2 of us girls went for 6D5N in the start of December 2013, we booked the modern superior room. Was skeptical due to reviews. Searched via hotelclub and told the online assistance our special requests and she said she would email the hotel but it was subject to availability. So, just to make sure, we emailed the hotel too, via the hotel website and their manager was friendly and said she would help us(subject to availability) with our special requests.
The cab fare was 250baht + 25 toll from the airport but more expensive when you are leaving, its more convenient to book from the concierge guy outside the hotel. When we arrived at the hotel, which was quite late, ard 11pm, we were pleasantly surprised with our room as it was spacious, clean and just awesome cuz we were expecting problems and all after reading previous reviews. I guess our room was just one of the lucky ones. the wall color was orange, which is more pleasant to the eye as I walked past the other rooms, that looked smaller and uglier(red and green).
Clean room, wooden floor(which is cleaner than carpeted ones, believe me!), clean toilet, hot water, working fridge, hairdryer, toiletries provided but I suggest you bring your own favourite shampoo/soap/conditioner or buy at 7/11 just downstairs. big bottle of water given everyday, good tv which many channels, clean sheets and pillow, spacious room to put all your shopping, GREAT LOCATION! its super near macdonalds, 2 seven eleven stores and just a bridge away from pratunam mall! A street away from every other mall around pratunam, super convenient you hv no idea! :)
Bad points: noisy corridor (rarely). But our room wasn't near the lift, so I think that helped!, slow and small lift, the staff at front desk could be friendlier but it was fine... Hard bed but it wasnt difficult to fall asleep.They don't change your sheets even though we stayed for 5Nights, but that's what u get for budget! cant expect them to change all the time!
Tips: local calls from hotel phone is 15baht/min. Good for calling your tour guide. If the cab driver doesn't know where your hotel is, just say its in Pratunam SOI SEK KAU( soi19 in thai.. learnt that from a cab driver :D)
I hope you'll enjoy your trip like how we did! My experience with this hotel was AWESOME :D
