“The Best Hotel to Experience Bangkok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

This hotel is a japanese-owned hotel and thus its cleanliness is observed at all times. it is situated near sala daeng station in just about 5 minutes walk and is along the busy street just across phat phong so if you're a city lover like me who loves to stroll at night and take a quick break during the day trip, this is the best one.

Though the hotel doesn't have a free breakfast so that's one thing. But there are a lot of restos beside it which you can widely choose from.

Stayed February 2013, traveled solo

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I really like this small new hotel in one of the best locations in Bangkok. The rooms are brand new and very comfortable. The rates are more than reasonable. I don't understand why anyone would claim it's "seedy" when it's anything but. Maybe instead of expecting a mint on the pillow for USD $37, they should stay at the Oriental for USD $400 per night. This is a budget hotel but it's anything but dirty. In fact it's a lot more comfortable than some more expensive hotels I've stayed at on my monthly trips to Bangkok. The rooms are small and there is no elevator. But despite being right in the middle of the nightlife action of Silom, it's amazingly quiet and I get a great night's sleep. Brand new LCD's, hot showers and real air conditioning. For less than 50 bucks.

Still new, but the low quality of the amenities and the seediness of the place will ensure it looks run-down pretty soon. Tuck yourself up under a smelly blanket with NO cover or sleep without one. Cover the toilet seat before you sit on it.

What's more, the rooms are small and anything but 'suites', so at 1300 Baht way too expensive considering the 'overall experience'.

Room Tip: If you decide to stay here, ask for a room towards the back of the building to avoid the noise from...
