Stayed In the secondary building without a lift which was fine for us. Impressed by large, comfortable room which had a sofa. The shower over the bath was badly designed as it leaked all over the bathroom in which there was no floor drain. Towels were changed daily which was unnecessary for our 4 night stay. Despite their own leaflets stating that breakfast was free, you had to pay extra for it at the time of booking and it wasn't that great ("fresh local fruit juice" was definitely from a carton). The staff were mostly unsmiling which was disappointing as the hotel website promised a friendly welcome and more personal service. For this price, I would also expect tea/coffee making facilities but none provided. However, the room was a good place to relax and the hotel was very near Ekkamai sky train so it was a comfortable, convenient place to stay.

I stayed at Bourbon Street while on business. And I would gladly stay here every time I go to Bangkok! Its an American hotel with a Thai heart! Douglas, the owner is there every day ensuring his guests are well looked after and is an absolute star! The rooms are very very comfortable - nothing posh - but comfortable nevertheless. And if you need something, the staff will help you with it.
The day starts with a hearty breakfast and as a tourist or traveller, gives you the flavours and aromas you are familiar with, helping you start the day on a right note. The overall ambience of the hotel is friendly and there is always a buzz about the place. The evenings are nearly packed and the food on offer is absolutely divine - good ol' american hearty food! The bar is well stocked and they have a fantastic selection of cocktails and beers. And everything is reasonable priced - just like the rest of Bangkok!
Bourbon Street is close to the skytrain station (literally a 7 min walk) and is located on the busy Soi 63 which is in walking distance from the 'happening' Thonglor! Plus there are plenty of 'street food' options (especially Soi 28) and other restaurants in close proximity!
So net net - a lovely place to camp while in Bangkok and last but not the least - Bourbon Street has the best Long Island Iced Tea in town! Without a doubt!

Room Tip: The 5th & 4th floor rooms are good as they are quieter. It can get quite noisy on the 6th floor as the 7th floor is for private hire and some of the parties can get raucous.

We booked here following a deal on a website. The location was great, very close to the BTS station, making the city quite accessible from a quiet location.
Food was nice albeit pricey, staff were quite friendly but the place lacked atmosphere. Security guards were really helpful in helping us get taxis and telling prices of how much tuk this, taxis etc should cost.

Rooms were nice, spacious and the bed was awesome!

Summary: Bourbon Street is best known for it's excellent American style restaurant that specializes in Cajun food and has a Mexican buffet on Wednesday's. The rooms themselves are very comfortable and provide American Sports coverage (rare for budget hotels in Thailand) but lack facilities, charm and ambiance. Conveniently located near the Ekkamai BTS (Skytrain) and near to the Bus Terminal it is an ideal stop over for those traveling to Northeast Thailand or for those simply homesick for some good American food and sports entertainment.

Detailed Commentary:

Positioning: This hotel seemed to target Americans or those interested in American food. A simple basic hotel but very clean and with comfortable beds.

Location 4/5:
The venue is situated just a few hundred meters down Soi 63 (Soi Ekkamai) off of the main drag of Sukummvit road; an easy walk to to the sky train and, across the sky train, the Ekammai Bus Terminal which services Bus journeys to North East Thailand. It is a busy high traffic location but there is not too much else in the immediate area (a shopping mall, food court and upmarket coffee shop). The Ekammai area itself it quite well known as a trendy night club area for younger partiers but you have to go a ways further in to find these venues.

Room Quality 3.5/5:
There are two parts to the hotel. The main part sits immediately above the restaurant. The other part sits in a separate area a two minute walk down the Soi, The main part has a lift. the other part does not; and thus is offered at significantly lower rates. The rooms cover the basics very well -- a comfortable soft mattress, A good working glass door shower, decent quiet air con and unblocked windows.

Ambiance 2/5:
Noise was largely not an issue as and the rooms were also quiet in that you could not hear your neighbors at night. Unfortunately, ambiance is this hotel's weak link. The overall feel of the room was : Comfortable, Bright, Clean but also Generic and Sterile. The restaurant has a lot of personality as did the foyers at each lift. However to enter a floor of hotel rooms from the lift you had to use a key to unlock the door to the floors which in turn were totally sterile. The whole set-up somehow reminded me of a hospital ward -- not a good thing in the hospitality sector.

Facilities and Amenities 3/5:
WIFI was free and problem free. There is no pool or fitness center nor any other type of facility. The TV programming was American oriented with ASN for sports (covering NFL, NHL, NCAA among other things) and had a choice of English language Movie and News Channels as well.

Approach to Service 3.5/5:
The service experience was neither poor nor great. The receptionist was patient enough to show me a few rooms even though it meant climbing some flights of stairs; and checking in and out was hassle free.

Usability 2/5:
Usability concerns details that may not matter to many people, particularly those that are only staying for a night or two. However, since design and usability are of interest to me, I like to include it anyway. Some hotels maximize space with very intelligent room design while others pay no attention to usability and guest convenience. Bourbon street was below average in this regard. The bathroom utilized restaurant style tissue dispenser that gave you your bathroom tissue one sheet at at time -- adding to the sterile vibe of the place. Presumably, this was to stop people from clogging the toilets with large wads of toilet paper, but I really hated it --- don't mess with my bathroom habits! Another issue was the LCD TV was bracketed into a corner and could not be adjusted -- the result being a poor viewing angle if lying down in bed, unless positioned far over to one side of the bed. Another factor is that in my room - a deluxe room -- there was something -- I am not sure what you would call it -- a large surface area that could be considered a divan or sun bed or something --- but it was positioned immediately below the the Bracketed TV and was thus useless to sit on or do anything with except place clothing on it. Not really useful as there was no sofa or two seater as is typically the case in superior or deluxe rooms.

Value for Money 3.5/5:
This is always subjective depending on what is important to most people. Overall I thought the hotel was a good value considering it's fairly low price point and level of comfort provided. If you don't mind staying in the annex and climbing up and down stairs the price points are a bargain. If you require atmosphere or amenities it cannot really deliver here unless you spend your waking hours in the restaurant.

Visited restaurant before. First time in this hotel on soi Ekkamai. Location is great with sky train very close by. Walking distance from eastern bus terminal. Very comfortable room with good tv channel selection.
The restaurant is super. Opens at 7 a.m. Great eggs Benedict. Must be one of the cheapest rates in Bangkok for a pint of Guinness. Best place to chill out and watch american sports. EPL is also on, though I don't find it interesting. When NHL is back in action I will spend many hours here.
