This hotel is located 10 minutes walking form the Grand Palace. Staff is rather uninterested in guests and will not provide you with any extra information except for room number and price unless you ask. In case you ask them to call you a taxi, they won’t, but someone will come out with you and stop one on the street. The swimming pool is closed, but they offer free transfer to another hotel located 5 minutes away (we did not go). Lobby looks nice and spacious, room is well maintained; however our first impression was disaster – when we entered the room it smelled so moist and moldy. We had to open the balcony door for a while and use A/C at the high speed, but it did get better..or we simply got used to it overnight. The room was clean and comfortable, it had a balcony, free safe in the closet and also minibar. Hairdryer was available in the rom. It is noisy at night as other reviews say, but if you close the balcony door, it’s not a big deal unless you are a really weak sleeper. The hotel restaurant has a river view and good food, I recommend it. Be very careful in this area!! Bangkok is a city full of scams, I recommend you read about the common scams online before you go, after that you will realize that 90% of the people you speak to are trying to cheat you. Don’t go to places they recommend, they recommend you to go to their friends businesses and rip you off. If anyone tells you the Grand Palace is closed, stay away from him and go to the Palace, you will see its open. Tuk tuks are a cheat, catch “tax-meter” taxis and ask them to turn the meter on, it should start at 35 THB – taxi is very cheap if you follow this rule, otherwise you not only pay a lot, but you can get in serious troubles you will regret. Good luck!
