“an absolute dump!!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

we had planned to stay in bangkok a few night and the pictures for this hotel looked nice. when you arrive its a different story....... the hotel was disgusting, the reception is up a few floors so no one helps you in. our room was terrible you basically had to climb over the bed to get to the moudly bathroom and the door to our room had a 10cm gap at the bottom so the light from the corridor shinned right onto our faces.

the walls are paper thin so you could hear EVERYTHING and i mean EVERYTHING. the rooftop resturaunt was nothing special and the food was cold and quite pricey.

the only good thing about the hotle is they gave us a refund for the extra two nights we book so we could leave early.

Location is in the heart of Chinatown, Bangkok. Fantastic area to walk the streets, people watch and be apart of the hustle and bustle of bangkok. Hotel rooms are very simple, There is no pool despite advertising that they have one !! Service is terrible and wifi is unreliable. The roof top is abandoned and it not the spa that they claim to so called have - Total SHAM!!

Don't bother you can find way better places to stay in bangkok don't fall into the trap of this crap place !!

Room Tip: No pool, No roof top bar, Do not stay here!!

In the middle of China town, so enough to do and see outside the hotel. Hotel is basic but good enough if you in no need of luxery. Rooms are neat but bathroom is in need of renovation. Breakfast buffet is poor. Compared to simular hotels in Bangkok this hotel is overprized. 1500 thb. Is too much for what you get, even in China town.

We made a reservation using hrs and found the white orchid with average reviews. When we arrived there was a horrible smel in the lobby. It smeled like fish and food but definetily not good. The room was in the 4th floor and the smell was better there. But we were shocked when we recognuced that the room was without window. The AC was working but loud. The room did not look like the pictures showed at all. Complaning did not change anything. But they offered us delux room for more than dubble the price. We cancelled the hrs reservation right away and stayed only this one night. All in all it was not worth the money and the hassle.

My husband and I were visiting Bangkok Dec2011, we booked the White orchid hotel via the wotif website. On the net, the hotel and its rooms looked pretty decent, so we opted for a superior deluxe. When we arrived, to our shock- the hotel was nothing like they potrayed it to be. The air conditioning in the room was far from working, the linen was not fresh, there was no sound proofing anywhere- so we cld hear our neighbours loud n clear. The room service wouldnt help at all, they simply spoke in their local language.
We made a decision to shift out of the hotel immediately and booked ourselves into the Heritage hotel (great hotel), in the city itself, where my husband had stayed earlier.
On our checkout, for no reason the White orchid staff charged us 50BHT for ' breaking a glass', as they mentioned. We lost our temper and explained that we were not even in their room long enough to use anything. They then refunded our total money.

Great Tip- Do NOT go by 3d images out on the websites, they are FAKE!
Plus Its better to book 2 nights accomodation through the net, if you are not sure of the hotel. Rest you can extend or re book at another place, its not much of a price diff.

Room Tip: Higher the level, the better room, more privacy and decent view

We booked 4 rooms in advance and hat surcharges that made the price higher than actually expected. trying to solve this misunderstanding the managment was not very cooperative.
Also when it was about problems like no hot water, the personal took long time to take care of that. They told us to leave the water running before to go to breakfast so it will be warm when we come back. I don't think this is an acceptable or economical solution.
Rooms and location were fine and if it would have been the 700 baht that we booked it for and not 1.000 baht per room the white orchid would still be average.
