“Nice hotel, but far from downtown”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

We stayed in this hotel for a week, it was really nice - the room was clean, quiet and enough large. I was surprised for the very tasty breakfast - every morning there was offered a bit different food. Also the employees were really friendly and helpful - we had a problem with a one day tour from one agency when no one came after us - they helped phoning to the agency and solve the problem.

The only thing - this hotel is located far from down town - they sky-train doesn't reach Grand Palace or some place near it. Later we found out that there is one boat-train in the channel which goes from area near Golden Mountain (actually it is close to Fort) to Siam and further (it should reach Nana too) - we went to Siam shopping centers with it - it is extremely cheap and fast :)

Stayed at Boss Suites in Feb 2013....3 days at first then back for 1 more night.

I wanted a place close but not too close to Nana Plaza, travelling alone but not wanting to spend nights alone....

Location was just about perfect...about 10 min walk or few min tuk tuk down Soi 4 from the craziness that is Nana. Place is tucked away down short alley. Staff were very friendly. Place doesn't look like much from outside but is quite nice inside.

For those men travelling solo but having guests--this is a very guest friendly place--no issues with checking in ladies, no issues at breakfast and very few stares or looks...this is Bangkok near Nana after all...

The night I came back to hotel was my birthday--well staff sings me happy birthday and upgrades me to a free top floor suite!

Very reasonable price for what you get here--very guest friendly..free tuk tuk up to the Suhhumvit for the skytrain....rooms are comfortable, wifi works and is free....

Only downside I remember is that the shower controls were hard to get set to "just right"

Location is not THAT close to Nana Plaza. The map is not accurate, so best if you look again for Soi 4 and about 10 minute walk (and we walk fast) from Sukhumvit Road.

Glad it was only one night. The hotel is rated "4 star" but I seriously doubt that. I also chose another "4 star" hotel after staying here, paid $20 USD more and it was much MUCH better. Let me point out why:

1. They seem to NOT like to replace things, such as the cardboard box that holds your hand soap. Reused after it was wet, stained and faded from the previous guests.

2. Towels, they are already frayed seriously on all sides and still in use. Also they are already turning an obvious shade of gray.

3. Bugs, ants. Not sure that this is a common feature of Bangkok hotels, but I did not find them at other hotels I stayed at (4-5 other hotels)

4. Weird taped up areas. Taped up light switches, walls, corners, mildews. The room looks modern but you're not seeing the details.

Although night life is abundant near Nana, where it is famous for its ladyboys, but all in all I wouldn't choose this hotel again.

Room Tip: Watch out for taxi's entering the parking lot from Soi 2 to exit onto Soi 4, in order to collect...

Hotel is named Boss Suites but we had a normal room. Not a suite but a comfortable clean newish room. The Tuk Tuk to Sukhumvit was helpful but would be better if they could pick up on the return to the hotel. The hotel sits down a side street (on the right) and can easily be missed by a first time traveler.

Room Tip: We were in the B wing up a flight of stairs. The lift is near the breakfast area.

I spent 10 days here, and I was extremely pleased. The room was comfortable, large, and clean. Check in was quick, and the staff very helpful. Housekeeping was very responsive and timely. The breakast buffet was typical for Bangkok hotels, but very good.

The spa located on upper level next to the dining room, was very good. My Thai friend and I ended up having a 60 minute Thai massage. The atmosphere there is very good, and the massage was top notch.

The hotel has a free tuk tuk service that will take you to Nana BTS. It also has a tour service located in the lobby.

The hotel itself is a bit out of the way, and perhaps a 10 minute walk to Sukumvit. Lots of street food vendors that have excellent fare, and 2 7-11's close by, as well as several good restaurants between the hotel and Sukumvit. Although the neighborhood itself may look a little shady, I never had a problem walking around there.

I can highly recommend Boss Suites, and plan on staying there again, as well as Royal President. Both are very good value for the money.

Stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed our stay, room was ok bed was comfortable smallish strange shower, breakfast wasnt as good as other hotels in Thailand we have stayed in. A 5 minute walk down the road puts you in the hussle and bussle of Bangkok nightlife also an easy stroll to the skytrain. The pool was ok but only 3 beds to be had around the half open half closed area of the pool

Room Tip: Free wifi worked ok
