The hotel looks quite old from the exterior but the doorman was extremely helpful. The interior have lots of refurbishment works to do but is still acceptable. Room is clean. The bath area is still the bath tub type, making it very difficult to shower a small kid. The low water pressure from the shower doesn't help but the temperature can swing from warm to either very hot or cold. Location wise is perfect. It is only 7 minutes walk to Emporium, where the BTS station are. Only setback is, the route to Emporium not stroller friendly. We have to push our stroller on the road due to no ramp onto the pedestrian walkway. Otherwise, it is a recommended hotel.
We were given a room on the smoking floor. Front desk staff inefficient and unprofessional. Front desk could not move us to a non-smoking floor/room. Owner advised that guests were permitted to smoke on the property to stay in business. After checking in, returned to front desk for a room with shower. Was told that shower could be taken outside the tub,next to which is a toilet, wonder how a shower could possibly be taken. On asking for a particular cuisine restaurant, way to an opposite direction was given, for whatever reason best known to the owner. This is a very low rating property. Do not get deceived with the low room rate. Not worth staying at this hotel.
I stayed here based on a recommendation from lonely planet (2016 guide) and found that it has deteriorated. Needs paint, woodwork is stained , door veneer is peeling and the bathroom needs grout and new fixtures. I paid $100/ night and feel that is too much for what I got.
Clean room with all the expected facilities like TV, hair dryer, small fridges, and security deposit box. Also like that they give big soap bars. However, the swimming pool opening hours are inconvenient for working folks since it opens from 8am to 6pm which is when most people are at work so I could hardly use it or mostly had to rush. Also the towel cleaning lady comes too early around 8am. One day I went for breakfast around 7.30am,came back to the room to change and go for a swim and found my used towel already taken for cleaning. So I had to use a fresh one after my swim which was just an unnecessary extra fresh towel used which goes against environmental policies to save water which most hotels strive to these days. Otherwise the hotel is OK.
Stayed here for maybe half a week for a business trip. It's a clean hotel. Location is only ideal when your business is nearby. Breakfast is a bit boring but filling enough. I'll describe it as a thoughtful hotel though...with a condom right by the bedside! (A Bible is on the other side). I must say it's the first time i saw a condom placed so conveniently in a hotel. Careful though. It's pricey!
We arrived there at 9am and asked to check into our rooms since it says 24/7 check-in on Hotels.com (where we booked the hotel) but the hotel said we weren't allowed to check in until 2pm. The staff was very unfriendly with our group of 7 girls and demanded to hold our passports and immigration forms in order for us to check in, something I've never heard of before. After a lot of back and forth with the manager, they finally agreed to give us a room at around 10:30am and they made photocopies of our passport like other normal hotels. It was a very weird experience and we decided to stay somewhere else the next day because of how unprofessional they were.
I have stayed at this hotel quite a number of times over the past few years mostly for work. I return, because I like the location, the rooms are comfortable and nice, and sometimes they have good deals. Just be aware that there is only one floor that caters to non-smokers and a note added to an on-line reservation may not be honored. An email or a call could be more effective to have no surprises when you check in.
We had a seminar here and found the room to be very clean and comfortable. The servers were also very helpful too. The buffet lunch was excellent as it included buffet salad and dessert. For hot food, there was a nice selection of more than 20 dishes, which you have to order and the kitchen will prepare immediately.
Great little hotel, walking distance to The Emporium Shopping Centre and Cinema. Friendly staff, clean room's, nice breakfast. Stayed 2 nights and will use next time. Good central location. 40 minutes from Suvwarnabhumi Airport
it is about 30 to 45 mins away from the airport but it isn't in the city center which is great as I don't want too much craziness in BKK. It is 4 min walk to BTS and there are malls around me. The staff is very friendly and they speak great English. The breakfast is quite pricey so I didn't take the package and I won't recommend anybody to do it as you can eat on the street or outside for way cheaper price. The room is very big and comfortable. Again, this is not a 5 star hotel so there are some flaws but they didn't bother me. Everything worked for me while I was staying there.
