“great place great location! great staff!”
Reviewed May 1, 2010

hi well what can i say i think the bad review at the top is very very wrong! we use this hotel when we stay in bangkok and its great! yes the staff have very little english speaking, but i dont have any chineese under my belt apart from hello and goodbye and we did fine, nice old styled rooms comfy beds! quiet so you get a good nights sleep, the food was good but a little expensive for the hotel, easy walk to the china town markets and the asian markets that you can lose yourself in! train station ten mins walk, the river close by, and if you ask the concierge for a taxi, mini bus or for directions for anywhere he will get it or sort it for you i think just a little friendliness and patience is needed after all the hotel is in china town you would expect them to be chineese! if you get lost when walking around just ask a police officer on almost every busy street corner and they will guide you back! take a business card from the hotel to show taxis or police! beats the hell out of khosan road! found it on agoda but booked direct, would reccomend you try it.

Absolutely horrible experience. This hotel and its staff are now geared toward grabbing every penny they can from you, while offering no service whatsoever. They don't know where anything is- they don't have access to minivans- the front desk clerk hadn't even heard of such a thing. They offer no input nor support, which I believe is an essential part of running a decent hotel. If you stay here, you'll be completely isolated, and will receive no suggestions as to what to do or where to go. They insult you- their last words were to ask me if I had paid for $1 bag of cashews, after staying there a week and a half, as they as they asked me to wait while they checked the room (to make sure I hadn't stolen their telephone, I suppose).

I bumped into two other people who had the same experience as I: given HORRIBLE, dirty rooms, with cigarette burns on the carpets, and simply filthy. Had to fight my way up the ladder until I finally got a semblance of what had been promised. Website says "exclusive internet service", while they mean to say "excludes internet service." Website is so filled with options, you can't decipher what you're paying for- probably intentional, as they are upfront about nothing.

Breakfast was barely edible- only a little lousy white bread and old fruit. Overcharged for laundry service on final bill- check their totals carefully!

This place is barely servicable, and is only directed toward making and saving every penny they can, while clients suffer. STAY AWAY FROM THIS DUMP! You'd be more comfortable in one f the food carts out front!

I would like to appreciate the whole staff of China Town Hotel. Despite of language problem they managed their duties so well and extended their coperation to the fullest.

The hotel is small, but a nice place to stay. I sincerely want to extend my thanks to the hotel manager, who wrote imp. things for us in writing (in english as well as thai) so that we can find places to visit easily and come back to the hotel without getting lost.

I will surely stay there during my next visit.
