This hotel is a little unusual in the fact that it used to be a herpetological house, a snake farm in other words.. a famed herpetologist bequeathed the property to his son in the early sixties and he took advantage of the new wave of tourism, the GI's on RnR to create a safe haven for those looking beyond the titillation of Bangkok's underbelly.
And thus it remains a zero tolerance policy on drugs and people of the night, brilliant Thai food and a art deco ground floor. Clean but shabby - not in a chic way - rooms that provide safety and comfort..well you are in Bangkok, you aren;t going to hang out in your hotel room are you?
The staff are family oriented and very helpful and the manager a Mr Roger La Phoque is simply the most charming and pleasant man. The hotel is a walk in one direction to the street of Sukamvhit, and in the other a quick pedestrian overpass to the delights of Lumpini Park... and it is inexpensive.More
