Grand China Hotel4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Disgusting and old with old bathroom features. Room had a smell about it. Lobby on each floor had a haunted look. Dining hall - disgustingly old n run down. Breakfast does not cater for international guests. Was to stay 3 nights. Moved out after 1st night. Will not recommend at all.
The hotel located very closed to China Town, therefore, it surrounded by exotic food. In the building have Starbuck Coffee and kind of plaza. The rooms have nice decoration, the facilities and amenities are fully set.Nice city view from rooms. Only one cons was smelly rug and I couldn't sleep at night.
My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights from 19th and 22nd August. The hotel is in an okay location at the end of the main street in Chinatown with good street food nearby. However the area is not particularly good for tourists and you will need a taxi or tuk-tuk to go to most other places. The hotel lobby was impressive and the room was large and comfortable, the AC worked well and we had a great view from the 15th floor. However looking more closely a lot of work is needed - the windows were dirty, the bathroom desperately needs upgrading and the Wi-Fi was non-existent in our room. The hotel has an extremely tiny pool on one of the top floors with a few sunbeds but it is not really useable as a pool. This was very disappointing. Breakfast (included in our stay) was good and varied including Thai and continental dishes. There is also a good revolving restaurant at the top of the hotel with a nice view of the city although drinks are quite expensive and it lacked atmosphere. The concierge service and prices were questionable and we would suggest organising these trips yourselves. Our trip to the floating market was expensive and when we arrived we were told that we also had to pay more to rent a boat. When we refused and said we wanted to go back to the hotel only then did our driver tell us that it was possible to walk the market for free. I am not sure how much input the hotel had in this set up but we were upset that this had happened on a trip organised by the concierge. All in all it was fine for 3 nights and did not ruin our trip but I wouldn't return and I think there are better value hotels in Bangkok.
- Do not believe photographs or description of this hotel it is a completely false representation. - Definitely NOT a 4 star hotel in my view. - If you go expecting 1 - 2 stars you maybe okay with what you find. I have waited 10 days before writing this review and can still not conjure up any alternative view. I was furious on arrival at the hotel and seeing the state of our room , and had we been staying for more than two nights, I would definitely have moved. I felt responsible to the 10 friends who were staying at the hotel, and were powerless to change it for them. Fortunately this was the 1st time for them in Bangkok so they had nothing else to compare it too unlike us. I need to express that the only thing grand about the China Hotel is the wording GRAND on the outside of the building. Everything else fails to compare. Firstly the hotel is in the middle of Chinatown. The hotel itself was old and rundown , the rooms were dark dingy, and smelly. The bathroom was disgusting although they did provide complimentary care products. The bathroom tiles were dirty, cracked and broken and appeared not to have had a good clean for sometime. Our room had clearly not been cleaned for a while as there was bits and pieces on the carpet which would have been collected had the place been vacuumed recently. The bedding was changed on a daily basis, but it was very grey in colour and didn't have that freshly washed linnen smell. The bed and pillows were however comfortable enough. I made a complaint to the check in counter, once entering and seeing the state of the room , and was shown to another room which I wanted to check out before moving however declined as it was the same terrible state. The staff at check in were unhelpful, as was the pool staff member we encounter. I would go so far as to say almost obstructive. Upon reflection there probably was not a lot positive to tell us about the hotel, as if you were aware at check in you would probably leave. A request to speak with the manager was not followed up with on the following day as promised , however by then I decided not to expend any further negative energy on this experience. The hotel must have used trick photography as the pool was very small . I'm not sure how many rooms the hotel has but you could not get many people at all in the pool at once. In infact 20 people in the pool would have been like 6 in a spa. I've added a photo of the pool to try and give it some real perspective as opposed to the wonderful photography. I've also added a photo from the pool looking up to the restaurant to show the true state of the building. There was no space to sit around the pool, let alone lie around on loungers or day beds. In fact there was barely enough room to place your towell. Breakfast - breakfast was included in the price however was nothing to write home about. Our friends chose to eat downstairs in the Starbucks coffee shop for breakfast for the four days that they were there after eating there on the 1st morning. The only positive I can give this hotel was the concierge. Without this staff member I am sure the hotel would have consistent terrible reviews . I would never stay there again, even if it was free.
The first impression is that this Hotel is too old. I stayed at room1206 with my colleague. The light's almost not enough. I hate that. There are some weird paintings on the wall which describe a boy no face seeking behide a window. It was so creepy. But the room's clean, breakfast buffet is good. I don't talk much with employees but i think they are nice.
Rooms were dirty. Carpets not cleaned, had dirt and things laying on carpet. Verandah was filth. Beds hard. Staff beautiful, lovely smiley personalities. Star bucks in hotel. Restaurant on 5 th floor good food and cheap. Pool. Mmmm. Small on the roof.
This old hotel is a good choice for you who like to eat and eat during your trip. Located on Main Street of china town Bangkok, grand China hotel helps you to experience a very peaceful and cultural Bangkok. Friendly and helpful staffs and I'm so impressed with the bellman who took me to get a grab car in case of heavy rain. Room is clean but I don't like the style of it.
Our stay here again was awesome. We were able to check in around 11am which was a bonus. Our rooms on the 15th floor look like they have been renovated recently. Nice blackout curtains, new carpets and cupboards re painted. Power points now beside the beds. Hotel was very quiet so we were able to get a good nights sleep. Air conditioning was fine and TV was good. Lots of channels to choose from. The restaurant on the 5th floor serves tasty Thai food. There is also a small cafe on the ground floor which serves cheap good food and cold drinks. You also have Starbucks as well and S&P bakery . The shopping area on the first few floors has not taken off and only a handful open for business. My only real complaint would have to be the wifi. It kept dropping out. Staff are very friendly . I will stay here again if I can get a good deal. :)
The Hotel service is Good. Check in and Check out is fast. Room is clean and comfort. Location is great. Especially walk down the street in the night there are many foods. The only issue is the power point in the room not very easy access. Overall is very good.
The outside of the building looks GRAND no doubt but once you step into the hotel lobby. It's simply a decent, simple n clean hotel & nothing to brag about being GRAND. Room was casual, comfortable n clean. Wound I stay here again? No Unless they fix the signal for wifi. 5 days, to do work. I need to go reception to use the stronger signal to use wifi. In the room, it's always an issue ... u get in n within minutes, the signal simply disappeared. It's most frustrating. Nothing can be done? Sadly, this is one major problem that needs resolution or I am sure customers will not stay here. Just like me.
