“Loved it”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

My fiancee and I stayed at the Ibis for 3 nights. We loved it. It was clean, the staff were friendly, the design was nice, the pool and outside view were wonderful, it's a good location. It's got everything you need in a hotel, nothing more, nothing less. I see that as making a great value.

It's not in walking distance to much in Bangkok, but I found that of most places. You can walk to the other side of the river where you can take the water taxi or subway, and metered taxis to most anywhere in Bangkok are less than $2.

There are a couple of nice restaurants within walking distance, both fancy and casual. And the hotel breakfast was pretty good too.

Room Tip: We had a river view room. I thought it was worth it.

This is our kids favourite of our 5 week trip. Good family rooms, great pool located on the riverside and best of all, cheap (we paid about 45AUD per night in peak season!). It is located a little "out" of the main areas of Bangkok but it really isn't a big deal. You have access to cheap ferry crossing, and a tuk-tuk leaves every half hour to the closest skytrain station (it is also an easy 10 minute walk). Breakfast is ok, room service was fine however we ate mostly from the street outside - and thoroughly recommend the pad thai, soups, bakery and the thai iced tea from all of the stalls there. Eveything you need is on the strip outside the hotel (laundry, massage, 7/11, street food) - and it doesn't feel like you are in a super touristy area either. We found it easy to get around. My only wish is that you could catch a ferry from the hotel, you need to walk about 5-10min. Things to be aware of: Taxis apparently don't like to take you back there at night - we could not get a meter taxi a number of times to get back to the hotel and we refused to pay 600bht (!!) from sukhumvit so ended up catching a sky train at 10pm ish and then walked back to hotel from train station (very safe). Hotel is very helpful with organising taxis and gave us recommendations for eating out as well (ignore the taxis that sit outside the perimeter of the hotel). Overall it was well worth it for the money, but I couldn't help feeling that I was a bit out of the action (for shopping especially), so when we returned a couple of weeks later we stayed in Siam. I do recommend the Ibis for families on a budget. I'd consider staying there again.

Room Tip: Get a higher floor - and families choose the family room with the double bed and bunks - great value...

Budget hotel , great value for money, no frills , what you see is what you get , its a 2star hotel for 2star prices but worth to try.
Positive things ,
the price, the locations along the river, nice to have breakfast outside with riverview, hotel is relativly new, clean , pool with many sunbeds, vouchers for internet at reception for free. Shuttle service to skytrain, or 10walk, or walk to riverside to take little ferry 3,5bath pp to other side, taksin skytrain.
Negative things,
Don/t expect high service level, it/s a budget hotel, rooms can be noisy due to thin walls and loud neighbors, breakfast not too expensive enough choice but can be chaotic as staff has no clue what they are doing, are moody, slow service (or better, no service ..)
Staff very young, unproffessional could do with extra training english and hospitality.
Lunch , kind of tapas choice menu, not too expensive , but again very very slow service at restaurant (outside with riverview)
Cleaning of rooms , below standart ...needs to improve.

But once more , great value for money, quiet location in a big city, i would go back !
