This is not a luxury resort by any means, but if you are looking for somewhere cheap to stay in Bangkok that is really close to the BTS system, this is it! I booked through Expedia and was meet by the friendly staff at the front desk. Every thing was just as I expected. Clean room, AC, not too noisy except for the BTS trains, but proximity is everything. Being so close to the Nana BTS station made for an easy transfer to and from the International Airport as well as the major shopping areas.
good location and the staff are extremely friendly. Lots of restaurants and convenience is the BTS right in front of hotel. Its approx. 15 mins walk to the Terminal 21 - a trendy high rise building with lots of different exotic food on every level.
I booked for my Stay in March, through Agoda. It says pay to property. In my past experience other hotel only charge me when i arrive. But this hotel charge me immediately today upon booking! Turns out they don't even have a website for me to email. I contacted them through Agoda asking them to send me receipt. No response. Do not book this hotel.
I stayed here for one night and paid extra to get a more quiet room in back of the hotel. I felt it didnt help much cause you hear the trafic very well. Rooms had a smell of mold. Breakfast was served in "sports bar" arround the "corner" who tasted great.
The information on TA is generally accurate, but one should be aware that there are some annoying maintenance issues that any guest will have to deal with. The hot water is from an electric heater over the shower. It turns out a feeble trickle of tepid water at best. Hot water isn't generally a requirement in Bangkok, but it's rather annoying that one CANNOT take a hot shower when one wants one. This is a strike against the hotel. Generally, the room needs some maintenance TLC. Door panelling is peeling. Bathroom grout is riddled with mould. Drawers stick and rattle due to worn or broken rails. None of this is a killer, but does bring down the feeling of comfort one gets from a well maintained hotel room. With that said, I found the staff largely friendly and helpful. It took some explaining for them to understand that my fiancée isn't the normal "guest for the night", but their expectation that all "guests" turn in their ID is understandable. We were probably the exception. Not bad for the price, but you can get better maintained and far more modern rooms for only a few dollars more per night.
I have prepaid this hotel with breakfast. When we checked in at this hotel, no one was helping with our luggage. Room was smelling bad like someone just stopped smoking. Food was served at the bar next door. Special small size food was given to guests from City Lodge, and only 2 kind of dishes was given. (Out of 10) We asked for more food the last day. TV with American soccer was turned on and was very noisy. Only one The, coffee or juice was included No one give information how the aircondition work it was turned on at 15 degrees when we came. Remember 2 free water in the room. Next one 90 bath. (14 bath in shop next door) Unfortunately i opened a bottle by accident. We have a long discussion if there were 1 or 2 bottles opened. The best was that the charwoman was smiling and very kind. Last year we visited Legacy Express Sukhumvit - No complain there. The staff even stopped a taxi for us and make a good prize (I always give extra, taxi are very cheap)
I have spent in City Lodge Soi 9 two nights. Hotel is located on the main street. I had a early trips round the city and hotel offered me to have a breakfast in their other hotel. I have spent my afternoons in swimming pool. Ask the reception to use this option.
The best part about this hotel- Really convenient as it is next to bts station, maybe about 10 meters walk. Very cheap for its location. Room is basic, quite narrow and dark. Loud old school a/c that is either too hot or too cold. Hard to adjust. Agree with other reviews- smell of smoke. Not so nice as we were traveling with our two year old. But the receptionists did apologize as they were out of non-smoking room. TBH, very comfortable bed and pillows. Happening night market outside of the hotel, though a little dodgy. One of a kind experience at this hotel.
This is a very old hotel and needs some urgent renovation but at least it is clean. There are better hotels in this area for the same price. The only good thing at this hotel is the location with many excellent restaurants and shopping malls nearby. The standard rooms are very noisy. If you need a quiet room there is a surcharge!!! Requested a quiet room at the backside or high floor but got a very noisy room just next to the skytrain station. Reception staff is very friendly except one lady which was not nice at check in.
The location of this hotel is ideal if you wish to sample the Sukhumvit / Nana nightlife. Its cheap, clean, functional and get amazing value for money. As long as your expectations are managed by the bargain price you are paying you will never be disappointed.
