Booked my room online, when I arrived, the tried to charge me 40% over the confirmed booking price. The manager of the hotel confirmed the high price. After I complained and showed my receipt they tried to charge me about 20% over the agreed price. Unfriendly and uncooperative throughout.
As for the room (I arrived late and had to take the room due to an early morning meeting the next day): clean but run down, the pics were taken long ago, now the rooms are scuffed up and worn. Vintage and small tv, shower over the bathtub, no hot water for the sink.
Good points: it is well located near the skytrain and the emporium mall. If they changed management they could turn it around well.
Overall: this is just the type of hotel I usually love, and enjoy staying at most. However, they are so pushy, and obviously taking advantage of foreign tourists, adding hidden costs etc., and not keeping the rooms up. THere are far too many better alternatives in BKK, you can do much better for the price.
