“a business operated by retired people”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

A hotel which saw better days - but for a day or two it´s an option to stay in this area.... very spacious rooms a bit smelly from smoking but they try to keep the room in the best conditions they can, it have a swimming pool which is nice to have after a day of shopping and also included a small plated breakkfast.... all over - it´s OK for the 1.200 THB per night and .... it´s not far from the next Thong Lo BTS station

Room Tip: there are some better around but they don´t have a pool and cost a bit more..... if you want or need...

The hotel is anything but modern and is to say the least run down but at a tad over 1,000 Baht a night can't really grumble. The rooms are quite large but a bit on the dingy side, very basic but do have a large fridge, All electrical sockets are 2 pin with no ground and are so worn that spark when plugging anything in and if putting an adapter that has some weight to it then it falls out. The breakfast is a joke.

Location is quite reasonable at the lower end of Sukhumvit with MRT close by. It was close to where I had a client but really not somewhere I would stay.

Yes, this hotel is very old fashioned but its good value considering the price you pay. I have stayed here on a number of occasions because the location on Sukhumvit road is very good. The rooms are old but the beds are large and comfortable and its easy to get a good night's sleep. I found the staff to be friendly except those working in the restaurant.

If you want a cheap but comfortable hotel then Rex Hotel is a good choice. If you are looking for somewhere modern and chic then its not a good choice.

It was clean, run down, but functioning (except for the for the left hand elevator which we briefly got stuck in). Quiet, rooms are not on the road. Coffee shop next door is the restaurant, never ate there, just had a beer or two. Nice enough, Formica counters, etc. Our room was 1200 B/night. Swam in pool, something wrong with chemistry balance, hurt my eyes underwater, not a chlorine problem.

Room Tip: we were on 4th floor, third floor has direct access to run down pool.

If this is the very last place to stay in Bangkok, okay, it's a bed.

But be warned.

During my stay the toilet unexpectedly started shooting up water in the night.
The electric sockets sparked several times - and I mean shooting fire - from the TV.
And I felt something bit me more then once in the bed.

The place hasn't been renovated since the 70s, it's carpets look as if they are about to decay.

On the upside - it's cheap. And the people who work there are nice.

But nevermind, there are nicer and cheaper places throughout the city. This one is best avoided.

This hotel is very old,the people in the reception dont know how to smile and treat their guest properly,exept for the security guards and the door man which is very polite,the staff in the restaurant are also rude,specially one old guy waiter that serve me and my buddy,we stayed here because of the price of the room i get for 800 baht a day,the room is ok with a bathtub,hot shower,tv aircon,but it really needs attention as this hotel is getting really old,same with the grumpy receptionist,and the rude cashier in the restaurant,my suggestion is fired those grumpy old people and renovate the hotel

Room Tip: There is no good room,its all old

We found the Rex after staying at a hostel in sukhumvit. The Rex has certainly seen better days but for 1200baht you get a big reasonably comfy bed, tv, fridge and sort of bath in the bathroom. Plus it has a pool which I find its redeeming feature for a budget stop over in bangkok.
Location is good for skytrain and excellent thai street food.
