“Middle of nowhere”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2010

Rooms are spacious and clean. However, located in the middle of nowhere I certainly won't recommend this hotel - especially to tourists. Taxidrivers have no idea where the hotel is and cannot even find the street. Public transport too far to walk.

The Howard Square Hotel is a small Hotel which is located in some suburb of Bangkok. The only bad thing about it was its distance from everything. Its in a very isolated spot which is far from the city center. The lobby is Ok but the rooms are great. The food is not all that bad. I actually enjoyed my stay here in-spite of the distance. i recommend it if you want to save on some cash and don't mind a 20min drive to get to where the action is.

Howard Square ambience and reception desk was quite a welcome to Thailand. The lobby is not relatively big, but very well decorated - Rooms are comfortable, as well as the breakfast options on the 8th floor are quite an appetite.
The hotel is not so close to the tourist attractions, so you need to rent a cab to get to the nearest shopping centres, Pat Pong - overall, even though the hotel is not very conventiently located, the service and the quality of the hotel, may just change your mind.

On a recent trip to Bangkok,we stayed in Howard square.Though I agree that the hotel is little far off from Pratunam/MBK/Suan Lum etc however finding a taxi is never a problem.
Taxi to MBK would cost you around 100 THB during the day and around 150 THB during the night.From Suan lum night bazaar a taxi would be easily available for 100 THB.I would suggest all to carry the hotel card with you for giving out directions to the cab drivers as language is a big problem with them.You might also tell them that this hotel is near the surasak station on the main road.The hotel is spotlessly clean and serves nice breakfast at the 8th floor.The staff at the reception understands english and is keen to provide you best of the services...Even at 4am they packed a nice breakfast for us as we had an early flight to phuket.

This is hotel is good in cleanliness and rooms are a great treat. worth for our money. But the only demerit of this hotel is the location. This hotel is located on the outskirts of Bangkok and far away from famous shopping areas like Chattuchak(weekend)market, MBK mall and Indira market areas. Difficult to reach from the main city of Bangkok since many taxi fellows wont come to this hotel location during night.

  • Liked — cleanliness and comfort
  • Disliked — location is very far away from city

This hotel review is from the perspective of A Indian national who is well travelled.I guess the general level of expectancy from a hotel and it's services for Indian's differ than from people of other nationalities though the basics remain the same.We Stayed at this hotel during our self planned trip to the far east and this hotel turned out to be a nice surprise though a little away from the city centre but taxi in bangkok is very affordable to get to the major shopping areas does not cost more then USD 3-4. On check in they upgraded us to a junior suite as we were three people sharing the room. Other places they use to put an extra bed besides the regular bed. But this room had a permanent extra bed which was a nice touch. The suite was very spacious with simple and nice interiors. Bathroom was immaculate and linen was spotless clean. Breakfast was the highlight of the stay served in the restaurant at the top level it was very good variety and tasty, the view of the city from the breakfast area is also very nice. There are cabs available right outside all through the day. We ordered dinner (local food) once at the hotel and it was delicious. The hotel gets a lot of japanese guest so they serve japanese cuisine too. One thing I did not like is the absence of tea/coffee maker in the room. But they hotel very proudly advertises its "Special Indian Tea" which was a great stress buster once you return after a whole day of crazy shopping. The staff is very friendly and courteous though English language can be little problem but they manage it. They have some Hindi speaking staff too. The hotel also offers free wifi I was carrying my laptop and used it the speed was very good. The hotel is not very big so there's no too much crowd and the service is good. We had a good stay at this hotel and I'm sure anyone else planning to stay here, Also will.

I found this hotel on the net and was puzzled at the very reasonable rates, so we booked 4 nites there, and were upgraded to a suite room on the 8th floor. The room was huge with lounge, and separate bedroom area, AC, cable TV and private bathroom. The hotel itself is well maintained and restaurant is pleasant enough.
The main and really only issue with the hotel is the location, it is nowhere near anything, and about 15 minutes by cab to Silom Rd, or 5-10 minutes drive to the nearest BTS Skytrain Surasek, 35 minutes if you feel like walking!
Overall nice hotel, but location makes it a pass for me, especially when I was unable to find any cab driver who knew where the hotel is, so calling the hotel to get them to explain the location to the driver is not part of a good hotel choice for me. The map provided by the hotel didn't always assist with drivers & many didn't want to drive there as it's out of the way.
