“clean and safe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

very clean place, in a good and quiet area, not far from the Lumphini station (8minutes by walk) with a lot of7/11 nearby. The owner seems quite detached, but in reality is very kind, it is just suffcient to ask and he will try to give you all the help you need!the rooms are large, with fridge and air condi and wonderfully colored! the only thing is that you have to pay cash!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2011

I actually stayed here by accident when the hotel I had booked into had completely lost my booking and had to move me around in order to get me accommodated! The price was very good (I paid about 900 baht - although I am unsure if any discount was applied owing to the mess up with my original hotel). The room was really great for the money - clean and spacious with a double bed. There is wi-fi available but you do have to pay (the guy from my original hotel picked this up so I don't know how much) - but the internet speed is good.

I know what the other reviewer means about the guy on the front desk not looking very happy - ha ha ha he didn't at all!!! And I don't think there is much English spoken. However, it didn't really affect me as I didn't need anything from the front desk - perhaps the language barrier might be a problem if you are staying here for a week or so.

I think that as long as you are okay to look after yourself (ie don't need anyone to orient you upon arrival) then this place is a good choice.

Stayed July 2011, traveled solo

Nice place with nice rooms, well serviced by local restaurants and massage parlour. Taxi ride 80baht to Silom, 400 Inc highway from airport. Terribly miserable front desk attendant-have stayed s number of times and he rarely has a good day! A smile would suffice. Can find more central and same standard for same/little more money.
