My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the Bangkok City Hotel. We thought the hotel was very modern compared to the other places we stayed while in Thailand and it was cheap. We paid $86 for 2 nights (king bed).
The room was modern looking with a sleek bed and tall windows overlooking the city. It was nice. The bathroom was nice except there is only a tub with a shower handle so water got every where if you wanted to shower. The AC worked well. The bed and pillows were hard. 2 water bottles were provided each day. One thing I did not like about the room was that there is minimal lighting unless you opened the curtains but then it got really warm.
Breakfast was very good. They served the standard toast, fried eggs, cereal, congee, fried rice, fried noodle, some kind of stir fry, juices, etc. It does get busy during breakfast so seating was limited.
There is an elevator but it's small and very warm. No AC in there.
We tried to hangout in the lobby at night to use the wifi but there were a lot of mosquitoes swarming.
The hotel is close to the Ratchatewi BTS (5 min walk) which we used to go to MBK and Siam. Do not walk there (MBK/Siam)! We thought it was walking distance but it was quite a hike and it didn't help that it was 90 degrees F. out! It was only like 30B to MBK. We also took the sky train to Sukhumvit for 50B if I remember correctly. The skytrain is very easy to use.
There is a 7-11 next to the hotel and lots of restaurants and street vendors. There is a street nearby with excellent noodle soups! However not much to do at night within walking distance besides grabbing a bite or a massage.
I would stay at this hotel again. For the price and location, it was definitely worth it!
