Good enough for several days staying for such money. Inspite of need rennovation was clean& comfortable. Good breakfast, good&equipped bath with all working, good bed. What's neseccary for traveller more? To all main destinations nearly 100-150 on taxi. Nearby 7/11 and street food. Very good and friendful staff, especially on reception and in hall: smiling and always ready to help. English of staff good. Staff is the main advantage of hotel! Thanks to all. The main disadvantage: noisy&need to clean condition!
Five days here. Pool good, food acceptable but not flash, no complementary Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi reception poor in places. Shower water can smell like swamp water. Security staff out the front always helpful and friendly and will arrange taxis quite well. Second time here. Door to balcony sealed off this time -- good for drying clothes, and photography. Working class area of apartments, but quite safe. Laundry machines next door and around the corner. Hot water fluctuates from warm to scalding and occasionally cool. Beds are very very firm. No room clock (not an issue). TV news channels but no BBC or CNN – if you need those. 7-Eleven at ground level – which has hot food for cooking up… And 6 L of water very very inexpensive. Lifts can be slow, but patience is good, and always check out the pool and the city view. Nothing in area really (apartments for workers), but if have business in the area, the place is old but decent enough. Not enough power plugs. Can only charge equipment when in the room (removing room key shuts off all power).
The location is in a quiet neighbourhood near the Department of Labour and well equipped for Seminars and Group Programs. We were very well received and had an Interesting Breakfast Buffet including Western and Asian Dishes to choose from. Lunch was Thai and International Dishes with pleasant service for Water and Soft Drinks as we did not need Alcohol during the Training. During the day the Coffee Shop provides a la carte until 9 pm. The rooms are clean and simple and the beds are very comfortable ! Room cleaning was very efficient and quite fast - we had emphasis on not changing the sheets during our 2-day stay.
Stayed 3 nights. Old decor and worn out room furniture and cathode ray box tv without cable TV. Room WiFi is payable. Although there's one 7-11 store just outside the hotel, there's practically nothing else. You have to to take cab 10-15mins to reach nearest BTS Victory Monument Station for shopping and food. Hotel caters to tourist groups. Room sound proofing is very bad and you can hear people talking and closing door. Especially inconsiderate tourists who talked very loud who sure will disturb your sleep. If you are looking for cheap hotel and need a place to sleep and put up with noises, this is the place for you.
Service counter not really friendly. The room too dark and toilet look like 80"but still acceptable. From hotel to Pratunam tuk tuk price around 150-180baht. Nice breakfast. Didn't take the plug and rent from Receptionists but then service are bad. 7-11 just on the left 1min of the hotel
I was checked in last night with a group of elderly women. Our room were separated to several floors. One of bellman took our luggage together and put into the trolley. He was informed by my mom that we will go to the room by starting from floor 8 first. Unfortunately, my group started at floor 6. They were together sent one by one of their group to the room. I understand how tired the bellman was, as he went to find us at floor 8 and he had to came back to floor6. We met him with unpleasant face at floor 6. We really felt guilty to him but the word that we heard from him was so rude. He blamed elderly lady!! How gentleman he is!!! That was not enough, after he went to delivered the luggage at floor6, we again met him in front of our room at floor7 while he was delivering our luggage. He asked the rest of elderly women to take all the luggage themselves to floor8. Only the their bags were not the matter as they can carry but there was one box approximately more than 10 kg, imagine how they can carry themselves. He gone after put the luggage in front our room at floor7. We had no choice but to stay in the same room as the important stuff was in the box and we couldn't carry it to floor8. We understand how his feeling but you have to understand that this was their first time in their life in Bangkok. They are the mourners of the king's funeral. They are from other province. They are totally know nothing and they were miscommunication among them and my mom who was the leader of the group. I was so upset with the very poor service of the bellman. How can people with such attitude work in hospitality industry. Where is his service mind???? This was their nightmare in Bangkok created by your bellman. Thanks Princeton Bangkok!
I was here to have a buffet lunch with a group of friends joined tour to Bangkok. They served us good dishes, fresh, and various. The staffs and employees were helpful and Friendly. The location is strategics in town. Wish i can come back someday.
The Princeton would have been 5 star when built, but a little age now. It is 30 min from the CBD, and no shuttle bus (their webpage needs updating). Felt safe and secure. Staff always helpful and polite. Pool is fantastic. Have to pay for Wi-Fi (go to the adjoining 7-Eleven and get a data SIM card for less). Good air conditioning. Only two English TV channels, and no CNN or BBC news. Security staff great for getting taxis. As always, have your destination written in English and Thai. They can change currency, but better rates at MBK in the CBD. Half hour walk to Victory Monument. Use the laundry facilities to the apartment block left of the hotel, up the small ramp. 30 baht for an entire large load, than 60 baht per item. Hot water on 10th, but lacked pressure and temperature on 12th. Can get 6 L container water for 30 baht at 7-Eleven if staying a few days. Bangkok shower water -- swampwater smell, but that will be anywhere. 100 baht to CBD by meter taxi. Conference centre. Fitness centre is one converted room with a bit of equipment.
Bangkok is busy at the airport itself. for Visa you need 1000batt and a passport size photo. which i was not aware. Princeton Hotel location was good and i booked through the web for 9 nights. The room was fine for a busy city. It was my first trip to Bangkok and it offers a good rate. the House keeping were very attentive to details. The front office and in villa dining need more English speaker and sometimes do not have any idea of other locations within Bangkok or to take any food order. The porter who receive me was helpful and kind to suggest any other tourist attraction. i do recommend the hotel. As i do not consume any pork or beef product it was challenging at the buffet. The menue did change after a few days and it was with a better breakfast choice. if you want to do good shopping i do recommend jj market which opens from Saturday to Monday and MBK market. jj market offer better price.wifi you have to buy a package where on the web it says free wifi. The bar do have the beverage menue which upon request were not available.
The hotel was in need of a little maintenance but clean. The staff was helpful but only a couple of the front desk employees could speak English and then not very well, but we got by. The bed was hard and you have to use your door card to power your room. Wifi is not included and hard to operate. The breakfast buffet is catered towards Chinese because the bulk of the guest are Chinese who arrive on tour busses. It was good at first but for me got a little old after a couple of days. If I go back to Bangkok I'll probably stay at another facility
