I have to agree with everyone else about this great little gem of a hotel .
I spent months searching for a hotel in this area , mainly for the shopping , I had booked the indra regent initially , but with the AUD dropping so much against the USD , this hotel was proving very expensive , so i searched and searched online for something else .
I was just about to give up when i came across the citin hotel website , I saw the price of THB 1,599 per room per night compared to USD$80 per night for the indra regent ...... I couldn't believe my luck to find such a new hotel , so close & so cheap.
The rooms I had booked where smoking rooms , even upon checkin we asked if they were smoking rooms , oh no he says , fiddles with the computer a bit , again i asked smoking rooms , yes he replied , gave me the keys and off we went down the road ...lol ... wondering why we were walking down the street instead of into the building , it was explained that we stay across the road ...oh ok i thought ...hahahaha.
we entered our rooms and were astounded by how nice and how clean they were .... searching for the ashtray , we asked the bellboy , where is the ashtray ...ohhh no smoking ! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr .
This was my only grip with the hotel , i should have been informed it was a non smoking hotel when i booked it .
Most of our days entailed day trips , that were long days , trying to get into the street in the late afternoon proved to be something that can't be done , so most days we just got out on the corner and walked down to the hotel .
There is a laundry not far up the road , amungst all the eatery carts which was good , quick and cheap .
free internet is provided in the foyer , but only have 2 computers , but it is habdy for a quick email back home .
The beds were ultra comfy , we all got a good night sleep here .
the surrounding shopping stalls , which we were told went till 11 or 12 pm , shut up early nearly every night ...9 to 10 pm was more like the time they finished , which was a shame as we had plenty of time in the night to shop .
The shopping under the indra regent also closed early , as did KFC and macdonalds .
If i was to return to Bangkok , I would definately stay here again .
keep up the good work , keep it cheap and keep it clean and this place will get the customers .
