A travel agency in a luxury resort of Pattaya suggested us this hotel. At $14, we were surprised by the price and doubt about the quality. The woman, who also booked us pleasant day trips in Pattaya, assured us that it was clean and said it was okay just to spend one night. Since we have never been in Bangkok before, we didn’t know the market price. And since the travel agency was inside a very fine resort, we trusted her.
The hotel is conveniently located in downtown near a major street and few meters from the BTS sky train. The hotel is quite big and look fine from the outside. The lobby was acceptable although quite dark. After checking-in, a staff brought us to the room. It was old, horribly dirty and smelled tobacco. So we called the reception (with the dirty phone) and asked for a non-smoking room. We were transferred to another room that was at least as dirty.
We immediately went outside and walked until we were exhausted because we didn’t want to return to the hotel. Spending a night in there was worst than a nightmare. At least in a nightmare, it is all over when you wake up.
The next morning, I was ready to take my stuff and ran away as fast as possible. But my wife wanted to try the complementary breakfast. She ate few spoons; I didn’t dare to touch anything.
We were alone in this hotel. The corridors were dark, probably to save electricity. The staff was nice, but there was nothing they could do in such a horrible place. There was a big swimming pool, but based on the rest of the hotel, only the bravest would dare to try it.
Unless you are on an extremely tight budget, don’t get even close to this hotel. It may have been a good hotel 50 years ago, but believe me it is not the case anymore.
