FX Hotel Metrolink Makkasan
Ranked #229 of 883 Hotels in Bangkok
Reviewed 30 July 2013

We booked this hotel as it was only 20 minutes on the rail link to the airport. The hotel is right next to Petchuburi & Makkasan Station and only 5 minutes on BTS from Sukhumvit where you can find lots of bars and restaurants making it a very convenient location.

There didn't seem to be much happening near the hotel but that wasn't a problem as you could find as much nightlife as you wanted a 5 minute / 16 THB BTS ride away. There was also a 7/11 supermarket just around the corner.

Our room was very comfortable and clean and the reception staff were very pleasant and helpful.

The breakfast was more Thai style than Western although there were coco-pop cereal and plenty of bread for toast. There was also a nice selection of fresh fruit. There were scrambled egg and frankfurters but it looked over-heated and unpleasant. I asked for a fried egg and the waitress returned with 2 freshly cooked eggs, done to perfection, so they are happy to respond to special requests.

There was a Jacuzzi on the roof top which was pleasant but unfortunately some of the jets were out of order, it could really do with some maintenance. There are also towels for users but they seem to keep them hidden away in one of the lockers.

All in all a very comfortable stay at this hotel, would definitely use them again.

The best thing about this hotel is definitely it's close proximity to Pethaburi MRT and Makassan rail link. The location makes it very easy to get to all the shops and restaurants in Sukhumvit and getting to and from the airport is a breeze.

The hotel itself is nice enough, clean and comfortable rooms, very nice staff and a functional restaurant. Internet is pretty fast, good choices on the Tv and a comfortable bed... All you need in a bangkok hotel really!

The only thing I really thought could be improved was the breakfast, nice food but a very limited choice which was the same everyday!

But lovely staff and good location mean I would stay here again.

We needed to be in this part of the city for a couple of nights and the location was thus ideal.

The hotel is about 5 mins walk from the airport link and steps away from the Phetchaburi MRT station. Its immediate surroundings are not prepossessing, but the hotel itself is clean and modern. The rooms are small, but functional as is the en suite shower room; the rooms were extremely clean.

Breakfast was fine, and typical of a mid range Thai hotel. Food is served throughout the day and evening, but the choice is limited and, given the lack of choice locally, a ride one stop on the MRT to Sukhumvit will open up a wide range of eateries and entertainment options.

Special mention must be made of the staff who were unfailingly friendly and helpful - uncommon in Bangkok.

Next time we are visiting Bangkok, we'll definitely stay again.

The hotel is nice, clean and the hotel staff are friendly. The stations of makkasan (airport link) and phetchaburi (MRT) are handy for getting around the city. However the hotel has no 7-eleven near by and the hotel charge has charges on things you wouldn't expect (using the laundry bag to put dirty clothes in while you stay there will cost you 250THB and your not even getting them laundered!)
It's a good choice if you are planning on not popping back to the hotel in the day time or having much of a night life.

Excellent quiet location, a short few walking steps from Suvarnabhumi Airport express train station, and few steps as well from the subway station, with only a short subway ride to Siam shopping area.
I felt secured with the 24 hour reception and elevator only be room key operation. Room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable, internet worked well, breakfast was adequate, they had english satelite channels, and the complementary drinking water was nice.
Very friendly staff, I was allowed a late check out, and when I arrived from Phuket on my way to catch my flight back home, they allowers me to store my suitcase although I was not checking in, thank you.

The location is very convenient. Located right by both the metro and the airport sky train, the hotel is clean and nice enough but the staff wasn't overly friendly. I would stay here again solely because of the convenience to the airport.

The Unico Premier MetroLink hotel is located off a little side street directly adjacent to Phetchaburi MRT Station, accessible with a walk of approximately 3 minutes. One station north on the MRT (Rama 9) is home to 2 good shopping centres: Fortune Town, which is great for electronics, camera and computer accessories, and Robinson Department Store, which is a really new and glitzy 7-stories-high shopping centre! One station south on the MRT (Sukhumvit Station) is home to the Central Silom Department store and Terminal 21, another brand new shopping centre with a fantastic local food court that looks upscale, but still extremely affordable by Western standards. The hotel is also approximately 15 minutes away from Pratunam fashion district and the Siam shopping complexes by taxi.

The hotel itself is a very standard 3-star business hotel. The rooms are clean and tidy for the most part, but they aren't glamorous or glitzy by any means. (see photo) Security hasn't been a concern for me: there is a safety deposit box inside the room, and the hotel elevator must be activated using a hotel room key card. The hotel staffs speak good English, they are helpful and friendly as long as you approach them in a decent manner! =) The breakfast is decent but nothing fancy: expect scrambled eggs, bacon or sausages, porridge, apple juice, limited varieties of pastries and fresh fruits.

This hotel can be easily accessed on the Airport Link Train from Suvarnabuhmi Airport, get off at Makkasan Station and walk for 5 minutes. If you are coming from the old Don Muang Airport, take the public BMTA "Airport Bus" A1 (can be located right outside the arrival area, ask for "A1" if you can't find it) which will take you to Mo Chit BTS / Chatuchak Park MRT within half an hour, transfer to the MRT destined for "Hua Lumphong", ride for 8 stations and get off at "Phetchaburi" Station!

Considering I paid roughly $45 USD per night, I would recommend this hotel and will personally return to stay again. It is a very nice budget 3-star hotel, and the location of the hotel is definitely a very attractive selling point!
