Right in the heart of Chinatown, a welcome refuge from the street bustle. Rooms were very clean and wonderfully decorated as was the rest of the Hotel. Interior reflection pond, chinese antiques and furniture made for a great experience. Staff was very helpful and very pleasant.
"Nice Place to Stay For Vacationers and Travelers"
The hotel was very clean and well kept. There was only a musty smell that is expected in humid area. Turning on the bathroom fan helped air out the room. Also, there is no elevator and we stayed on the fourth floor so you can try and ask for a room on the lower levels if steep stairs is not your thing. Very close to the MRT station which is a good landmark for taxis and tuk-tuk directions. Rollaway beds are not very comfortable but if you ask for a couple extra blankets it's fine to sleep on. The staff was very friendly and helpful in regards to giving directions and recommendations of places to go.
Couldn't fault the actual room at all. Furniture looked new and modern, cable TV even had some English channels. Huge fridge and air con was an absolute blessing in the heat. Bed was a bit hard and could have done with another pillow but its no big deal. We had a balcony which was great for drying clothes although we didn't have many places to hang them, balcony sliding door had a anti mosquito mesh panel thingy too which was good. The staff left us a fresh bottle of mineral water each by the door everyday which I found to be a really nice touch. There was also a kettle & coffee and also a safe in the wardrobe which is good.... Although we never figured out how to use it and there aren't instructions.
Staff wise.... There was one really nice friendly lady who helped us the first day and also gave us a map. The other members of staff I found to be less friendly and certainly less approachable. Indeed some didn't even look up from their phone when we walked past which made us feel like we couldn't disturb them and ask questions.
I can see why some people would rate the place as 'lifeless' .... There isn't a social area to speak of, only the small reception area and your own rooms. It suited us fine but wouldn't be great for backpackers.
Its a little far out from the center but you can flag down a taxi easy enough. Taxis with the red ligh
One of the oldest districts in Bangkok, Yaowarat operates as an authentic, living/working Chinatown. Offering a high concentration of gold and pawn shops, the main thoroughfare of Yaowarat Road is also the place to tempt the palate with a variety of Chinese delicacies. Sampeng Lane is renowned for textiles, and the Thieves Market is antique heaven.
