A very quite and good to relax, enjoy without any hassle...you can sleep without any interruptions. Staff are friendly, too. Spacious room and simple facilities...all made to simply and easy access to any area you want to explore...there has a smoke area of the room for smokers. And no add ons charges. No deposit upon check-in and no charges for Luggage deposit.

Room Tip: any rooms are okay coz its a quite place the whole area....

Located near Pratunam area - the place for buying cheap wholesale fashion items. The hotel is just 5-10 minutes walking to Pratunam market. It is not so easy to find if you're not familiar with the area, as the streets are tiny. Be sure to bring a map, hotel tel, etc along so that the taxi can locate the hotel easier. The hotel reception speaks minimal English, but adequate enough for basic communication. Buffet freakfast is provided free, and of reasonable quality. Room looks nicer on photo than actual. Internet is not free and expensive (Note: wifi is not available, so it is a problem if you have laptop and mobile that is needing internet connection). There are other better choices near the vicinity.

The room was big enough. The breakfast was good enough. The location was okay, since it was at the center of everything. However, it was hard to find. It's inside the side streets. Its around 10 minutes walk to the different malls. The bathroom was okay also. The staff were helpful.

Good Budget Hotel with decent clean rooms with comfortable beds. Modest breakfast spread and the menu is changed over days so adds variety if you are staying for some days. Close to the shopping district- walking distance from Prathunam, Panthip Plaza, Platinum Mall, Siam Ocean World, Bayoke Tower and central world. Has facilities for safe keeping of passport etc at reception at no extra cost. Expect no views but for the price you pay, it is a fairly decent place to stay.
Remember to take a printout with the hotel details /location from their website in Thai to show to the cab driver as it is in a side street and there are more than one Watergate Hotels in the area.
The staff does not understand english well and gets frustrated quickly despite their inadequacy. Younger the staff you are dealing with more are the chances that they would not cooperate. The Restraunt shuts down at 8pm (and offers little choice.anyways) wont get any thing- tea, coffee after 8 pm. However several cafes, eating joints are present along the street or on the main road nearby.

Room Tip: Rooms very varied in size, so check out the options at arrival.

Value for money located in the shopping center of Bangkok.

Fixtures and air conditioning needs servicing.

Staff was robotic in servicing and welcoming us.

Room is reasonably clean. TV channels did not have good reception.

Breakfast buffet is generous in choice and refills.

stayed there for four nights in January 2012.very good location. pantip ,platinum, MBK ,siam all are in walking distance.

good - the location
clean / big rooms

Bad - No windows (not even in mini suits)
Rude reception
Same breakfast everyday
Twin beds (even if you asked for a double bed)

But again the location is great .......... !!!!!!!! I personally don't like the rooms without windows.
