Ma Hotel Bangkok3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The staff were friendly and helpful. The loacation was away from the center of the city but close to the river for use of river boats and other viewing options. The only drawback was the pool was very small and located inside the hotel with a view to the lobby.
I loved the birds chirping outside my window when the sun came up each morning. I stayed on the 4th floor with a view of the parking area/entrance corridor, which is completely covered in a canopy of lush vines. My room was basic, but had nice old teak flooring, and a tiled, full bathroom. It wasn't perfect, but I got a great deal on [...](about half the walk-in rate), and I liked the place.This was my 4th trip to BKK, and was my landing spot into a new neighborhood. I liked that it is in an immediate area where many locals reside, free of touts (except taxi drivers across the street), yet close to Thanon (Road) Silom.Pros: Waking up to birds chirping at sunrise, quiet location (for BKK), almost outside the tourist area but still close to attractions, teak flooring in my room, room safe and fridge included, good shampoo provided, friendly staff, no issues checking out (I've had problems at other hotels).Cons: WiFi is expensive, and likely cumbersome. The location on map is wrong (it is near Surawong and Mahesak Surasak/Maha Nakhon/Second Stage Expressway), one light bulb was burned out. There is a sign stating that "outside guests" are not allowed, but I don't know if that is enforced. No screen on window, and mosquitoes are vicious!
