“Great Hotel Service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2006

The rooms may be just alright, but Tarntawan Place is a great hotel, primarily from its service. Its staff is very friendly. Since I had prebooked my room, as soon as I got in, they gave me printed calling cards with my name with the hotel location (which is right in the Silom/Surawong area). It has free internet service in the lobby. You can avail of its breakfast the whole day, so if you are on a budget you can have it for lunch or dinner. There is no problem in bringing in guests to the room. They just have to register with the security guard by the elevator, and the lobby calls in once they leave to make sure you are alright.

Once I complained since there was a construction which started early in the morning and disturbed my sleep. I found out it was coming from their neighbor. But still they were apologetic, and gave me a coupon for a free night's stay the next time. For my next trip, I wanted to claim the coupon, but they were fully booked. The hotel went out of its way to book me in another hotel, in a suite! And that was even though I only had a regular room during my previous stay.

I tried other hotels during other stays in Bangkok, but none has come close to the service that Tarntawan Place had provided me. Keep it up!

Had a great stay at the Tarntawan Place.

The staff are fantastic, friendly and really helpful. The rooms are large, clean and the bed was huge! We had breakfast in the room every morning and it was really good ( choice of fried rice or noodle soup also western choice ), room service and the mini bar were both very good value.

Good location, had no problems getting to any point in the city. Only a 5 min walk to sky train ( BTS ), lots of taxi and tuk - tuks.

Had a great time at this hotel - highly recommended!.

One down side - Don't use the tour company that has a office in the hotel lobby. Overpriced and really bad service. I thought it was owned by the hotel but it is not. Ask at the hotel reception for tours they offer, much cheaper and alot better quality.

I recently had my second visit to the Tarntawan Place Hotel and can recommend this hotel to other visitors to Bangkok.

I have enjoyed staying in bother a suite and standard room. The rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated with everything you would expect from a good hotel. The staff are very couteous and helpful and the location is excellent.

My only criticism is that the breakfasts could be improved but apart from that the hotel is very good and offer excellent value.

Location was very handy being so close to the stytrain, about 5 mins walk. And if you like Patpong it practically on the doorstep, 2 mins walk.
The hotel was clean and staff very friendly, good value for money considering the rates per night. There was a problem with ants in the room and the building site behind the hotel which seemed to only work in the eveing or morning due to the heat, which at times was quite noisy.
One word of warning this hotel caters for the gay community and if you're not ok with that I'd recommend you stay well away. Plus, we stayed here 5 nights and did not see one female guest, other than my Wife.
Also, if you are staying with a partner you may be questioned by the hotel security before entering the hotel lift on an evening, which can be uncomfortable if for instance it's your Wife with you.
Other than that I see no potential problems for anyone staying here.

Initially, I was uneasy about staying at the Tarntawan Place Hotel; I always had stayed at deluxe hotels in Bangkok, like the Oriental. I was booked at the Tarntawan because it was part of a package.

Yet, as it turned out, I was marvelously surprised and pleased. It is a very comfortable and reasonably priced hotel, with extremely friendly service in a great location. To be sure, it is very near the Patpong sex scene and is an explicitly gay-friendly hotel.

If that will bother you, then this is not the place for you. If you're OK with that -- or even desire that -- then Tarntawan offers nice-size and cpmfortable rooms with good lighting, updated baths, good air-conditioning, 24-hour restaurant and room service, efficient airport pickups, adept help at arranging tours and guides and very good security (for those wanting to bring "guests" up to their rooms).

All of this comes at a very reasonable price. I thus enthusiastically recommend the Tarntawan.

Spent 10 days at the Tarntawan over the holidays in December and found it a rewarding experience and excellent value. The staff is virtually the same from year to year and they are exceptional. Service is a primary focus of this hotel and they succeed. Rooms are not huge, but adequate and newly remodelled and are attractive and functional with plenty of hot water. Security is strong, the restaurant does a fine job, and the included breakfast is terrific whether one gets the western or Thai breakfast.
The hotel is set off the stree just enough so one doesn't get street noise, etc. However, it is in a wonderful location with so much, including sky train, within walking distance. Free internet use if staying at hotel. Around $56 anight for double with breakfast for two. I have stayed at the Tarntawan at least five times.
