Recent guest reviews
This hotel is located very close to Makkasan station. Rooms are clean and modern western style. There is TV Internet the room. People working there speaker English and are very friendly. Place definitely worth recommending.
The hotel is nice, staff too, room is ok, clean, bathroom has everything you need, wifi ok, perfect for a short stay if you need to hurry to the airport because the hotel is perfectly attached to the airport rail link and the mrt and the canal boats (maybe even the buses). Check in and out was done in a few seconds.
There is so many transportation to choose form around the hotek. It is located next to MRT, Airport Link and even the saphan asok so we can use the boat to Pratunam Market or Platinum which cost only 11 Baht for a shortcut.
Just 3 minutes walk away from Pherchaburi MRT station, FX Metrolink lives up to it's name of being a Metrolink. Once you manage to locate the entrance (resembling one to a shophouse, although its far from it), one would be greeted by helpful staff who are well-versed in English. Rooms are of decent standard and cleanliness (given how this is part of the Furama brand). Something that was kind of a let down was the swimming pool which looked more like a small hot-tub. But well, that being said, this accommodation feels like one that's suited just for a quick stay as opposed to a luxurious one. Thank you for making my stay a pleasant and comfortable one.
I have stayed this hotel because my flight was late. This hotel location is Prime for travelers which is very closed to MRT Phetchaburi and Makkasan Airport Rail Link where you can connect to BTS or Airport conveniently. Hotel do have small fitness room and outdoor jacuzzi on the top floor, Inside the room have basic stuffs to comfort my stay. Breakfast is ok but not many choices.
I have some basic requirements for me to even consider a hotel and one of them is that the exterior wall does not act as a sieve when there is rain. This is not an exaggeration. After arriving at the hotel at around midnight (I was only planning to stay there for about five hours), it began to pour in Bangkok, which is not an uncommon occurrence. Water began to pour into my room to the point where the entire room was flooded in minutes. I was able to quickly find hotel staff who changed my room to another down the hall. This room also leaked, and not from the exterior wall, but instead it was from the area between the base molding and the wall on an interior wall. Luckily, using the bathroom towels I was able to stem the flow of water into the room (which was no where near what it had been in the previous room). I would never stay at this hotel again and if you want your belongings to remain dry, you shouldn't either.
Very convenient hotel in Bangkok literally 5mins from exit 3 pretchaburi mrt station and just stayed here again for 3 nights. Only issue was the wireless was pretty much unusable after 7pm each night.
Hotel located next to airport rail link (makasan) and MRT (petchabun). Easy access to town or major highways out of town. Clean, modern and suprisingly quiet given major street outside. One stop from Sukhamvit a major tourist area of Banhkok and skytrain which will get you into central Bangkok.
Arrived tooearly for check in but had a swim in the rooftop pool and some lunch and room was available 2 hours early. We stayed here for one night at the start of our tour of Cambodia and for a further two nights at the end of the tour. Our first room was smallish but was spotlessly clean and bed was really comfy. The second room was much bigger but again spotlessly clean and beds again really comfy. Breakfast was basic but did the job. Food in the restaurant was tasty and cocktails and coffees were made with care. All staff were friendly and helpful. Very close to both the metro and train station which is really easy to use and whisks you into the centre of Bangkok with ease. If you want a quiet hotel away from the centre then this is ideal.
We chose this hotel because it's good review and location. We needed to get our plain the next day at 9:10 am so having the metro link was very convenient to get to the airport just in 20 minutes. We payed 1500 baht for a night. Pros: - excellent location it's literally next to the MRT and the metro link - hotel is clean and modern, our room was very cleaned and cozy with room service. - you have a big clean bathroom - safety box and two bottles of water - hair dryer and tv - a kettle with coffee and tea - we arrived to the train main station from a long trip (chumpon - Bangkok) . It was convenient AS We just took the metro from the main station to Petchaburi and the hotel was just infront of it (look your left side) (60baht per person and no hassel or scams or trafficking with taxis) - staff is friendly - printing service - massage service - pool and fitness center Cons - We arrived at 6am, check in is at 2pm. If we wanted to check in earlier they charge 700 baht. We had to wait 8 hours in the hotel for check in. We could use the facilities meanwhile ( we were at the pool) or you can walk around Bangkok ( we went to a weekend market which wasn't very interesting and came back to the hotel and wait at the pool as we where very tired) - printing service is a bit expensive 20 baht per page - room service prices don't include 10% service and 7%VAT - pool is very small, it's more a jacuzzi but clean - the area itself is not interesting, there are a couple of restaurants around, we highly recommend going to "real ichi yakiniku & sushi" it's the true local dining experience at 120 mt from the hotel!!! - the chair in the room is a bit dirty, for some people this could be an issue NOTE: the airport train link runs only between 6am and midnight. It costs no more than 35baht/person. If you have an early flight this location is not the best as you will no be able to use the train and anyway will have to take a taxi so you should pick another area which has more interesting thing to walk by.
