Reviewed 10 May 2012

Thankfully we only stayed in this hotel for one night. There is no elevator, we got a room on the top 4th floor and thre was no a/con in the corridor, when we walked into the room it was like in being in the sauna. We put the a/c on but only half of it worked so it took ages to cool the room. On top of that it was very loud and we couldn't sleep all night, we couldn't turn it off for the night as it would be too hot in the room. Bathroom was so small with no shower curtain so everything was wet around once one's finished.Breakfast was OK, but nothing special, The only plus was the staff who were very pleasant. All in all we definitely would not stay in this place ever again. There are other much better places to stay in BKK and closer to places of interest. We would definitely recommend Queen Lotus in Asok, it's amazing.

We picked this hotel based on the good reviews on Trip Advisor. Even so, it still exceeded all expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed our 8-day stay there. Only possible fault I could imagine was staying in a 4th floor room and no elevator. While some may consider this a shortcoming -- we did not -- with all the fabulous food we enjoyed in Bangkok we needed the extra bit of exercise climbing the steps every day. The main thing that makes this hotel so special is the warm, friendly, and kind staff. Whether morning crew or night crew all were kind, friendly and helpful with anything and everything to make our stay more enjoyable. Another very positive aspect is that the rooms have so many nice amenities as standard, such as a hair dryer, a nice, easy-to-use safe in the room, large full-length mirrors, mini kitchen with refrigerator, microwave oven, fry pan, dishes, utensils and even pot scrubber and dishwashing liquid. Also, every day we were provided with free packets of coffee and creamer as well as two free bottles of mineral water (placed in the refrigerator). Someone went to great length to think of all the things the guest might need and then provided them in the room. And if there was anything we did need, such as extra coat hangers, these were promptly provided -- with a smile. Also, the location is near ideal, as others have already mentioned. Near the action of Sukhumvit, a short walk from Emporium, but on a quiet street one block away from the noise of Sukhumvit traffic. This place -- although not large nor luxurious -- provides warmer friendlier good service to guests than most expensive 5-star hotels costing 10-20 times as much. Next trip to Bangkok, we will not consider any other hotel.

This place is a small gem. The rooms are nice, clean, cosy and comfy. I stayed there for 5 nites with my wife and 6 months old boy. The staff are warm and hospitable. The Inn is a walking distance to the BTS station (Phrom Phong), Tops Supermarket, The Emporium Mall and 3 7-eleven stores. Breakfast is provided daily and the laundry rates are customer friendly (between THB5-THB15 per piece). We will be back at this place in December 2011.

This hotel has clean and spacious rooms which are fully serviced and equipped for cooking. The location is also great as it's close to a Tops Supermarket and both Emporium Mall and Phrom Phong BTS. The staff were nice but became annoying after staying for several weeks as they didn't address any of my requests (i.e. neighbor smoking every night while the hotel has a non-smoking policy, not fixing tv until bugging them every day, etc.).

If you're looking for a good deal for a few days/weeks, then this is the right hotel for you.

Was feeling a bit nervous about staying in Chinatown because of everything we were reading but so glad we came. Chinatown is great!!! Loads of people, food and shops and easy to get around. The Check Inn is in a perfect spot hidden away in an alley which makes it very quiet at night and just a short walk to the main street for action. The hotel staff are wonderfully helpful (they helped us with our phone, gave us advice on taxis/trains, etc. and always smiling and friendly). Our room is amazing--I still can't believe it is so affordable. It is spotless and beautifully decorated. It has everything we need and then some (slippers, microwave, kitchenette, safe, wifi, air con., etc.). I would highly recommend this place. It's a little surprise.
