“Affordable hotel but not so great location”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights, my staying experience was not bad, however I feel that this hotel has been a little bit overrated. Okey hotel facilities were generally good, my room was big enough and reasonably clean, AC no problem, TV no problem, windows got nice views. The hotel staffs (including reception counter)were very polite and always had smile on their face, however some of them did not speak good English therefore might have little problems in communication. One big downside about this hotel is the internet: this hotel did not provide free internet, so I had to buy internet usage card from reception and they charged for every 30 mins(and price was not cheap either), for a 4-star hotel I thought this was unacceptable. Another downside is the location, the hotel's location was very inconvenient in my opinion, there was no bus/MRT/BTS stations around the place and I had to take taxi every time if I wanted to go somewhere, there was a small shopping mall under the hotel building but not much to explore, you could also find a 7-11 shop on the right direction of the main road and it would take about 2-3 mins walking. Breakfast was not bad, nothing fancy though. I did tried once the hotel restaurant, ordered blue prawn tom yum goong soup and chicken fried with cashew nut, quite nice, spent around 500 bahts, which was not cheap just like all hotel restaurants. Overall this hotel is not bad but definitely not the best around, there are always many affordable hotels in Bangkok with better locations if (and many with free internet), keep in mind that in big city like Bangkok the hotel location is always very important.

Public area ok but rooms needs big overhaul as this hotel has had the best already a long time ago. We only used it for one night and that was long enough. Morning breakfast felt like being in the zoo although choice and quality quite good. Wifi internet cost (thb300 an hour) absurd.

In the middle of nowhere, Prince Palace feels like a trip back to 80' glam aesthetics. The rooms are admittedly spacious and well kept but when my girlfriend and I were placed in a room with 2 beds and requested to be switched to a single queens sized we were met with resistance and were not swapped. This is after we were put in a smoking room and had to change from that; they told us that we had requested such a room (which we obviously did not). The restaurants attached where retardedly expensive, even for Bangkok, and the staff was obnoxious and unhelpful.

Stayed here at the start of July and could not fault the hotel at all! Its in a great location with plenty of tok toks and taxis waiting outside to take you to all of the attractions. It's around 10 in a tok tok to get to Koh San road. Great stay and will defiantly go back there again!

We stayed there for 3 nights.
The hotel is giant, it is not hotel but a neighborhood….
4 towers and you can walk a lot if you are in the suite tower where we were.
The hotel looks very good. Rooms are pleasant.
Lovely swimming pool with a very good music.
Breakfast is OK.

Service is very bad.
Since long distances you may wait a long time for service.
We have waited for more than 30 minutes for our language and this is after a few pushing phone calls.
Don’t look below the beds. Dirty, dirty, dirty…. Looks like they never clean there.
The rooms are very noisy, because of the market below, because of the air conditioning, because of the Muezzin in the Mosque nearby.
We needed a big taxi, they wouldn’t want to help us with it. “we have only small taxi. Take two to the airport.” We, tourists, found a solution very easily, why can’t they give this little service?
It was only an example.
True that there are many stores downstairs, but nothing to tell home about.
The bad thing is that at night the place looks abandoned.
No restaurants, no massage places. Nothing !!!!!
Not fun.

Had four nights in a three bedroom suite and it was a little outdated. The staff were very friendly and helpful whenever we needed them. However, for the price I would stay somewhere else if a go back to Bangkok,
