Chetuphon Gate
Ranked #403 of 1,413 Speciality Lodging in Bangkok
Reviewed 24 June 2013

Was at "The Gate" the first time today and I wonder why?! Although the concept is of a snack bar with self-service, the service provided by the staff is still very efficient and forthcoming. The interior is classy and the aircondition makes it comfortable. WiFi is available. Food consists mainly of snacks like Panini with salad but Spaghetti and some light Thai dishes are on offer as well. Tea, coffee and a small selection of cakes and ice-cream (real, tasty ice-cream!) complete the otherwise small menu. Prices are very reasonable. A good place to pop in whenever near-by

Rooms (as a family we have experience of three different rooms). All are clean, comfortable and serviced daily! Although not over large they are perfectly adequate! Beware the stairs are quite steep, though staff are most willing to help with baggage.

Staff - Jan was a very helpful person who did her utmost to make our stay successful and enjoyable, even going out of her way to get us a table at the Deck By The River restaurant when they appeared fully booked. She recommended trips and arranged for my taxi to Kanchanaburi at a discounted rate. Her colleagues were just as helpful.
As Jan only works part time the staff at the Deli or at Arun Residence (along the side street) can hold keys and book you in.

Situation - Just opposite Wat Pho and very close to the Grand Palace. Many tourist spots such as the museum and market stalls within easy walking distance. Parking opposite on Thanon Chetuphon is free for residents. Also convenient for ferry to Wat Arun and river boats.

Dining - Deli At The Gate on the ground floor has a good choice for breakfast and snacks throughout the day. In the evening the do have some 'specials.' Several doors away at another hotel is an acceptable and reasonable restaurant. However, just along the side street is the Deck By The River restaurant at one of the sister hotels -Arun Residence. We ate here most nights. The menu choice and quality are super, though not the cheapest in Bangkok. This restaurant is on two floors and is very popular, I suggest you book the evening before.

Several of our family have experienced some Bangkok hotels being very poor, but once discovered Chetuphon Gate is the one used on return visits.
Thank You Jan and colleagues!!

This review is based upon a 50% discounted rate of 23eu per night. The full rate of 46eu is way to much and there are definitively better places in that price range.

We arrived at night and confirmed that it was possible, however upon arrival the place was locked down with no way to get in. Luckely a local helped us out showing where a sister hotel was and eventually we got in. The next day the staff acted like nothing happened and just asked for our passports.

The rooms are clean and a bit on the small side. Our room was filled with mosquitoes as the wood floors contained large holes.

The location for sightseeing is great as the grand palace and some major temples are nearby. However the area is deserted during the evenings and there are no restaurants or shops nearby.

The last day we asked to pay they said no need we already charged your credit card which we used for booking/reservation purposes only. We found this extremely rude.

During our stay we never say someone at the reception even at check out we had to hand the keys to the restaurant staff.

Overall the place was good for the price and good for sightseeing. However the bad service and nothing nearby like restaurants leaves us with mixed feelings.

clean and quite. Service is so good. i would come again because it is so easy to access in the centre area. Staffs are so friendly and helpful. However, a room I was staying ,it was quite small room but cute. and one more thing I like about was there is a cafe shop at the ground floor so it was good to have a break there.
