The Hotel De Moc is in a great location. Only a 10 minute stroll from the up and coming Samsen area which has many good restaurants and bars, and a furher 5 minute stroll from Khaosan Road. We have stayed in several hotels in the Banglamphu and Sukhumvit areas over the last 12 years, and have also checked out many more, but we have yet to find a similarlly priced hotel of this standard with such a big pool in a lovely ground floor garden setting, AND in the sun all day.
We had some issues with the pool on two occasions, but the Guest Services Manager was very helpful, and did his best to sort it out. However, for some reason the water level was always much lower than it should have been, so the water wasn't spilling into the overflow. If this was amended, it would go a long way to boost the filtering system and also make it easier to exit the pool as the bottom steps of the ladder were quite high up..
We stayed at this hotel four times in four months for a duration of 5 days each time. There are two free Tuk Tuks to and from Khaosan Road, which takes about 5 minutes. But even though we left the hotel at least twice a day and walked in the general direction of Khaosan road, we were never lucky enough to get a free ride, and were told each time we asked, that the Tuk would be at least another 15 minutes. It was therefore quicker to walk.
The rooms are pleasant,, fairly spacious, and VERY clean. The beds are good quality and comfortable, and we loved the towel origami - elephants, dogs and swans! The bathroom was adequate, but if you have dodgy knees or hips, it's a bit tricky getting out of the shower which is over the bath . Decent size balcony with comfortable chairs. We stayed in a superior room on the first occasion, and a standard room on the other three, but couldn't honestly see the difference except that the superior rooms which are higher up have better city views.
The staff were very polite, but the door staff and room maids were particularly friendly and helpful.
We are unable to comment about the spa as we didn't use it, except to say that the setting looked great. And neither can we comment on the breakfast as we don't eat breakfast.
Friends of ours stayed at Hotel De Moc following our recommendation, and were more than happy with the whole experience.
We were unable to submit this review without star rating the Spa and breakfast , so these ratings are based on our friends experiences.
