“stay there several times when it still under All season”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

nice small hotel, near to sathorn and silom area.
nearest BTS is lumpini park BTS, average breakfast but clean place
staying in this hotel definitely worth for traveller who not spend most their time in the room.
they (i don't know now) used to have a small coffee shop at hotel entrance, which will switch into a beer palace in the evening.

nearby location:
australian and malaysian embassy, Banyan tree hotel, Metropolitan hotel and walkin distance to patpong/silom area.

I recently stayed at the Chaydon Hotel Sathorn from 19July-23Jul. Excellent location for the Silom area and Lumpini Park, The BTS train service and the Sky Train were all near by. Close to most Foreign Embassies. The following you should make sure you have read about the hotel through internet booking write ups or directly at the Chaydon web site.
1. When confirming your booking make certain you have the room with a window, because there are rooms that have no windows and they fall under the economy rate.I missed it, but I must say the hotel management gave me a room with a window that did not open. But I was happy with that. I was just worried not having natural light for a 5 day stay would be considered living with Dracula.
2. Check with any hotel you book with in Bangkok if they are going to have groups of Chinese people staying because you will blow a gaskit no matter how calm a person you are. They are so noisy, banging doors, talking loudly down from one corridor to another, sounds like they are communicating with each other from two different sides of Mount Everest.
3. The dinning room for breakfast seemed to be hit by a bomb. I have never seen humans behave in such bad taste. Older woman coughing up phlegm and follow up by taking more pills and coughing up again. Well mannered people will go to the restrooms quickly as possible to take care of their personal issues.
4. I will now check every hotel booking I make to check if there are Chinese groups booked,not pleasant. I had no choice but to leave my breakfast as I was about to throw up myself. I am sure there are many other well bred and well mannered Chinese people who know about life and how to act and behave in hotels or public places.
5. The disappointment was that the hotel staff did nothing, but just looked on.
6. Please don't loose your key as there is a 300 Baht charge for a new plastic key card. If you find the original key and bring it back upon checkout , you won't get charged. As the front office and lounge staff were all very nice, courteous and helpful, one receptionist was not, otherwise I had no other problems there and will return provided there are no Chinese groups booked in. .

Room Tip: Check your hotels to ensure there are no Chinese groups booked in during the same time as your own s...

The hotel website bills this as a luxury hotel. It is not. There is no pool (the website says there is), the "fitness room" is severely lacking, and the bathrooms are just passable. It's clean, but not super comfortable. I was booked here on business and was disappointed when I arrived, based on the website.
That being said, it is affordable. There is pretty good free wifi. The front desk speaks little English, but you can manage to communicate.
A maid came into my room at 7:30 am on morning, unclear why, while I was still sleeping.
The breakfast buffet is big, with both Thai and Western morning food. The tea is terrible and always tastes like coffee. I have no idea why.
Also, do not use the amenities unless you want to be charged. They charged me for the toothpaste, which I thought was free. There are no signs. They do provide a bottle of water per day for free, however.

I booked this hotel two days ago via booking.com and stated I would need an early check in as I was coming early in the morning. When I got here I was informed that it could not be accommodated because the hotel was fully booked. Which was fine, no problem. So I sat on the sofa and waited. Having been on a bus overnight I started falling asleep and other staff came in, started speaking in Thai and laughing at me. They were looking in my direction and everything. No attempt to disguise it. That was disrespectful because in the first place it was not my fault there was no where else to go. When people started checking out a few minutes later I figured as a paying customer I would be offered a room ASAP. Nothing. I went to that disgusting bigotedab at the front desk to ask when a room will be ready and I was told I would need to wait three hours. What the hell for? So I lost patience and told the supervisor to cancel my booking and not charge me anything because the staff were treatinge like I was begging to stay there. She then upgraded my room but did not offer an apology and the idiots at the front desk were still snickering. I just came from Phuket were everybody was so amazing towardse. These idiots at Chaydon are a disgrace to the beautiful nature of Thai people. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. The staff are soooooooo disgusting. They ruined my start to Bangkok.

We stayed here in July 2012 solely for the fact that it was 5 minutes walk from the Australian Embassy, where we needed to go to get some paperwork completed.

It had just changed hands at the time, as it was originally part of the Accord group. There was no way of distinguishing it as under new management when we stayed.

It's a small, boutique style hotel with small rooms, basic decor and tiny bathrooms. It was clean enough, but space for all of our luggage was an issue.

The restaurant, where breakfast was served was an open plan room across the forecourt, which seemed to serve local office workers more than hotel guests. Breakfast was limited and slightly disappointing.

It was a functional hotel, approx 10 mins walk away from the nearest train station, (which did link you to everywhere!), in a quiet location. It did its job, but as soon as our paperwork was sorted we checked straight into the Shangri La for some sparkle, which was sadly lacking here.

Stayed at this hotel many times when it was an All Seasons hotel under the Accor brand.

It has changed ownership and is now an independent hotel.

So what's different?

On the positive, the rooms now come with tea and coffee facilities - great for that cup of coffee or boiling water for some instant noodles. The wi-fi has improved dramatically and there were no outages. Internet services such as chat have been unblocked (the previous All Seasons wi-fi was unreliable to say the least and chat was blocked on many sites.) Television reception (clarity of picture) has improved. The rooms are still spotlessly clean and the staff are still friendly staff - for the most part.

What has changed for the worse? The rooms are in need of attention. They were already getting run-down when it was an All Seasons - but nothing has been done and they are starting to show more than average wear and tear. While the restaurant still serves quite good food, the portions are much smaller now (the quality is down a little, but it's still ok).

The big change is the introduction of tour groups. Their flights arrive very late, meaning a lot of noise in the hallways around 2-3am.

Secondly, they have recently changed pricing. What used to be a good value hotel for around USD25-35 a night has now roughly doubled to around USD50-60. This seems to be across all booking engines. If you snagged a room at the old price, they will try and give you an economy room (without window) on check-in. Make sure you have your print-out for the superior room if that's what you have booked otherwise you will be in for a miserable stay.

Finally, the hotel now has a taxi service. However instead of giving you the option, if you say you are going to the airport they will ask you to wait while they bring around the hotel taxi. The charge for this is advertised as THB500 including tolls. Standard price for a brand new taxi (with seat-belts) is around THB250 + 70 tolls (to be honest the hotel taxi is not of the newer variety). They will then try to offer you the same hotel taxi by meter (I declined).

Other points: it is close to Silom, the air-conditioning still works well, and the bathroom is furnished with lots of towels (the water temperature for the shower however is a bad as it has always been, fluctuating from 'cold' to hot - and back - without warning).

Overall? The hotel is now on the borderline of being an acceptable place to stay. If you are paying the higher prices (USD50) I would advise looking at other options. For the cheaper price, the good wi-fi, reasonable food, improved television and introduction of tea and coffee facilities slightly outweigh the noise from the tourist groups and pressure to use the hotel taxi.

Stayed here a few times and every time I wonder why? The location for me is perfect (walking distance from the places we have to be) and that is actually the only reason. If you are going on a holiday don't waste it by staying here, there are nicer areas and for sure nicer hotels in Bangkok. It starts at the reception desk: No smile or friendly word, The room: especially the bathroom is not very clean and always problems with the hot water, Booking: if you want to stay here book threw one of the booking sites like Booking.com because they charge double prices here, filling in a comment with your booking doesn't make sense because they just don't read it, I requested a quiet room NOT at the main road and still got it so that means hard to fall asleep and wake up early because of the traffic.

Room Tip: Make sure you don't get a room at the road side!
