I've traveled to Bangkok a number of times. But this time, it was a company trip where I've no say over the accommodation.
Well, this is the first & last time I'm returning to this hotel. Upon entering the hotel, the lobby already has a stench smell. After checking in, took the lift up, to my horror, the whole place is so dark without sufficient lighting. Nevertheless, we settle down into the room before heading out.
Location was rather convenient with MacDonald just right beside the ground lobby. Pratunam Market minutes walk away. Platinum Fashion Mall is about 15 minutes walk away. Nevertheless, I'd still choose to stay away from this place from my next stay. Cause at night, this area can be quite rowdy.
After shopping for a day and returning back to the hotel, we became to feel a little itchy. Couldn't stand it anymore and head out to 7-eleven across the street to get pesticides. Well, that got rid of the itch. I began to wonder if they do thorough cleaning in the carpet.
There's no bedroom slippers provided, so if you're anal about it, bring your own or get a cheap slipper here. There's no safe box, if you want to request for it (my colleagues did but it came with a spoilt one); I suggest you just bring your valuables along with you. The hotel doesn't look safe to me.
Breakfast to my horror was unimaginably distasteful. Our breakfast was in the open terrace while I don't know why we aren't given the privilege to go to the indoor one. Maybe Asian and Caucasians are treated differently. Food in the indoor restaurant taste a 100 times better. If you're having breakfast at the outdoor one - I suggest MacDonald;d would be a better choice.
My 4D3N stay was quite a miserable stay minus out the shopping.
