Return to FX Makkasan

At the price we are paying we expect free breakfast, although it is only adequate fare being served. The water bar is gone (we had that before) and tooth paste and brush are no longer served and the hand towel was not given as well. Somehow it does not appear to look the same as the FX of old but the little changes was not a disappointment except that if corners are cut, prices should also come down to match the savings. We will still consider FX for further bookings because of the ease to get to the airport by express or city train.

It is very convention to take trains from the airport. Public buses and mini-vans run from the airport central bus station. A free shuttle from exit 10 will get you there. You can get a bus or mini-van to Victory Monument which is very centralised.

Too noise at night, you can't really sleep well!!

Most people chose this hotel is because the location close to both airport link station and MRT station, (actually still need to walk for a little while) however the hotel is just right in front of big road. and even in the 1am 2am 3am u can still hear noise by the cars something. of course no mention after 5am. so u never had a chance can sleep well. also the air conditioner is just face to the bed. so will feel cold and also noise at night. room is not covered with carpet or tiles. only one small bottle of shampoo and shower gel provided, not even enough for two people or more than two bath. so i will not stay in this hotel ever again.

good for overnight between the airports

This is a budget hotel convenient for those who arrive late from Suvarnabhum airport and want to take. the airport express. the area is kind of isolated for shopping but 2 stops by mrt to Sukhumvit. if you need to store your bags, they charge 20 baht per day.

Good location and value for money

This hotel is just few minutes walk from MRT Phetchaburi exit gate 3 from where you can easily access to convenience public transportation. Room was small but clean and basic amenities are there. Staff at the lobby very friendly and helpful. I didn't have breakfast or food at the hotel restaurant, but it is a sort of simple one and provide mainly Dimsum dishes. Internet wifi and LAN are not stable, maybe because of small bandwidth for such hotel. This could be improved easily.

Nice hotel on perfect location in Bangkok

Nice hotel, with freindly staff and clean nice rooms. The location is close by the metro station. One stop you are in Fortune shop mail. De other direction, one stop of the metro line you are in Terminal21 shop mail. Also beside the hotel the 7/11 shop. Good price/value for this hotel.

Very easy to get to most places from here

The best part of this hotel was its prime location by the subway, and that it's only a 15-20 minute walk to Suhkumvit if you'd like to walk. That alone made it absolutely worth it. The amenities were a little scarce - they didn't even provide a washcloth! - but overall, definitely bang for your buck. The little dimsum restaurant it is attached to was lovely.

Good inexpensive choice for young travellers

I chose this hotel as it was close to the Makkasan Skytrain stop. Walked from the station to the hotel. Walk was a little rough (narrow sidewalks, lots of pedestrians, construction to highrise close to hotel. Hotel was nice but basic. We were only there for 1 night and were given room 607 which has one window totally covered by something (assumingly because of nearby construction??). Room on street might have been loud but would have had a nice view. Floors are painted concrete. Bathroom had ??sulfur/musty smell. But for $28... I'm not complaining. It was clean. Seemed to be popular with young travellers. Took a taxi back to Skytrain for about 50 Bhat (<$2 US). For an cheap overnight, I think this is fine.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

To walk from Skytrain Makkasan staton. Exit station an walk towards main street (traffic from the taxi area only lead out towards main street). At street, make right and walk past subway stop to major street. Turn right and walk <0.5 mile to front door. Entrance is directly on main street. Easy walk.... but not so easy with luggage... Take a taxi.. they're inexpensive... Skytrain costs ~90Bhat for express (15 min no stops) or ~35Bhat for local "city line" which has 5 stops before airport. Express is a nicer train.

My Bangkok Trip 2012

I've been staying for few days in FX Hotel Makkasan Bangkok.I was almost sorry to leave as the stay was really nice and so are the staffs like Ornicha and Atit. Upon arriving I found myself in a valley of smiles from the very first person I met Ornicha. Within few minutes, she managed to check-in for me. Entering the room, it was simple and clean as well as the bathroom. However, there was only one mirror in the room, which was inside the bathroom. Personally, location advantage is my main consideration of hotel selection. In brief, About 3 minute walk to BTS, 7 minute walk to Airport Rail link and 5 minute to 7-11. To sum up, it is well located and worth what I paid.
