My brother and I found this place near to the Makkasan airport rail link and Phetchaburi MRT as an alternative to FX Metrolink (I suggest paying a little more to go to FX) and was rather disappointed with the room. Overall it was an OK experience but we would like to point out some things for the management to consider: - 2nd floor rooms facing the road (ours was 210) tends to be noisy even at night as the hotel sits along the main road. - Housekeeping staff have a corner space near my room that they use to work and chill, and in the afternoon after check-in they can be heard talking and laughing loudly along the corridor. - The toilet is poorly designed; the toilet bowl is so close to the main door, the shower area has no curtain nor soap holder (floor gets wet and you have to put your toiletries on bathroom floor which is not something you expect from a hotel), and the basin stopper can't be fully removed, which means you have to lift it to drain the water when you finish using the basin (yes, putting your hand through the mucky water that has pooled there. Imagine after brushing your teeth) - Wi-Fi doesn't work; can't even find the signal for my room (paper says Dvaree Flr 2-2 but can only locate 2-1,which doesn't work). For two persons, you have to key in separate username and passwords which are a hassle. Just provide a single password that works throughout the property. That said, reception staff are efficient and friendly at check-in and checkout. Even at 230am they were quick to get us a cab. Kudos. Location is great and there's a pretty decent cafe next door worth visiting (Rose Lamoon). Thank you!
This is a rather quaint hotel, particularly the lobby. However, can't say the same for the rooms, which can look different, with different layouts. Also, depending on which room one gets, it can get awfully hot, especially in the afternoon, early evenings, and even at nights - the air-con are not strong enough, or can cool the room fast enough. It's best for like an overnight stay, I would think. Coz, most rooms don't have a rack to place the luggage bag. Oh, I was even locked out from the hotel one day, was the lock malfunctioned. On the positive side, most of the staffs are friendly and helpful, except for one female staff who can be rather temperamental - she's probably not very well suited for this job as a receptionist. Oh, and free wifi is limited to only 2 devices, if this is a concern. Anything more than that, one will either have to go the lobby, or forget the network of one of the devices. It's also very close to the Petchaburi MRT/subway (@10 mins walk) as well as the Makkasan Airport Link station, which is really great.
Good budget hotel nearest the first stop out of the metro from the airport, easy to spot along the road. Staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating. Room was clean, and neatly arranged. Great stay for business people who go in and out of bangkok.
Stayed here for 4 days/3nights. We arrived at past 1pm, we had to wait an hour to have our rooms ready. And when they finally gave us our keys, we went up and saw that the assigned room was not ready after all. A staff was still inside not yet done with cleaning, so we had to wait again right by the door. The room's size is fine -- not huge but not small as well. 2 twin beds were of the right size. They only provided 2 pillows for each bed -- one was fine and one was actually a throw pillow with a shiny/slidy cover that I didn't get to use at night because it just wasn't comfortable for sleep.. maybe for a sofa it would have been appropriate. The A/C wasn't centralized, it was an old split-type but it was working just fine. There is a shortage of electrical sockets, there's only two and you know we had to share charging all the gadgets we brought.. we had to unplug the television and fridge to use the sockets -- that was really disappointing. The heating system in the bathroom heats just fine. There are no kits provided other than a bath gel and a conditioning shampoo. But what I do apreciate though is that they give you a refill every day -- the toilet papers, shampoos, bath gels, and even 2 bottles of water. On our third day they took the towel that we placed on the floor by the toilet bowl and didn't bother to replace it. The breakfast they served was so basic and they served THE SAME food every single day of our stay there. No variety whatsoever. If any, they removed the soup on our 2nd and 3rd days. The food actually tastes good but I'd appreciate variety. Nobody wants to eat the same food every single day. Regarding the location, I don't appreciate it that much because there aren't any near hangput spots in the area. Even just coffee shops would have been much appreciated. The only coffee shop was in the hotel itself. Good thing there is a 7-Eleven shop just beside the hotel and that's about it. The MRT station is just a 5-minute walk though. Mostly we took their public buses to get to our destinations. Nothing special about this hotel. But it's a good choice if you're aiming to save money on hotel fees and just spend the entire day touring and being out of the hotel.
The hotel room itself was quite small but the bed was totally fine and the sheets really clean. The bathroom was a bit outdated but in general the room was totally ok for the price. If you use the laundry service, take photos of your laundry and ask for a receipt when you leave it to the reception - our 3 pieces of clothing got lost but the staff managed to find them eventually after several phone calls and relatively long waiting. The staff is helpful but patience is needed because of the language barrier as we did not speak thai.
Staff is not polite to guests. They dont know speak English. Difficult to communicate. When ask something from receptionist, she always tell I am busy. Very rude staff. Food also poor quality. No windows to open in rooms . Only door is there.Staff is not respect to guest. Dont select this hotel. We will never visit. Kumari
Choose this hotel for its closeness to the Airport link , staff okay , this hotel requires a total refurbishment, musty smell, carpets stained, badly marked walls, black mould in shower tiles, supplied a very old kettle but no cups or complimentary coffee etc, sheets and towels clean however room not cleaned , I stayed 2 nights. The restaurant attached was good and nice staff, cannot comment on breakfast as did not have any.
I chose this hotel because it's close to MRT, about 5-7 minutes walk I would say. The room itself was pretty standard, it was small but clean so I have no complaints about it. Staff were gentle and helpful they allowed me for early check-in Wifi was working, the only drawback is dont have any good restaurant near by, only 7eleven is there beside the hotel. Overall, if one is looking for a simple and inexpensive stay, it's the place to go.
Poor of facilities. First time I saw this kind of hotel. You can get better hotel with less price. When you speak with staff they ignore you. You need to ask more than once... I saw only one thing good. It's near to sky train.
