The Patra Suvarnabhumi
Ranked #635 of 893 Hotels in Bangkok
Reviewed March 11, 2011

We stayed here at the end of our month long thailand trip, while the hotel itself is great as the rest of the reviews state the location is its killer. we are 20 yr olds going to party and it was a struggle getting home or getting to anything closer to the "city" or attractions. though you get what you paid for.

The staff were amazing to us they recommended different clubs and places to visit rather than just the normal tourist attractions and as a result we discovered one of the most incredible club scenes we had ever seen. the staff struggle to understand english and yes we once ordered water to the room and recieved maps, though laughing this off the concierge ran off to get 2 bottles incredibly quickly.

this hotel was great its being renovated right now but looks great, the trouble finding the place was a problem too but the hotel obviously has worked this out and made (business card size) instructions to give to taxi drivers and after about 5 minutes of looking at it they usually know where to go.

all in all i strongly recommend this place if you don't mind staying out of the city and paying about 100baht to get to the city and back, we didn't and thoroughly enjoyed our stay

If you simply want a cheap place to stay within 20 minutes of the airport, Patra Place will be a good choice. The people there are incredibly nice and will be eager to show their interest in you as long as you are visible. Once in your room, you no longer exist. Your room might be cleaned or it might not. Telephone requests for anything other than wake-up calls do not produce action. If you really need something, you must go to the reception desk, write it down for them and wave your arms around to show you really want it. Then it will happen. The issue here is not that they are unwilling, its only that they really don't understand spoken English over the phone. The food in the restaurant is superb however and the breakfast buffet is world-class. The rooms are clean, and, if you want your room cleaned it may required a trip to the reception desk. Finally if you love the sound of bad Karaoke singing wafting into your room from the ground floor restaurant until 1am, this is the place for you. All in all, I found Patra Place charming and terrific value for money. The room was spacious and clean, there was a little kitchen with microwave and the wireless signal was strong and consistent.

This hotel is in the Ramkhamhaeng area, close to the airport but a bit far from the main tourist attractions in Bangkok (i.e. Grand Palace, Wat Po, Wat Phra Kaew, etc..) . It is also not far from the airport. I believe the hotel is owned by the same company that owns the much nicer Grand Diamond Suites hotel in Pratunam, so the hotel is clean and well-managed, and the staff well-trained and polite. I was fortunate to be upgraded to the larger suite, which was very roomy and featured a kitchen and dining area (although I didn't use these). The breakfast buffet was good for a hotel in this price range. The hotel is a very long walk or short taxi to the main road where you will find the large shopping center Mall Ramkhamhaeng. This area caters primarily to Thai people, but there are some Western-style restaurants (though mostly fast food like McDonald's and KFC).
