One important thing in advance: At least our tripadvisor map indicated a wrong place: The place is a little more to the south, close to the Jim Thompson House!
Although located in a busy center area, the hotel is located in a quite side street.
Dempending what you want to do, the hotel is a good point of origin for a lot of possibilies: Two sky train lines are very close, what offers a good conetcion to the airport (Airport--> Phaya Thai --> Ratchathewi) and to other regions in the city.
I think the house is more designed for people, who are going to stay some time: There is a well equiped room, with a small cooking area and so on. It's really more than OK, but maybe could use here and there some renovation. We also had some problems with the wifi. After talking to the reception, we got a least connection to some of the wifi-points in the house. The staff is perfectly friendly and obliging! - We stood for only one night and therefore stressed them a lot with the usage of the public bathroom and the guarding of our luggage before check-in and after check-out, but they did not mind the hole time! Furthermore they gave a lot of Information about, how to get around. We hat a quite a good breakfast at the restaurant in the house.
Location: The big shopping Center are within a 5 Min. walk. The train line goes directly to the big market in the north (Catuchak-Park) and many other places.
One thing we recognized: Since for tourists it is much easier to get a Taximeter-taxi from here, it's almost cheaper to get to the center by a taxi from here (70 Baht) to china-town and the anxient center), than by a TukTuk from a hotel in the center (100 Baht).
Generally you should be aware of taxi driver and "friendly" people, who try to cheat you. Only go by taximeter, and don't believe in people telling you that an attraction is closed or you wear the wrong pants....
Our fazit: The Pathumwan House is a great spot for sightseeing in Bangkok for a fair amount of money. We would go there again (maybe for longer than one night ;))

Stayed here for 10 nights, the location is ideal for the city trains and peace and quiet. We had a big room overlooking Jim Thompson's house, armchairs, desk, fridge, the works.
Tried to Skype 4 times using the WiFi,it worked only once. The restaurant is a small room in the tiny courtyard serving good food but a very restricted choice. We ate breakfast elsewhere every day.

I went to Bangkok last week with my friends (5 persons including me), we stayed in Pathumwan House for 4 nights. The room was perfect, less noise, comfortable, clean. Bathroom was okay, they provided bathtub, hot and cold water. No smoking room provided by the hotel, we have to go out to smoke

When I arrived to hotel, there was one man on the phone using hotel telephone, he got his bag snatched. According to hotel staff, there is many snatchers around that area, warning letter is embed at lift by hotel.

My bad impression about the staff is because at my last day my friend asked the hotel staff to get us taxi to airport, but she refused, she "forced" us to get a van, unwillingness to help shown in her face.

Thank you so much for your review and comment. It's such a pleasure to know that you had a pleasant stay at Pathumwan House. We apologize for making customers uncomfortable. We would recommend using a taxi van to make our journey easier. We hope to accommodate you once again on your next trip to Bangkok.

We spend 5 nights here in this great hotel, we stayed 4 people in a family room, with 2 BIG bedrooms with massive beds, 2 bathrooms both with bathtub... One BIG kitchen/tv/relax/family livingroom... Everything was just amazing for the price. The restaurant aswell serves really good food, and a big breakfast. Well as all this wasn't good enough - the best thing is the central location of the hotel, on a totally quiet street - but in the heart of both of the BTS skylines!

Big and clean rooms, fridge, flatscreen, friendly staff and cheap and great food in the restaurant. We stayed here 3 nights, and there isn't one bad thing about this place, it very central located and still quiet at night. Both BTS trains is walking distances from the hotel. All in all a perfect place in the middle of buzzing Bangkok.

We've been staying in Patumwan House during stays in Bangkok since 2005. Not much has changed in that time, but the most necessary updates have been made to keep it modern enough. The hotel is located in a very central part of Bangkok (near Siam Square, just off the National Stadium BTS stop), but is down a dead end and on a khlong, so is nice and quiet -- a rarity in Bangkok! The rooms are nice and spacious, each featuring a big bed, giant wardrobe, desk and chair, refrigerator, and wet bar. There is high speed wifi available for free, as well as LAN computers in the lobby for those traveling without their own devices.

While it's not the absolute most glamorous of hotels in Bangkok, it is well appointed, excellently located, and in good shape -- I would recommend it in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: The rooms either are inside with a balcony overlooking the central atrium or outside with a view of...

The hotel was in a fantastic location however a bit hard to find at first. Breakfast was poor only had it once in the 7 days. The place was clean and the rooms always made up and kept very well. Enjoyed our stay would stay again.
