Over the past few years we have stayed at Bangkok Loft Inn on 2 occasions. We heartily endorse all the good things set out in previous reviews. Most comments related to position – good and bad!
We were in Bangkok recently and I ventured one morning to revisit this old haunt.
My wife didn’t like the walk home from Wongwian Yai BTS station in the heat of the afternoon sun, after a full day in the city proper. This explains why we elected to stay in BangRak, Riverside area recently. Ever so sorry Pat, Bob and Co of BKI, but she must be obeyed.
HERE’S THE GOOD NEWS, there is now an 8 metre wide, covered walkway which connects the station above street level to Taksin Intersection. Once there, (its signposted), its down a set of stairs on the right to the road where BKI is located some 200 metres further along the footpath (which I liken to an obstacle course in one part). Also, taking the overhead walkway takes the hazards form the very busy traffic at this very busy intersection, so getting to the wonderful seafood restaurant across from BKI is a breeze now. Try their Steamed Mud Crab @ about 450 Baht.
I sincerely hope this review helps when it comes to deciding whether to stay there. It has our recommend.
