A good place for budget traveler and yet still requires a little more comfort than a backpackers' place. For a place that's just a couple of years old, Room doesn't look like it has been well taken care. Location is a 5-minute walk away from the BTS.

the best part is its location all the shopping malls(MBK, Pratumwan market, bobay market, platinum, and siam shopping centter, and other popular malls) are in walking distance, just 3-10 mins by taxi. breakfast is awesome but very crowded in the morning from 7-9... staffs are very friendly but they pretend not to hear you when they are busy... specially in dinner time.. room service is good and the foods are delicious with reasonable price. we stayed here for 3 nights and i must say it was up to the mark.

Clean room and good location are all i can say. just 10 minutes away from shopping center, 5 minutes from BTS ratchadevi. But beware of certain Tuk Tuk drivers that stay in front of the hotel lobby...they offered cheap transport but will take you to various tailors etc pressuring u to buy their goods.

I thought the service was fine here. We used Agoda and booked ahead, no problem 30 bucks for a super modern, albeit spartan room. It was clean and simple. The bed was firm, but the AC worked very well which was great in Bangkok.
We had our train tickets dropped there several days before we arrived, no problem the staff and front desk had them ready for our check in. The check in was well organized and very fast, which is needed as this place see's 100 or more guests every day. The breakfast was huge with big variety, but the space is kind of small for all the guests that stay here, so I could see that as being a problem if you come down at the wrong time of day.

I think the location is fine. Bangkok is huge. What do you want to do and see? You should know this before you book a room. Don't slam a hotel because the location isn't what you expected. This is the modern world, there are maps on the inter webs, so use them.
If you want the SkyTrain is a five minute walk down the street and you can get most anywhere in the AC comfort of the trains. There is also great street food very close to the hotel and many Thai people enjoying it, so we loved that it was less touristy. Good massage at either side of the hotel street.

Room Tip: Rooms away from Main Street are a bit quieter, but it is Bangkok. Turn on your AC and add some ear plugs and you will sleep like baby here.

This hotel is conveniently located along Petchburi Road. It is 15 min walk to Phaya Thai Airport Rail Link station, 5 min walk to Ratchathewi BTS, 15 min walk to Pratunam Market, Plantinum Mall and MBK. It is so conveniently located that we seldom used the taxi to move around for this trip. There are also convenient store (7-11), food paddlers, eateries and massage parlours within a stone's throw from the hotel.

The room is clean and big and comes with all useful amenities like fridge, kettle, hair dryer, safe etc. The 32" LED TV is a bonus although there isn't many tv channels to choose from.

The hotel staff, while not overly friendly, is able to meet all our requests. We arrived early and initially were told that the room was not ready. After a fewcouple of phone calls and and arrangement, she managed to get us the room. We were so happy as we can freshened up after a flight.

The morning buffet breakfast spread was a presant surprise. There were fried rice, fried noodle, fried bee hoon or rice noodle, dim dum, egg, sausagges, soup, bread, juices, coffee/tea etc. Taste is passable but at least there were many choices to choose from.

Nothing is perfect, of course. First and foremost, the aircon is a bit weak in room. Not sure if this is a problem only in our room. But it is not too much of a bother for us. Secondly, the wifi signal is weak. Web surfing is still possible but at a slow speed. Finally, the cafe does not seem to be able to handle large breakfast crowd in the morning. Tables were slow to be cleared and food were slow to be replenished. You may even have a problem looking for a table if you arrive during peak hours from 8-9 am.

Will we stay in Bangkok City Hotel again? It will be a resounding YES. If you can look beyond some of the small inconveniences, this is defintely a good budget hotel to stay in, especially if the price remains at the current rates.
