the hotel which serves amazing food until the small hours and was really cheap too.

Overall, if you fancy somewhere where you want to just sit outside the main doors with a few beers watching the world go by whilst talking to other hotelliers or the comical security guy, this place will suit you. It is a bit of something different and as mentioned, if you want to head to the tourist areas, the Skytrain is just two minutes to the left out of the hotels main doors.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

Spent three nights here recently and we were really pleased with the quality of the hotel.

Without repeating other entries we enjoyed a good breakfast, complimentary fruit on arrival and used their good value laundry service.

Our only negatives would be that it really is quite far out of central Bangkok. The transport links are good and we did know the location when we booked but it's worth being aware that it probably takes around 1 hour to get from the centre to the hotel. We had a night bicycle tour booked and realised that we'd have to head back mid afternoon to ensure we arrived at the tour on time.

The only other thing to be aware of is that whilst we were there the wifi was dreadful. We weren't able to load simple pages online. A solution however is the excellent Good Luck cafe nearby which has the fastest wifi we've found in Asia yet (about 5MB!). We can also recommend the breakfasts and iced coffees.

A good hotel but doubt we'd stay again if we only had a short time in Bangkok based solely on location.

We booked this hotel to be away from the protests that were going on in Bangkok and because of its proximity to the Skytrain. The hotel itself is great with good breakfasts, nice amenities, super friendly staff and clean rooms. The wifi is spotty, but okay. The main problem with this place is its location which is in an area of Bangkok with little to do and lots of very noisy traffic. It's really necessary to get on the Skytrain if you want to go anywhere and the walk to the station is very noisy with a major, heavily-trafficked road right there. Still, the people, the breakfasts and the lovely rooms make this an option if you don't mind the noisy street in front.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are quieter.

Clean, a little far from the centre but near a Skytrain station. Friendly hosts and an excellent breakfast make this hotel a very smart choice. Free drinking water, fruits on reception desk, nice rooms. I totally recommend it.

Since we were staying here during the protests I thought it was the perfect location, well away from all the protest sites but the city was still easily accessible via the sky train, the nearest station being a five minute walk away, and one can be at the Siam Square area within 15 minutes. A taxi ride to the Khao San Road area was well under 100 baht, on a week night. There are local street restaurants right across the street, and a department store and grocery store, along with some more Western-style chain restaurants, about a 10 minute walk away. There are some small, very non-touristy markets close by, if you choose to explore the neighborhood. The room was clean and basic; we weren't able to get hot water at the sink, and the faucet was kind of loose. The staff are helpful and friendly, though don't expect fluency in English. The breakfast is simple, you choose the night before, either Thai or American style, supplemented by a buffet of fruit, yogurt, breads.

Had a few days in Bangkok before starting our G Adventures tour of Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. We had originally booked the Buddy Lodge on Khao San Road but because of it's proximity to the demonstrations and the fact they never responded to any of my emails, I switched hotels. I was glad I did. The Loft Inn was a great choice for location, price and service. We arrived at the airport at 2 am and they were there to pick us up. Our room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was included and there was a great place across the street to eat with the locals. Close to the BTS and very friendly staff.
