“Bangkok China town's choice hotel”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

Strategically located in Bangkok city, close to China town and within walking distance to Grand Palace located around 1km NW from hotel(Go at opening time 9am-entry 500Baht) Wat Phrakaeo or the Emerald Buddha is in the same vacinity. Wat Pho or the Reclining Buddha is also nearby with Wat Arun or the Temple of Dawn where one needs to proceed to the pier to cross the river by boat.
If temples are your interest, go around 1km NE from hotel to Wat Saket or Wat Golden Mountam & admire the 37 spires at Wat Ratchanatdaram Worawihan located along Mahachai Road. Boat cruise will also take you to all major temples/tourist attraction (Follow schedule-fixed price) Plenty of shopping, new or second hand goods are located everywhere along main roads or small alleys (even on bridges-self extension across river). Bargin for lesser deal from the offered price while shopping. No bargaining for food & breverage though.
Transportion by bus is the cheapest (need to ask& be familiar) other wise tuk-tuk is convenient too(bargain & fixed the price before proceed) Always take taxi with meter unless agreed earlier.

Room Tip: Ask for 23rd floor room with panaromic view of Bangkok (No mosquito too) Top 24th floor is restauran...

This is an old high rise hotel that could be maintained better ( musty smell) but then it would not be a budget hotel. The rooms were clean and quiet. Easy walking distance to street and restaurant food in Chinatown. Close to attractions like Kings Palace.
We did not like the fact that there is an additional charge for everything. Such as the use of the tiny roof top pool and exercise room; wifi; airport transfers at a higher rate than taxi service. When we arrived they said to go to the rooftop bar for our free welcome drink, which turned out to be only one small drink of a sugary fruit punch to share per couple. The views from the rooftop were nice but the restaurant's menu was over priced.
Hotel is accessible and has a lift.
Staff had good English skills and were very helpful but their tour bookings and transportation costs were over priced and it is better to arrange yourself or elsewhere.

Room Tip: Higher floors on front side of Hotel have best views, looking towards King's Palace.

The hotel is very old and not maintained very well. However the biggest issue for me was the way the handled the billing. We wanted to pay for the room with cash (Baht), but they still wanted to hold a credit card authorization of any incidentals, which was fine with us. However then they went ahead and charged the room the credit card, and on top of that they converted the charge to USD instead of Baht. in the conversion process they gave us a really poor conversion rate and charged us a 3% conversion service fee! All in all they added about 5USD to the charge, when we asked them to reverse the charge and allow us to pay for it with cash they refused.

Hotel located at a China town with heavy traffic in the morning hours and very quiet at nite where you could hardly see people out walking on the road. Bad location where we got to walk for 10 minutes just to buy a bottle of mineral water. No restaurant around this area at nite time as all are closed. Rooms are smelly accompanied with an unfriendly staff. Breakfast are normal at level 2 & 3 respectively. Not recommended for group tour nor even a family tour as it's create a situation of very inconvenients.
