KC Place Hotel Pratunam
Ranked #83 of 1,337 Specialty Lodging in Bangkok
Reviewed May 4, 2013

I have stayed in more than 2 dozen hotels in BKK over the years from budget 500 THB rooms near Khao San to the high end Dusit and Mandarin Oriental. Of all of them, I found KC Place to have the oddest character.

It is located quite close to Baiyoke Sky down a narrow side street that no taxi driver seems to know about, although it isn't uncommon to have good places that appear to be down dodgy side streets in BKK. Although not on their doorstep, Pratunam market & Platinum is a 5 min walk away and taxis or tuk tuks to MBK, Central etc can be found at the end of the alley.

Clearly a renovated building (done well to be fair), the lobby is small but nice and the staff were pleasant and helpful.

It has key card access to the elevator & stairs to the "apartments" and also to each "apartment" or room, although the elevator starts on the 1st floor, so you need to walk up a flight of stairs...not very convenient if you have kids.

From the feel of the sheets, the curtains, door knobs, taps, shower power and even the toilet flush, they have clearly invested a some money to try and add some quality to the experience.

However it is offset by the rooms being small and the bathrooms ridiculously small. You'll literally have to sit on the toilet at an angle as there's no space and you will be making contact with the ceiling if you're over 6ft 3"!

The quality they have invested in is let down by some cheaper furniture such as the sofa they've manage to squeeze in between the bed and the balcony window (which you cant go out on to because the AC unit is out there).

The corridors carry sound incredibly well and you will get woken up by people coming in from a night out. If you knock on a door, people in the two rooms either side will answer and if you have a conversation with a door open, you will be heard at the other end of the corridor.

It wasn't a bad stay with KC Place, at the end of the day its just a room to lay your head at night (or in the morning!) but I know there are better choices out there for the price we paid.

Room Tip: If you stay here, ask taxi drivers to take you to the airport link station near Baiyoke, which is ne...

Dear GraceCWL

Thank you very much for your review about KC Place.

We take every comment from our customers very seriously and try to improve upon it.

We are sorry you had problem with your check out, as our check out time is 12PM our staff shouldn't have rushed you out of your room.

However, it was noted that your flight was 1PM, therefore following airline recommendation for international flight you should reach the airport before 11AM. As traffic in Bangkok is renowned for its congestion, we have to usually plan at least an hour to get there, which mean you had to leave before 10AM.

We are very sorry that our staff did not explain this to you that it was a recommendation for you not to miss your flight and made you feel uneasy.

We hope you understand and decide to stay again for your next trip

Thank you

Overall a great experience. Got Wi-Fi connection. I think I managed to get a free call from my room to call taxis. Near to Baiyoke, Pratunam Market & other amenities and facilities too i.e. ATM etc. Got a decent room massage service too. All in all a great experience.

Room Tip: I reckoned any room would do. I got a connecting rooms which are a blast.

Stayed for 5 nights - 1- 6 Nov 2012. Love the location, its right at the back of Baiyoke carpark area. Although it looks a bit dark to walk at night, it was pretty safe for 2 girls to walk as there are always people walking. Also very close to the airport line.

The room seems a bit dated with the top to bottom wooden furnishing. We did not request for daily cleaning or fresh towels as we left our laptop in the rooms which did not have any safe box. The people (2 ladies) at the counter are really not welcoming. They dont make eye contact and were rather cranky when we asked questions.

On 1 of the nights at 11pm we asked if we could use the room phones to make a Macdonald delivery and they said its not in use. So we asked if they could help us call using the reception phone and the lady said this while looking at her magazine, 'Pay money then okay'. We were shocked, we really didnt mind having to pay but she didnt have to say it like that. She then muttered something to her colleague who was using the computer. By this time, we were really angry and questioned her service skills and she said 'Pay money we give service'.

We just walked off and made our way to Platinum mall at midnight to get food. Even when we checked out, the lady didnt make any eye contact. I am not sure why they acted that way and were absolutely disappointed with the service. Will definitely not stay there again.

Extremely convenient as it is right next to Indra square and down the road from platinum fashion mall. Was my second time there for 2 nights. Rooms are cosy, wifi on the 6th wasn't so good this time round but then again I wasn't there for the wifi. Apart from the wifi not having a strong signal the only other downside was there was no coffee mugs.

A very good place to stay in the heart of Pratunam Bangkok. Right behind the Sky Baiyoke, slip through the gated fence, walk between the buses and you are in the heart of the markets. Catch the train from the Airport for 40bht and it's only a 5min walk to KC Place.
Quiet hotel, could not believe how quiet. Lovely staff, thank you Peter and thank you to the lovely boys who kept running to open the doors for us. Rooms average size, Deluxe balcony rooms have a very small balcony but nice to be able to open the doors. Shower a good size. Very clean and very comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed stay. Going back again in July and staying there once more.

Room Tip: Pay the little extra and book the deluxe balcony room, you shouldn't be disappointed.

a very quiet hotel in a handy position. 100 metres from the Airport train link (quick easy transport) and 100 metres from the Pratunam markets..(cheapest shopping in Bangkok). as you walk up the alley to the hotel the noise of the city disappears behind you. Friendly staff and willing to help whenever needed, rooms are clean, tidy and serviced every day. All in this place is fantastically located and extreme value for money... the only thing was we would have liked a key card each so we could head out and back separately. The staff always assisted if one went out and the other stayed in the room by opening security doors to let you back in... we are definitely staying with them again

Room Tip: Book a deluxe balcony room. the few dollars more is worth it
