My overall experience at TK Palace was underwhelming. First, it took me a long time to get here from the airport. The hotel is close to the old airport (Don Muang), but most international and domestic flights are in Subharnabhumi Aiport further south. It's the Chaeng Wattana area of north Bangkok. It is close to the new government complex, so if you have business with government agencies such as tourism or ICT, you might the location convenient. But if you're a first time visitor to Bangkok, this place will be very far from most of the sites downtown, and there are no BTS or subway station servicing the area. But since you are far from the tourist areas, you will have a more authentic suburban Thai experience. There are a Big C and Tesco Lotus supermarkets 10-15 minutes walk on the other side of the highway, if you want to do some groceries or eat out.
The hotel itself is a bit dated, and hard to get to. Taxis won't usually know the place, so bring a map. Lobby is pleasant enough, as is the reception staff, but not too helpful. English is limited, as I suspect they don't get too many foreigners. The room I got was on the old wing. I was greeted with a musky smell, dark red carpeting and Asian 80s-style furnishings. The size of the room was large, but unfortunately, the window faced a firewall, so I almost got no sunlight. TV had limited English channels. Hot water was not working in the shower. There was leftover cigarette smoke, and the room was not too clean. The breakfast had a limited selection, which did not vary much during the 4 days I was there. Surprisingly for Thailand, the food was not good. The restaurant staff seemed uninterested in providing good service, and were not smiling.
I was here for a meeting, but nevertheless, the overall experience left me disappointed. You would stay here only if you want quick access to the Don Muang airport or have business with the government agencies in the area. This is definitely not a place for holidaymakers.
