“Old, worn out”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

Pretty disappointed in general as I paid a lot to book a room for a night's stay. This hotel looks like its been around for a while. The furniture and floor looks worn out. Wallpapers look musty and the room smells funny. Not to mention the floor feels a little bit sticky and a dodgy looking walkway to the room.

Really old TV set, poor workmanship on installation of air-con and shower units. It turns me off to see bad English on the signages really.

I really wanted to spend my last night in Bangkok closer to the city center and was hoping that it will give a good night's rest but could hardly sleep well. We checked out first thing after waking up, and decided to skip the complimentary breakfast that everyone here says is average.

My sisters ,father and my niece stayed in the Golden House Hotel during their visit to Bangkok, on May 2013.Location was superb, few minutes away from the Chidlom BTS.The hotel is quite small, but acceptably clean , not as nice as their pictures in Agoda,but worthed for the money we paid.Breakfast was ok, altough food choices were limited.Our room was small ,but comfortable.Staffs can be more helpful ,and can offer better assistance to the guests.As we spend most of the day outside, this should be fine for us, we recommend this hotel for its value for money and its superb location.

Were there with a group of 8 for 4 rooms & 4 nights. Unfortunately, there are some miscommunication internally which resulted in 3 rooms available. 2 of us have to stay at another location for 1 night at 5 min taxi ride away provided by the hotel.

Rooms are generally clean with not much complains with the low price. Aircon is cold, water heater is working perfectly for a nice hot bath. However, Wifi is slow with some rooms unable to receive any signals. No problem with wifi on ground level.

Travellers chatting, kids running in the room corridor can be clearly heard while we are asleep. There are also renovations going on adjacent the hotel. Noise be heard clearly with all the windows all closed.

Do not expect yourself to sleep lavishly in the room, only good for overnight accomodation.

Did not try the morning breakfast though.

I reserved from Agoda.com and paid by PalPal. I stayed in Double bedroom for 2 nights. I choose to trek here because adjacent hotels(iBis Siam, Asia, Intercont, Grand Hyatt, Novotel,Siam kempinski, Centara Grand @ Central world) were full and I had an important meeting early at Centara Grand)

The cleanlinness of bed and bathroom are good but the room has old design. The room doesnt have space for big luggage, wheelchair, children. I think the room space is equal to iBis Hotel(Siam). In bathroom, I found a shower, water heater, flush toilet, soap, shampoo, tissue paper, water sink. The room also contains TV, small fridge, minibar, free coffee and tea.

The elevator is fit for 3-4 people and used to transfer the garbage in the afternoon. The receptionist has fair in English and seem to be a kind-person. The breakfast has only 2 pieces of bread, one kind of eggs--for one person and water/fruit juice/coffee/tea.

You can leave your luggages in the room behind the lobby(in the kitchen). Beware the flume of vegetable oil stick on your luggage materials. The location is good for shopping style and sky train but not for taxi in the rush hour and traffic jam. Dont forget to tell a chauffeur to turn on a meter price -- start at 35฿. Taking short straight on Ploenchit rd. and turn left to get Expressway you can reach Suvanabhumi Intrnational Airport less than an hour.

I paid $140 for 3 nights so there isn't really much I can complain about.

-literally steps from the Chitlom BTS and 10-15 walk to Siam BTS. good location, check!
-I had absolutely no problems with wifi though my wife claims she did. Available wifi, check!
-room was clean, sheets were clean, hot water available, airconditioning. Decent accommodations, check!

For the location at this price point, I sincerely doubt there is a better place. If there is one, I'm all ears. If there is one thing to complain about, reception was a bit useless when it came to asking anything about the area.

I'd go back here in a heartbeat.
