I am not very picky about accommodation when it comes to budget holiday trips, and neither did my friends. We pondered for weeks on where to stay this time around. In the end we decided to go with Siam Star Hotel. We did our booking via Booking.com.What Siam Star offered is very basic and reasonable for the price we forked out (THB1200 per night for a triple room). Credit card was needed as a guarantee but no charges was imposed for booking.

Initially I thought the closest station to the hotel was Makasan station of the Airport Link Express. We took the express link and alighted at Makasan Station. A sense of deja vu suddenly enveloped me and Lee Peng - we have been to the same station before during our last trip! Then we realized that we were suppose to get off at Rajchaprarop instead of Makasan. The mistakes were mine, I got a little confused :D So the three of us walked back and got ourselves tokens for City Link Express to Rajchaprarop.

We took a little bit of smart guessing (with a little help from the free city map available at the airport) upon getting out from Rajchaprarop station and walked towards the hotel, with the prominently visible and recognizable (from the station itself) Baiyoke Sky Hotel tower as our landmark. Siam Star is very very close to Baiyoke.

We actually walked past the soi to Siam Star. Luckily, we were pointed to the right direction by a gentleman sitting outside of another hotel that looked really nice (PR Place - and they brand themselves as a boutique hotel, but that's another post!) located just in front of Soi Rajchaprarop 5. Siam Star is located at the other end of the soi, after passing by KC Place and KC Apartment.

The hotel only accept cash and we didn't know this beforehand. So better be prepared with extra cash in hand if you plan to stay here.

Our room is located on the 3rd floor. It was clean, albeit the size and more importantly, there were no funny smells or cockroaches were not seen lurking around the room.

There were 3 plug points available in our room, just nice for the three of us. There was a standard single door refrigerator in the room too but we didn't switch it on. Clean towels and drinking water were provided on a daily basis. Water heater was functional and water pressure was good.

Front desk staffs were friendly and spoke good English but the staffs at the cafe were a bit ambivalent. There were several breakfast set meal to choose from at the cafe and it cost THB69 per set, with drinks (coffee, tea or Milo) included.

Baiyoke Sky is located just behind Siam Star and one can just walk to the hotel via it's back entrance which is not far from the hotel. Platinum Mall is about 15-20 minutes walk away from the hotel. There is also another mall that is nearer (within the same building as the Indra Regent Hotel).

Not many street food vendors were available here compared to Sukhumvit - we stayed there during our last trip. There were a few food stalls and a kiosk selling freshly made coffee located just beside Rajchaprarop City Link station.

Honestly speaking, I am not really keen on making it a point to come back and stay here, even though there was nothing really really bad or wrong about this hotel. I would not stay away from or make bad publicity about Siam Star either, simply because there are plenty of other places with better locality and offer to choose from in Pratunam area.

If you ask me to describe Siam Star Hotel in 3 words, it would be: basic, clean and decent.

I love the Pratunam area and this hotel is close to everything. Old but clean and comfortable.
Hard to find the first time (My taxi driver dumped me off 15 minutes walk away) but once you know where it is it's easy.
Staff on desk friendly and chatty . More for solo passengers on a budget but noticed some groups of younger student types in house too.
Wi Fi in room works well but no fridge.
No noise worries, but I was on the 7th floor facing an alley, not skytrain side.

Very near to shopping area, food and airport link, but it is very old. The lift is old and sometimes moving slower than needed. The receptionists speak English. The room was clean enough.

If you really want to stay in a shabby hotel down a scuffy back alley, then this is the place. I wasn't initially too concerned because the location for shopping is great. The room was at least clean, if not spartan. So after a tiring day I looked forward to a good nights sleep. No chance, between the sky train next door and the street vendors clanging behind, NOISY!

since was satisfied with the first time staying at this hotel, booked this hotel for the second time. however , was disappointed for some reasons. firstly ,one of the receptionist was quite rude. perhaps because she was tired as can see from her face. but that should not be an excuse. on the second day of stay , there was bed bug! found two beg bug ! wifi connection was not strong. however it depends on what room you get. certain room have very good connection. despite that , was satisfied with the location and the cleaning service.
