“Only flaw is the street leading to the hotel”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Cheap yet the rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable but simple

The street leading to the hotel is kind of dinghy and has a strong sewage smell, but in the hotel it was fine.

Breakfast is simple but good, plus all day free-flow coffee, tea, water & instant noodles at the lobby.

The bed is a little hard though.

Extremely convenient,
Short 10min walk to the Ratchaparok Airport Line station.
5min to Platinum Mall, 10min to Central World.

Will definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the higher floors to avoid the noise.

It looks like a 4 star hotel room but half the size. The furniture and design is modern and the lighting great but a fraction of the size. That's probably why the fee is also fits d price. Free water at lobby. Resto fronting the hotel. Grocery, malls, restos, ATM, taxis just walking distance. I don't feel safe walking the alley leading to the hotel at night though. Male bystanders lurk there and it's dark too. It would have been nice to come back to happy looking staff and cozy rooms. Wifi strong. I watched walking dead on the comfy bed. Receptionist dd wake up call on the dot. Bravo.

The taxi driver found the hotel with difficulty :) The streets were plenty with people, we asked them, finally got the hotel.

The staff is very kindly and helpful. Free water, café and tea possibilities all the day. Rooms are not to big, but with comfortable beds and everything is clean! Breakfast was simple, but delicious and variety of meals. Free and good quality of wifi access in the rooms also :)

The mall, markets and many shops are very close.

Upon arrival at this hotel, frankly I was not impressed. Located at a slip road where I would not expect a hotel to be; simple lobby; small breakfast area filled with Ikea lookalikes; tiny elevator; small room; minimal toiletries; no coffee or tea in the room though there is a kettle.

However, this place really grows on you. And slowly, I grew to love it.

Excellent service from the reception as they are always ready to answer your queries at any time of the day and always greeting you whenever you walk through the door.

Breakfast is simple but sufficient and they serve meiji milk! Free Maggie noodles, bottled water, coffee and tea, microwave usage is available at the lobby 24 hours a day, so you don't have to worry about being hungry. If you want some coffee or tea in your room, just take the supplies from the lobby and bring them to your room.

We always return to a clean room every day. Some thing we really appreciate after a long day of walking. One point to highlight; the bed is quite hard. I personally don't really like it as I prefer a plushy feel, but my friends love it.

TV channels are limited, but they have the essentials (at least for me), like fox movie and HBO. Not so much of children channels though.

Location is pretty good, as Pratunam market is right below the hotel and Platinum mall is just opposite the road. However, it is quite a distance from the BTS, about 10 minutes away. The hotel is located right between the BTS and airport line, so it does makes things easy whether travelling to and fro the airport or to other locations.

A 7-11 is located right at the entrance of the slip road to the hotel and there is a 24-hr MacDonalds right at the main street, thus you don't have to worry about being hungry at any time of the day.

If you are looking for a place with good location, simplicity at good rates, this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Bring your own toiletries and brace yourself when walking through the slip road to get to the hotel...

This Hotel is well situated for those interested in shopping or perhaps have business in the area.
Nice clean friendly hotel, pleasant staff always smiling and ready to help.
The rooms are compact but more than adequate for a short stay, vety clean, nicely decorated, comfortable and has everything you need.

Room Tip: Ask for cups and tea or coffee etc, its free from reception as is bottled water but you need to ask...

Was there in March, the hotel is hidden in a corner of a quiet street. The first impression was not good actually, i can smell the sewage out side of the hotel.

The lobby has no air-conditioning at night when checked, they had some fan turned on. Check in was smooth, and stepping into the room, i have no regret! Room is consider small but clean and new. Location is great if you are a Pratunam shopper, its near Platinum mall, pratunam wholesale market. Breakfast is average, and service is good.
