so far so good, comfortable, easy to access public transfortation
Perfect location and good value for money. Not big but exactly what we needed that time.
A reasonable value for a hotel within walking distance to the Grand Palace compound and Wat Pho. It is very close to the National Theater. The tourist "neighborhood" was very noisy for New Years eve but moderately noisy otherwise. Upon arrival it became obvious that they had *not* actually reserved a room as they walked us down a block to a branch hotel called the Sawasdee Smile Hotel which they claimed had equivalent rooms. There appear to be numerous Sawasdee hotels scattered around Bangkok. The "towels" given us were actually two thick bath welcome mats. More of an issue, the room window with lever panels would not close completely which provided some mosquito access. Security wise the window wouldn't open either and there was no problem from that standpoint. The air conditioner was actually over-sized for the room and was of the type that shuts off when the key is removed. The room did include a small refrigerator which did stay on even without the key. We found the staff courteous and helpful. Wifi reception was only good in the open air lobby/restaurant area but a plug outlet was available near the couch. The included breakfast (egg choice) was good one morning, but the next they only had the continental option.
[...] The building needs attention, but the rooms are relatively clean and the breakfast is good. Stay here if you understand what a basic guesthouse means in Southeast Asia. I think it is a good value.
This place clearly could benefit from attention, but the maids keep it acceptably clean. The area is nice and it is central. breakfast is good, with a few choices. Do not expect western standard for the room, but the bed linens are fine, and the room reasonably clean.
