Reviewed 22 November 2012

We had a great few days at The Lit The staff from reception to the doorman could not have been more helpful kind and polite The rooms were clean light and unusual Breakfast was plentiful with a selection to please all palates The food in the restaurant was lovely a good choice of European and Thai well presented and plentiful One drawback the proximity to the huge shopping mall the MBK this place is fatal you are liable to spend far too much and return home penniless
You must visit the Golden Palace during your visit We were amazed at the beauty that surrounded us it was breathtaking
We would recommend the Lit to all

The LIT Bangkok is the best I have ever stayed not only in Bangkok, but also worldwide! Greeted by hotel staff every time. Not expensive, Room is clean, design is special, hotel is quiet, breakfast choice not many but good enough, and can find money exchange with good rate nearby.

The things I don't like: 1) slipper is not a towel-like slipper, 2) there is only 1 hook in bathroom.

It was a pleasure staying in this hotel. Service good as usual in Thailand. Not too difficult to find. You are mostly by yourself, Pool area is not busy, neither spa nor the gym. Everything is in excellent condition and clean. The rooms are modern, with curtains dividing bedroom from bathtub. Toilet and shower are behind glassdoors so everything can be heard in the room...
Location- wise it is near many Shopping Centers and by the Sky Trains. To the City Center it will take around 20-30 mins depending on traffic. Not expensive though-100 baht.

You will have a good time for whichever purpose you will book the hotel. And in the Morning you can look forward to a wide Choice of Food at the breakfast Buffet!

Fantastic modern hotel. Only 5 minutes walk to famous shopping district in Pathumwan, including MBK centre and Siam Discovery. Skytrain access also only 5 minutes walk. Booked two rooms with two other single friends. I stayed in Different Degree room with king size bed and my two friends in Different Degree room with two single beds. If i had a complaint, it would be that the two single beds are in fact just one king size base with two single mattresses placed on top, so in fact my two friends were sleeping right next to each other!! That is why I believe hotel better suited for couples. I had few maintenace issues in my room, but they were fixed right away. You have free use of upto 110Baht from mini bar and tea and coffee are provided for free. Bathroom had rain shower head and also conventional spray head on a hose. It also had separate bath tub. Internet was free via Wifi or LAN. There was no joiner fee for bringing back a guest, Breakfast was a good selection and more could also be ordered using an order sheet you filled out and sent to the kitchen. Staff were super friendly and very helpful. Laundry was a little pricey but just walk outside and the same street has three laundry shops which do great job for 80% less in price! Gym was good compared to many other hotels.
I have been to other hotels in Pathumwan area and must say for a four and half hotel with its offerings, the price of stay is very good and I highly recommend.

We joined our Kiwi friends there this last week and were blown away by the stunning architecture of the hotel, pool and rooms. The staff were beyond welcoming and accomodating (and easy on the eye) and we felt VERY special. When I received my credit card statement I got another pleasant surprise at the low cost of meals etc. The Lit is extremely conveniently located for shopping and transport systems. It has conference facilities as well. Will definitely return.

Room Tip: we had the basic room which was outstanding

We had a group of 14 that stayed at the LIT for 5 nights pre-cruise. Everything was great. We advised them that we would not arrive until after midnight, and they were waiting for us.
The rooms were very modern. The only thing was that the bathroom had a curtain not a door.
I don't know if this is common in Asia, but American visitors are not used to this.
The hotel is in a good location, but is difficult for many cab drivers to find since it is in an alley.
Great price for room and breakfast. The wait staff at breakfast was very nice, but a little slow.
I would stay here again if I return to Bangkok.

We recently stayed here before going to see other parts of Thailand and it was great! The location is perfect for anyone wanting to see the big shopping centres (MBK, Siam Paragon and Central World) as they are within easy walking distance. The hotel itself has excellent rooms with fantastic sized bath, funky lighting, great beds and all the amenities you need. We had room service and the food was really good too. Despite being so close to one of the busiest areas of Bangkok, there was no street noise at all in our room.
Around the hotel the highlight would have to be the fitness centre which has new, clean equipment and the free bottled water is a very nice touch. We didn't go in the pool (or 'pooh' as the sign says) or the bar as we ran out of time but we hope to come back here in a couple of weeks and make sure we try them out!
We would highly recommend this hotel!
