I ended up at this hotel cause I was on my way back home from two great weeks at one of the best properties in Phuket. I just needed to stay over night to catch my flight and boy I wish I did not.
I asked for a hotel close to the airport. The hotel is not any closer to the airport as any other hotel in Downtown Bangkok. The hotel is not in great area and you are just all alone over there with nothing in close proximity. Just imagine spending a night in Bangkok and not being able to enjoy Bangkok at night.
I will try to walk you through my experience.
As I said the hotel is out and about so here goes the convenience factor out the door.
The reception staff are not that friendly. I really did not like their aggressive attitude specially the ladies. One word of advise "not every man walking through the door is trying to hit on you, there are still gentlemen in this world". A smile goes a long way. I did not get a smoking room cause as it turns out the whole hotel is nonsmoking. Oh well.
The friendliest person was the bellboy. He was just great. I wish EVERYBODY at the hotel learns something from him.
The whole hotel and room were just out dated. It need a major cosmetic operation to make it look presentable. The room had cigarettes smell so here goes there nonsmoking rule. The room is just old, damp and smelly. The bathroom was really old. Amenities were just bad. Towels were not clean enough (I had my own towel).
The best thing about the room is the walls. They paper thin I ended up hearing everything going on next doors (I do not want elaborate).
Breakfast was poor and the service was just dismal. I think that had two person working at the restaurant which was more of in lobby thing. the omelets chef and the hostess who just disappeared.
Check out was just a check out. I really did not want to interact with anybody at the reception desk cause as I said there was a big chip on every bodies shoulder. I just wanted that experience to end.
If you have an option just stay somewhere else.
