Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The hotel is located in the heart of old part of Bangkok, very close to Kao San Road (but far enough to stay away from all the loud noises) which makes it a perfect location to explore Grand Palace and other temples which are located in very close area. There's also 7/11 on the street and one of the best thai street kitchen we've tried is just in a building next to hotel. Hotel on it's own seems to be quiet new but unfortunately very dirty! There was loads of dust, dirt and even spiderwebs in the room! Even though it was cleaned every day of our stay it still wasn't clean properly! The nice thing is that you can get yourself a free tea and coffee anytime you want as it's available for everyone in the lobby.

I stayed 6 different hotels in thailand, some more expensive than this and some cheaper. But none of that places made me itch like this place, even after i changed my room. I suppose it’s because of its poor cleaning. Towels are worn out, mattress has a hole, cockroach on corridor and moth on pillow. So if you don’t mind all these, go for it. The picture of room looks all nice and clean, when you get there it’s all wrong and disappointing. Stay at swana bangkok hotel was totally a nightmare and biggest disappointment.

The hotel is nice with good location . I stayed here for couple of time and happy mostly but just for tonight when I met one receptionist , Her name is “Aoy”( I met her before and she wasnt so friendly from the first time either but this time is worse!!). I booked a room for a friend and at front desk , she said she need my Id card cos i am the one who booked the room, so I told her I havent brought it with me , Can i give her at check out time? But she said nothing , all the time her face is so moody and unfriendly , finally i asked why she behaved like this and she just said (without looking at me) that I am just like this!!! so i said this is your work and hotel work is about service!!I told her she should have smile a but to make guest feel good but she said i just can be like this!!! Omg i told her I ve been so many hotels but never seen any staff like you! And she shouted that she doesnt care how luxury hotel I was before!!! Cant believe that i would experience this kind of hotelier!! She should not be there unless the owner see something good in her which i think guests like us will never experience it!!! My friend asked me not taking her picture unless she do it again!!!

Perfect choice for staying at Bangkok. Hotel is clean and good located. Close to the historical part of the city and popular Khao San Road. It takes you few minutes to get there, but the street is away from noisy city parts.

We booked the deluxe room – it was large and clean with a daily service that includes extra toiletries and fresh bottles of cold water. The shower temperature runs either boiling hot or too cold – there’s no happy medium. No hairdryer. Location-wise, there’s not a lot in the hotel’s immediate vicinity but it’s only a short walk (ten minutes or so) to Khao San Road, restaurants, bars and markets. It’s about an hour from the airport and the trip costs around 500-600 baht in an Uber. Wifi works, but you need to log in each time, and need several different codes for different devices, which can get annoying. The hotel also has a lock-up storage facility if you need to leave your luggage, for those who have flights after check-out. Staff members aren’t overly helpful, often seemed bored, but in my experience that’s nothing out of the ordinary for Thailand. **Other reviews mention there being no elevator – one has definitely been installed since

The hotel is just a short walk away from Khao San road, and you don't hear any outside noise, only noise from your fellow hotel visitors. Rooms get cleaned everyday, when you go out of the hotel and comeback, rooms are cleaned.\ Staff were helpful and carried our luggage to the top floor when we arrived at midnight.

It's away from all the noisey areas but within walking distance. Good value for the money it cost, but there are better hotels for the same amount. So it might be worth looking around. But on the whole for what we paid we can't grumble.

Very nice and cosy hotel. Good location, short walk ( 10 - 15 mins ) from busy life of rambuti or kaoh san but far enough to have a peacful night. Rooms basic but with everything you might need. In the reception complimentary tosts with butter and/or jam and coffee.

What a surprise to walk in from the street into what you think is a budget hotel because of the good price and the enter a well-decorated, tranquil and neat hotel with high standards. Swana is well situated in the older city within walking distance from Banglamphu Market and the must-see Khao San Road night market. We took two AC rooms, one for the kids and one for us. Breakfast is just a toast and jam but there is a place with good coffee and breakfast around the corner.
