“good price, good value, huge room.”
Reviewed 26 November 2012

We spent three nights here and were pleased with what we got for our money. You are un the heart of backpacker Bangkok so it is certainly not a glitzy area, rather it is bustling, noisy and fun.

The room was in fact like a studio apartment, with a living room, separate bathroom and bedroom. The kitchen area had a microwave cooker and fridge. The air conditioning worked well but was noisy. The room was a little shabby but fine for the price. The hotel pool was great and the small shop at reception very useful.

Room Tip: Ask to be away from the street.

The hotel was really good and comfortable. The rooms themselves are well laid out with a good bed and excellent bathroom. We stayed on the 5th floor and had brilliant views over the local Wat. The pool was very welcoming especially with the heat in Bangkok. The staff were very helpful and wifi was available throughout the communual area for free. We only stayed one night unfortunately but we had a late flight on the second day and were able to use the showers etc at the hotel. The only problem with the hotel was that it was a little difficult to find initially but one we learnt where it was then it was very well located to the touristy areas.

Room Tip: 5th floor on the b side have good views over the Wat.

Beautiful hotel.The service is very social and very helpful.When we arrived the first day at this hotel, they gave us instructions not to drive with any vehicle because there are fraudsters.They gave us a free map for easily find desired locations.This hotel is located 20 minutes to Koah San road.The pool is excellent.In each room there is a device for making coffee or тea.The only thing I do not like is that it is located in a very poor neighborhood.

Room Tip: It is located in a very poor neighborhood.

Lovely hotel.

Spotlessly clean rooms, free wifi in reception, very helpful staff.

A little of the beaten track, but only a 15 / 20 minute walk to Ko San Rd - which is a very good thing, you get all the benefits of being close to the nightlife without being kept awake by it!

Reception very helpfully provide directions in Thai from Ko San Rd to the hotel - take them with you - saves the hassle of trying to get home later.

Very close to the Standing buddah.

Small restaurant but it seemed to have a good selection of food, we only sampled breakfast and as we were terribly hungover we barly managed to eat toast!

There is free internet in the reception area - this closes at 10pm though.

Hotel as an onsite laundry service, however, if you walk round the corner you will find the same service for about half the price.

AC = fantastic - and didn't work out that much dearer.

Would definately reccommend

Room Tip: Go for AC room, lifts are small and hot so go for a low room - security is really good so no need to...

Very clean, comfortable hotel with security and a lovely pool. On a funky side street (print the directions in Thai from the web site for the taxi driver because no one knows where it is) one block from Standing Buddha and a 15 minute walk to Khao San Street. A short walk to Chao Phraya Express (boat taxi - less than 10 minute ride to Grand Palace and Reclining Buddha; a few more stops to China Town).
Very pleasant staff. Breakfast not included but they do offer breakfast for a fee. WiFi was a little spotty but free.
The pool is beautiful and a welcome cooling off point. It is primarily shaded and so was cool even in the hot season. A great way to cool off after a long, hot day of being tourists!

If you prefer to stay in an authentic Thai area of Bangkok, the U-Place is definitely the place to be! The hotel is very new and perfectly located like a 20-minute walk from Kao San Road. Even though you are near where everything happens, there are hardly any tourists around in this area and the hotel is a very quiet, no noise at night so we had a great sleep.

The hotel staff was super friendly and they help out the best they can, especially if you need a taxi etc., just outstanding! When you check in, they hand you over some advice on how to get by as a tourist in Bangkok (dos and don'ts) which was extremely helpful!

All in all, the U-Place is a great hotel perfectly located in a quiet Thai area with awesome staff. We will definitely stay at the U-Place again if we ever go back to Bangkok.
