"Fantastic find. Was better than could of imagined."
A restful oasis in the pandemonium of Bangkok!
Lovely decor, beautiful bathroom, good pool, tasty breakfast, very helpful staff!
Thoroughly enjoyable - couldn't fault. Best hotel we stayed in during our trip to Thailand. (We stayed in 5 in total)
We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. From the time we arrived until we left, all of the staff was friendly and helpful. The room was excellent, and the morning breakfast was a great start to each day.
We chose this hotel because itwas close to the railroad station for an early morning start. The imposing photo in the foyer immediately grabbed our attention when enteering the hotel. This impression was continued with the funky Chinese decoration of the premises. Probably what impressed us most was the free mini bar.- admittedly only two beers and small packets of crisps. This was a first. We enjoyed being in the middle of the only complete China town in Asia. Although check intime was 2.00pm we were able to able to enter our room at 11.00 after a 6.00 arrival. Staff were consistently friendly wilh a good standard of spoken English. On our departure at 5.15am we were given a boxed breakfast.which we appreciated.
Okay, first the negative - LUXX XL don't do facebook as much and that's a quote from them directly via facebook when I pressed for a response to one of my queries. The negative stops there, in all my travels I've not stayed anywhere as lush as Luxx XL. To be honest, It was not the easiest place to get to so make sure that you print out the map on the website and ensure that you give this your tax driver. Also, get the receptionist to write down specific instructions on the map because the print out is far too small for tuktuk drivers to read.
As soon I stepped out of the cab and walked into reception, it was like being in trendy establishment, the aesthetics were fab and really the surroundings were really cool. But it doesn't stopped there, I walked into my room and it was really fabulous. Hardwood floors thorughout, king size bed, surround speakers, dvd players, plasma screens, top end bathroom, rain showers, huge room all together. Really, this is not a paid advertisement - it was definitely value for money, they certainly pulled out all the stops and I was thrilled that i made the right decision. The pool was fab and I was very happy with the breakfast area. All together I was really happy with the hotel. Goood job everyone. I will be coming back soon.
We stayed here from the 21st June - 24th June 14 and we can not fault anything wrong with this hotel. They were so helpful from the first day we got there. Staff was expectional and so was our room and the food there. It was such an amazing stay. Beds were perfect. Public Transport was easy to use and close by which was covinent. Highly recommend this place. They deliver a 5 star feel.
The staff here are incredibly welcoming, and the hotel itself is beautifully appointed, with huge rooms decorated in a contemporary colonial style. The pool is lovely surrounded by gorgeous sun loungers and a beautiful view of the river. I arrived here after a very long flight from London, and it was just what I needed. sadly only had a night before moving on, but based on that short experience I'd highly recommend it.
As the hotel itself is only accessible by boat I was a bit nervous about how practical it would be but in reality it works really well. We were lucky as by chance the boat was heading to the pier as we arrived otherwise you need to call the hotel to arrange being picked up. But on arrival you're issued with a mobile phone and it takes no more than 5 minutes for the boat to reach the pier. As the boat operates 24/7 there is no inconvenience, quite the opposite, being across the river takes you away from the hustle and bustle.
The building is a former mansion and is surrounded by well maintained gardens. There is a swimming pool which gives a great option to cool off and relax.
The staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful and whilst not expected, the staff operating the ferry were incredibly appreciative of any tips given.
There is free WiFi which was very quick and reliable all the time we were there.
The hotel itself is close to the Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Khosan Road. From the pier opposite there is a frequent and cheap ferry service along the river.

We are only short distance to the most popular tourist attractions in Bangkok such as The Temple of Dawn, The Grand Palace …More
Can't praise the staff highly enough! Professional, helpful and very efficient but not overly familiar or too attentive. We had a fantastic stay and will visit again. Will also recommend to others on a personal basis. Given the standard of service and the room this hotel is very reasonably priced.
