“Confortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Stayed in this hotel due to it proximity to shangri la hotel. Also close to the nearby mosque. First stay, room was good , deluxe. Everything that you wanted as a solo traveller. Breakfast adequate.
, free wifi.

Only concern, need to deposit room key, not sure why > also adapter was said to be not available, thus the first night have to buy it. Lastly, really hope hotel staffs help in getting taxi to airport really than a fixed rate.. I managed to get one without their help front of the hotel.

Room Tip: I suppose deluxe but mine was close to the school and traffic.

Bossotel is close to a stop for the express boat which goes up and down the river, as well as to a stop for the BTS skytrain, and to the expressway which goes to the airport. This makes it handily located for getting to both west Bangkok (Thonburi), Chinatown, the Royal Palace and Wat Pho and the Khao San road by river, and to central Bangkok by train, as well as to the airport by road (without traffic jams). The hotel is very attractive and excellent value for money. We were upgraded from a superior to a deluxe room, because all the superior rooms were full and the room we had was superb - enormous, beautifully furnished and with a great view of the city. Breakfast (included in the price of the room) was excellent - loads of variety and all we could eat. An evening meal was fairly ordinary, but service was really good, tho the staff weren't especially friendly. To be recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms looking out on the street rather than on to the central courtyard are lighter.

Great location next to the Shangri-La so if you are attending a conference and are looking for a cheaper alternative look no further. Rooms are adequate and the breakfast buffet was quite nice. Nice location for sight seeing right next to the river. Only downside is the swimming pool is very very small and you feel like you are in some else room.

Room Tip: Not much difference in views go for cheaper

This review is admittedly from 2008....I enjoyed this hotel very much- the room was comfortable, the buffet breakfast very good, the foot and leg massages next door EXCELLENT and the pool very adequate and enjoyable. This hotel is in an excellent location and I would not hesitate to use it again- in fact I plan to do so this year.

I've stayed at the Bossotel several times and have always been happy with it. The rooms are a bit shabby but have always been clean. You have to be careful where your room is located because some rooms can be quite noisy.

The Bossotel is just meters from the Shangri-La, so if you are attending a conference and don't want to pay five star prices, this is your place. You are minutes walk from the water taxis, subway, and private boat docks. The street deadends at a pier/restaurant, so the traffic is pretty light.

The breakfast is excellent, and you can grab a snack or meal just about anytime. It's lovely to sit outside and have a drink in the evening.

The staff is friendly and helpful. They speak English and are able to answer most of your questions.

This is definitely a great place for the price. The foot massages next door are just an added bonus!

Room Tip: The rooms in the front seem the most quiet.

My family of four stayed in a family room from 8-10 December 2012. We were very pleased with its overall cleanliness, modern bathroom facilities and level of comfort. Also, the breakfast spread was good! I thought at first that for a small hotel, it would probably be pathetic. I was very wrong. Very decent spread actually with even pancake and omelette stations! Location is not bad too since the train station Saphan Taksin is nearby. Walking to it, you will pass by a shopping mall with Robinsons and good eateries like MK Restaurant. etc. You can also hop onto a ferry (FOC) to nearby Asiatique, a pleasant night-time dining and shopping area with a brightly lit ferris wheel. We did that one night and enjoyed beautiful view of a part of the Chao Phraya. All this info we got from the friendly staff at the reception. Highly recommended.

We had a very nice stay in Bossotel, ten days in all. The hotel is cozy, the staff is friendly and the rooms are clean, modern and rather quiet. There's a nice sunny terrace and a small swimming pool on the roof. The breakfast buffet is generous and the assortment changes every day. The hotel is a five minute walk away from Saphan Taksin pier and BTS station so different parts of Bangkok are easily reachable.

WiFi worked poorly - best connection was on the roof terrace. Staff's English language skills were somewhat average. There is not that many restaurants and bars in the walking distance from the hotel.
