Arriving at the Shanti Lodge after a long flight was great. It literally looks like a tropical jungle placed in the middle of Bangkok. Slip your shoes off and head on in. The reception closes at 9 but the gentlemen at the bar was happy to check us in after hours. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were great. Hand woven bamboo walls gave the place a warm traditional feeling. I really felt at home here. I can't believe the poor reviews this place received. When making a reservation online it reminds you to call and pay for your room before arriving. I'm assuming this gentlemen below me ignored that and just showed up. Yes the staff take a brake at the same time and enjoy a meal together.. Didn't hurt me to wait 5 minutes to order another beer while they finished there meal. If you are an uptight person looking to complain on your holidays about everything. This is not the place for you! Stay at a 5 star hotel where the staff are paid to pretend they care what you have to say. If you are a laid back traveler looking to mingle with the locals and have a good time, then this place is for you. Do not let the reviews discourage you, this place is amazing!!
