Rafael Mansion Bangkok Airport

Reviewed April 20, 2013

My husband and I stayed here for a total of 3 nights, 1 at the start of our trip and 2 at the end.

The first night we got there quite late but the staff were very helpful and efficient and the room was good. The room consisted of the usual things you expect in these types of hotel which is more than adequate. There are tea and coffee facilities in the room but the hot water is downstairs next to the lift, which you can use as much as you like. The aircon in the room worked well, which is good because Bangkok is stuffy.

As we got there late, the girl on the desk told us that food was finished but she could order us takeaway pizza or McDonalds, so we had McDonalds delivered to our room - which was a first for me!

For the second two nights at the end of our trip, they upgraded us to the next room up from standard. It was very nice of them but to be honest I couldn't see what the difference was in the rooms! She did say that everything in the room was complementary, which they didn't say before so maybe it was that. However if you are thinking about which room to go for the Standard room was just as good and is the cheapest.

In terms of location, this is fantastic if you want to be near to the airport as it is only 15 minutes drive away. (A taxi will cost you 150B from the Airport, although one cheeky guy managed to get 200B out of us because we didn't have any change!) The hotel are very good about ordering you a taxi for whatever time you need to be at the airport, just tell them the night before and they will sort it for you, and they are always on time.

If you have a few days in Bangkok and want to go sightseeing then this wouldn't be the best option for you because it is quite far away from the centre of Bangkok. However we had one day in Bangkok before we had to fly home and wanted to do some shopping. We asked the guy at the desk the best way to get into the city and he was very helpful. A taxi could cost you about 400B into the city and you may get stuck in traffic. He recommended that we take a taxi to the second to last stop on the airport monorail and take that to the end of the line to a stop called Phia Thai (that's probably not the right spelling) which has a Sky Train connection which took us straight to MBK and Siam Square. I think the Monorail was about 40B each and the Sky Train about 20B each because we only wanted to go a couple of stops. It took a little while but was well worth it to save the money. There public transport system is quite easy to follow so you wont have any problems if you have never used it before.

So if you do end up here and need to get in to the city it is possible for a couple of days, but no more than that I would say.

Overall this was a great place, helpful staff, clean, comfortable room, great location and good value for money.

Room Tip: Standard room seems to be as good as the next one up so go standard and save the money

We stayed here for one night before our flight home the next day. Although the road leading to the hotel was a little scary once we got there we were greated warmly and we able to book our taxi to the airport for the next day with no fuss. Rooms are fairly basic but represent good value for money. If you are looking for a hotel close to the airport then I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Slept a couple of hours in the early morning hours. Upon arival I was welcomed warm heartedly and directed to my room. The room was spacious and the aircondition potent enough to cool the room off in a couple of minutes. Next morning a taxi was available outside at a affordable rate. Pity this hotel is not in central Bangkok!

I stayed here for a night while on my way to Bali and I couldn't of asked for more. First the price is well worth it. The room was clean, staff(owners) were very friendly and it's super close to the airport. Air con was quite and powerful. Free Wifi (I can't live without that.lol)
I read reviews of the location being "scary"!?! I walked around and EVERYONE was super friendly, and I even hung out on a bench talking to a few people that were interested in learning english and hearing about my travels.
I stayed in Bangkok at the Amari the week before and I have to say the experience with the people near the Rafael Mansion was much more enjoyable to me.
Take a chance and walk around, just cause it looks scary doesn't mean it is...
If you walk to the end of the street there are motorbike taxis that will take you anywhere you wanna go on the cheap. Most don't have helmets though.
Also at the end of the street is a super clean market if you need to grab a few supplies.

The location is pretty scary but there was nothing but relief when the taxi pulled up to this little oasis in the desert. Lovely friendly reception staff who go the extra mile to be helpful. Good sized comfortable rooms with water & Coke in the fridge. Nice shower. Air conditioning. For the price it's great, just close your eyes on the cab ride there & back!

Not far from the airport and only stayed one night to catch early flight in morning. No place on site or near to eat so we went to the airport and ate, go to the lower level where the employees eat (much cheaper). Rooms are small clean and adequate for short stay. Staff was very friendly and helped with whatever they could. No pool or other perks on site, there are some small convenience stores down the road (short walk). Room did have a refrigerator, desk and TV. Bed was comfortable and room was quite.

Stayed her 5 nights while waiting to fly to Phuket. You would think it would be a hassle being so far from the city. That is not the case.

100 Baht to and from the AirPort where you can catch sky train to city for 45 Baht.

Or you can catch a cab from Rafael to the city for just 300 - 350 Baht

Beautiful rooms, Great Showers, Great staff, Spotless, Quiet...

Will be staying there 1 more month this trip only 6000 Baht
