“50:50”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

It's a different place from the others, I have choosen it after I was looking at their website. I liked the super moral tone in the introduction and the fact that this Hotel has a quiet long history. The lobby and the restaurant are indeed very beautiful, but the rooms in terms of decoration and age of the beds etc are the opposite. I doesn't need too much money to change this. The bathrooms are below average. The towels are old.

The breakfast crew is quiet unfriendly, but the one for dinner is very friendly and attentive. There was an intern that I can't stop praising. She tried really hard to do her job well. The food is very good.
The hotel is located near a very noisy (also at night) road, so that the beautiful garden with the swimmingpool are overshadowed by constant highway noise. The rooms are not very well isolated, so bring earplugs in case your neighbours have a different rhythm.
The reception personnel was not very motivated. When fex. I arrived the first night late and had discovered the taxi driver tried to charge much more than on the hotels website was written I asked the reception guy to help, but he said, if its this price, I had to pay it. First after I insisted he came out to help. The hotel is ok, but if you are looking for sth relaxing then another place with maybe a little higher room rate would be more suitable.

Room Tip: The B and C floor don't have Wifi, so if you are really in need for internet connection all the...

Have just returned from my latest visit - I have been staying there regularly for over 10 years now. The rooms are basic but adequate, the staff great, the rates are very reasonable and the restaurant offers a very large choice to select from. But it is the Hotel's policy of no pimps, prostitutes or drugs and non-residents not allowed past the foyer that in my mind really makes this place. Apart from the occasional door slamming or child crying, the only sound is the distant hum of traffic on the expressway nearby. A hectic day sightseeing/shopping etc in this very busy and often hot city, is ideally completed with a spell in the cool pool and delicious meal in the restaurant.

I am an unashamed Atlanta 'Groupie', having been staying there for over 25 years now. It is as good and as excellent value as ever it was. The food in the restaurant (Non residents are not welcomed) is sheer bliss. The en-suite bathrooms were due a makeover and they are now rapidly getting one. The 'Atlanta' is NOT 'Party Central' so the Full Moon brigade would not be welcome or indeed have much of a good time there. Also most unwelcome are tawdry 'Sex Tourists', their behaviour is not tolerated by the staff or management of this gem of a place. The Atlanta is the preserve of those seeking tranquillity and it is an eccentric oasis of calm amidst a frantic world.

crazy place, located at the end of a rusty soi, not far from the skytrain, the atlanta offers cheap accomodation for the brave.

pros: the food, the architecture, the location, the people, the way down the soi on a 20 baht motoride, the koffee.

bad: the moscitos: try to use the pool... maybe never, you will get eaten alive, but do it anyway, it is a great urban experience. nothing for a kid, but we knew that before, so i d say, next time i visit bangkok alone, its atlanta!

atlanta hotel! thanks for the trip

The Atlanta is located at the end of a quiet street and it is just a short walk to the BTS station to get around town.The price for this area is a great deal. The art deco design in the lobby and restaurant is amazing. The restaurant has delicious food at a fair price. The pool is a good size with plenty of seating and shade, it could use a face lift but it works just fine as is. The room was very average but it's what I would expect for the price paid.

Great budget hotel with uber amounts of character! Would definitely stay here again. It's a budget hotel, and for the really cheap room prices dont expect anything too flash, but the rooms are decent and clean, and it's fairly quiet away from the hustle and bustle of Sukhumvit Rd (2 mins walk to Sukhumvit Rd, 5 mins to nearest BTS/Sky Train station). We were a group of three girls, first time in Bangkok and found the hotel very safe to walk to and from, and the staff were really friendly. The food was also great, they cater both western and traditional thai food, and at decent prices.

...if you don't, then you are not a client and therefore your views don't matter." (Dr. Max Henn)

That sums up the Atlanta. This place strikes a bold blow against the sex tourism trade, sometimes to extremes (Thai's are not allowed as guests of guests, no matter what their profession). But, if you spend 1 night in the Sukhamvit/Nana Station/Soi Cowboy exploitation fest that shares a neighborhood with the Atlanta you will understand why. The Atlanta deserves our business precisely because it exists as it does. Atlhough the rooms are barren (but A/C works!!) and there are few amenities (TV, fridge etc), there is a pool, the restaurant is EXCELLENT, and they are extremely accommodating to changing schedules and luggage drops. My only criticism is that they proudly display a signed copy of that horrid piece of self serving writing called "eat,pray, love" in the lobby.

Room Tip: A & B levels are suites with shared bathrooms, but the C & D levels are a 4 story walk up...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The historic Atlanta Hotel in Bangkok is, literally, untouched by modern pop culture. Walking into The Atlanta is like walking into another world, a long lost world. Most of what a guest sees and hears is old and classic - and authentic. ***The Atlanta Hotel in Bangkok, founded in 1952, features many superlatives, notably, the most photographed and oldest unaltered hotel lobby in Thailand, the first hotel swimming (diving) pool in Thailand, the largest selection of Thai vegetarian dishes in the world, a unique jungle-like garden right in the middle of Bangkok. The western menu features dishes made in the 1950s style - dishes that were on the original menu of The Atlanta, and prepared in the same way. ***The historic Atlanta Hotel in Bangkok has strict policies: sex-tourists, drug users, trouble-makers, and undomesticated people are not welcome. Any of these found on the premises are dealt with summarily. Because of these strict policies, The Atlanta Hotel has many detractors or even enemies. The Atlanta Hotel upholds its principles and policies without compromise. As of 1st September 2013, smoking will no longer be permitted anywhere on the premises. ***The Atlanta Hotel is also home to destitute cats and terrapins. Injured and abandoned cats seem to find their way to The Atlanta. Many are rescued from elsewhere. There are at the time of writing 36 cats. Some live in an enclosure on one side of the garden; others live in the staff section of the hotel. The terrapins are all rescued and saved from loss of habitat. There are at the time of writing 27 terrapins. They live well in and around the pond of the jungle-like garden of The Atlanta. Two staff are employed full-time to look after the animals, and visiting vets often volunteer their services, which The Atlanta welcomes. There is a celebrated drawing by a regular guest of The Atlanta of the lobby featuring cats lying on the round sofa. The caption reads (in Italian), "Cats, the real guests of The Atlanta." Guests of The Atlanta are typically animal lovers. *** The Atlanta, being at the bottom of a lane, has no passing trade. All our guests are either regulars or friends of regulars. The Atlanta has many returning guests who have been coming to The Atlanta since the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and, of course, much later. ... more   less
