New World City Hotel
Ranked #505 of 885 Hotels in Bangkok
Reviewed 20 March 2013

We stayed in 3 different hotels on our trip to Bangkok and this was one of them. It's definetely nothing special but for tired travellers it definetely does the trick. The service is very nice and helpful, rooms are a bit old but big, clean and not noisy. The real advantage of this place is it's location, steps away from chinese street market and Khao San Road. There is also a bus stop from which you can catch buses to main attractions like Chatuchak Market, temples and a connecting bus to Airport Link.

It's a good place to stay, not more not less.
free wifi, average breakfast buffet
the travel desk was really friendly, helped us to organize our holiday.
for more luxury (like pool & gym) see nouvo hotel (built together, but different services).
Location: quiet, a lot of nice places for shopping and restaurants around.

Staff were unfriendly and inefficient, the rooms were very basic, and it is next to a canal which stinks. The breakfast looked very much like it was whatever was leftover from the previous nights dinner, what little we managed to try certainly tasted that way. I haven't stayed in any other hotels in Bangkok but I would be amazed if there weren't better alternatives at the same price as this one. Avoid.

Upon arrival, service was rude and unhelpful. The rooms view was of a wall covered in ac units. The remote didnt work for the small screen tv. Room service was late, the coffee instant, the juice out of a can and no breakfast included. The bathroom was dirty and the shower uncomfortable.

There's a complicated backstory with this hotel, which used to be called the New World Lodge and was renamed New World City Hotel and then later a second modern hotel was built behind it, called the Nuovo World City Hotel. So, there are now two hotels, the older 50's hotel, and the modern nuovo.

Most internet sites book the older hotel, with 50's rooms that are decent, but show wear. The air-con is noisy, which can be difficult for light sleepers if you need it running at night. The toilet and shower are ok, but show their age. Mattress a bit lumpy. However if you get a decent room, it can be a decent refuge from the noise of Bangkok as the hotel is situated right on the canal, away from Samsen street. There are a number of reasonably priced little restaurants and street food out back on soi 2 and further.

Most important though to get a room facing the Khlong as the backside of the hotel just faces the Nuovo, so just a noisy wall full of air-con units buzzing all the time. As well, get a room high enough (floor 5 and above) and on the east end of the building (away from Samsen) as there's a huge bank of noisy hotel air-con and air vents on the west side. Get the right room and the hotel is quite pleasant.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms at the back, facing the Nuovo hotel, and also avoid lower rooms on the front, west s...

When arriving in Bangkok the hotel provided a driver to pick us up which saved us having to get a taxi and negotiate price!, the driver friendly and the journey pleasant enough.
The Hotel its self is situated down a side road which ensured a good nights sleep and only five minutes walk to Ko San Road which is very handy.
The hotel and rooms are very clean but parts of it need redecorating and a lick of paint! The rooms are spacious, come with air con which is much needed, a fridge and a great view of Bangkok from the balcony.
Compared to most Hotels in Bangkok it is reasonably priced and comes with a buffet breakfast, very tasty and lots to choose from. The restaurant and gardens are full of exotic plants and birds.
This is my second visit and I will come again.

stayed 3 nights feb.10-11-12 2013 small mix up over breakfast included. a major hassle too rectify. this was a BUFFET meal. most of the food was asian that did not appeal to me. finally a manager made a common sense decision to allow me to join for breakfast and waive the 200baht charge. due to a 3am departure i wanted to stay 1 more night. the rate went from about $36 to $51. a cab on the street to the airport was about 300 baht. the hotel charged 600 baht for a shared ride. the house computers were 30bant per hour. about the only thing they did'nt charge extra for was toilet paper! that being said, the room was ok but the shower had a too short and too narrow a shower curtain, no sill so the whole floor was soaked. a slippery and very inconvient pain. the staff at the desk was very nice but had to follow policy. all in all an unpleasant stay. it has an adjoining sister hotel that they encourage you to use its swimming pool @ an additional $10 (about 300 baht) per day.
