OMg !! what a horrible nasty place, looks like someone had a good idea and failed to follow up with good money. Full of Chinese tourists from the countryside of China spending there hard earned Yen. The food is tasteless pap, not fit for a pis sty. The poor guy who work there, most from Burma look like they really have to be somewhere else. Don’t go, there is nothing in that area for miles and the hotel is cheap but disappointing. And also continuously blocked by TV companies making commercials ... crazy
Stayed at Luxor several years ago and it was really nice. However, a lot has changed. Stayed in the West tower for a work convention. The room was very dates and worn. Bath tub clogged. Skimpy on towels and only 2 pillows per queen bed. Mattresses need replaced are very lumpy. Went to the first pool and was told it was $60 a chair, Really! The other pool was free. I have never stayed at a hotel where you had to pay for a certain pool! Food options are mediocre. Had a drink at the Mexican restaurant and they charge for chips and Salsa. This place is shabby and nickel and dimes you to death. Also don't expect aoffee maker or frig in room! I have stayed at cheap hotels that have them! Never again!
It was quite easy to reach the hotel with the help of Google maps, the only problem was instructing the cab driver for he didn't understand English well. I would suggest to not take the main roads for there are two tolls along the way. I was in for a surprise when I arrived over at the hotel for my room was upgraded on account of availability and was served one of those fruity Thai meals. It's my first day at the hotel today, I hope the next three are just as smooth. As for the hotel staff, they were polite and did their best to help me out even though they couldn't speak English all that well.
Inconvenient when going back to hotel from IMPACT (500baht for taxi, 150baht for UBER). Diameter is 2.14KM only but you must travel about 7km as the road is not connected. A shopping mall call Central Plaza (5.3KM) and ladies hand bag shop Naraya (5KM) is near, only less than 50baht. Or walking distance about 300meter there is a roadside food stall, 24hours mini market and a Japanese restaurant. The hotel staff know Chinese as a lot of tourist from China, they can be quite noisy at night. The interior is an Egyptian themed as I see some wedding photo captured here, which is quite nice. Hot water available near the spiral stairs on every floor.
Location and transportation This hotel is located in the middle of rows of houses , it's very secluded from malls and shops , but for its price , you can pay for a taxi to go anywhere nearby and still have some savings . There is a small motorbike taxi just outside the hotel if you don't mind . Cost about 60bath to go to IMPACT for events / exhibitions . Still cheaper on total compared to living to nearby hotels. Rooms The rooms are clean and huge, a little old but bearable . Enough space to have 6 friends to gather in the room Staff They have Friendly staff with limited English but goes all the way to help you including getting a taxi and even drive you to the nearest 7-11 at midnight without charge . They can call for taxis and it's just an additional 25 bath to pay to taxis Food The food is good!!! Tom yum goong seafood comes with a big water prawn served with pad kao , it's something to return for. However I'm a little disappointed that the room service does not serve the same quality as the dine in . Not only the ingredients are different but the taste is not as good.
After spending 5 months travelling and staying in hostels we booked this hotel through hotwire for the last night of our trip. This was literally the worse place I've stayed. It was advertised as 4* airport area hotel. The hotel is in the middle of no where so you have no choice but to eat in their restaurant. The hotel is miles away. Skewers ordered at bbq came out cold, meat quality on the other meal was the worse thing I've tasted after 3 months travelling Asia on a budget, I'm not even exaggerating. Breakfast the next morning was unacceptable. Staff were sitting down despite all the cereal, eggs and food being cold, almost run out and clearly having been sat out for a while. The food was terrible. Our room had lots missing as advertised and had to repeatedly return to reception (no way to call down) to ask for things. Finding a staff member who spoke English to an adequate level was difficult. Most laughed at us and returned to playing on their phones without responding. When we asked for the manager we were told there was not one which explained a lot. After staying in cheap hostels across South East Asia, I've never encountered such poor service, such consistently poor food or such a disappointing stay. The hotel is disappointing by any standards, if I'd paid 3/5 pound a night for a hostel I'd still be disappointed. We felt totally unwelcome, had we been staying in the city centre I would have moved to a different place, unfortunately there was no where else nearby.
We were in for a competition at Impact Stadium Don Muang, and the hotel is less than 10mins away from there. The only means of transportation was by taxi, as the hotel was situated just off the main road in the middle of a village. This wasn't an issue for us because the hotel concierge was superbly helpful with overcoming the lack of transportation, and securing a taxi was not a hassle for us at all. Central Mall was close by, also about 10 mins by taxi. Also, Bangkok city was about half an hour away by taxi, if you take the highway. The ambience of the hotel itself was nice and quiet and I didn't find any disturbance from the other occupants. The rooms were basic, but very spacious and clean. I can't commend the hotel staff enough for being extremely helpful with our requests, and I didn't find much of a language barrier (we conversed in English).
By no means is this in the hear of Bangkok, and by no means will your taxi driver be able to find it without a great set of directions, some patience, and a GPS. Situated quite literally in the heart of a village in what feels like the middle of no where, it is not far at all actually from the Dom Meaung Airport, and good for attractions and travel on the northwest side of the city. Good food, open til late, and a definite Chinese tourist presence, the rooms are clean and tidy, and the price is agreeable for this level of quality and service in Bangkok. Great staff, and great price make it desirable, while location and ease of finding transportation make it a touch obscure.
It is an okay option for those who need to stay near the Impact convention centre. The hotel has an Egyptian theme and a nice breakfast for locals. Most of the staff does not speak English at all but the two receptionists helped me by translating and communicating with taxi drivers. If you plan to visit tourist sites in Bangkok it is best to stay in the city centre as this hotel is very far (after crossing many toll gates) and many taxi drivers do not know the way. the closest metro station is also far so you will need to take a taxi first and then a metro to get into town. big waste of time and money. There are few taxis in the area but they don't speak English as this is not the usual tourist area, not many nice restaurants nearby so we ordered room service mostly but the food is not thai fusion and not suitable for foreign tourists as its very soupy. the locals seem to be enjoying it though. *no kettle in rooms for tea/ coffee room service doesn't always understand your order as they don't speak English asking for anything extra or different from the menu is a struggle but it was an interesting experience as we saw a more genuine 'thai' culture / food away from the city/ tourist areas.
we chose this hotel on price, which was ok and its proximity to the impact arena as we were to attend a santana concert. there is virtually nothing in the vacinity of the hotel to do or eat unless you like thai street food, it is 500 metres from the main road, a tip if you are walking out turn left, we turned right and into a dead end, the area is a light industrial estate with some dwellings. leaving for the impact arena was easy as the staff booked a prompt taxi which was 65 bhat on the meter going, be warned coming back is a rugby scrum of illegal touts quoting up to 600 bhat for the same 15 minute journey, we settled for 200bhat as it was nearly midnight. a trivial point, we waited outside reception for the taxi and i was badly bitten by mosquitoes, a first for me in urban bangkok. as posted before the hotels main clients seem to be chinese tourists who are bussed in and out, there was also a large group of teenage tennis players staying, but they were all competing and we heard nothing form them at night, in fact the hotel was deadly quiet the night we stayed. we werent able to check the bbq resaurant as it closed as we got back from the concert. would we stay again, a qualified yes and only if we were attending the impact arena, this is not an hotel for backpackers or solo travellers or indeed families, there is nothing to do within any reasonable distance and without a car or use of taxis of either sort, ie bike or car, you are completely trapped. on the upside the staff were excellent, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast was as large as you wished, but as usual in this type of hotel, served cold.
