This is a very nice hotel, cosy room with excellent front desk staffs.
Check in 24 Aug with my family.
We don't have to worried about food as there's a lot of street fare along the way.
Most of them speaks good English and they provide very useful information to getting around BKK.

Good job!

A nice simple hotel located just outside of the vibrant pratunam shopping stretch. Booked this from deal and Stayed there for 3 nights and quite a comfortable stay.

Thumbs up:
1. Free WiFi in the room which is great. Connection is great too.
2. Rooms are pretty small but clean
3. Beds are not too hard so it's comfy.
4. Hotel folks are very nice and polite. Upon check in, the manager at the counter very patiently explained how to get the various malls around the area as well as to the nearest bts by drawings on a map.
5. The airport transfer was scheduled for 4pm and the manager extended the check out to 4pm, giving us time for last min shopping, packing and freshening up before going to the airport
6. 7-11 is just round the corner, there's also a McDonald's, Starbucks, subway a short walking distance away on the way to bts. If you are into street food, there's plenty round the corner, also stalls selling chicken rice, satay and wanton noodles
7. For shopping wannabes, location is great as you can just walk back to the hotel after shopping at platinum mall and pratunam market. Plenty of night market stalls at the area too. You can even walk back from central world if you dun mind the longer walk. This is useful esp traffic is terrible at bkk and you will definitely get caught in the jam.


What's not so great:
1. It's a 8-10 mins walk to chidlom bts. Canbe quite tiring esp under the hot scorching weather
2. Room key is the 'real ' key, so make sure you turn the security knob when you are in the room else anyone can enter. You also have to leave the key with counter when you are out, or they wont do housekeeping, which is alright for me.
3. The electronic card to power up the aircon and lights are attached to the room key. So you have to 're-power up the aircon everytime you are back. Takes a while to cool down the room.
4. Though there are many tv channels but all in Thai...only two movie channels. So I end up watching shows on my tab.
5. Taxi drivers dun know this hotel even though i showed the hotel map in Thai, printed from their website. So if you are taking cab back to hotel, best to tell them you are going pratunam, stop around platinum mall and walk back. Depends on which direction you come from, you may pass by the hotel first before platinum...and you may then direct the driver to stop you at the hotel.
6. Have to jay walk to platinum mall, please be careful as traffic is bad.

Breakfast is simple fare to warm the stomach but good enough. Overall an ok stay for me. This is definitely a good choice who dun mind the walk and likes to shopping.

Room Tip: Choose rooms facing the river. Should be quieter. Mine was near the roads and the motorbikes, engine...

stayed here for 3 nights, got a twin room greeted by towels folded into elephants. reception checkin was quick, and presented me with a token of gift. the room doorsvare not electronic, still using a key but requires you to put back the key whenever you leave the hotel. simple breakfast set provided, feels like a local. its not near any bts, but can slowly walk to the shopping centres ard. many chicken rice stalls nearby.if you do not mind staying abit far from bts and loves shopping at platinum mall, this is an good option.

This is my first trip to Bangkok and stayed 2 night at Bangkok Venice Suite Hotel. For my first impression, the outlook are small building and I don't expect much since it is budget hotel. But they staff really impress me, they are very helpful, give us a lot of information regarding the nice restaurant, MRT station and pratunam & platinum shopping mall.

Even the room are small, but all the facility are good enough for us! We feel very comfortable stay 2 night at here! When I visit bangkok in future, this hotel will be my first choice!

I have been to 5 different hotels in Bangkok before and choose this hotel as it is still new. Though the distance to the nearby shopping malls such as Platinum Mall, Big C and Central World is still 15 minutes walk. The counter staff whom i was attended was able to speak very good English (she has stayed in Europe before for number of years), she is very helpful in explaining those places of interest. Room size is acceptable and the down side is that the wash basin is located outside the toilet. Also you have to manually locked the door with the key, unlike those hotels which you can simply just close the door and leave. Breakfast is just a warm up to your stomach (few slices of bread and ham, egg), but you can find street food not too far from the hotel, wanton noodles and chicken rice. Overall I had a pleasant stay in this hotel, will booked this hotel again.

Room Tip: choose one that is facing the river, e.g. room 506

This hotel is conveniently located near the shopping districts, in particular Platinum Fashion Mall (a wholesale market aka heaven for shoppoholics), which is about 5-8 mins walking distance away. Along the way to the malls and opposite the hotel, there are many roadside stalls selling reasonably priced food. There's a family mart and pharmacies across the road too, which is very useful when you need some medication urgently.

The hotel is also located near Chit Lom station of BTS Skytrain (10 mins walk away). If you are more adventurous, you can try taking buses from bus stop (5 mins walk away), or take the river taxi (pier is right behind the hotel), which is definitely cheaper alternatives to navigate around Bangkok.

The room is cosy, clean and filled with modern amenities. Hair dryer, electric kettle, fridge, and a safe are available for use. When we arrive, we are greeted with towels being folded into cute little elephants. The shower is strong and the hotel provides shampoo and shower gel. However, the basin is located outside the toilet, which is a bit weird, as I need to exit the toilet to use it.

A super big plus point for the hotel is its friendly staffs. Some of the staffs are eloquent in English and are really helpful. Right when we arrive, the staff explained to us the routes we could take to visit the shopping malls and the BTS Skytrain, and provided us with many maps to help our navigation. Subsequently, they provided suggestions for us where we could visit in Bangkok and taught us how to reach there by public transport. They even wrote a thai message for us to show taxi or tuk tuk drivers in case they did not know how to reach the hotel. On the last day, they even allowed us to extend our checkout time till our airport bus arrived. Really am super glad for their help and service they had rendered!!!

A little con of the venue is its limited choice of breakfast, which portion is a little small. They provided us with 3 choices for breakfast- American (toast, ham, sunny-side-up, sausage), continental (salad, toast), and Asian (porridge). So after the 3rd day, we are pretty sick of the breakfast. But as mentioned, along the way you could definitely find other choices for breakfast.

For me, I'm really satisfied with the hotel and would definitely recommend others to stay there! And it's cheap too!!

Room Tip: Choose one with the river view!

This hotel is good! I chose this hotel through deals. The receptionist knows how to speak english. She explained everything very clearly when we reach the hotel. (Explain the hotel routes to the shopping malls and many more) They also gave us souvenir. Its 5-7 mins walk to platinium mall. walk all the way straight, have to jaywalk, but please be careful of the traffic. MBK, SIAM and Central are all walking distance, 5-10mins walk. The hotel doesn't serve buffet. :( Their breakfast very small portion.
