“New hotel but slipping”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

The 93 Hotel & Pratunam Pavillion messed up my booking so I have no choice but to ask the taxi driver to take us to any hotel available for the night. And after hotel hunting, we decided to take Richly Villa. They gave us two rooms, Superior - 1500baht (for 2 people) and Deluxe - 1700baht (for 3). They said deluxe is bigger but it was a joke, they were almost the same size. The furniture were too big for the small room we bumped into each other when we walk around. The king size bed was welcoming but the bedsheet was stained, gross!! The room has a tiny balcony overlooking a new building under construction, a new hotel perhaps? The washroom was so tiny you need to shower just right beside the toilet and the water pressure was not good. The rooms came with free breakfast (limited selection) and my friends said the taste was bland and the dining area was just beside the reception counter where you can expect to see the receptionist sleeping on the couch when you're taking your breakfast. The hotel location is ok for those who know the area and it's quite safe to walk, even at night. Actually, upon checking in around 9pm and after a short break, we went for hotel hunting again and booked our rooms at Grand Watergate Hotel, just nearby.

The reason I gave 'poor' to service is because the boy receptionist knows little English and therefore he can't answer much to my inquiries. Even a simple "I need extra towel" he didn't comply. It's a shame to see an effort go to waste since I can see new hotels sprouting around Pratunam and newcomer like Richly Villa didn't do much to stay competitive in this industry.

Staff were sleeping at lounge couches and none of the Thai hospitality were displayed. Some part of hotel loomed new (photo frames were still in plastic) but toilets looked old and musty. Dark area in between construction sites.

My girl and I recently stayed here:Nov 24-27. Terrible location & totally different from pictures from website & review too is not accurate. When we first arrived at 'hotel' it was around 8.30pm so it was dark alley with few street lights. Then, our room on level 6, staff couldn't get door to open! It was after 4-5 tries, he managed to open door, which handle/lock is actually faulty. All looks ok in room when we stepped in, nothing much just bed, wardrobe along narrow walk-way & super small bathroom. Sink filled with hair, got choked up after less than 1 min of running water. Same w the trap when shower. bed has sandy particles. it was bad experience, I had to book another decent to stay as it is not safe for 2 female at this location.

The Deluxe rooms are very small, with limited moving space. Because of some defects in the room, we get to change to a Superior room, which was much, much bigger, with king size bed. Amenities were limited, with wifi only available on the ground level. However, location is pretty convenient. with 8 mins walk to Pratunam Mall & market, and 15 mins walk to BTS station.

When we first entered we seemed a little shock about how small it was. Elevator was small and the rooms were too. I think it was more on how it was decorated, as there was a massive King sized bed and infront of that was a table with the tv, leaving space for only one person to walk. Bathrooms gave me a shock, shower is located right in front of the toilet, meaning you have to stand next to the toilet to shower (it's one of those bathrooms that don't have any windows/curtains to block the toilet from the shower and such, just a door. No shampoo or toiletries provided. Free wi-fi, except only able to access on the second floor and it disconnects and is quite slow.

Staff were extremely nice and while we were downstairs looking for a different hotel, they provided us with a small packet of chips, bottled water and canned drinks. Also, when we needed to transfer to the other hotel, they called for the taxi (which never showed up) so the owner of the hotel (the tuk-tuk driver) drove us all the way to the other hotel, asking directions on the way. He as well as the staff were extremely nice to us and you could tell they enjoyed their job because they were smiling and laughing a lot.

The hotel is adorned with fancy furniture and kitsch art, some of which (in corridors and rooms) remains under bubble wrap - peculiar. Bed is large and comfortable, aircon is good. Bathroom is tiny, shower over toilet. Worst was the noise, all night, from the hotel entry balcony/verandah, talking and laughing on and off. Very broken sleep. Get a room that faces away. No wifi in rooms, unless on 2nd floor where you may get lobby signal. Breakfast was fine. Taxi drivers do not know the place and not simple to find. No shampoo provided. Liquid soap contained looked mouldy - probably OK but looked awful.

Room Tip: Keep away from overlooking front entry because of noise.
