“Great hideaway”
Reviewed May 31, 2009

This is a really nice basic hotel hidden away on a side street in a good section of Bangkok. It is right next door to The Westin and Robinson's dept store. It is very reasonably priced, has nice rooms, and great restaurant. We stayed here in Apr and then again in May and were very pleased.

My family stayed at Grottino for 2 nights. The hotel was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint. The rooms are nice and clean and most of all great customer service. Overall I'll stay here again for sure.

The Grottino is a great place to stay. The rooms are very comfortable and functional. There is no swimming pool and not much to see in the lobby, but you only need to stay in the room. I like this place because it is a good price (1950 baht or about $60 USD), with no hidden charges and a good room experience.

The rooms are quiet, the "curtains" are actually sliding doors that keep the sun out in the morning and the mini bar prices are reasonable.

The location is why I truly prefer this hotel. It is next to the Westin Grande Sukhuvit, but just 50 yards down a quiet road. At the entrance of the road are street food vendors and a 24 hour mart like 7-11.

The hotel is a 2 minute walk to both the skytrain and the underground so all of Bangkok (without the traffic) is at your fingertips. It has all of the touristy daytime and nighttime stuff nearby, whether you are looking to souvenir shop in the daytime along Sukhumvit or go to a wide range of restaurants and bars at night.

==== Booking
I send an email to book for no smoking room at a high level.
My booking was confirmed by email.
No initial deposit nor Credit Card number were required.
The rate is 1950 BHT per night.

==== Location
Grottino is a storey hotel located in a small street adjacent to Sukhumvit Soi 19.
Although next Sukhumvit, the hotel is in a quiet street: no noise coming from traffic or bars.
Its location is excellent: less than 5min walk to both BTS (Asok station) and MRT (Sukhmvit station).
Any sightseeing sites or shopping malls near BTS or MRT are therefore easily reachable.

For nightlife, Soi cowboy is at walking distance (5min walk); Nana Entertainment Plaza is one BTS station away.

There is a Family Mart next the hotel on Soi 19, if you need drinks or foods.

==== Room
I spent 5 nights in room #54. Although the hotel is not a new one, it is clean and well maintained.
The room is very clean, well decorated and large enough for 2 persons.
The floor is a wooden-floor.
The room comes with
- in-room safe
- free internet (network cable provided)
- fully supplied mini-bar
- tv with international channels
- dvd reader (dvd are available free of charge at the reception desk, but never used it - so don't know what is available)
- a sofa and a low table
- a desk table.
The bed is comfortable.

The bathroom is very well maintained and spotless.
There is a large shower cabin and a hairdryer.

The room is very comfortable and very quiet due to the hotel location. The only noise I heard was coming from rooms next to mine.
Every evening my room was prepared by the staff for the night:
- window shields were closed
- a "good night" chocolate was left on the bed
- the bed was prepared for the night

==== Staff
Staff are courteous and discret. They do well their job.

==== Safety
Safety is good.
No problem during day time.
On evening a security guard is at the entrance.
Even at night the small street is safe, mostly restaurants and hotels stand in this street.

==== Bottomlines
Grottino is a very good hotel in a very good location. It worth the money.
It suits well for singles or couples but not for a family: it lacks amenities.
The only issue for me is it has no swimming pool.
The hotel is guest friendly.
