“BEST budget hotel in Bangkok.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Did you fly to Bangkok to lounge in your room? There is no veranda to take panoramic views or all the comforts of home.THIS IS BANGKOK. Best affordable hotel. The rooms have everything you need-shower, mirror, sink, small refrigerator, bed, wi-fi, air. The free breakfast is simply fine for coffee and some Thai fruit. Staff is so kind-if you understand that you are the guest. If you are there to get a Bangkok experience-YOU ARE IN THE BEST POSSIBLE LOCATION. The short walk to the BTS (Skyway-clean, safe, cheap) and already you are experiencing something that will forever remain. Street vendors, food, bars, THAI MASSAGE SCHOOL, an organic grocery store, a 24 hour convenience store, the Emporium if you want designer anything, Buddist shrines everywhere, people selling grilled fish--and the non-stop rhythm of life in this chaotic---yet strangely magical, gracious arena. It is all there-the best of life- and challenging sights of some hard-living but genuine smiles abound if you are open. Explore this incredible city, be grateful that you can afford to experience this. Your room will be a safe haven to rest up for the next day.

Room Tip: Be kind to the staff-they will do whatever they can to make you comfortable. A single 60 yr old woma...

I went for this budget hotel as I only needed a one-night stay, because I flew in to Bangkok a day before my official business trip, to do some mad shopping, so I just needed a decent and cheap as hell hotel to sleep. I booked it via Agoda and paid like only S$40 or lesser. Really cheap!

Its location is unbeatable, it is so close to Phrom Phong BTS Skytrain station, and it is opposite the Emporium Shopping complex, where my office and my business trip accommodation (Emporium Suite) is situated. So all I needed was to cross the overhead bridge and viola, I reached my office already.

There is this "Wat Po Massage School" located along the same row of shop-houses as the hotel which offers good and cheap foot massages. And it closes very late at night so it is really good to drop by after one whole day of walking and shopping to relax and unwind.

Overall, the hotel is quite nice and I do feel quite comfortable staying for the night, but for a relatively new hotel, a number of the furniture and fixture are breaking apart. My hotel room’s door doesn’t open quite well, the wood laminates of the table is peeling off and there are stains on the hotel’s towels. But, for $40 a night, I wouldn't complain.

The hotel is hard to find since it located inside a corner, make sure u note down the phone number and call the receptionist when you can't find it. The location is very good because is very near to BTS station , many places we can go just by BTS train. The bedroom is clean and toilet is very nice,I like it overall but just they don't have hot water provided. The receptionist is very friendly , we out of time and need a cab to airport , they help us call taxi and the taxi reach within few minutes,
Besides, they borrowed their samsung charger for us also due to we forgot to bring so we return it every morning. Overall ,the price is affordable and breakfast is okay and healthy. Nice !

This is a hotel were you want to return to sleep, the room are as basic as possible with a bathroom squeezed into these, the location is good all around you will find restaurants, supermarkets and so on it close to the Emporium Shopping Mall.

What got me was that the morning staff lack motivation to go out and buy milk for breakfast when the ran out the second night i stayed in the hotel. Stupid this must leave the place in the lower range of hotels, as staff did not try to ensure the guest were taken well care of.

We picked this hotel for 2 reasons: first we were staying with a group of people who wanted something decent for as cheap as possible and second, close to the BTS line to get around easily. This hotel fulfilled both.
It is recent and clean and with its convenient location (it is also very close to the Emporium) that's pretty much all its advantages.
The rooms are quite small, which I usually don't mind but the bathrooms are especially tiny; the toilet seat is practically in the shower, without any curtain or any form of separation between the 2! No hair dryer included.
There are also no drawers or dressers to leave your clothes in.
The staff, while friendly enough is quite inefficient and barely speak enough English to communicate efficiently with guests.
The included continental breakfast is a bit sad.
If you travel light, on a budget and just want somewhere clean to crash, that's a good place for you.

My friends and I were planning for a vacation in Bangkok and were looking for a reasonable cheap but clean place to stay. We came across Nantra Sukhumvit 39 in Agoda.com and reviews provided by previous travelers on Tripadvisor was pretty good so we decided to book our accommodation with Nantra Sukhumvit 39.

We booked two standard rooms for 1,000 baht per night per room (prices subjected to change). Breakfast included. Here's my review based on a five day four night stay at the hotel:

Rooms:
- 1 double bed with 4 pillows
- TV, Fridge, Air-conditioned
- Towels, soap and shower cap provided

Amenities:
- 3 computers with internet available at the lobby
- WIFI in the room
- Breakfast is from 7:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. (simple menu: bread, milk, orange juice, fruits and cereal)

Location:
- 2 minutes walk to Phrom Phong BTS Skytrain
- 5 minutes walk to Emporium Shopping Centre
- 30 minutes from Don Mueng International Airport (1 hour and 15 minutes during rush hour with traffic jam)

Pros:
- Near to BTS Skytrain
- Have lots of street food / restaurants in the area
- Can easily access public transport (tuk-tuk and taxis)
- Near shopping areas
- Helpful friendly staff

Cons:
- Uniquely weird design of room with washing basin outside the bathroom
- The whole hotel has a strong chemical smell (like industrial cleaner), including the rooms
- Hard to find the hotel as it is located in a corner, taxi drivers might not know the location
- The first night I was there, there was no water from the taps and I was unable to shower. Called the reception and the problem was quickly resolved. However the front desk people speak limited English.
- My friends' room's air-condition had water dripping from it.

Notes:
- To find the place, just tell the taxi driver Phrom Phong BTS Skytrain station, opposite of Emporium Shopping complex. It is the same row as "Wat Po Massage School"
- Just outside the hotel there is a "Thai Food Very Cheap Very Good" restaurant that serves really nice Thai food. If you are sick of eating toast and cereal every morning, this would be a good place to try
- Just around the corner from the "Thai Food Very Cheap Very Good" restaurant, there are street vendors selling nice food like Thai papaya salad, mix rice, fruits, fried omelet etc.
- Has a lot of Japanese restaurants near by

Room Tip: Try to get a room which does not face the construction site... and corner rooms are much bigger
