Come to this hotel if you want to escape the Europeans Americans and Australians who fill the hotel downtown making it difficult to believe you have ever left home.
Come if you want a room price that is realistic.
Don't come if you want to be near the tourist sites and the shopping. Taxis downtown cost around Baht120 although trying to get a driver to use the meter for the return is difficult ...expect to pay double price for the return unless you speak good Thai.
Don't come if you want to be near the international airport. The hotel is close to Don Muang which now only serves a limited number of domestic flights. The international airport which opened two years ago is an expensive (1500-2000 baht) taxi ride away.
Don't come if you dislike Chinese tour groups, aalthough you can escape them by asking for a room on one of the "executive" floors and taking breakfast early.
I have been using the Maruay for around 12 years. Usually for stays around a week long as I work at the nearby Kasetsart University. The university attracts many foreign visitors to the hotel.
The rooms are comfortable and well maintained, breakfast is a buffet thats about average in quality. The front desk staff are extremely helpful if you have any problems.
For me, working in the local area, the Maruay is excellent but I must emphasise that its not a hotel for sightseeing tourists.
