We recently stayed here for 4 nights during our trip to Bangkok. Hotel was booked as part of a flight+hotel package deal and we were pleasantly surprised! The hotel is quite hard to locate and not right next to train station or main road, as it is located deep inside Sukhumvit soi 20 (further away from main Sukhumvit road). Nonetheless, the hotel offers a free tuk-tuk service that operates during the day. We got used to using the tuktuk service so getting in and out was a breeze! One tip for first-time visitors to the hotel: If you are arriving with luggage, you can take a train to BTS Asok then do a short walk to Sukhumvit Soi 18 or Soi 20, where you can request the hotel tuk-tuk to pick you up from the main street entrance.

Rooms are spacious, huge beds and staff is really helpful with most of our needs. We did not opt for meals so won't comment on it. There is free wi-fi and also a rooftop pool. General location is fantastic - walking distance to Terminal 21, nearby street food (highly recommend the grilled chicken stall at the entrance of Sukhumvit soi 18, near where the tuk-tuk normally drops you off!)

Thanks to the staff we had a cosy stay each night during our busy holiday!

We stayed at Privacy Suites in December and loved our stay there. It was extremely difficult to find and had to ask around a bit to find it. It is quiet and beautiful, tucked away in a corner though not far from the main road. The service was lovely but we couldn't have the complimentary breakfast as we early in the morning for a trip to the floating market (this was disappointing as most of the bigger hotels serve breakfast even at that time of the day!) Our rooms were clean and comfortable and perfect for a couple. The terrace pool was small but nice. The quietness there was a welcome relief after a busy day of shopping/sightseeing. I would definitely recommend staying at Privacy Suites.

Finding Privacy Suites is a big headache. You should think twice about staying here if you are arriving in the middle of the night. It is not easy to find and not knowing the local language does not help. It is also not very close to the sky train (however, they do give you a lift during the day).

Having said that, the rooms were awesome. The have a small kitchenette and a table for two - which makes it very cozy and romantic! The rooms look lovely and the service is decent. The wall between the bathroom and bedroom is kinda translucent so while it is fine (maybe good??) for a couple, it may not be suitable for others!

The swimming pool is small but very nice and you had a lot of privacy there ~~ suitable for a late night romantic dip in the pool.

We totally recommend Privacy Suites!

Stayed here two nights recently. No hassels, friendly staff everything you need except room service and dining, which isn't a problem if you don't mind a walk to get your meals. Free tea and coffee at reception ( and in the room too). Paid 1500 baht a night low season rate and would be happy to stay there again at that rate.

Room Tip: Only allow smoking on a couple of floors, which might be hard to get if you smoke.

I stayed here in December 2012. It was very hard checking in, even thought it was entirely paid for via an online booking site. After checking in I was very happy with my room (for the price). but unfortunately the staff were extremely rude during my stay. Something broke in my room that was entirely out of my control and by the way the staff were acting, we felt they were blaming it on my and my Thai partner until we left a few days later. If you can avoid the staff (which did not look like they wanted to be there), I recommend this hotel for the price and the comfortable bed and TV.

For the price, this hotel was great. It is close enough to the action to easily get there, but it's far enough away that you can sleep well at night. They offer a tuktuk to the main street where you can catch a taxi to elsewhere in Bangkok. The room was slightly run down, but it was very clean. The welcoming staff more than made up for any issues. Overall, I would stay here again.
The pool is much smaller than it looks, but the view is amazing! You can see all of Bangkok!
