Travellers Hotel

The hotel is nicely located with 20 minutes to airport and right adjacent to Ratchadapisek MRT Station.

Small size rooms but clean and functional. Good value for money.

Stayed: October 2005

I travelled to Bangkok via Cathay Airlines - the holiday off to a good start (yes, it was MY plane that caught fire in mid air and wasted 8hrs returning to London) I missed my original hotel I booked through here.

On arrival I found there was a conference on (17-25th November) and all hotels were booked solid. After an hour of finding only dingy hotels, I returned to the hotel and placed my hands into one of the government tourist agency reps. He put me into the travellers (or travelers depending on what literature you read).

On arrival, you'll find yourself in a pretty dirty area with little to plus itself. The tout charged me 1250baht - the actual price is closer to 1100 if you book through the web.

It is however close to a Metro stop, but is quite far out (about 1/2 an hour of travel via metro and skytrain, changing once).

My first impressions of my room:
1) the toilet was full of water & wouldn't flush
2) there were many stains on the carpet and burns from irons.
3) the window locks were broken and screwed shut with screws - and the noise was horrendous, too much traffic.
4) the adjoining door was unlocked
5) the safe was mounted in a cupboard with wood glue
6) on one of the beds the sheets had foodstains, but seemed clean.

I can't think of any pluses as such. The noise got worse - mainly due to single glazing. The fridge makes odd popping noises during the night and the air conditioning unit wasn't particularly silent.

The lifts absolutely stank - I've taken to naming the lift on the right as the stinky lift as I take the stairs rather than ride in it.

There is little or no sound insulation between rooms or floors. If you stand in the corridor, you can hear the evening entertainment from their "sky bar" which is basically a substandard restaurant on the first floor that faces a run down and condemmed block opposite. So much for good views...

After much discussion with the receptionists I tried to get another room - the only one they made available stank of stale smoke, so badly that I couldn't even stand in it.

The hotel is in much need of decoration. Plus the breakfast isn't up to much. I cannot comment on the thai breakfast - I'm sure that's fine (rice, prawns and sliced cucumber. Not my cup of tea) but the 'American' breakfast had the Americans I met in stiches. It consists of two pieces of toast, a small glass of orange juice (if you're lucky) as much water as you can drink, a cup of coffee or something that might be tea but tastes similar to coffee, one very dry and overcooked slice of streaky bacon, two cremated eggs, a small slice of ham and a hotdog sliced at the ends. The meal seems to be served luke warm and barely fills a quarter of the plate.

Other guests describe it as (I quote) "a big dissapointment", "shabby", "not what I expected" and "Is the real meal going to come along soon?".

All in all, it's a bed for the night. As long as you have ear plugs and are jetlagged to hell you probably won't mind or care. The staff are kind, but none of the service staff talk a word of English.

I don't really recommend it - there's far better for far cheaper if you're willing to sacrifice the bath and shower (two guys I met on the train found a more central hotel without shower/bath for around 4 GBP a night, it was cleaner but smaller.
