“cheap and comfy new hotel”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Check in was great, they gave me early check in around 11 am. Room was big enough with new LCD tv, nice jacuzzi style bathroom, full bathroom amenities except toothbrush . Breakfast was superb with alot of choice from buns to croissant even thai food like pad thai etc, try to show up early for breakfast cause it's pretty crowded most of the time. .they provide tuk tuk to rent from hotel to pratunam area for cheap price, hotel taxi was expensive compare to meter taxi almost double the fare but more safer and driver spoke english. Restaurant staff bit slow they just wait at the cashier doing nothing sometimes so we must waive or call them loudly. Room service was good and cheap but sometimes you have dificulty to comunicate with them. Hotel location is very near to rachatewi bts station ony couple hundreds meter

Room quite small but spacious bathroom. Aircond not cold. No coffee/tea in the room. Breakfast- not nice.

Distance to nearest BTS: walk approx 3 mins.
Distance to Platinum Mall: 10 mins (take a taxi there, cost you only 35 baht)

The Good
--------------

5 mins from Ratanchewi BTS
Value for money triple room
No hassles check in
Nice swimming pool
Close to 7 eleven

The Bad
------------

Breakfast buffet spread can get monotonous if you are staying for more than 2 days; we stayed 5 days.

The Ugly
------------
Need more sensitive front staff, more bordering on rude. I find this common across hotels in Bangkok and Pattaya

Overall excellently located value for money hotel. Definitely recommend.

It is a very convenient place to stay in Bangkok. It is at the City but not very much crowded. You can walk to Sukhumvit Road or take tuk-tuk for 50 Bath. Don't take more than that. It is also walking distance to BTS Ratchathewi Station. You can also get a nice taste of Thailand breakfast. It cost around 380Bath from BKK Airport, that already includes the Toll and 50 Bath Fee. They take in Clients coming from late arrivals. The concierge will also help you get tuk-tuk for your next tourist destination.

We spent 7 nights at this hotel and we found a fantastic value-for-money option in Bangkok. It's a big, modern building with lots of rooms, a restaurant on the ground floor (where breakfast takes place). Check-in and check-out procedures were correct, but not very polite, Thai smile is absent on the reception girls faces, but you get the service you need. There are more than 10 storeys and only three lifts, so you had to wait quite a while to go up or down on them. There's only AC on the restaurant and lobby but not on the common areas, hallways on each floor, so you really get the difference in temperature, due to high temps in Bangkok always. Also, the first day in our room it was really hot, and the AC was not enough to chill the room up until like the whole night with the AC on. After that, it was easier to cool it down after each day of sightseeing.

The room is basic but comfortable. The bed and linens are ok, as well as towels quality. There's a desk with a chair and an electric water heater for making coffee or tea, but no coffee or tea supplies. There's also a fridge, which is very convenient for keeping water cool. The bathroom is nice and comfortable, except for not having a curtain for the bathtub, so each time you have a shower, the whole bathroom gets wet. If you're picky with this kind of details, don't go there!

Breakfast is always crowded, because the hotel is big and the restaurant space is not big enough for all the guests. We always had to beg for a table (almost all community tables) and even for clean cups, there was almost always not enough cups or food. The food selection is dedicated to Asian habits, not much for Western guests like us. Only some cereal, bread, butter and jam, so we always kept some food in our fridge to complete the breakfast. Also it's so crowded and people always rush and almost 'fight' to get food or coffee, that it's really stressful, and for us it was not a good way of starting the day. So sometimes we had breakfast directly in our room. Again, if you're picky with this kind of things, don't go there.

The location is excellent, just 10 minutes away from the MBK shopping mall, and only 300m to the MRT station, which is so very convenient. You have a 7-eleven store close to the hotel as well. It's also close to the klong station as well, which we found so convenient and fun! And also you can explore inside the 'soi's' around. It's so Bangkok!

In terms of cleaniness it's ok. They clean the room every day and it's fine. But common areas are not spotless clean. We could rest peacefully at night, which we appreciate a lot!

So in all, if you're not picky and you need to save some money for the rest of the trip, I recommend you go here, it's very good value for money and the location is simply awesome!

I booked a room in this hotel for 4 nights - twin bed through their website. There was no problem on booking this hotel. There was a credit card guarantee, however you could pay it on cash upon your arrival. My room was spacious and the bathroom was clean. There were 2 bottles of mineral water everyday in your mini fridge.

This hotel is located at Ratchathewi, you could walk for less than 8 minutes to the BTS Ratchathewi. There was also seven-eleven kiosk next to the hotel in case you need some soaps or snacks. Moreover, you don't need to worry of hunger pain because near the hotel there were some street food and delicious restaurants. In case you got pain in your body or feet after a long walk, there was some massage places next to the hotel cost 200 THB for 60 minutes feet massage and 200 THB for 60 minutes for Thai body massage.

The receptionists were also great. As a first timer to Bangkok, they gave us information what transportation to take to places in Bangkok. Bell boys and securities helped us to get taxis and they also told the taxi driver to put the meter. Moreover, you can change your large denominations to smaller denominations through the receptionists.

In the hotel, there were also washing machines in 6th Fl and in 17th Fl. If you did the laundry yourself, you only need to put 30 THB coins in the washing machine and put 30 THB coins in the drying machine. However, if you don't want to do the laundry yourself, you can use a laundry service in the hotel by contacting receptionists.

There was also buffet breakfast. It was indeed so many people with limited seats. But don't worry, there would always be empty seats. Breakfast started at 6 am - 10 am. If you don't want the crowd, you can come early for breakfast or you can come later at 9.30 am. There still be enough food for guests. So don't worry about breakfast.

There was also indoor swimming pool in 5M Floor. The swimming pool was only 85 cm deep. Maybe this pool was only for children. I am not gonna recommend you this swimming pool.

Overall, i love this hotel. I would love to be back to this hotel again on my next trip.

Room Tip: Choose higher floor. I stayed at 20th Fl. It's perfect. You could see Bangkok city from above
