“Value for Money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

This is large hotel, nearly 20 floors, it is new , clean and cheap. Good breakfast buffet, hot food , cold food , English breakfast , drinks all inclusive.

Overall happy but average neighborhood. close to MTR and shopping centers.

Room Tip: Book rooms though agoda you get better discounts. Ask for room closer to 5A easy access to swimming...

Always stay here whenever I am in Bangkok, location is the first key as from Don Mueang Airport, take the A1 bus until Mochit BTS then take the train to Ratchathevee, exit 3, walk and turn left then proceed with a slow walk pass Samran Place and it is back again to my favourite stay.. been staying here since 2010, check -in is a breeze, Khun Joe at reservations is always there to assist you, rooms on the 17th and 18th floor are for smokers so we are at peace without getting dirty looks from others. Spacious room overlooking the busy Phetchbhuri Road, get a room with even ending numbers and you are up there, watching the incredible sights all around. Breakfast starts at 0700 am but for me, avoid the eat-as-much brigade by arriving early or that time around 0900 hrs until 1000 a.m whent the tour groups have left for their outing. The lady cook Khun Alesha is a Muslim from Bang Krue, I love the chocolate drink from the expresso machine and the freshly oven hot croissants are plentiful to go with your egg over easy. The scene at the dining room is like that because of certain guests that we all know but hey, just take the coffee mug in your room, collect your juice and chocolate drink, a few croissants and take the elevator back to your room. The fried rice, pasta and fried mee hoon are nice but the chillies are piping hot.. I would also take the exit to Soi 7 near Masjid Darul Aman and eat at the khao man gai toom/thot which is ready by 0630 am until 0900 a.m for breakfast without the rush as this is local Muslim food, there is also barbecuec beef to go with the chicken rice, after that, go back to the Bangkok City Hotel lobby for coffee and fruits. There are 3 working elevators and Chan Family Travel is just opposite.. try the tour packages.. the room is simple with a kettle, hair- drier and safe.. wifi needs to be log in regularily and limited channels on the telly, which hopefully will be upgraded to 60 channels [!] in the near future. From October 2013, the rates will increase to another 100 baht so it should be the fixed rate period. If you book through the hotel website, they will re-direct you to The Bangkok City Suite or Wattana Mansion in cases when The Bangkok City is fully booked. I always prefer this place as being very very convenient to eat out as a Muslim with Soi 7 and Soi 5 across the hotel and for an early flight to Don Mueng from say 0400 am until 0700 am, take the taxis across the street, just where the people wait for the buses, fare should be 150 bht and 15 minutes as I have done this a few times. Highly recommended but please book ahead, 2013 is the start of the tour group boom and this is the hotel for the tour operators.

Room Tip: The higher floors on the 17 or 18th floors are meant for smokers.. the view is nice and quiet,too.

I booked 3 family rooms direct from their website.
I asked for high floor but didn’t expect that we’ll get rooms in the highest floor (20th floor). :)
The family room was comfortable for us.
Their dining area was not big so it’s better to come earlier for breakfast.
This hotel was close to Ratchathewi BTS Station so it's easy to going around the city. 7-11 located near the BTS station.
And for moslem, there’s mosque & halal food restaurant nearby the hotel.

Stayed here from 17 -21 August 2013. People at reception were efficient and helpful. Bedroom is spacious and clean, with modern fittings. Bathroom had a corner tub with a handheld shower - no shower door/ curtain. There was a bit of mildew and bathtub was not as clean as it should have been. The hot water was not steaming hot. Breakfast is a bit on the sad side. No pork served here - big bonus for me. Breakfast room is very small. So go as early as possible. Located close to sky train and there is 7/11 a few steps away. There is a tour operator in the hotel as well. I booked the floating market and evening river cruise tours with him. Overall, service was good. Will definitely stay here again.

We went in a group of 7 relatives and enjoyed one of the best hotels in BKK in 5 days. More than we expected for a highly reasonable hotel with nice staff, trustworthy services and convenient location.

Room Tip: Should book the rooms with windows

This Hotel is located in a strategic location. Many of the foods sold in the surrounding, close to the mini market, close to where a massage when you feel tired and want to do massage. Not too far from the train station. Easy to reach traditional markets like Pratunam and also Siam area.

Room Tip: Higher floor better if you don't like noisy.
