“Average room, OK for one night stop over”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

Good:
10 mins to airport and free shuttle bus
Clean room, air-conditioning
Free wireless internet

Bad:
Really dated
Only one power point hidden behind the fridge makes charging devices really difficult

The big plus is the proximity from the airport and more if it happens to be in the middle of night, there is complimentary pick up from the airport lobby. Staff is very friendly but once you check in the room, you can find big mosquitos waiting for your reception. Hotel staff tried their best to fly away the mosquitos; but some left over mosquitos did not cause very much inconvenience as we were very much tired and had a deep sleep overnight. With this price however, this hotel is very much convenient if you have to catch next day flight and need only a night stopover. Vegetarian food was limited to breads, butter and jams. Area and surroundings were reasonably clean.

Room Tip: Choose this hotel if you are looking for stopover stay near the airport and do not expect anything e...

Stayed here at the end of our trip for two nights since it was by the airport. Not a great place to stay but certainly gets the job done.

Then as the sun set, bugs.... Everywhere. We had the door closed, windows shut and locked but they were crawling through from under the walls, door, and windows. I've been in Southeast Asia for a while, I'm used to bugs and if they stay in the floor, no problem. But they were all in our beds and the window curtains were even crawling with them. When we went to the desk, the lady told us it was our fault because we must have left the for open, lights on, and windows open. All false. When she finally sent up a guy to check it out, his face told us what we needed to know despite his not speaking English. Their means of solving the problem wasn't switching rooms but sweeping up all the dead ones and spraying the entire room with RAID and telling us to wait an hour. When they still showed up in our bed we moved out to a hotel a five minute walk down and had a lovely stay.

Avoid.

Absolutely perfect,simple. Highly recommend for overnight layover! Booked online the day before. We arrived at 2am. Went to airport exit #4 as explained on the site. Found the hotels greeting person and was immediately told it would be 10 min until the free transfer. Like clock work she came and found us, directed us to the mini bus and 15 min later we were in our room asleep. As a very experienced Thailand travelers, the whole process exceeded our expectations. No stickers..No unknown transfers...just simple and easy exactly what you need after 23 hours in transit. Will be staying here again.

This is ideal for a short stay near the airport.
It is not ideal if planning on staying for a long period.
We stayed overnight because our flight was early the following morning. We arrived at around 16:00 but there was nothing to explore surrounding the hotel, we walked around in hope of finding a restaurant but we could not find any where. The area seemed to be for local people.
The room was very basic but fine for what we wanted and reasonably priced. The shower was warm, the room was spacious and there was no wifi.

Stopped here before our flight home back to the UK. Flew in to Bangkok from Phucket, and rather than trying to search out the shuttle bus, got a taxi. Took about 15 minutes, as had to travel past the turn off and do a U-Turn and come back the other way to access the turn off. Cost around 200baht (£2).

Arrived around 10pm, staff were friendly, and one chap took our cases up in the lift to top floor for us. Same chap was serving in the bar too. Check in was quick, and the shuttle service to the airport was explained to us. This service is free!

Had a few drinks in the bar, sitting outside and enjoyed our last night of warm, sultry weather. Too late to get food as stopped serving at 10, but Tesco Extra just 5 minute walk away to get some snacks to keep us going.

Rooms were basic, but clean. Had a view of the airport and could see planes taking off, but airport noise was minimal, despite being a stone throw away. Only problem with room was that the bathroom flooded when the shower was used. Seems the drain had been filled in, with just a tiny hole for the water to drain in to.

Perfectly adequate for one night stop over, would use again without issue.

This place was great value for what you get. More than adequate rooms and facilities. They produced some really nice food in the restaurant and offer a well practised shuttle run to BKK airport. I'm staying again when I come back to Bangkok in Jan.
