FX Hotel Metrolink Makkasan
Ranked #226 of 887 Hotels in Bangkok
Reviewed February 15, 2013

I chose this hotel because I wasn’t sure what to do or where to go in Bangkok. It turned out to be a good choice.

Right off the airport metro line and right near another line going throughout the whole city. It was very easy to get around.

If you’re just into temples then it’s a 10-15 minute train ride to Hua Lamphong, and then a 5 -10 minute taxi to the main temples in Bangkok.

Weekend market is a 15 minute train ride towards Bang su.

Clubbing including famous cowboy red-light district is 1 stop (2 minutes) train ride south.

To get to the famous paragon shopping mall it’s about 20-25 minutes one MRT station to sukhumvit and then a short walk to the sky train to Siam.

Airport is 15-20 minutes by train.

The hotel itself is very clean. Our rooms were in perfect order and the washrooms are also very clean. Walls are thick so no noise from neighbors. Breakfast was great and enough selection to keep me interested for 5 days.

The hotel staff is super friendly and helpful, some of the friendliest hotel staff I’ve ever met.

I highly recommend staying at this hotel. I would stay there again in the future.

Is a simple hotel, and with simple rooms.
Perfect for a visit to BKK on a budget.
Great VALUE!

Not exactly on city center but easy accessible by subway or taxi.

Breakfast was simple but I could not also expect much more.

Costumer service was also great - my credit card was booked 2 times (confusion on check out). After realizing the problem, but they promptly corrected the situation (email communication).

We selected Unico based on the great reviews here on trip advisor. I'm so glad we chose this hotel! We were in Bangkok for about 4 days and needed to use the metro to get around, this hotel fit the bill nicely because it is located literally steps from the Phetchubari MRT metro station. After a long day of touring Bangkok it is really nice to be able to step off the metro and right through the doors of your hotel. The staff were impressive from the moment we stepped foot in Unico, they gave us refreshing tea literally as soon as we pulled up to the counter for check in. Some one is immediately available to help you with your luggage and to show you your room. The hotel rooms are very clean and modern. Wifi is available in the rooms and is free of charge. Wifi speeds were plenty sufficient for my personal facebook, blogging, email, web surfing needs. There are also 2 computers down in the lobby for your use. Rooms include a safe for storing your personal belongings which is a nice feature. Bathroom, shower and sink were clean and well maintained. There is also a fitness room and small pool on the top level. Breakfast is served buffet style in a large dining room near the entrance. Staff always great you when you arrive and leave for the day. This is a really great choice for your stay in Bangkok.

Got a superior room for about USD50 with a complimentary breakfast; and was not disappointed at all. The reception service, housekeeping and the breakfast were great. Of course, they have got nice and wonderful staff there. Booked and paid thro' Agoda. No further deposit is required on arrival. Enjoyed the clean room, comfortable bed and the free in-room wifi was speedy too. Recommedned for couple or business for a night or two. Nearest MRT station is Phetchaburi, Exit 3 and the hotel is on your right side ~ it is about 4 minutes walk away. However, the nearest Airport Rail Link station is Makkasan about 18 mins walk, south direction towards the MRT & hotel.

One of the beauties of a city with an efficient system of public transport is that location of your hotel is not a big concern if it is well connected. Unico Premier Metrolink is a perfect example of the above assertion. Located just 300 metres from Makassan aiport link train station and 50 metres from Metro rail Phatchaburi station, the hotel provides great opportunity for access to all landmarks and shopping areas despite sitting in the middle of practically nothing of interest. The hotel is flanked by one massage parlour and a small eatery and when you go a bit ahead also you get no shops of interest.

If you turn right from hotel entrance door and take take a left turn on the main road you find a 7 Eleven, few eating places, Amari Atrium Hotel, Le Belle entertainment district, a pier and so on.

The hotel affords good comforts to the guests, The rooms are elegantly decorated, although the hotel does not provide complementary items like comb, toothbrush or shaving razor. The lobby has two internet PCs and the hotel provides complimentary wifi with good speed,

Breakfast is OK type. The front desk staff are well conversant in English and are cheerful. Sukumvit, the happening place is one station away in Metro.

This hotel is definitely a budget traveller's delight.

Room Tip: Make a request for early check in even if you reached before 2.00 PM. In my case the front staff che...

During our first time visit in Bangkok we were looking for a clean room, not to expensive, but not yet extreme low budget, wifi and close by all public transport (metro, skytrain and airport).
Since we had a 1500 bath room and all the above, metrolink was the perfect option to start our Thailand trip.

Only con was the "spa and swimming pool". I think it's a 2 by 3 swimming pool, which is ok to refresh yourself, but certainly not possible to have a swim.
