“Good Location and Good Price. 1 Not so good point.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

Stayed in this Hotel for 3 Nights (29th December - 1st Jan)
Good Spacious room which was cleaned every day of our stay.
Good location as we were here to do the normal tourist stuff (Grand Palace/ Reclining Budha & Golden Mount). Walked to Grand Palace which took 30-40 minutes but it was good to see Bangkok people going about there normal day to day business.
The staff were very welcoming and helpful and the free safe deposit box was a very good extra.

Your probably wondering why I haven't given it 5 out of 5 as its not a bad review so far.

For the Not so good point :-

We had a Balcony but there was a brick wall about 2 inch away from it so couldn't really sit out and watch Bangkok go by.

But all in all a good value for money hotel.

Dear Shane W,

Thank you for choosing to stay at our hotel and for taking the time to write an online Trip Advisor review.

Everyone here is pleased to read you enjoyed your recent stay and were happy with all the different facilities we offer here.

We understand your concern about the view from your room and hope this did detract away from a pleasant visit to Bangkok.

As you mention in your review the Hotel De Moc is situated only 10 minutes away from the bustling street market, Khaosan Road. Our location is also near many beautiful temples and buildings which make up Bangkok’s picturesque ‘Old Town’.

We hope you will choose to return and stay with us again in the future.

Kind Regards

John Pettengell

We stayed for one night in Hotel De Moc and were very happy with our stay. The room was clean and comfortable. We ate in the garden restaurant which was very pleasant. The swimming pool although a bit cold at the time was clean and refreshing. The staff were attentive and helpful. Although the hotel could be described as dated, they have made the most of this with their retro theme. By keeping the hotel in good condition we were as happy as we would have been in a brand new hotel.

As others have said, this is a decent hotel and good value. The location is not bad with khao san road within walking distance. The room was pretty nice with a balcony overlooking the city. The only thing I disliked was the (locked) connecting door to another room due to which you could hear every sound from the next room. Some better soundproofing is recommended.

We chose this hotel because of its great reviews and price (approximately $30 usd per night). It's very clean and definitely a great deal! However, as others have mentioned, location is slightly inconvenient and you'll pay money for transportation - luckily tuk tuks are very cheap but you have to haggle.

Myself and my partner had our first stay in Bangkok at the Hotel De Moc back in November 2013. This is one of those situations I would say you get what you paid for. The hotel exterior is great, they have a pretty good pool and bar. They also have a spa which looked as if it was pretty good value.
The room itself was alright, I think we may have been put in one of the less expensive rooms as some of the other rooms looked much nicer. We had a view of a vacant lot..... The room had everything we needed; air conditioning was good, but took a few minutes to get up and running. There's a bar fridge with some snacks in it, just make sure you don't turn it off as the switch is next to the lights.
Location is pretty good if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of everything, but close enough to walk. Khao San Road is about 10-15 minute walk, which is full of shops and bars. The road parallel to Khao San has some amazing restaurants and bars also, and is so worth going too. The hotel has a free Tuk Tuk to Khaosan. The Grand Palace is also pretty close, about 30 minutes walk, or a cheap taxi ride.
The staff were really friendly and helpful, the hotel felt pretty secure, which is what you want on your first stay in Bangkok. They also have a lock box by reception.
Overall we would recommend staying here if your wanting a cheap stay, close enough to everything you need.

Room Tip: Ask for a room which looks out to the front, otherwise you may be stuck with a vacant lot like us!

We didn't choose to book this hotel as it was part of our tour booking, but it was good considering. The room was basic and could do with a renovation and update (there were cables sticking out of the wall beside my bed). But, the staff were really friendly and helpful which made up for it. The breakfast was good and had lots on offer, including pancakes, french toast, waffles, bacon, eggs, and Thai breakfast, etc. It also had a decent sized pool which was hardly used when we were there (as well as massage, therapies beside the pool).

This was our first stop in Thailand so it took some time trying to get our bearings as well as get used to the traffic and the smells, but seemed to be a decent location and within walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants.The reception provided us with a map and showed us how to locate Khao San Road (10-15 minute walk away).

I'd recommend this hotel as a cheaper option. I'm not sure if I would have picked to stay here had we not been on the tour but it did the job.

This hotel was definately the best choice during our trip. Low price with very good facilities and environment. The room was clean and quiet, staff hospitality, entire hotel decoration looks very delicate. 20 minutes to get the Khao San Road. Strongly recommend this hotel if you visit Khao San Road while you don't want to be interrupted by the noise.

Room Tip: Ask for hotel map before you get there. The taxi drivers in Bankok didn't know the address, even...
