“Dream Budget Stay in Pratunam for Agile Tourists”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

This was my second stay in Ecotel after 2011. Not much have changed. The reception staff are rude as ever before. The whole lot except maybe a few are ignorant to the fact that they DO NOT speak or understand any standard form of English whatsoever. They keep mumbling few words and then starts to arrogantly chew the same words no matter how you may re-frame your query. The 2000 THB security deposit is a mandate. This hotel is not a smoker's paradise - you need to go out of hotel despite designated smoking areas in each and every floor. Room service is fantastic. You may like the mini-bar. Wi-fi is satisfactory. Breakfast buffet is sumptuous and lovely. Why you should choose this stay is location!! It's right oppposite Wattana-Wong Soi which takes you directly to Indra Plaza, Baiyoke Sky and adjoining Pratunam shopping places. Pantip IT mall is also few more added minutes of walk away. You need to walk at least 25 minutes to get to Chit Lom BTS station no matter how the hotel staff coax you to understand that it's the closest. True it connects you to all the major lines but the closest rail link to the hotel is Rathaprarop on Suvarnabhumi connecting line. It's a decent 7-8 minutes walk away but you need to change to BTS section in the next stop Phya Thai. Still better than Chit Lom! You need to ASK for your welcome drink unfortunately, which comes back in form of a coupon you need to present in the mentioned section who'll reluctantly provide it to you (that's almost a standard for all budget hotels across Thailand)! Remember, it's fantastic for its price only if you spend less time at your hotel and be on your feet exploring the area. 3 7/11 shops are within 6-7 minutes walk of the hotel which is fantastic for you. Give a royal ignore to the rudeness and demand you right and you'll fit right in! Caution: Touristy season can give you a headache as specially Indians throng to budget hotels through travel agents and Ecotel is a dream come true for many!

Room Tip: Rooms on the eastern side, i.e. choose room number from x20-x30 where x represents floor. Good choic...

Check -in staff was unfriendly.She asked for baht 2000 for deposit.When we asked her more abt it, she was very impatient and said everyone needs to pay, return upon check out.Smoke free hotel, hotel impose a fine of baht2000 if found smoking.The lobby mini mart sells water 3 times more expensive than the 7-eleven 3 mins walk from the hotel.No boiler in the room.Wifi goes on and off.Most of the time it's not working. Breakfast Buffet was horrible.No bread was available.We had to ask for replenishmants.The towels provided was old with frails,looks worn out and over used.Crashed out paper was found was found in the drawer.The temperature control for the aircon does not work,constantly at ard 20 degrees.The TV was stuck at a Hindi channel...we gave up and decided not to have it on.Vouchers for breakfast ,safe key and wifi password has to be retrieve from the hotel frontdesk.There is plenty of tuk tuk and taxi around the hotel.They will try and instigate you to go to a seafood restaurant call Somboon so they can get a cut from your bill.We wanted to go to a particular restaurant,but the cab sent us there,pretending. I will not stay there again.

I stayed at this hotel early September, the staff is very helpful and location is quite strategic. The atmosphere is quiet and fairly close to the shopping area. I definitely recommend this place and would go back again!

First look was impressive. Looks rich and royal. Hospitality was good. Food was good and so were the rooms. Main attraction was the location which is near to the shopping streets at a place which the world calls Shoppers Paradise.

We stayed in Ecotel Bangkok, from 2nd Sep to 7th Sept. It is a good budget hotel. The hotel has a wonderful location. The shopping areas of Pratunam and Indra Square is just on a stone throw distance. The airport line train Station is just 1 km down. There are so many food stalls and restaurants. Also a lot of options are there for Indian food. The area is a decent and suitable for family tours as well. Breakfast is fine, but not too huge. However, if you are want early check in or late check out please confirm the same with hotel in advance. Hotel give free wi-fi in the rooms. Receptions and bell desk people are cooperative. However, there is no gym or swimming pool.
Overall it was a good stay for me.

Room Tip: if you are want early check in or late check out please confirm the same with hotel in advance.
