Really enjoyed staying there. Free wifi, free breakfast. If u get bored with the breakfast, you can have breakfast nearby. There is a lot of food stall in Pratunam market. As you know Pratinum market open at early morning till midnight with 3 shifts. Each shift sells different products. From clothes, wallet, handbag, etc. It also near Platinum mall. Tips for wifi = you must first log in on the first floor, then you can use it in your room. You can't log in the wifi on your room.
The alley going to the hotel is quite narrow and full of people. Service is quite nice and average but the best thing is its location. Which is very near to shopping malls. Just as what their motto says "the heart of Pratunam". thanks tripadvisor
2 night stay at this hotel with friends, hotel looks old but surprising nice for three person room. Big room, solid bed, comfort for sleep. 5 minutes walks to Platinum Fashion mall, and so many food stall and convenient store near by, next step to Pratunam Market, good location for shopping. Overall is ok, just the lift too small and got lizard in the bathroom. It's worth for the money we paid, will come back again.
This was a very basic hotel, it's more likely for you to do fashion merchandising with the wholesale seller if you are a fashion merchants in your own country. The only selling point for this hotel is the location. Most shopping malls are within walking distance. You can find food easily available just outside the hotel. You can put away any expectation which will most of the time will be self service. The interior of the room is big, what I mean is you can house about 10 average size people into the room.
It was my first time in Bangkok and this hotel was highly recommended to me by my travel agent, thus, my expectations were a bit high. However, upon checking in, I'd say that our room was a bit of a letdown. The room was pretty basic and simple. There were no elegant furnishings and it seemed old already. But what' really nice was that it was really spacious. We booked a triple sharing and there were ample space for us and for our luggage. PROS: 1. Location. The best thing about the hotel is its location. It's located just beside Pratunam market which is a good source for low-priced (for both wholesale and retail) but definitely of quality clothes, shoes and fashion accessories. If you're from the Philippines, Pratunam market is their version of the Divisoria market. 2. Breakfast. Food was great. Although there were only several choices, what's nice is that they changed the menu daily. So you won't worry that you'd eat the same breakfast everyday. Another plus was the very accommodating staff at the restaurant. 3. Spacious room. Ample space for a group or family reservation. 4. Free mineral water daily. Stayed here for 2N/3D and each day they gave us 1 liter of mineral water for free. CONS: 1. Ambiance. Not a very inviting ambiance. Everything just seemed old. Plus, we really didn't have a nice view. Our room was at the first floor (they have the ground floor, mezzanine and then the first floor) and our window view was a dome exhaust room ventilator. 2. Elevators were t0o small. They have two elevators but only a maximum of 6 persons can fit each lift, less if the passengers have their luggage with them. Plus, elevators were slow. 3. Limited English-speaking staff. Although the staff have basic understanding of the English language, sometimes it was difficult to understand what they were saying. 4. There was only 1 English TV channel. Based on the TV channel list, there were about 3 English channels but we found only 1. 5. Wifi was not working. Upon check-in, they gave us the wifi password. But during our entire stay at the hotel, we weren't able to log-in and use their wifi. We had to rely on the data connection we subscribed to at the airport. 6. The beds were a bit stiff and not comfortable.
Hotel in the middle of bangkok busy town which very convenience with the transport such taxi & tuk-tuk beside the foods store and shopping mall Pratunam Mall with walk distance. Room is clean & breakfast in buffet style with wide choice of foods.
Very good location for tourist to take a walk, shopping or find a BTS Room's facilities is a little bit downgrade Staffs are friendly and welcome Nearby many famous shopping malls and centers Nearby food places and restaurants are awesome
Just two minutes distance to pratunam market, five minutes walk to platinum fashion mall and near to talad neon night market but the room is dusty and dirty. The staff provide very bad service. There is still alot street food nearby.
The location is their best selling point as it is in the middle of the city center. Market selling affordable stuff can be bought right outside the main door. Hot water is also provided along the corridor. Toiletries is also replenished daily. Rooms are very spacious and beds are comfortable to sleep in. Price is also reasonable. I will definitely book here again when I go back to Bangkok
The room was spacious. However, I faced an issue during my stay. As there were 3 of us in the family, we wanted to book the triple room as our friends are staying in the same hotel. However, when we were booking the room,the triple room was sold out. We checked if the 3 of us can stay in the normal room without extra charge and the reply we got back was yes. However, on the day of the check-in, we needed to top up extra and we weren't that pleased as we booked it with the confirmation that there will not be extra charge. Reluctantly, we paid the extra bed price. But what is more displeasing is that, the extra bed they gave us was a foldable wood plank frame with a very thin layer of mattress. It was painful to lie on as I can feel the wood plank. It's disappointing that we paid the amount for a normal bed but yet given such a thin bed. We called the receptionist for a better bed but all we got was angry housekeepers who came in to change the bed reluctantly. For the rest of the trip, the front desk receptionist did not smile but was hostile. As much as I liked the location and its close proximity to Pratunam Market, I did not enjoy the customer service.
