“Excellent Service”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

After a very bad experiences at the first 2 Hotels in Bangkok the Mini R was a very welcome change. We booked for 9 days.
The staff were welcoming and the two rooms clean and comfortable. Easy access to other parts of Bangkok by MRT or BTS.

I stayed at the Mini for 8 days while having dental work done at BIDC.
The hotel is right next door and I wasn't sure how much walking and traveling I was going to feel like doing.
The rooms are spacious, modern and clean. The price was good for what you get. Big comfi bed, air con. Cable TV , Breakfast inc. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location is OK but not in the heart of things. It's located mid way between 2 Metro stations, an easy 10 minute walk each way. There's a basic restaurant next door, and a good coffee hut right outside BIDC. Just around the corner is a local street with cafe's, bars and restaurants and laundromats. Not the most scenic part of BKK and lots of large, gaudy 'Gentlemens Clubs' in the area, but overall pretty good. There's a mall with a good supermarket right near the Thailand Cultural Center Metro station.

I will only stay at this hotel when I visit Bangkok again. The staff are very friendly and happy to help in any way and nothing was too much trouble for them. I felt like they treated me like royalty. I enjoyed coming back from an outing and being greeted with broad smiles and a happy 'hello'. I stayed in the mini s room, which was meant to be small but I found the room quite large, being by myself, with a king size bed, a mini bar, a fridge, a large LCD T.V, aircon and high speed broadband wifi. The room was very well maintained and very clean. The lighting in the room was, by choice, from ambient to brightly lit up. And I really loved the ambient blue light. The location was perfect as you're near various types of transport and easy access to anywhere in Bangkok you want to go.

As far as I can remember, I've stayed here more than 10 times. Normal bed in breakfast place. Price is decent. Location is very good on the main road. In between the Huay Kwang and Thailand Cultural Centre MRT line, both are at least a 500m walk.

Attractions include all the big and infamous massage parlours - Ceasars, Nataree, Emanuelle, Aliana, Poseidon. All in THAT area, so very accessible. Also conveniently located near the Huay Kwang night market and terrace so it's not such a dull neighbourhood. On the other side, there is the Big C and Robinson's mall. A little further down brings you to Esplanade Ratchadapisek.

Overall, rooms are clean, staff are friendly and price is cheap.

I hope they do some refurbishments though as age is catching up on the infrastructure.

We stayed twice at this little hotel - once for a week & then again for 3 nights.
Mak, the hotel manager, and Anna at reception, went out of their way to make out stay enjoyable.
Our standard twin bed room was large & bright & very clean. Our room was modern with fresh white sheets on large beds, plenty of cupboard space, good bathroom with shampoo etc, a desk & good TV reception. We chose American Breakfast which was quite adequate - juice, bacon, ham, egg toast & fruit - coffee/tea facilities & water are complimentary. It is not in the thick of Bangkok, but as it's situated between 2 MRT stations, it very easy to get around & taxies to most places is only 100/150 Bahts. Plenty of 7 Elevens & Department stores within walking distance.

My daughter and I were booked in here for 7 nights as we were attending the dental clinic next door. Unfortunately the service is very poor, they only person who speaks english sometimes is the receptionist.
House keeping is non existent, we watched plates outside a persons door for 2 days, our room was not made up each day...we had to ask...they forgot our breakfast 2 mornings in a row after that we didnt bother to even try and have breakfast, The Big American breakfast was very small and the bacon was the size of their smallest coin and the omelet was just that egg...nothing else in it, so the flavour was really bland.
Whilst sitting at my computer the fluro light just fell down in front of me hitting my laptop, and hanging by 2 wires, when a guy came to have a look the other fluro also fell down so now we had 2 hanging down by wires...nest day they sent 3 electricians( and I say this lightly) to fix the problem, whilst my daughter had just had 2 teeth removed and lying in bed she had 5 men in the bed room trying to screw in 4 screws to hold the lights up....so not funny!!
To each side of us are "Massage" places and NO not the feet ones...so alot of people coming and going.
I definitely would not recommend for travelers with children or someone who would like a relaxing stay..no pool...no internet if you don't have a laptop, and little tiny ants in everything, even your bed...

Visiting Bangkok International Dental Centre (BIDC) next door made this a convenient place to stay. It turned out to be much more than that. Helpful staff, clean well equipped rooms (I was upgraded to a large) with a very comfy bed, fridge and WiFi (free in all rooms) made this an enjoyable place to stay.

Anna on reception was great with tour advice as well as directions to the the local laundry service (there is none in house). MBT rail stations are close by as well as shopping malls (Robinson's and Carrefour; called Big C). You don't have to go far for anything.

A cafe (Maxi's) on the ground floor provides great coffee and a varied diet of Thai, Italian and pizza.

I'll definitely stay again.
