Urbana Langsuan
Ranked #255 of 1,389 Specialty Lodging in Bangkok
Reviewed June 7, 2014

We arrived with high expectations having stayed in three other 4* hotels in and around Bangkok. The standard of this hotel was below, rather than above, the standard of the other hotels.

Rooms - Bright, modern decor and was comfy clean etc.

Gym - equipment was ancient, looked like it should be in a museum rather than in an actual gym. It did the job but they should probably upgrade the equipment if they want to maintain their 5* rating.

Restaurant - modern/trendy atmopshere and nicely presented, but drinks were grossly overpriced and food was average. We had dinner there one night, I went for the pizza which was disappointing. Service wasn't overly friendly. Would have had a much better time going to one of the nearby restaurants. Breakfasts were good, again sticking with their modern/trendy style, they had interesting options like mini burgers in a chilli tomato sauce which were good.

Swimming pool - was OK, but not as nice as the pool at Chateau de Bangkok, where we had stayed previously.

Reception staff - were good and helpful with all our queries.

I'm just checking out as I write this. I stayed at the Urbana for four days and the experience helped me fall in love with Bangkok.

There is nothing negative I can say about the Urbana Langsuan.

Serviced apartments with amazing staff, excellent facilities, and luxurious pool.

I'll be back and I'll always stay at the Urbana Langsuan. Awesome!!

For five years I have been staying at this apartment hotel also when it was called Frasier. I have had studios, one bedrooms etc etc. Once I stayed for almost three months.
No more.
This time I made an online booking , paid in advance, and got a slightly better price than normal. The studio was the basic model - hot plates, microwave etc, but no cooking utensils or even waste food container. Nor had it dvd or sound system. When I queried they told me that they were not provided at my room rate. Two of the ceiling lights including one over the couch did not work. When I asked for new bulbs they did not appear. In the rather fabulous gym area most machines did not work or desperately needed maintenance. Jacuzzi permanently decked with paper out of order sign. I would have checked out but - I had paid in advance for three weeks!
Internet charge was exorbitant on a daily basis but I was able to pay for a month which was not too bad.
On the good side apartment was spotless, and staff were fine - they did loan me a dvd player. Back to Centre Point for my next trip.

Room Tip: If I had been warned that facilities were reduced and given an option to pay more I might have chose...

I stayed in Urbana Langsuan for 3 nights in April. I booked the two bedroom apartment. The rooms are comfortable. However I will not visit this hotel again.

Thai hospitality is not in this hotel at all. You just do not feel welcome and everything u asked for is with extra charges.. I'm a regular traveller to Bangkok and sad to say tht this hotel doesn't make my trip a happy one. The staff at the front desk is not cheerful and helpful at all.

Internet is with charges. I asked if they have wifi at the lobby, the receptionist just said NO! No shuttle or tuk tuk service provided. Walking to the bts station is about 15min walk. I don't find that place convenient at all.

Basic amenities like coffee, tea bag and sugar is not provided in the hotel too. I called to ask for coffee, their answer is tht u can order with charges. Pen and a few piece of papers are basic things, but they do not provide too.

Everything u ask for is all with charges and their service is really a disappointment to me and my family.

Thank you for choosing our hotel as place to stay in Bangkok. On the other hand, please accept our apologies for the disappointing incidents that you experienced.

Despite the fact that you enjoyed our rooms, it was saddening to hear that we weren’t able to give you the service that you expected.

We apologize for their unacceptable behavior and we do assure you that we’ll be giving proper measures to our staffs to prevent this from happening again. We apologize as well for the extra charges that you’ve mentioned. Coffee and tea are upon request with the housekeeping. Currently, we are doing room improvements for the convenience of all the guests, including the placement of in-room amenities.

Please accept our apologies if we made your stay a disappointment. We hope that you can give us another chance in the future and we’ll be more than glad to give you a better service.

On the upside, the hotel is located in a good area, it is relatively comfortable, relatively clean, and the breakfast is very good.
On the downside...
We are a family of five, including a 5-month-old baby and two older kids. We stayed at the Urbana Langsuan for three nights at the end of our Thailand trip. As of our arrival till the end of our stay we never once felt the well-known "Thai hospitality" which we enjoyed in all the other places we stayed in during our trip. The receptionists at the front desk went out of their way to refuse any and all our requests, to charge exorbitant amounts of money for every little thing, and in general to make us feel unwelcome.
The room contains no welcoming information except for a laminated page listing ALL contents of the room, and the price we would pay for breaking or damaging each one...
When we asked for late check-out so as not to run around with the baby till our flight, we were told there is no room available (even though we knew there was), and then asked for double the amount we paid for 3 nights, for a 5 hour stay...
Naturally we declined.
We would not recommend this hotel for families, and will not try it again.
