“the place is good and is in a nice location”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

i do like the rooms, the restaurent and specially the food, but as i'm a smoker i didn't liked the part in which they call smoking rooms there is no balcony or an open space, smoking inside a closed room is not something that i prefer much, or else in other ways its a nice place to stay

ps. on the time of stay it dosen't show 2009 or 2010, thats when i was there, so i chose the earliest date i could choose

Looks rundown and old it may be, but for shoppers coming to bkk the hotel is Value for money.
Not only for location, we even got dinner vochures as we took the high floor deluxe room. My first time of getting Breakfast and Dinner with the Room.

Down side would be the King Size bed are a bit hard. Single bed seem more comfy. Another thing is the traffic, it is pretty jammed to get in or out from here. It is great for walking shoppers. It just take 5 mins to goto Platinum Fashion Mall, Pratunam Market, Big C (2 mins only), Central ... and the rest reachable by BTS Chidlom (10 mins with human Jammed).

The best rate money changer are here, just next door or in the back of it. There are 2 or 3 spot, you could check their rate first before exchange. There's even a K Bank beside for your Banking needs. [Do check your Baht Notes to have Hologram Stripes before leaving, most businesses avoid accepting old Bank notes].

Nearby Massage & Spa, basically the front of the hotel is a Erotic Massage - Venus (but don't worry, it does not come out and pull you in or any girls sitting outside. Its all behind closed doors). Tied with the Hotel would be Mr Feet, foot massage. In front of it is 7 Days, Next door would be Indara.

Back to the Hotel,

The staff are great, some do speak some english, some even speak mandarin. But most are not local thai, Burmese to be exact, their english are more fluent. Oh yes, the wifi in room is usable, not really much of a bandwidth I might add, but enough for browsing google maps for local updates, facebooking, insta ... well if you had purchase the Happy Tourist 7 days unlimited internet SIM, hotel wifi seem useless, but its good to browse home news.

In room entertainment, TV is old, channel BBC is always on mine, well as shopping in mind, TV is not even on my priority. Since Big C is just Next door, we made good use of the in room fridge, got some sliced fresh fruits, snack & drinks (hotel provide 2 bottle of 500ml drinking water daily) - beers are sold after 5pm. I bought quite alot of fresh blend fruit juice.

Plan your shopping trip the furthers first and come back for drop off, so you could carry even more for the second part of the day. :)

Room Tip: Go for Higher Floor Deluxe Room ... not only the views are Great but you also get Breakfast + Dinner...

Nice location, close to Chit Lom BTS station. A lot of shopping mall around : Central World, Platinum, still walking distance to Siam Paragon as well.
Bit hard to find the location, even my Thailand friend need to call the hotel to know the location. A lot of massage around.
The service was quite OK, understand English better.
But I don't really like the room. Bit moldy, old interior and furniture. The bed is not comfortable (hard), the bathroom also not comfortable.
I think they need to change the TV (still old cube TV), does it takes too much to buy LED television??
Last, the breakfast was OK and good service.

Just arrived from Bkk. Stayed at this inn for 2 nights. Loved its location as soon as we found it. It is just behind Arnoma Hotel which is across Central World, and the Oh. Oh, Platinum Malls where you can find almost all you want to buy under 2 roofs. The BTS Chidlom station is also a 5 min walk from this inn. Plenty of street foods to eat at very cheap price. Will definitely recommend this to friends. Btw, the price includes free breakfast which is also very satisfactory.

Location between Siam area and Pratunam, but more near to pratunam which is place to huge budget shopping. Can reach just by walk to those area.
If you walk to BTS Chidlom, it took more effort than to pratunam (about 10-15 minutes walk)
Bed, ac, hot water are comfort and works well. But room little bit spooky (maybe because the light not too bright and the curtain dark)
Breakfast very limited but the fried rice delicious.
There's no shower for closet and the shower at bathtub cannot be removed.
Overall with the cheap price this hotel very worth.

If you're going to Bangkok and want a cheap stay at one of the best shopping destricts. This hotel is the one.

The closest BTS station is Chidlom station and just within a few minutes walk, you can get to the popular CentralWorld, Platinum Mall or even further down, the Siam Paragon.

The streets near the hotel have a variety of local food at night or you could cross the bridge to try the famous Thai chicken rice or other stalls there

Breakfast wise, there was a change of variety over 4 days stayed there. Food quality is quite acceptable but tea/coffee was horrible. Be careful of the room service and keep your things properly because we had a soap and an empty container intended to be kept thrown away. Overall, the other downsides is the hotel could look abit rundown and dark + there is no warm water in the room, you have to call for it everytime you want it. Although i have to add, the warm water does come fast.

If you're someone who plans to spend the whole day out and about and only get back to the hotel to sleep. Then this hotel in its location is something i would really recommend.

Room Tip: try to choose higher floors if you can get it.

Good:
-Nice staff at the reception.
-Able to walk 5 minutes to the nearest shopping centre.
-Basic room, which was better than what I had imagined.

Bad:
-I'm not accusing that the terrible location of this Inn is next to a red-light district,
but I can guarantee you that while I was looking out from my room,
I observed the presence of burly men, acting suspicious, in broad daylight.
If that was happening in the day, I dare not look out of my window at night...

-I cannot believe that this lodging, is still operating, based on mediocre accommodation standards.
