I booked this hotel based on previous Tripadvisor reviews which said it was a "basic 5 star" hotel. Obviously that reviewer has never stayed in a 5 star hotel in Bangkok because the Mirth Sathorn definitely is NOT 5 stars but rather 3 stars, at most! Others said it was "Thai" style which is not the case. Thais do not like clunky 4-poster beds that take up most of the room and are cloaked in muslin curtains that collect dusk. Nor do they favor ostentatious decorations which abound in this hotel. The hotel name card misleadingly refers to the Mirth Sathorn as a place for "elegant living." It was anything but elegant.
Upon check-in, we were directed to Room 301 which had an overwhelming musty smell and poorly operating air conditioner. Upon request, we were transferred to the room next door (302) which had a better air conditioner. The room was suppose to accommodate 2 persons but had only 1 night stand and 1 reading lamp. The bathroom lacked a soap tray and had a rainfall-type shower head that worked poorly.
The management is very stingy with keys. We were provided only 1 electronic key (for double occupancy) and were told to return the key to the front desk each time we left the room. The air conditioner automatically turned off when the key was taken out of the slot. When we returned to the room, it was unbearably hot and took time to cool down which was uncomfortable as one of us suffers from asthma.
We paid $80 per night without breakfast and will not stay there again as it is not good value for the money. There are plenty other 4-Star and 5-Star hotels in the vicinity where you can find better value.
