“Great hotel, good location”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Cheap, great location and clean. The pool is ok, service good and you can get to Khaosan etc within 10mins by tuk tuk. You danger cheaper hotels elsewhere but you wont get the same cleaniness, rooms, pool or service. Without doubt one of the best hotels I've stayed in for 40 quid a night.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in August with my wife and two daughters. Comfortable and clean and the breakfast was great. Situated in a seedy area of town, but proved to be an oasis. Staff helpful and friendly. Would definately stay again.

I stayed here few years ago. I expected the hotel would be a lil worn out but to my suprise it wasn't. The staffs were friendly and attentive. The room was spacious, neat and clean. Just 5 minutes walk to the Nana MRT Station. Lots of good eating places or just places for a drink within the viccinity.

We just stayed at the Bel Aire Princess on the last leg of our Thailand trip after Chiang Mai and Koh Phi Phi. The hotel room was fine for the price but we found ants in both the bathroom and coffee area. Most disappointing was the customer service. After the other two cities we'd been to in Thailand and had amazing experiences in, we expected Bangkok to be a breeze to communicate in and get around. Every time we had a question, the staff provided very little help. One simple question would entail their conversation amongst each other in Thai for 10 minutes with little resolve. When I asked if they could make a reservation at a restaurant, they asked why I didn't call myself and did the restaurant not speak English. When we asked where certain restaurants were (common ones listed in Lonely Planet guides), they had no idea. While the staff were pleasant enough, they were not at all helpful - we always ended up finding our own way. This just added to our frustration with our stay in BKK and was a disappointing way to end a great trip.

We stayed here for 3 nights in the first leg of our holiday and were surprised by how much we enjoyed it! When booking accommodation for Bangkok we were just looking for something affordable, central and comfortable. The Bel-Aire Princess was all of this and more! Upon arrival staff upgraded my partner and I along with the other couple we were travelling with to Club Tribecca rooms on the 16th floor when we had only paid for a supeior room! The room was very spacious and had all the amenities needed. The bed was a bit stiff but still comfy. We had a great view of city sky scrappers!The staff were all friendly and helpful, i don't think i had to open the door myself once! Only negative i could mention would be the pool bar not being functional meaning the bartender has to go down to the lobby bar to make/get your drinks which can take 10-15 minutes.
The hotel is located in a side street of Sukhumvit with lots of construction going on morning and night but this did not become and issue at any point of the stay. The streets around the hotel were filled with street markets, restraunts,bars and ofcorse tuk tuk drivers trying to get your attention (where isnt!) - it had a great city atmosphere to it. The bar "Gullivers" just down the street made great cocktails for 150 bht. Easy walk across the street to 711 that sold most things you need. Nana sky train station was only a short stroll down the street which is a cheap, quick way around the city!
We enjoyed our stay and will defiantly be recommending the hotel to friends!

Room Tip: the higher up in the hotel the better, the buildings clear out a bit and make way for a nice view of...

We stayed here for 1 night - more central than the Amari, down a side street straight out on to market stalls, restaurants, bars - much better. - room was of a good standard and loved the water heater rather than the kettle - lack of coffee and tea, view was of the hotel being built opposite so not good. - shower was rubbish. - bar area was good and breakfast was good and had a chef cooking eggs to your request, good staff very efficient.
