“Nice Budget Hotel”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

I stayed in this hotel from late January 2013 to mid February 2013, and no real complaints, thought it was nice and handy to the entertainment areas and good public transport in the sky train basically at the door.
Would have been nice if there was Coffee making facilities..but no real complaints about that..as it is a budget hotel....the only small complaint...which was rectified straight away anyway was that I was charged with using the mini bar....but as soon as I said I didn't use it..it was removed...so all good.
The only staff I really dealt with were the receptionists, and they were friendly and helpful and had a basic knowledge of English
The rooms were always cleaned each day and bottled water was replaced daily to...so all in all a nice little budget hotel.

This hotel is a sort of bargain. It's very close ( beneath) the Nana BTS station. You have several restaurants, hotels, food stalls near the hotel. So as far as the location is concerned it's a good choice. However, the rooms are very small with small windows and hardly any natural light passes through. The room tariff is a sort of balance for the small rooms but good location. The breakfast is arranged with an adjoining pub and is acceptable. So if you don't mind the small rooms, I think it would be a reasonable choice. The rooms are neat and tidy though. And yes, if you request the hotel for an early check-in or late check out their answer would be that they are fully booked. But offer to pay them for half the room rent and voila !!! the rooms are immediately available. So don't expect any out of the way help from the staff. Please be careful before you pick up that bottle of water or local map or any other thing from the hotel room for your personal use. Most of the items are on a charge (exorbitant) basis and they have little price stickers which you could easily overlook.

Thank you for your review. We were happy to read that you found the City Lodge Soi 9 to be convenient. I was however sorry if you were not comfortable with the way we communicated our late check-out charge to you and shall review this. Due to the high level of demand of the hotel and the per night pricing however late check-out charges indeed do apply. In regards to bottled mineral water and chargeable kios items like maps, this is in line with other hotels. Again we are able to keep the room rate low by providing such optional items in the rooms with additional charge. Yours sincerely.

The hotel is good if you're going to spend most of your time outside the hotel, need awesome access to MRT, and can't afford to spend money.

I went here since I need to do some business in Bangkok

I didn't know how things will turn out, so I decide to keep a tight lid on cost.

This hotel definitely good value for location if you're on a budget.

It's very near an MRT (2-3 minutes walk).

Although the service is good (front desk is fast and friendly) but in term of room quality, the budget experience is intense.

The room is small, cramp, ill equipped (old TV), and smelly.

I brought my own sheet to anticipate the budget experience, and I was glad I did.

Breakfast exist but bare.

My room felt so cramp I cannot wait to leave it and just walk around Bangkok.

Understand the benefits but be ready to accept the negatives

City Lodge is right on Nana BTS station, which was literally 5 meters from my window! That makes it very easy to move around using the train, while on the same time it's not an issue when it comes to noise (I was a bit worried about that after reading some reviews here..). Of course it's also very easy to walk around as well, since you're in the middle of Nana-Sukhumvit area. The room is small but clean, good wi-fi, safe and a bathroom that comes with a bathtub. The staff was ok with me during my 2 days stay, smily and helpful. No facilities other than a reception but there is free breakfast (eggs and sausage) served at "The Game", the bar next door. All the above combined with the really good price, make this hotel a good choice for a short stay downtown Bangkok.

Very handy but be warned, it has a very small entrance and you can easily miss it altogether. Staff pleasant and efficient and rooms very clean and well maintained. Privately owned but managed by amari hotels so that gives you an idea of the standard. Our room, window latch broken but otherwise very nice and pleasant. Pity no balcony or pool but is only about a 30 room hotel. Only stayed one night but what a joy after the helhole we were in around the corner in soi 7 the previous night. You can find cheaper but doubt you would get the and all the chaos. Same standard.
Very handy as you literally step out the front door onto Bangkoks main road. Would definitely stay here again as for the price you will be hard pressed to find better in Bangkok
Tip: get a room at the back as front quiet noisy

Room Tip: stay at the back and high up. front very noisy

We stayed here for 4 nights and got a free upgrade to the superior room. Hotel is literally steps away from the Nana BTS station. In the day time the streets are peaceful but come night fall, the area is transformed as street vendors setup their carts and there are many pubs around. Place becomes rather seedy so beware of this. Rooms are clean but have only basic ammenties. Hair dryer only available through request. No electric kettle facility. Hope the management can improve on this. Wifi in room is very stable- good plus point.
