Reviewed August 14, 2012

I had decided to book this hotel for my first time travel to Bangkok as I read a lot of the good review for this hotel.

If you are there for a shopping trip, the hotel's location was definitely strong and suitable. The wholesale market right below the hotel that operates from morning 4am till midnight; 10 minutes walk to Platinum mall, 15-20 minutes walk to Central World and Big C.

Average breakfast with limited choice, but it could be accepted with the low room rate. Free wifi service, very strong connection as they have provided modems on each floor. Room was big and clean but with a small toilet; the sink is outside the toilet was just made me felt uncomfortable.

Not recommended for women travellers because it needs to walk through a slightly dark street then will only arrived to the hotel.

First visit to the hotel. Clean, reasonable pricing, good location, friendly & helpful staff. Free wifi available for me to check emails, upload phots anytime I want. You can get whatever you want at a very cheap price. My family & I enjoyed ourselves very much. Wil definitely visit again!! :)

Room Tip: Print out the directions for Budacco in Thai to show drivers. Its available @ their website.

i stayed here for 3 nights from 13-16 jul and it was a wonderful, wonderful experience! would definitely make this my choice hotel whenever im in bangkok again.

location: wonderful! located beside baiyoke sky hotel and right in the middle of the night market. street food galore! it's inside one of the alleys and not located right by the main streets so noise is no issue. 5-10 minute walk to platinum mall. tuk tuks and taxis readily available. airport rail is also nearby (can be a bumpy walk though) massage parlours nearby too. many 7-11s all around, so if you need anything you can always pick something up there

Staff: friendly, helpful, wonderful! on our last day, they saved us alot of trouble by offering us a van (1,300 baht) that would transport our entire party of 7 (including all our many baggages) to the hotel. slightly pricier than taxis, but saved us alot of hassle. we were always greeted with a smile!

buffet breakfast: small selection (western style), but you're in thailand! go feast on the awesome street food.

room: clean, big enough, colour themed rooms (we got the pink room as per request) - they have different coloured rooms on the same floor, so if youre travelling in a grp everyone can get the room colour of their choice. basic toiletries were provided - towels, shower gel and shampoo, no toothbrushes.

misc: oh, free wi-fi! they have wifi modems on each floor so no worries about poor connection. the hotel doesnt offer money changing too. international plugs available, so no worries about forgetting to bring your adaptors

it was our first time staying in this hotel... the staff was friendly and helpful.. however, my friends and i have encountered unfortunate incident... i strongly encourage people who wanted to stay in this hotel, DO NOT USE their Safe box as is NOT safe... please keep all your valuable stuff with you at all times... the room is simple for short trip n also if you like shopping at pratunum market. The service crews is polite and nice. as this is quite new.. overall i would say is ok.

We have stayed in Budacco for 4 nights and 5 days in a pink Oriental room. We were so overwhelmed with the service this hotel offers. From the very friendly smiles and always ready to help hotel staff, to the clean rooms, very convenient location and the rates that they have.
This is definitely a place to be. A budget hotel with a 5 star hotel standard. Thank you Budacco for the warm accommodation. Till our next Bangkok trip! Thank you Nat for the beautiful smile that welcomed us! -- Ava and Franz

I've just returned from a 2 nights stay in Budacco.

Pros:
It has pretty and comfortable room. (The bed is comfy)
It's located in the center of pratunam shopping area and near Platinum shopping mall.
The staffs (including the security guards) were friendly and nice.
It has nice buffet breakfast (unbelievable that there was even breakfast given the cheap room rates)
Cheap room rates.
Free wi-fi through the building.


Cons:
Thin walls
I stayed in room 34 and the view outside the window was actually into someone's else kitchen area.
The sink is outside the toilet.
The hotel is difficult to locate because its in a small street (unless you have been there before)
The shopping streets leading to the hotel from the main road is very crowded and difficult to walk by.
It's absoluely difficult for taxi drivers to locate the hotel thus always tell them you are going to Baiyoke Sky. (which is just beside). You can alight and walk over.


Overall, it's a great experience as my friends and I are there for a shopping trip and we don't spend much time in the room, but don't get your expections too high.
However, if you are planning to bring parents along, you might want to find another hotel with a more convenient location as walking through the shopping streets to get to the hotel is quite a chore, especially under the hot sun.
You can arrange a taxi/mini van transport from hotel to the airport.
And it was really nice of their staffs' help in hauling our heavy luggages into our transport even it was raining heavily.
Do reserve early as it's always fully booked.
