Stayed over in white palace for 4 nights as it meet our budget and relatively accessible to the nearby train station, shopping district. Once we enter the hotel, decorations from the 1980s greeted us, quite old-school. The lift seems like it's going to breakdown anytime. Room was fairly bare with slight stains on the bed sheets. Bathroom was worn out with some squeaking upon getting into the plasticky bathtub. Breakfast provided were decent with no change in menus over the few days we stayed there. Overall a conveniently located hotel for travelers on a budget.

We were in Bangkok for a convention and this hotel fit our needs perfectly. There was a swimming pool available but we were too busy to use it. The rooms are decent and clean. It looks like they are updating them to make them look more modern. It's about a fifteen to ten minute walk to the boat station and the nearest train station. The breakfast is provided and was decent as well with bacon, eggs, fruit, yogurt, etc.

We stayed 2 night in White Palace. We booked it cause it looked nice from the outside and the reception was nice and clean. Everything chances when you enter elevators. Decoration is straight from 80`s. When we came to our floor there was used breakfast dishes in corridor and it was not morning. Room was smelly and worn-out and dirty. We also had few cockroaches in our room and I was not surprised cause cleanness was not so high class. It was nice to have some place for sunbathing but i didn`t feel like swimming in that roof top pool. Also the corridor to pool was full of old furnitures and garbage. Breakfast was terrible. We will definetely choose another hotel next time in Bangkok.

Rooms were very comfortable, reception staff excellent. Basically a basic value for money hotel. Breakfast was nothing much. However, the food from the menu is excellent. Walking distance to main shopping Malls, though a bit of a long walk. Hotel is located very close to the Pratunam market, which is totally a busy area. Conveniently located with a 7 Eleven just 200 yeards away.

The foot massage at the hotel is excellent.

White Palace Hotel is a budget hotel, whereby you can enjoy Free WiFi with complimentary breakfast, very close to bazar whereby you can have cheap shopping.

During our stay, some renovation was in process and we had to shift our floor as the room was very noisy... service standard was average.

hidden in pratunum is this average hotel for your stay.
basic necessities, but very cold to sleep at night (even when we adjusted the temperature to be highest.)

no good sound proof, you can hear almost everything, kids screaming along the walk way.
there is not much maintainence for this place, but we are out most of the day, all we need is the space and sleep and bath right? it is very safe, still.

with that price you pay, there shld be better ones out there!
never the less, its very convenient with many small good eateries and shopping around.

you can walk to indra square, pratunum mall, mbk etc.

btw its very near to baiyoke sky hotel so its a good landmark.

This was my third visit to Bangkok & we decided that come what may we would stay in Pratunam - on a budget & hence started our self infliction of the pain that came to be know as the White Palace.

I wouldn't want to ramble on about how bad my experience was - Instead I'll conform & list it down as one pro & oh so many cons:

Pro:
- Great Location: Right bang in the center of the city & in close proximity to shopping centers.
They have an awesome inhouse Massage center where you can get a brilliant foot massage, however not listing this as a pro, cause there are dime a dozen of these all over the place at lower prices!

Cons:
- Terrible room: The wood/laminate on the furniture was peeling off, airconditioners refused to work most times, bed-bugs (had to change our room 3 times!), the sheets are old & soiled.
- Unprofessional staff: Uncooperative, rude, not helpful and disengaged staff
- Dark, dingy bathrooms
- Start your day off on a bad note with the breakfast being 1/2 served - by 1/2 i mean you only get half the items with empty trays lying all over the place.
- The hotel taxi driver tries his luck in conning you every single day (speaks volumes of the place!)
- The common areas are dirty & dusty & the housekeeping staff look like the Grim reapers.
- The cable TV doesn't work - So you lose your eyesight in the bargain of getting a horrible place to stay at.

My humble request - Don't ruin your stay in Bangkok by trying to save the extra buck & choosing this hell hole.

Room Tip: Tips to choose a good room - Look at a few hotels other than White Palace :)
