KC Place Hotel Pratunam
Ranked #86 of 1,299 Specialty Lodging in Bangkok
Reviewed April 14, 2014

This is a well-run small hotel close to Pratunam market. My room was on the small side but was good value. The bed was very good. The only problem is the noise. The ceilings are low, the corridors are narrow, the doors are heavy and the floors are wood/laminate, so the construction of the building serves to amplify noise. Noise from adjacent rooms was mildly annoying but really noisy local guests in the corridor at 2.30 am was not acceptable. The noise continued for 20 minutes. I don't know why they bother with all the CCTV if they don't use them to monitor the night time noise. As a farang one knows it is not advisable to ask Thais to keep the noise down (they don't take kindly to comments from foreigners) so you have to cover your ears and wait for them to settle down.

The hotel is located close to the airport link station at Ratchaprarop but it is too far to walk with big bags. Leaving from the hotel, there are taxis available nearly opposite through the pedestrian gate (the taxis are in a waiting area for fares from the Bayoke Sky hotel) but these taxis will not use the meter. It is easy to walk to the end of the soi, turn right and hail a passing taxi and, if you have bags at the hotel, have him turn left into the soi to collect your bags. Most passing taxis will use the meter. If one will not, just let him go and hail the next one.

Stayed: April 2014, traveled solo

This is my second time back in KC Place. The first time was a 4 days trip to Bangkok. And KC Place was a great experience! Although I did not spend much time in the hotel (as most of time I was out shopping and exploring), I found this place really accommodating. The staff were friendly and spoke good English.

Firstly, one plus point about this hotel was that there was an affordable massage place just below the Hotel. The owner of the massage parlour is very friendly and helpful. He provided us with many tips and recommendations. Also, they provide room massages at a minimal fee. It was really awesome that you could massage and sleep immediately after that. :D

KC Place is also nearby to many of the shopping areas such as Platinum and maybe about 5 minutes tuk-tuk ride to Siam Square. In the wee hours of the morning (5am~), there is this huge market selling cheap clothes (nice dresses) outside Baiyoke Hotel. At night, it transformed into a long stretch of night market with the famous coconut ice cream and mango salad :P!

The second trip was similar to the first and it was really heart-warming when the owner of the massage parlour recognized me and my friend!

Great service and location! I definitely will be back! :)

We spent 3nights here as a group at this hotel.
Its location is excellent for shopping and being in the middle of everywhere but still located away from everything as its down a little alley.
Staff were polite and spoke good English.Had to pay a 1000baht deposit which you get back when you check out if you havent used anything extra (Note they only give you a roll of toilet paper as they have the watre spray to use. So you dont really need much more that a roll).
Room was decent with a queen bed (Bed was firm), tv, aircon(was excellent aircon which cooled the roll really fast), decent bathroon with a shower and toilet and basic toiletries, a bar fridge, a kettle and 2 free bottles of water a day.
Cafe has small but nice wetern and thai food. Massage place is nice. Can book for them to come to your room :) Laundry place is a rip off though. They charge per item.
Try they coconut icecream and fruit stands which are always outside the hotel during the day. They are delicious!!
Check out was a breeze.
Their tour desk is so helpful and has great yours available. They will also book you transfers or a taxi to the airport if you need it.
Really catered to our large group which I am very thankful for.
Only thing I would say that was bad was the soundproofing of the rooms. Theres NONE. LOLLL. But nothing the TV and aircon going wont fix if u want to drown out the hallway noise,
We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Stayed at KC Place for 2-nights in February 2014.
Woody from the hotel sent very useful directions of route to take from Suvarnabhumi airport by train to the hotel
it was easy . The train took only 40 mins and a 5 min walk from the station to the KC Place.
The check in was easy and the staff very friendly.
The hotel is clean and tidy and well located for many attractions.
The KC Place is located in a side street and there is very little through traffic.
The rooms are decent but the shower/toilet area is a little cramped.
There is no provision for breakfast but a very good restaurant is attached to the hotel.
On our departure Peter on reception ordered a taxi for Don Mueang airport for our next trip.

The location is good, near the Airport Rail Link Ratchaprarop Station and within walking distance to Pratunam Night Markets and Shopping Centres.

Cafe staff is friendly and helpful though they can only understand simple English. I love the hotel's cafe ala-carte delicacies (especially the minced pork rice at 45 baht only) as well as the massage provided by the parlour at the Hotel's Level 1. Their foot massage and foot scrub is exceptionally good and they are friendly and service is good. =)

However few points to take note, you need to give a returnable security deposit of 1,000 baht upon check-in, and there is no facial tissues in the hotel room. Hotel is rather strict about toiletries usage especially if guests are intending to ask for more (e.g. toilet paper is given an extra roll per day per room, shower gel is limited to an extra 2 pieces per day per room)

The hotel will only issue one key card for each room and this makes it very inconvenient when one roommate stays in the room and the other roommate is going out as the key card is also required to open the lobby gate.

For those with elderly or with travellers who have some physical limitations, this hotel may not be easily accessible as there is a rather steep staircase from ground floor to the lobby gate (which leads to the lift to rooms).

Room Tip: All rooms are basically the same.

The hotel is less than 200 m from the Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport Rail Link (Ratchaprarop). It is near to Pratunam market, so we have chosen to stay at this hotel for the past 4 years every times we came to Bangkok. You could also walk to many shopping centres around the Ratchaprasong shopping district. We also like the restaurant connecting to this hotel.

We checked in at Room 603 on 5 Feb, the room is at the top floor, there was noise which sound like flowing water coming from water-tank above the room. We did complain to the staff, but had not been attended to seriously.

Like many budget hotel/apartment in this part of the world, this hotel has low sound proof, so u hear noise from people talking at the corridor or people check-out early in the morning.

It would be good if the hotel could provide slipper to quest to wear in the room and also provide laundry service. We requested for late checkout to 1 PM on 10 Feb. but was declined by staff saying they had guest who wanted the room, but it didn’t seemed that the hotel was fully booked on the day (Bangkok was pretty quiet that time due to ongoing Protests). Perhaps hotel could be more flexible in their checkout policy.

Room Tip: Room facing the city (Baiyoke Hotel) has better view
