“DECENT HOTEL AT A PRIME LOCATION”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

On our (me & my wife) return from Pattaya we stayed in First Hotel , Bangkok for two days.The hotel is located at a very busy road.You can get all kinds of shops,malls , restaurants ,local market etc at walking distance.Also you can get a currency exchange shop at few steps from the hotel where you can exchange your currency to Thai currency Baht at a very reasonable rate.This shop also sells souvenir , imitation jewelry etc. The ameneties at the hotel was quite good.The hotel has a pool & sauna bath facility.The room was spacious & was kept very neat & clean.Also you can take services of beauty parlor & spa inside the hotel. The front desk staff were quite rude & non smiling.You can feel their aggressive attitude while talking.But the other staffs were quite gentle , polite. One advice to the travellers is that don't open any of the booklets kept in the room because I did that & while checking out they charged me 600 Baht for opening one such booklet which had information about Bangkok's hotels, restaurants , bars etc.Once you open them it is deemed to be sold by the hotel & they check it intentionally inside the room after you checkout from your room. Overall a decent hotel at a very convenient location.

We were a group 15 family and friends, its quite close to Big C and the Partunam market. The only issue was the breakfast was the same for 5 days without a change. The toilet quite small but manageable.

Great location for shopping and sightseeing. Close to MBK, World Centre, skytrain and city centre.
Rooms are comfortable, bathroom is small. Avoid the minibar, and check that you are taking the complimentary water, not the hotels water.
Great massages downstairs, after those long days walking.

We were a group of 30 and we opted this hotel as it is in a prime location and very near to the shopping area. The room was decent but the bathroom was too small with cheap quality soap and shampoo. Beware of the wares stocked in the room. Complimentary water bottles are the ones with a red plastic wrap. They have a display of wine bottles and city guide. Even if you take out the wrapper of the city guide, you are charged. Nobody warns you on that. Reception people are not that communicative. I was disgusted with the lift. The doors will not stop even if you stand in-between them. You have to use force to keep them open until everyone gets in or out of it safely. But the buffet breakfast was awesome with its numerous varieties and lip smacking taste. You also have a bar, massage spa and a travel desk. Indra market famous for shopping is at a walkable distance.

Room Tip: Choose a room which outlooks the road.

Hmm, in my opinion the hotel is not that bad and also it is quite clean and they offer breakfast buffet as well which is quite decent. Most of the time i visit bangkok is for shopping and medical services. I will say the place is located at an okay location because compare to the hotel that i use to stay before i have to walk a lot more to get to the shopping centers. But i will say it is a good hotel overall.

Room Tip: If you want to try breakfast outside I think you can choose to not include breakfast in the package.
