Had a 3 bed room on the 3rd floor. Not much view but basic/comfy. Large bed plus single bed. Very clean bathroom. The pool was really great. The bar food was good and prices very reasonable. The staff were beyond friendly. Tuk-tuk drivers outside the hotel were a bit annoying and expensive. However, if you know how much to pay... More

This was the perfect place to unwind for 4 nights. We had a room on the first floor overlooking the pool. The pool was perfect to help us wake up/relax by and to cool off after a day's sight seeing The staff were wonderful. So much friendlier and more helpful than I am used to, living in Bangkok.

The hotel location is good and quite central - a short tuktuk ride away from sites, restaurants and the riverfront. Our 3 bed room on the 1st floor was very spacious, clean and tidy. The second bed was hidden behind a wall, giving our 17 yr old son some privacy. Staff were friendly and helpful, always smiling and on hand... More

I stayed with my friends at 'The 252' over a weekend and we totally enjoyed out time there. We'd a very smooth check-in, though we reached by 10PM in the evening. Please remember, this is a boutique hotel and so don't expect too many persons. With the limited staff, they did a tremendous job of picking up our luggages to... More

My boyfriend booked the 252 hotel after looking at pictures and reviews on Tripadvisor. All the pictures of this hotel looks nice. However, I was disappointed after seeing our room. We stayed in the room 11. All the bed, wardrode and table in our room were not made from wood, and they look dirty. The breakfast is poor. The manager... More

I recently stayed at the 252 with my friends and we had the most incredible time. The hotel is beautiful, the food was delicious, and the service outstanding. The hotel is perfectly tucked away in a little oasis, but only a few minutes from all the sights. Furthermore, the staff goes above and beyond. It was my best friends birthday... More
