“Great Hotel, location and price!”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

This is a great hotel and I found the staff very friendly and helpful when we had issues with wifi/kettle etc. We had an amazing view of Bangkok from our balcony, coffee making facilities and a bathtub were a bonus.
The location is brilliant, it's quiet, away from heavy traffic and tourist spots near Thonburi on the BTS line. Also a short walk away is the pier where you can get a transfer to the big tourist boats and all the sites!
Walking straight forward from the hotel is a road full of local food stalls, then right brings you to a main road and lots of supermarkets etc (the Japanese restaurant was brilliant)
We got a great deal, I understand this is not a luxury hotel and it's Thailand so expect mosquitoes and bugs, I have stayed in many places in Thailand this is one I would recommend!

Room Tip: Ask for balcony facing the river

This place is good for budget travelers who don't like chaotic environment. It is about 400m from Krung Thon Buri BTS station, from where you can see the hotel. The staff was very friendly though some of them do not speak much English. But we had no trouble with communicating and even had fun doing it. As previous reviewers have mentioned it is close to Chao Phraya river and you can take a boat to visit Grand Palace, Wat Arun and Wat Pho, or even go to Khao San area.
Also if you wish to go to southern bus station (Sai Tai) you can take a taxi and can reach it within 30 minutes for about 120 bahts and without being in a traffic jam. We stayed there twice in rooms on 12th and 14th floors, rooms were refurbished and clean.

Room Tip: Try to get rooms ending with numbers 07, 08, which are not on the roadside and have a view without...

We stayed 6 nights at the hotel. The hotel rooms are in need of refurbishment. Our room on the 17th floor was spacious, the decoration and furniture were old. The mattress was rock hard. Not many tv channels.The staff were friendly although we only saw two other couples in the hotel the whole time we were there.There are two lifts in the hotel. Taxis won't go to this area because the roads are congested nearly all the time. A five minute walk gets you to the BTS station which is a big plus.

Room Tip: Old hotel in need of refurbishment.

This hotel is very close to the central ferry terminal which is an excellent way to explore the main tourist sites. The ferry boats are fast and very cheap. The hotel is also right next to a BTS station so it's quite easy to go by train to the airport, train station or the bus stations.

Some parts of the hotel are a bit old but the rooms are very clean. I think it's really good for the price currently being offered. There is a new hotel being built next door which means some noise from building works and the view is obstructed.

Go up to the top floor and you can get access to the roof and watch the sun set over Bangkok!

Stayed here for 2 nights before getting a connecting flight.
It was good value for money, hard for the taxi drivers to find so do have the address written down.
Close to the BTS and a tuk tuk ride is about 15 mins to the night life.
I would consider staying again.

The hotel is located at walking distance from the Krongthongburi station. People in Thailand do not know how to describe the direction of any place, perhaps due to language problem. The staff here is courteous and overall the stay was enjoyable and economical too.

A warm and genuinely accomodating staff will welcome you in thishotel. Clean and new towels and beddings will make you feel at home. Room was perfectly clean.
I have honestly enjoyed my stay as this hotel gave me an honest glimpse of a Thai life. The place has an easy access to major tourist site like the Grand Palace, Chao Praya River.
Going around Bangkok is easy as you have better access to major transportation mode like the BTS and Chao Praya River
