In average, the room is comfortable. Price is affordable. Less than 10 mins walk to BTS.(I usually walk, but you can also take a tuk tuk provided by hotel). The staff does not always smile but still helpful. Breakfast is nice. Everything looks good except 2 things.
First, Wifi is too slow. While I choose accommodation, I almost consider the place with Wifi. Because I need to write e-mail, book transit ticket, search travel information and contact with family. I've lived in many places, except some places without internet, this hotel's wifi is the lowest speed I've ever used. Although I know internet is not the most important thing in a hotel. But if you're heavy internet user, there are many restaurants providing wifi in Bangkok. Please use internet outside.
Second, if you're allergic constitution, your skin is sensitive. Please prepare your pills like antihistamine or insect repellent. As we know Thailand is a tropical country. It's hard to prevent some insects or bugs get into rooms. I am the one who is really lucky that something kiss on my legs and arms in the night. I don't know what exactly bite me, but the bites increased when I sleep. Specifically, I can't sleep well because I'm so itchy and can't stop scratching my skin. But my friend, who sleeps on the other bed doesn't get any bites. So we decide to change room. The reception is kind to let us change.
Actually I really think for a long time to decide if I need to post this review, because in total, this is a nice place to stay except my body was bitten by something. Due to my friend have no any react. Am I just too sensitive?But I saw a tourist's review who was also bitten like mine, I decide to tell my experience. Hope the hotel can improve their environment.
