I stayed here with my girlfriend on the first night of our 4 week trip in Thailand. It was clean, it had air conditioning and it definitely did the job we needed it for... A place to sleep. It had no frills, pool, breakfast or extras but as far as a place to rest your head after a long flight it was great. Only thing we didn't like was the location. It was on a busy road without much around. Could walk to khao San road in less than 10 minutes but there are places closer by if you can get deals on them.

We have stayed here twice now but only because of its location and cost. The hotel is clean and the staff are polite but it has something missing!

Last time we booked we had a hotel voucher that clearly stated that breakfast WAS included, however NO amount of reasonbale talking was going to change the Swana's mind all they kept saying was "Its a mistake NO Breakfast" so NO breakfast was had!!!!

Would we stay again, probably not but only because there are so many others to choose fro

We had no expectations, but the Swana had good reviews, so weren't too worried. We wanted to be near Koh San Road for our first time in Bangkok. It was about 15 to 20 minutes walk away, which was fine. The area didn't seem that nice, but its hard to know.. and there wasn't much around, but seemed very safe all the same. The staff were so friendly. The room was nice for the price, very clean and quiet except for a rooster on our last night, that was on the roof beside our window!!! The only bad thing is the shower isn't sealed so the water gets all over the bathroom floor.

Room Tip: We booked because it was high season. All the hotels we chose, were based on good reviews within our price range and trip advisor reviews were always reliable.

We stayed here on our way to and on our way back from Koh Lanta.
It was just want we wanted, a nice hotel at a reasonable price, friendly staff and to be able to sleep at night!
Go out the back entrance and explore the back streets and find your way to the local markets. Far more interesting than the increasingly westernised Khaosan road. We would definitely go back.

We stayed here for 2 nights, at an excellent rate of 850 baht/night. However, the cheap rate did not make up for the fact that the hotel is in a mad-traffic-soul-less-free-of-all-interesting-sights sort of place. If you are interested in Kaosan Road - a 15 minute walk will get you there. That's about the highlight, really ..... The rooms are very clean, only a few (8or so) channels on TV. One English (HBO). Food is average. They do not serve wine with the meal, but you can order beer. The Wi-Fi internet worked only one day while we were there. Service was attentive but usually ineffectual. When you order room service, be prepared to wait for a telephone call back to confirm whether they can serve your order. We wouldn't stay again, and cannot understand why anybody would stay here a second time, given the enormous choice in Bangkok, and such wonderful areas to explore/enjoy elsewhere?
