“Location is as good as it gets”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

We stayed at this hotel before leaving on a G Adventures tour. The fact that this hotel is a starting point for tours is probably why this hotel isn't particularily great as they don't seem to be overly fussed in service.

The check in was fine, but once in the rooms it changes. The rooms are tired and in desperate need of a lick of paint. The bathroom looked shabby and teh shower in our room didn't work.

We had a room on the 3rd floor on the Saturday night, and not sure if the music/singing came from the hotel or elsewhere, but it was shockingly awful and loud and went on til 2am

The restaurant for breakfast operated on a ticket system, and the choices were a bit bland.

As part of a tour it's fine for a nights sleep, but I wouldn't choose to stay there.

I stayed here just for one night at the start of a G-Adventures group tour. It was a great location right next to Bangkok Central Station. And just across the road (on the other side of the station) is a fantastic little Thai restaurant.

There are computers with internet in the hotel but turn left out of the hotel and you will find several really cheap places to use internet.

The room was quite nice. It was clean and the bathroom was also clean. The breakfast let this place down for me as there wasn't much choice and not enough western style breakfast food.

We stayed here for 1 night before catching the train down to the islands, having stayed on Khao San before it was definitely quieter - although not as much fun! The rooms are clean and there is a great Thai restaurant through the subway and at the other side of Central Station - some taxi and tuk-tuk drivers struggled to find it, so take a business card from the hotel if you head out...would recommend for short stays.

I booked this hotel in bangkok since it was really closer to BTS and Hua lumpanpog railway station. Hotel was old but renovated recently. with the location of the hotel it keeps busy every time. staff of the hotel doesn't care about the guests and they just try to finish there work and get back home.

2nd time I have checked in the hotel 1 hour earlier after I arrived from phuket. They didn't allocated me a room since i'm one hour early even they had enough vacant rooms. After several discusstions they have agreed to provide me with a room. If you are booking this hotel be very specific on your terms with the hotel.

they had a nice restaurent and hotel is near to china town as well... better to taste some chinease food if you are in this hotel.

Room Tip: Don't drink the over priced water bottle on the table !

This hotel was not a nice place to stay. Unfortunately this was our first stay in Bangkok and the bathroom needed some work on the all the taps shower fittings. They were all stiff to open/work. I was not worried by the age of the hotel but the fittings could have been in better condition. Staff at the reception were offhand and there was no help / maps / to keep travellers safe etc. The breakfast turned out to be stone cold although there was a bain marie/ facility to keep everything warm. They also practiced a two tier breakfast and guests were directed to a different breakfast room if they had a different meal ticket. I assume the breakfast area we didn't visit was OK as ours couldn't have been worse. I would not have eaten any other meal at the hotel as the beakfast as so poor. The mattress had a plastic cover which made for noisy uncomfortable sleeping. One wonders what kind of guests they are expecting?The swimming pool is small and on the two occasions we stayed here was a signup to tell everyone not to use the pool
The location was close to the main railway station and entrance to the underground but we are sure there must be more favourabe hotels close to this area . DO NOT STAY IN THIS HOTEL

Room Tip: No rooms are 'good' AC OK

Startd here with a tour the hotel is okay but not very accommodating very rude when we asked to have a takeaway breakfast due to an early flight. Agree with the other reviews use the hotel next door for Internet as it is so much cheaper but is it an easy hotel with the subway right outside and not too far from the airport. Staff are okay if you make an effort in Thai but some are still rude and unhelpful.
Beware of taxi drivers all around this area.
When we were there the swimming pool had an unbalance of chemicals so we could not use it.

We stopped hear for 3 days before our tour of Thailand and found the hotel clean and comfortable and a very good free breakfast rooms a bit small but o.k. The conections are excellant to get around Bangkok the Metro is just outside the hotel which in turn is only 2 stops from the Sky train.

Room Tip: odd number rooms are next to lift
