We stayed here only one night - in the standard room. The lobby made an impression on us, but once we got out of the lift on the 5th floor - it was a bit like walking out into a hallway from communist times. The room was just as simple with a tiny bathroom (you could literally rest your head on the sink while sitting on the toilet;)), but for the price of 1300B one could say this was to be expected. The staff at the reception was nice and spoke English (which isn't such an obvious thing in Thailand!). They agreed to a later check-out (2pm), which was nice. The hotel is situated in the centre of Chinatown and close to many restaurants, food stalls, etc. Overall - if you're looking for a simple place to stay with a good location - this is it. If you're looking for more, just upgrade your room:)

While in college, I worked for a few hotels in Seattle, Washington such as the Four Seasons Olympic, Hilton, Sheraton; thus, my experience enable me to recognize 'Great Service' in this industry. On and off for the past few years, I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for about 2 months, and I just couldn't thank the entire staff enough for the service I received throughout my stay in all aspects!

Just an example here; If you're a fan of the NFL, you'd know the feeling I had when scrambling to search for a place to watch my Seahawks playing in the Super Bowl by which the pregame started at 3am; so, local sports bars, restaurants and even other adjacent hotels all turned were very inconvenient not mentioning those safety issues that due to the political demonstrations; Nina, she was kind enough to go way out of her way to have the channel that showed both games Conference Championship and SB in My Very Own Room without any additional charge!! Thank you, Nina! I'll definitely see you again on my next charitable trip and more!! :)

Yours, truly,
Henry

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights being our 3rd visit.The biggest pull factor is the excellent location in Chinatown. The lobby and reception area has been very well renovated. The rooms are undergoing renovation gradually. Great value for money for basic comfort. Staff are courteous and helpful. Breakfast is simple but decent.One area of improvement would be to have the air conditioning running in the room when power is automatically switched off when guests leave the room with the room key.TV signal strength is poor for some channels. Overall , a safe and comfortable stay.

An overdue review. Checked in on 16/2/2013, checked out on 19/2/2013. 4 standard rooms x 3 nights.

Location : In the heart of Chinatown, easy to get everywhere by foot. Hawkers, restaurants, massage parlors, convenient store, interesting temples and etc can be reached by within 5 minutes walk.

Room : Decent but small.

Service : Friendly, helpful and polite during our 3 nights stay. BUT we encountered a very bad experience during our check out. We were informed by the staffs on duty that the instant noodles in ours rooms have gone missing and they want to impose extra charges in our billing. We made it explicitly clear to them that no instant noodles were there in the first place. But they insisted that the housekeepers have put them instant noodles in our rooms. It was so ridiculous that the staffs made us look like thieves, as if we have consumed the instant noodles and in order to escape any imposition of charges, we purposely threw the the instant noodles cups somewhere else instead of the bin provided in the rooms.

After approx 15 minutes of debating, the staffs finally decided to let us off. Should we thankful or what? We wouldn't want to pay a cent not even a single cent for what we did NOT do.

Lesson well learned, ALWAYS COUNT THE INSTANT NOODLES AND ETC provided in your room and take photos of them.

After travelling from Nepal, this hotel was a amazing!!

Clean sheets, king sized bed, large TV, hot shower, free shampoo & soaps, pool on the roof (It's pretty small) and a revolving rooftop restaurant on the top floor (Good Food, but overpriced)

Wifi is available at a cost (but they forgot to charge me for it)

The hotel is situated in Chinatown, so there is a lot of shopping. (Mainly pirated latest release movies) The night markets are about a 10 minute tuk tuk drive away.

The only downside to this hotel was the assumption that everyone who stayed there had a lot of money and I found a lot of the tours/drivers/massage options they had on offer were a little overpriced.

Worth the stay.
