“Give It A Miss”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

Average overall and certainly plenty better in Bangkok. The rooms are drab and uninspiring, old and out dated, this hotel has little to offer apart from the handy location a short walk from Kho San Road. Staff were OK and seemed quite obliging. We were asked to pay 150tb for a buffet breakfast that was basically picked clean at 7.00am in the morning!
Wont stay again.

We stayed here a couple of times on several occasions. The hotel is quite old-fashioned, rooms are large, some of them have very noisy airconditioners that sometimes even leak. But still we come here because we like the location although it has been changing a lot in recent years and certainly will continue doing so. Altogether a decent option if one doesn't expect anything fancy.

Good location, walking distance to Khao San Road. There's 711 near the hotel for immediate needs, Food stalls and bar across the street.. Average breakfast. Hotel itself quite old enough. TV no english channels. Hot shower was broken. Upon arrival, one could be lost and might inquire on the receptionist on Nouvo City Hotel, in which in turn, New World entrance should be on the other side.

Great location. Bed was a little hard but I could still sleep. Keep in mind this is a Muslim hotel so I you are a drinker I would stay somewhere else. (There is a bar across the street). The TV is mostly in Thai so if watching Western TV is a big deal I would also look elsewhere. Public transit is nearby and very easy to get a taxi. Taxi rate from BKK was ฿500. There is a free shuttle one way to MBK mall and the bell captain will get a metre taxi for you if you would like. 7-11 is next door too! The restaurant is excellent just remember no beer or pork. Overall I would stay here again.

For all my travels, this would be by far the worst hotel that I have stayed in. Rooms were very grimy, the beds were that hard, I'm sure I would have got a better sleep, if I had slept on the floor, but they were dirty as well. The bathroom looked as it hadn't been cleaned for a few days, and the shower was broken. When I called reception, they told me that a serviceman would look at it tomorrow. Since i was only there one night, they didn't move me to another room. Will in future when in Bangkok, look elsewhere for a hotel, unless you like sleeping on concrete.

This hotel isn't worthy of a 3 star. My wife and I checked into the standard room which we booked on agoda. To say the least we were placed in a room that was nothing as pictured online.

The room was so moldy that the stench was making us sick just from being in there for half an hour. The walls had cracks in them, the WiFi was so slow we ended up giving up on it. The air conditioner unit was terribly noisy and the bathroom was worst then a gas station washroom. The view outside the balcony was a big wall of a building next door. Not to mention dust bunnies all over the floor.

We repacked our things and told the front desk which her solution was that she would send housekeeping to clean up. I don't mean to sound rude but I don't think housekeeping can tear the room down and rebuild it in the for us to stay the night because that's the only solution that I could think of.

The front desk lady then placed us in the only other room available which was great news except that it had two single beds! We were too tired to argue at this point so we just obliged.

The only improvement with this room we got instead was half the amount of mold. And this rooms ac wasn't just noisier but kept shorting at the breaker panel which we had to reset frequently. Really disappointing long weekend mini getaway for us. We have been told by local friends that there are plenty of better options for the price and location. Never again!!

Stayed in bangkok for 2 days, mainly as a starting point to meet up with friends flying in from different countries before we all head up north and a start to our 3 weeks vacation in thailand. The hotel was a good value- clean room inclusive basic breakfast. The location is good- near some restaurants, 7-eleven, walking distance to khao San road. We took tuk tuk or taxis to other sites. We did not pay much for the taxis (never take those tuk tuks waiting outside of the hotel, they will trick you and take you to some souvenirs shop.- when we refused, he told us to get off his tuk tuks). The hotel reception are nice and helpful. It's recommended if you are staying only for 3 days max. There are two sides of the hotel, the new building and the older building- the prices differ tremendously (we stayed at the old building).
