“A good house keeping hotel in Bangkok”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

Good house keeping hotel in Bangkok, which gives you a feeling as if you are at home....Professionally managed hotel in the heart of town,which gives you value for your money. Well located in commercial hub strongly recommend for stay.

I have stayed in this hotel and recommended many Sri Lankans to this hotel... This location is the best for Sri lankans to do Shopping in pratunam...and also near to Sri Lankan Restaurant... for the price you pay dont expect 5 star quality... but the Breakfast they provide is really worth .. I can say I paid for the breakfast and got accommodation free.... For Europeans and Amercians may be this location is not good as they dont do shopping around Pratunam rather than hanging around Sukhumvith area.. for the Sri lankans this hotel is a heaven for shopping lovers like ..

We were advised to stay at this hotel by a local "tourist information" centre.We booked for 3 nights before seeing the place.BIG MISTAKE!!!The hotel is located up a grubby side street.The staff at reception were disinterested and spoke in Thai ,making us feel left out when we tried to check in.The whole hotel is dingy and in serious need of a makeover.The room was filthy with old,mismatched furniture,covered in scratches and marks.The carpet was filthy too with stains and cigarette burns.You don't want to touch anything in the grotty rooms,let alone stay there.A list of charges for damaging anything in the rooms is laughable.The prices for replacing anything are sky high.Breakfast was adequate and staff serving were fine.Again there is a sign warning you that you will be charged if you overfill your plate and leave your breakfast.This hotel is the worst I have ever stayed in,it's dirty,dark,smelly,has no view,the staff are rude and unhelpful...I could go on forever.Read the other reviews,they are so awful they're laughable.

We arrived here yesterday from phuket. We went from 5 star hotel to this junk. The staffs are not helpful. Barely speaks English. I booked this hotel 5 months in advance because I didn't want to worry about getting a hotel once we arrived in bangkok. Really all that matters and what I really expected based on the photos I've seen too was just good location, good service and obviously clean room. When we arrived here they gave us 2 single beds in a small room, cockroaches and rubbish (receipts,plastic) from previous people that used the room. Toilet is disgusting. Hot water not hot enough. And low [--] shower.
When I went at the reception to complain and showed them the print out of my hotel booking( bcos most of the things on the list isn't what we have in the room such as hair dryer, shaving mirror, sofa bed and obviously a dbl bed.), they look unhappy to help and I think the manager also said ("ok ok change hotel) then he said all room are the same but we will move u to a double bed today because yesterday all rooms are booked".
Considering I booked it months ago they should have enough notice to vacant the correct room that I booked. The list can go on. I'm very disappointed. Breakfast isn't that good either. Just like I said any other hotel would be better.

we stayed for a couple of nights in this hotel after staying for 4 nights at bangkok city suites nearby.we chose this hotel due to its central location.the rooms were clean though they looked a bit dated.the view from the window was a lot of junk lying around
the carpets had lot of stains though they seemed to be clean otherwise
good wifi,the best part was the lovely breakfast.they had good variety and service was impeccable.the staff ensured that everything was refilled in time unlike the pathetic staff at bangkok city suites who were always nonexistent at the breakfast counters
my complain for this hotel was the terrible bed.it is a springy kind of bed which makes a lot of noise when you toss over the side,thereby disturbing your partner who may be fast asleep
also the hotel does not have a good tour desk,bangkok city suites had a very good travel desk offering reasonably priced tours all over babgkok
but we found savari international run by a srilankan gentleman just outside the hotel who gave us amazing prices for siam niramit and dreamworld.the gentleman and his lady staff are really nice people.i would highly recommend savari for booking al your tours

Having checked out of the Ramada my partner was suddenly called away to a meeting at her Thai Insurance company, and unexpectedly becalmed in Bkk I headed for my 'standby' hotel, the PJ. Paying the not inconsiderable 'walk in rate' I insisted on a front room with a decent bed. I won't reveal the room number as it will be heavily subscribed if I do, but the bed was great, air noisy but effective, bathroom functional (without the tiny moths) & a view of the Baiyoke Tower with a colossal BMW advert trying unsuccessfully to persuade me of something or other about their rather creasy designs. The star of the show is the wonderful Mai Tai in the bar (b.o.g.o.f, happy hour is curiously 6pm to 8pm) followed by two Rusty Nails (bar complete with live band) that could stop a horse. Great. Breakfast is good, with both asian and western choices, so my usual cheese & tomato omelette worked well. I enjoyed my 'one nighter' with the only slight downside being an unusually brusque reception on arrival. Anyone for charm school?

Room Tip: Pay the rack rate and insist on a room with good bed overlooking the courtyard. It won't matter...

The hotel is clean enough...Not bad for family who bring their kids. The hotel room is not as good as five star hotel. But Enough to sleep.. The breakfast is OK ..

All i can say is : NOT BAD FOR BUDGET HOTEL

Please don't expect more than 2 star hotel...
