“Cheap and good”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

For S$74 a room of twin sharing is great value for money. Room is clean and good size. The rate we paid also include reasonable breakfast. As we stayed for 4 nights, the breakfast buffet served the same menu everyday but overall bearable. The only set back will be the aircon of the rooms, the setting doesnt work and 2 of our rooms are freezing whereas the other rooms aircon giving us whole nite of rattling and squeaking noise.

The location is fantastic although it is hidden in a small streets filled with fashion shops. In fact nobody can see the entrance when we turn into this short street. It is situated right in Pratunam and the shopping at the shops located behind the hotel will keep you occupy for 1 day. Bear in mind shops in Pratunam open as early as 8am and closes at 4pm. When you walk to the main road which is about 3 min from the hotel, you will see Platinum Fashion Wholesale Mall opposite. In comparison, shopping in Pratunam streets and Chatuchak is still a lot cheaper then Platinum Mall. However, BTS(Skytrain) is quite far from the hotel so take taxi if you need to but avoid peak hours. From hotel to MBK onli caused 50baht by meter. Usually taxi will ask for a flat rate of 100 baht in d day and 200baht in the night, so up to u to bargain.

The only good thing is it's location if you are on a shopping spree. Though there is free internet, sending out emails took ages to go through. The toilet smells of dead rat in the first room (Rm 604) that was allotted to me and the marble flooring leading to the toilet is sticky and dirty. The bathroom gets flooded within 2 mins into my shower and nearly flooded the whole toilet. There was only one big towel in the room meant for 2 person, nothing more, nothing less and there is practically no hot water all the time as the water heaters are not electrical heaters, but gas heaters I believe. In the wee hours of the morning, loud sounds from machines (like generators working) makes you awake and wondering whether the sky is going to fall on you. When I asked for a change of room on my second day there, the Management kindly allowed the change and noted my concerns in Rm 604. The second room (Rm 607) allotted to me was much better though the issue of not having constant hot water for shower is still there. I love to visit Bangkok now and then, but will never stay again in this hotel, the hotel is such a disappointment, not worth for the rate paid, nearly 2000 bhat for a night.

Room Tip: Avoid rm 604, its a dampener to your holiday.

If you are looking for location, this hotel is right at the center of busy Pratunam. It was not easy to find at first since it is located at one small corner and surrounded by all the clothing wholesaler. But if you are into shopping, this place is just 5 minutes walking from Platinum Fashion mall.

The staff were nice and friendly but the room is a bit disappointing. It is big, but it looks a bit old and has a weird smell inside. The lights is also very dim and it is difficult for me to work with that kind of light. The wi fi is not as fast as well (or maybe I am just pampered by Singapore fast internet connection).

All and all, location is good, but if I can choose, there are other nicer hotels around the area with around the same price.

Every time i went to BKK, i always choose this hotel, because you dont need to go far shopping, cheap & expensive malls are just walking distance, the staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and 24hrs wifi free, near for everything u need.

The hotel room is very clean and the service is good. It is very near to Platinum Fashion Mall and other shopping centers. However, the hotel might not be easy to find, as the hotel is situated inside a small shopping mall in a small alley. Our taxi driver had great difficulty finding this hotel.

Excellent service and amenities right in the heart of Bangkok. A few minutes away from the popular shopping malls, and literally two steps away from fashion shopping stalls. Don't be deceived by the entrance as these were rented out as shopping stalls but as soon as youve reached the reception/ lobby situated on the first floor, the oasis of calm begins. Full air-conditioning all throughout. The rooms are in an impeccable state and are almost sound-proofed, you wont feel you are in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city. Staff are great, accommodating and always ready to serve. Special mention to Sol, an English- speaking receptionist who will go to great lengths to accommodate your every whim. Airport transfers service is very useful. Good breakfast, too.

stayed here for 4 nights. right smack in Pratunam wholesale market. initially wanted something near to Platinum mall (which is 150 m away) but the wholesale market was much more cheaper. 7-11 is 30 m away. lots of street food. taxi n tut tut passes by frequently. Hotel seems very very new. It provides coffee/tea making facilities but does not provide the coffee/tea. Expect the same breakfast everyday. and also expect very soft pillows (not to my liking). Overall was a good stay if you are in Bangkok for a shopping trip and not expecting 5 star treatment.

Room Tip: choose a room with a view of the market.
