“Sleeping on top of a brothel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Stayed one night three friends for the great location next to BTS Nana or Asoke.
To enter the hotel by night you have to make your way between numerous working girls on the stair in front of the hotel. The hotel itself is sharing the lobby and bathrooms with the next door bar, there are very young girls with elderly gentlemen all over the lobby and corridors. If you are traveling with children or are sensitive to this type of 'industry' I would certainly not recommend this hotel.
The whole hotel wreaks of cigarette smoke, the carpet doesn't help with that. The rooms are ok, quite dated and old decor.
The extrabed for only 350b seemed like a bargain until you slept in it, the floor would be more comfortable and there was no blanket.
Roof-top pool was the only nice surprise.
There is NO luggage room (what downtown Bangkok hotel doesn't have that?) But I guess most clients seem to rent the rooms by the hour...
Also one has to beg for an extra roll of toilet paper in the reception, since there is only ONE in the bathroom.

Room Tip: Unless you weigh less than 20kg don't book the extrabed it is an awful roll away bed.

The travel site i used did not match up to what this hotel was actually....
a) The map and address listed was Soi 55 when it was actually Soi 15 which is the only reason why someone travelling for a night and on a budget should consider this hotel.
b) The rooms do not even come close in comparison to the pictures online.
c) There are basic toiletries only and 1 hanger....very basic door lock and no safe
d) The trains do pass by pretty close so it does get a bit noisy but not that bad.
e) Thermae the bar in the basement attracts a lot of men looking for company so definitely not a place for women travelling alone.
f) Offers you nothing in comparison to any other hotel in the vicinity in terms or assistance with sightseeing or transportation...even to and from the airport.

This hotel has a superb location in Sukhumvit, with all of Bangkoks nightlife, and great restaurants just outside the door. It is also just 5 minutes walk to the BTS stations of Nana and Asoke. We had a deluxe room which was very comfortable and spacious. This hotel has the famous Thermae Bar beneath it which is a girlie bar, and which is often referred to as The Star Wars Bar. It is one bar which everyone should visit once in a lifetime. The staff at the hotel were friendly. We did not sample the food. The bathroom was clean and the cleaning staff did a great job.

Room Tip: Deluxe room, standard rooms nowhere near as good.

Good location with less than 5 mins walking to BTS Asoke and Nana, Robinson, Terminal 21 and many pubs and restaurants.
I stayed in a twin bed room which came with very basic toiletries , not safe box, no hair dryer and slipper. However , the bathroom was clean and bright. Staffs is not so friendly and lacking of smile.

This hotel is not a place for light sleeper as it is very close to the main road and BTS skytrain station. The noise from the traffic can be quite disturbing.

Not recommended to single female traveller . Check out nearby accommodation with the similar budget for a better choice.

Stayed at this hotel in July as my favorit hotel was fully booked. 1.600 baht for a standard room including breakfast. The plus for this hotel is location. Its in the heart of Sukhumvit and nearby to everything. Since I am a pool player the Bush Garden and Sports Academy is in the building. Only 200 meter to Robinson shopping senter and BTS station Asok. The rooms in itself is very clean and probably refurbished resently. Fridge in the room. My room had a flatscreen TV monted on the wall. I know some rooms have the older style Tv's. Quite standard boring rooms but at this price you cant ask for much more. I recommend to not get the rooms close to Sukhumvit as it can be a bit noicey. Swimmingpool on rooftop. To describe this hotel best: Standard rooms, clean and great location.

Room Tip: The rooms closes to the lift is quieter. Avoid corner room as it get some noice from the havy traffi...

There is nothing I could really fault with the hotel. Courteous staff, clean and decent-sized room, clean bathroom. They allowed an early checkin without issues. They offered a late checkout. I will definitely stay here again on my next visit to Bangkok.
