Chinatown Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We were keen to experience Chinatown & the street food so booked here for the great location, the rooms looked good online & they had a pool to cool off in. I requested a non smoking room...upon arrival we were told we had free breakfast for the first night which was nice....our room stunk like fresh cigarette smoke it was horrid, we were moved quickly to another room but wasn't a first good impression. There is no compendium in the rooms so no information on what is available in the hotel. Most guests are Chinese and we felt we were treated differently..... first night we wanted to use the pool but it was closed at 7pm. Gutted, then the next afternoon we made it to use the pool and I asked for towels which I was told no more towels today go get yours from your room.... needless to say we left hot & angry to go back to our room without a swim.....then later in the evening around 9pm we were told we couldn't sit outside as they were closed, we said we just want to sit here we are staying here, no sorry we were told.... we couldn't wait to leave the next day, the worst place we have stayed..... pay abit more & stay somewhere else 👍🏾

We stopped here for lunch. It was very loud on the street and we were glad to step into a quiet lunch place. The servers were very attentive and the food was fresh. They had lemon soda and it was really good. The won-ton type soup that I got was also amazing. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here, but if I was nearby I would love to eat here again.

Situated in the middle of Yaowarat, great for exploring Chinatown. Staff friendly and helpful. Room very clean, made to look bigger with plenty of mirrors on the wall. Good sized bathroom with steaming hot water. Free wi-fi in all rooms. Breakfast rather limited to a few Thai dishes, although we discovered a grill area out the back which cooked eggs to order.

My partner and I chose to stay at Chinatown Hotel because it had decent reviews, a good location in the heart of Chinatown (with delicious street food right outside the door and just a short walk to the MRT) and a good price. However, we got exactly what we paid for: the staff were generally disinterested, our "superior" room was outdated and the size of a walk-in closet, the walls were very thin, the wifi was in-and-out, and our room's location directly next to the elevator meant a poor night's sleep. After going over to the rooftop bar at Hotel Royal Bangkok across the street, we realized that it might have been worthwhile to pay a little extra for a hotel with more to it and modern amenities.

The best thing about this hotel it's the location, super close to the train station, temples, food and you can easily pick the boat with a 5 min walk. The rooms are very small and the bathrooms quite old.

Reception staff efficient and sort-of pleasant. Quick access to room. At room was first slight problem....door does not open fully, as sliding door to bathroom would be damaged. So a floor-level stopper causes door to rebound at you if you forget and open rather quickly. safe was faulty, and took quite a while to rectify. Otherwise....average sized room, clean enough. At least it had a window. Bedding quite comfortable. Breakfast fare very limited, in nice surroundings, with prompt attention by smiling staff to check if you want egg dish. Quite a bit of casual seating around foyer. Chinatown Hotel lies at the bottom end of Yaowarat Rd[one-way], near the Chinatown Arch. Buses stop out front, sign with bus numbers here, from main shopping areas. Getting bus return to shopping areas is a little trickier. But so much to explore in the back alleys, a lot is only for wholesale though. Great eating at night all along Yaowarat Rd. Quite a walk to river ferries. But can be a better method of reaching main shopping areas of Bangkok.

We were very happy with service in restaurant. We walked in off the street and were shown to a table direct. The food was really tasty and most of the staff were friendly. They had no problem to making my meal vegan.

Basic hotel with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, with a window on the 5th floor that fully opens! At the time of my visit there was a Chinese s vegetarian street market that served food from midday until 10 at night when the famous shark fin resturant across the street . Very conveniently situated with a 15 minute walk to lampong railway station and access to the metro.

Our stay was great. We only booked for 2 nights, and planned to check other hotels for the rest of our stay. After our first night we extended the booking for the rest of our stay in Bangkok. Very friendly and helpful people at the reception. Spacious room with a decent bathroom and toilet. The breakfast buffet was awesome, good Thai breakfast with every day something different.

After the last responded a very bad exp with them... decided to go one more round to see their services....the room dont looks ok but acceptable for a cheap room within that area where the best spot within the town! Aircon best cold enough but was dripping on the very first 2 hours when we stepped in....but repair within time ...
