“IKEA in a rectangular box”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

This hotel, considering its location, was good for the price. The night I checked in, later, around 1AM the power to my room went out. They sent a repairman immediately. He fiddled with wires for around half an hour and determined it was beyond his capacity so they moved me across the hallway. The built-in furniture was pure IKEA design and everything functioned appropriately. Very cookie cutter. The staff also functioned appropriately. I would stay there again.

The pool is nice, the breakfast buffet is not exceptional but nothing to complain about either. Prices the same as the Ibis Sathorn, but the food is a little better and the pool.
Location may feel a little out there, but to get a riverside view for the room, and that's much better than seeing the love hotel from your window at the Ibis Sathorn. It's actually not too far of a walk from the BTS Sky Train, or a very quick and cheap ferry to the other sky train stop.

Room Tip: Ask for a riverside view

We booked the family room with our 2 kids, it was perfect.(59 euro per night, excl breakfast. Kids loved the playstation, pity they didnt have time to use it. Location is perfect too, one ferry stop away from the skytrain, we felt it was perfect.Nice views from the horel onto the river, nice pool, it was all we needed during our short stay

We spent several holidays in Thailand and stayed in different hotels in Bangkok. We
like the location at the river, and the hotel is very nice. The rooms are quite simple (like in every Ibis), but clean, modern
and very convenient with a good and silent air-condition, that does NOT blow directly onto the bed (like in many other hotels, even in 5 star hotels in Thailand).
We liked the pool, it as huge and there is a nice garden. A real drawback of the hotel is the sex tourists that stay there. In the pool area, in the restaurant and pretty much everywhere in the hotel, you see all day round western man in there fifties to sixties with very found Thai girls-I am pretty sure that most of them are prostitutes. We did not visit Phuket and Pattaya, we like more less touristy areas and beaches, and do more cultural tourism to Cambodia or northern Thailand.
Thus, we never saw these old guys with prostitutes hanging around in hotels, and we found it really disturbing, especially in the restaurant. And other guests thought the same. The hotel should not leave prostitutes into the hotel! It would be a great hotel without the sex tourists, but for this reason, next year, we will look for another hotel.

This hotel is a great bargain. If you reserve online it is possible to get a double room for a little more than $20 USD a night!
The location is quiet, but easy to get to. The pool and restaurant are right on the river. There is a river ferry, a shuttle service to the subway, or you could just walk across the bridge.
The hotel is clean, and the rooms are spacious.
I recommend staying here if you are planning a trip to Bangkok.
