“Clean and Convenient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

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!

The hotel is close to Ratchatewi BTS and Siam is just next stasion after Ratchatewi stasion, so it's really good point to this hotel. The room is nice, not really big but comfort enough to us. The hot & cold shower is working, the air conditioner is good. The Bed is quite hard but that's fine. Except the escalator with no air conditioner and the TV channel with only Thai & China language, others is good.

This hotel may not be the most modern, however, at prices rivaling guesthouse accommodation, it's certainly good value for money. Also, unlike a guesthouse you're supplied with "hotel style" service, which makes it a very good option. Although somewhat tired and dated, the located is very good, all rooms are neat, clean and of a good size with modern facilities. Overall, when compared with the nearby guesthouses, for another 50 - 100 Baht, the Bangkok City Hotel is well worthwhile and far superior.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on an upper level with a good view.

The hotel is located around central heart of some attractive landmarks nearby Petchburi Road, Ratchathewi and just 5 minutes walk or 0.5 km from the Ratchathewi Station (BTS).

Convenient shop like 7-11 just few steps away the hotel. For eateries, street foods is available all days and a few more is opening at night just beside the road with lots of local foods with cheaper price, example grilled whole-fish only Baht100 etc. Massage shops are easily found around the hotel and just few steps away also. If you can speak Chinese, the first massage shop at right of the hotel speaks Chinese (for easy communication).

As for the hotel, breakfast is included, but the place was packed with guests all morning and downside is that you will have difficulties to find a chair to sit on it for breakfast. So, wee have sitted outside the lobby area, which is more quiet and cozy than in the "eating hall".

Other than that, standard bedroom and amenities inside the room. They have a small balcony on every floor for smokers and the view is quite nice (city view).

Room Tip: You may ask the guard or hotel staff (the one standing in entrance) to get a taxi for you and they w...

I love bangkok city hotel! Location is very good. Its near with the major malls in bangkok. Lots of food stalls outside. Its near the Ratchathewi station and easy to hail a cab or tuktuk outside the hotel. Rooms are big enough and there's a bath tub and blower as well. Buffet breakfast is good, considering the amount you paid for the room. Its worth it!

We just liked the location having just got off the train.
We wanted a more budge style hotel just for the one night . It served a purpose and was clean and room was ok for what you pay.
We would not want to stay here longer as it is a basic hotel.

the hotel is conveniently located 3-5mins away from ratchatewi bts & about 10mins away from the paya thai airport railway. you can hail taxi easily just outside the main road, a very short ride away from the main shopping district. 7-11 is on the left side of the hotel and further down there is a&w. I highly recommended this massage parlour call zen tara which is on the right side of the hotel. the room was cleaned daily and the staffs were polite.

the few drawbacks would be the slow lift, slow room service and the bed was quite hard. probably because the hotel has 20 storey and i stayed at the 18th floor, it takes quite a while going up. i would probably request for middle floor the next time. breakfast eating area would not be able to accommodate all the hotel guests, it would be good to have your breakfast early.

For the pricing, I am quite satisfied with the overall stay.
