The location of the hotel is good. The BTS (S3 station) is right across the street. However, the service is bad. The first day they gorget to put the bath floor mat in the room. The second day they forget to put the bathform, shampoo, and hand
towel in the room. The room service bring those stuff about four hours after my request call. Worst of all, the day-shift staff of the front counter is rude and unwillingly to help.
I wanted to like this place. It is very close to Chong Nonsi BTS stop. But the room had just too many problems. I could not wait to get away.
There are no English channels on the TV.
The internet was down more than up.
The massive shower door
would not close.
The rain shower would not work.
Two of 4 bathroom lights were missing.
There were two safes in the room. NONE worked.
The tall bathroom door scrapped the ceiling making it difficult to even close.
The balcony door was sealed shut so could not be used.
On the good side-
The staff was kind.
The breakfast was fine.
The bed was good.
I was put in a room on the second floor...the room faces a restaurant/bar and a narrow street with parked taxis (the taxi drivers would try to sell everyone everything...taxi rides...massage services. and more)...if you open the curtain in my room
all these street people would see everything in my room...the street was extremely noisy all night long.. drunken bagpackers who would cry out a lot of words with umlaut, local peoople trying to sell all kinds of things, motor cycles racing through, cars....it was a nightmare which I did not need to fall into sleep to get...I would avoid this hotel at any costs
the room appears to be clean at first...then I found on my bath towel (there was stuff that look like blood stains)...the drainage system probably did not work prorperly, so there was a strong foul oder coming from the toilet area of the bathroom.....they have one of those modern Asian AC units with a remote...at first, I thought that was a good sign...but it turned out the AC was extremely noisy, comparable to the noise level of those old window AC units found in a cheap, old and smelly motel by the highway in a poopr US state... they have two bath robes in my room..but the bathrobes had a very strong-weird smell (it was explained to me that the previous guests ordered the roomservice of "aroma body massage" offered by the massage parlor located on the first floor of the hotel"...so I guess by wearing the robe (either one of the two in my room), you would get some of that "nice" aroma from the previous guests and these nice massage ladies who look to be in their 60's
I'm normally very adaptable and have stayed in hotels and hostels across Asia, Europe and America.
But this one has been the worst in about 10 years traveling.
The staff is really rude and the worst is that there are bugs everywhere, even in the
bathroom. Big and small croacaraches, flies and bed bugs.
During my second night I had to leave the room because it was infested with bugs. I showed all the signs I had been attacked by bugs to the staff and they didn't apologize and just told me to wait 20 minutes to have another room. It never happened and I had to move to the Holiday In Express in front. A little more expensive but a HUGE difference.
Bugs can be anywhere but the amount of them here is really amazingly big; anyway the real bad thing was how the staff reacted; they didn't care and were very rude.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Go to Sala Daeng station and walk to Soi 4 for many bars.
