“Good basic tourist hotel close to mass transit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

This hotel is a recent reincarnation of an older hotel. It has been nicely renovated and both the decor and staff present a fresh, casual feel. Rooms and beds are comfortable. No safe deposit box available, but a locking-drawer in the room does the job of looking after valuables. Pool is pleasant enough - water is cool as it is always in shade, pool area is noisy from traffic in the neighbouring lane. Breakfast is very limited (only one option - a western breakfast plate) and pricey for what you get. Spa is pricey, unless you get a discount coupon for staying at the hotel. Proximity to MTR and Big C (with good food court) are pluses for this hotel.

Good value for money. I liked that they had a small pool. Nice staff. The room was clean and big. The hotel was close to shopping center and a big cinema. This was my first stay in Ratchada area. Sure, it is not in the middle of the city center, but I still likes the area alot. Mostly locals, I meet some other tourists, but not so many of us. And I kind of like staying in an area that is not so "touristy".

Kind of hard to find at first. Best advice; Go to Big C. Walk right through Big C shopping center and the parking lot there. Then you will arrive at Prom Ratchada Residence.

Had a great experience at this hotel. The room was very spacious, modern and cleaned every day - we were surprised considering how cheap it was. It is about a 5 min walk to the train, 15 minutes on the train to Siam and the main tourist area of Bangkok. It is right behind the Big C, an enormous supermarket. Very quiet. Will probably stay here again.

Best service at this Hotel was the service provided for Taxi and baggage, which was excellent. Problems with finding reservations, room change resulting in additional desk problems and calls to room close to midnight. The rooms were small with the air conditioning taking an exceptional long time to cool the room. The breakfast offered did not look above average, resulting to trips to Big C across from hotel.

Much better value offered in this price range.

Difficult to find - have hotel phone # for Taxi Diver to call Hotel for directions

Room Tip: Suggest room upgrade to Deluxe or above.

Prom Ratchada is a cozy hotel near MRT and Big-C.
Service crews are very friendly and speak good English.
They will go all out in assisting. (on a rainy morning, one of the staff actually walk in the rain and brought us, one occupants and me, out to the main road to hire a taxi)
The room is very clean and comfortable. Bed and sheets are clean. Spacious. Cozy chic feeling


The cons of the room:
1) thin walls; can hear what is going on outside the room
2) old-fashion lock door; can hear people slamming the door closed as the door lock is very stiff every morning

We stayed in the hotel with our little daughter for 8 nights. The hotel is very clean, good breakfast and hotel staff are wonderful. It is within short distance of the MRT and the BIG-C is always there to make a run for a quick shopping. The swimming pool is built under the roof so it is a bit cold, but didn't stop us from having a swim.

I will definitely come back to this hotel and will recommend it to all my friends.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

We stayed for 5 night while exploring Bangkok and sorting our visas for Burma. We had a superior (free upgrade) and then a standard room as we had two bookings. Both rooms were good modern hotel rooms with air con, wifi, comfortable beds, clean rooms and a quiet location. Our standard room was smaller and had a door that adjoined another room, actually both the next door room and ours had doors and there was a small gap in the middle, but they were secure.

The walls in hotel were slightly thin but not enough to make it an issue. There is a nice little pool area on the ground floor, good at this price. There is also a small cardio gym with three machines, I used the treadmill and it worked well.

The staff were helpful, the concierge will sort you out a taxi etc. The hotel is located near the Thailand cultural centre mrt station and about a 20 minute (150 baht, £3) cab ride from the don muang airport (new base for air asia). It is also next to several shopping centres (right behind the big C), including a cinema and bowling alley.

The trip to see the sights / Khao San Road is about 15-30 minutes in a cab as the MRT and sky train do not run that far.
So it is a bit further out and not in the thick of the action.

Would recommend and stay again.
