BTS station opposite hotel is big priority. Breakfast is OK. Romm big. Bed and bedclothes is enjoyable. If look for bugdet hotel, take this.

Rates at the moment jan 2011 are 900 std, 970 sup and 2200 for a double.

This rate includes breakfast.

The place has a rooftop pool and gym, at the moment it is being repaired and the deck is completely removed from the lower portion of the pool and the upper level is pretty dodgy wit missing planks and stuff.

The gym is dated, but they have all you need and a smith machine so you can work out without spotters. They also have a wierd machine which allows you to cycle while doing situps, But I have found it is not possible for a human to do this simultaneously.

Have not tried the breakfast as it was not included in our first night.

We originally found the place on the net and walked in to negotiate a better rate, they gave us the room for 900 baht, no breakfast, and we found out in the room it was actually 900 with breakfast,

But we were upgraded to superior and the rooms are big, a little old but the aircon is good and they have a movie channel, NHK world and some french channel.

There is a bath, safe and good internet in the room.

When we went downstairs the next day to pay for another night the person at reception said they could do the room for 1000 baht per night with breakfast, the figure previously quoted for the smaller room the day before.

We said we had actually booked online cheaper for 970 baht for the same room online so she said to book it online rather than just pay. Then the internet didn't work downstairs and she said wait I'll do it for 950 baht with breakfast, and we were like whaa? cause she just said 1000 was the cheapest and said it would be a pain with paperwork and time... which was what I though originally.

Anyway, long story short, just get the internet rate and ask for the same deal, no-one seems to budge on these prices in bangkok which is stupid as it saves them in reservation fees and commissions and you should be able to sell walkins at a cheaper rate than online booking. As with all things in Thailand however things are unnecessarily difficult.

Umm, location wise there is nothing here, not sure why they put a bts station here but it is good for us, there is a mini mart downstairs with normal prices, some hawker food as well, there is also a cooking school next door that is ridiculously expensive, like 2800 baht for a half day course for 4 dishes. I would want to be cooking lobster and oysters at that price.

Oh also the 8th floor seems to be closed as I went through there at night as the door to the 9th floor pool was locked. Was kind of spooky as the lights weren't on and the room at the end of the hall has no lock, and is gutted for renovations, the place may be getting better once the new deck is in as at the moment it is a mess where the pool is ans you have to step over exposed pipes and stuff, would not lean on the guard rail there either if I was you.

Overall it is a nice place to stay, they have good size and comfy beds, freezing cold adjustable aircon, free water everyday, a bath so you don't have to walk through water when you go to the toilet.

I would recommend this place mainly for its location and for its free Internet. Situated right on Surasak BTS station makes it easy to access most of the attractions the city has to offer. Only one station away from the river's main pier and very few stops from the main shopping centers (Siam center, MBK etc'). Staff is quite friendly but that's about it.
It is obvious that the hotel is out dated and the maintenance is poor, even for its relatively low rates. As a guest I would expect basic comfort, which I did not get in this place. Though the rooms are quite big, equipped with frig and coffee set, yet, they are very old and the smell was too bad, in both, the rooms and in the corridors. Air-conditioner is old, noisy, and fail to run from time to time. The outdoor pool on the roof is nice but again, poorly maintained (broken deck). Breakfast is no more than average.
All in all, the hotel could use comprehensive renovation in order to be rated 3 stars. You may find it convenient (because of its location) if you are not too picky. I'm quite sure many other, and better hotels in town are offering such advantages, probably for the same money.

Stayed here a couple of times now, while its not the trendiest of places, it is cheap, convienient, clean and even has a pool! If you want to spend your days shopping, exploring and eating at good restaurants, this is the place to base yourself, as the (BTS) train is literally 10 seconds away!

Right next the the Surasak BTS Station, Exit 2, it is a very convenient location for sightseeing. Very close to the ferry terminal which takes you to the major sightseeing spots. The hotel itself is a little rundown, but the rooms are clean and has all the basic amenities: TV, DVD player, King size bed, electronic safe, kettle with coffee & tea, shower in bath. There was also a pool in the hotel and gym. The staff was really helpful and there was a nice, basic, breakfast included in the price. There was also free Wi-Fi in the room and a small internet cafe in the lobby which was very reasonably priced and colour printing was inexpensive.

What was great for me is that I came in really late, 1 A.M. and there was still someone at reception to take me to the room.

If you're just coming to do sightseeing and won't spend too long in your hotel this is a great place to stay. Very affordable and comfortable!
