Stayed here for three nights from New Year, 2014. Hotel was booked as part of a package with Trailfinders and described as a superior room. I know that at times in Asia standards can be less than western, though this was grim. Very old style hotel, no bar, little in the way of reception area and the outside stank.
We booked a taxi from from the international airport directly with the hotel, though they just didn't bother turning up!!
Shower was poor, just no pressure. Whilst the room was clean on arrival, it was poorly lit and had a tired feeling. There was a pair of flip flops just abandoned in the bathroom... Air conditioning did work, though spilled over the floor.
On a positive note there was a room safe.
If you stay here, check out the Taxi stand, bottom of the hotel and turn left. We got exceptional value by booking the driver for all day, 100THB. Great for a taxi to the airport also.
Also good location for Khao San Road...
Breakfast wasn't great and very strict on closing times.
Staff had poor English and didn't seem that fussed on engaging with us.
A definite no, no. Expected a lot more from the hotel description if honest. Though didn't stop us having fun after all - it was Bangkok!
