5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

I have stayed here many times over many years, usually at the start or end of every Thailand trip for the days in Bangkok. Run calmly and profesionally by the excellent Daniel Winkler this a unique residence with a small keycard private entrance in a small quiet sub soi off Soi 19 just down the road from the huge Westin hotel on the Sukhumvit corner. Location is excellent, near to Robinson's store, a short walk from Asoke and Soi Cowboy entertainment district, a comfortable longer distance walk to the Nana Plaza and NEP entertainment area, and within easy reach of the Skytrain system.

Rooms are neat, well laid out, of modest overall size but good decor, with nice touches like towelling bathrobes, and very well maintained daily. The discreet entrance with key card and no reception staff means the hotel is especially friendly for single male travellers and their guests with no 'joiner fees' or restrictions. There are room safes. If you want a change from Thai food, eat excellent pastry and croissant breakfast with good coffee, and superb dinner menu with good quality wine in the evening, authentic swiss food, very european high standard, discreet service and all in all a really pleasant more private residence experience than any of the Sukhumvit tourist hotels. Prices are only slightly higher than some middle market tourist hotels but well worth it when you want a more private ambience, 1,850 -2,000+ baht per night depending on season, approximately and very good value.

I really look forward to my stays here and alternate between Grottino and a middle budget hotel in Soi 11 for variety but would reccomend Grottino to anyone wanting a more tranquil quality haven in this area of Bangkok.

Found this hotel through Agoda for around 1800 Baht a night.

Location is great, next to Terminal 21, right behind Robinson at Sukhumvit-road.
So is the metro and sky-train from where you can reach the important spots of BKK without the hustle of the taxi's.

Check-in was fast and sufficient, Grottino uses keycards for the hotelrooms.
The hotelroom is big enough for a couple, when you travel solo its great.

Big bed with enough pillows, flatscreen-TV with DVD-player, telephone, mini-bar, extra stuff to make your stay more comfortable on top of the mini-bar, air-con, desk with chair and a cozy, little lounge-couch.

The bathroom is very clean and sufficient.
A hairdryer for the ladies and enough soap to wash every part of your body.
A big pro are the huge towels, they are great!

I made a reservation for a couple of nights but I gladly extended it till the end of my holiday in Thailand.

Highly recommended!

Run by long time Swiss residents of Bangkok, the hotel and restaurant are operated very professionally and, as another reviewer mentioned, 'very Swiss' :o)
Excellent food quality and taste, clean and convenient rooms. The location is excellent too - a few meters down a small, quiet side alley behind Robinson's Department Store, Sukhumvit, and a 3 minute walk to the Skytrain.
Great for anyone looking for a quiet, comfortable haven in busy Bangkok with a European ambience, and definitely a good place for homesick Swiss!

We stayed at the Grottino in 2007 on our first trip to Bangkok. We truly liked the cosy atmosphere as well as the modern rooms. Everything was clean and pleasant, The location is outstanding for walking to entertainement and dining, or to take the skytrain for a quick ride to other locations in the city. Planning our next trip to BKK and we will stay at the Grottino again. $56 is such a bargain!!!!!
Oh, by the way: the beds are a little "firm" for american standards :)

pro: Rooms are large and clean, wish they had a nice flat-screen TV instead of the old tube type. Complementary in-room wireless internet is very fast. Not cheap but certainly fairly priced for the value.

con: very small elevator, when one gets off the elevator there are towels and etc stored in the hallway giving it a slightly cluttered appearance.
