We enjoyed our recent 5 nights stay in Tarntawan Place. The rooms are spacious and clean and because of the hotel's location away from the street, it is quiet. Plenty of restaurants, eating places, street food stalls around and it is easily reached via skytrain with Sala Daeng the closest stop, about a 10 minutes walk. Plenty of entertainment close by,including the go go bars of boys' alley. Nice breakfast daily included and wifi works well. Would definitely be back.

Great location near to the sky train and in walking distance of lots to do and some excellent street food. There is a brilliant tailors nearby - turn left out of the hotel and Hilton Tailors is about 50m down the street.
The staff in tarntawan were all extremely pleasant and helpful and always greeted you with a smile.
The rooms have large comfortable beds and room service was good and very reasonably priced.
I would certainly stay there again.

Dear Mr. Higgins,

Thank you very much for your review. I hope you had a safe trip home.

We did shampoo all the carpets on the 8th floor the day after your departure. I have told our housekeeper to be more pro-active and not wait for guest comments regarding cleanliness.

We at the Tarntawan Place all look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future.

Yours

Lukas

First and foremost, for those with a problem with it, it is a gay-friendly hotel and the transit of foreigners and their 'boys' calls attention! Location is prime and one can't hear a pin drop, despite the noise of the Surawong Road as the sun sets. Sala Daeng station is less than 10 minutes away.
Check-in takes far too long, for receptionists fill out the card themselves, most of the times spelling something wrong. It was my second time there and I was aware of how breakfast works - it was never explained and it really should have been!
The room is large and well-equipped, internet is free and fast, the hotel does help a lot with excursions. My major complaint is price I find it absurdly expensive for what it offers: one can stay at much better hotels and getting much more in benefits for the same amount!

Room Tip: Pay a bit more and get the deluxe room!

Dear vitorbabrazil,

Thank you very much for taking your time to write your review of the Tarntawan Place. I am sorry that your check-in was not as smooth as you expected it. We do keep a record of the most important details of our visitors, so after the first visit it should really be a breeze.
I have spoken to the breakfast staff about explaining the details of breakfast to all guests. Sorry for that shortcoming.
The Tarntawan Place is not the cheapest place on Surawong Road, however, we do include many extras in the room rate (like breakfast, internet, etc) and offer 24 hrs. room service and 24 hrs. breakfast. Most our guests are return guests and you yourself have returned for a second visit. Thank you. I look forward to welcoming you back with us again in the not too distant future.
Yours
Lukas

Average accommodations but extra point for being LGBT friendly and decent location. The building, reception area and rooms are clean but a little tired. The breakfast was uninspired, although available any time of the day. The location is close to a night market and other night life in the nearby alleys off Silom and Surawong, if that is what you are into. Also just a few minutes walk to the SkyTrain station. The manager was friendly and helpful; the other staff less so mainly due to language barrier. Minimal amenities; WiFi was OK.

...just back from a total of 9 nights at the Tarntawan (3 x 3 nights as travelling. I always stay here (Surawong room upgrade worth it!) and in the havoc of Bangkok very quiet down a short soi but literally paces from Silom and all it offers
What I always like is the cleanliness (linen changed every day) , the amazing staff-they remembered me from previous visits - and the good value for money for where it is. If you want glitz and glamour then go elsewhere-but if you are after comfort, top good location, security, freedom and value for money look nowhere else. Talking to other guests they feel the same way-some there for weeks at a time.
Chatting to the general manager (who often has breakfast with everyone else and very approachable) added that like most hotels they have been affected by the recent troubles but the Tarntawan had faired a lot better as they have such a strong customer base....need I say more !!
Already working on my next visit

Room Tip: Surawong room worth the little upgrade
