I travel a lot and have experienced a lot of different levels of hotels but this is one I will definitely not return to. The only thing it has going for it is the price.
Upon arrival the 2 guys from the reception watched me carry my luggage through the rain and up the stairs to the entrance door. No assistance offered at all. Upon check-in I realized they do not speak and English which made the whole process quite long and unpleasant. The Royal Express does not have an elevator so when I was given the choice of high floor or low floor I opted for the low floor as I was heavy on luggage. This was a mistake however. Because low floor mean ground floor and ground floor means 10 meters behind reception. So all night I was exposed to the chattering of hotel staff and arriving guests and of course also to any phone calls and music playing to keep the night staff awake. The room itself is tiny, consisting almost of only the bed and a bathroom. The aircon is located to blow directly down onto your head while you are sleeping...if you can sleep throught the receptional noises and the noise of the aircon that is. There was rainfall during my stay in Bangkok this time which also lead to a leaking of the bathroom ceiling. So while sitting on toilet I had to deal with rain water dropping down on me. I actually left this place after one night even though I had paid for 2 nights in advance.
