Krung Kasem Sri Krung Hotel

Reviewed 7 February 2013

We arrived by train from Chiang Mai and we catching the train the next day to Penang so this hotel was very convenient. Just a cross the street from the station. Room was nice sized, good TV,AC, hot water and a free breakfast. The WIFI leaves a lot to be desired. No WIFI in the room and the lobby WIFI is the worst I have had in Asia. Staff was helpful and stored our luggage free of charge for a few hours. The hotel also is only about 10 minute walk to Chinatown. The price was 750 baht. Good price for the convenience.

750 baht for a double room with tv and excellent shower. Got a room away from the facade and train station which was quieter.
free breakfast worth 2x120 baht - and free luggage storage in the day - very good.

Stayed on an overnight going from chiang mai to phuket.

Room Tip: Get one facing away from the facade as they are quieter

I have been staying at this Hotel for more years that i care to remember and always had a pleasant stay. I found most of the desk staff didn't want to be there and it showed. I always found the staff in the restaurant and on the landings kind, courteous and pleasant. 2012 prices went up and quality and standards went down.. The location is excellent and allows you easy access to all transport.local and tourist. I always liked sitting on the baloney having a coffee and chilling as the World went by. There was a niceness to the place not anymore sadly. Everything is now centered around getting your Dollar. The front desk staff tried to charge me 50 Bath for leaving my laptop plugged in although the electricity powers off automatically when you leave the room and take your room key. That put me in bad mood for a bit i must say. Portions in the restaurant have got smaller and more expensive but still very tasty and the big guy that serves you is a gentleman and part of the furniture from what i see. The area has many nice places to stay.

Room Tip: The front lower can be noisy but the view is not so good from the back rooms.

A miracle! I came here for the first time, after I escaped from Burma, in August 1988(yes I am old now). I came back each and every year:25 years in a row.
They always serve me well: when they see me from a far distance, they run to pick up my luggage...
The hotel is changing now:room rates, unchanged last 20 years, are up but breakfast is included in the price since May 2012. The difference us small.
Rooms are cheapest mid week and go up during the weekend. Rates are now 700-1000 baht for a double with shower, and you pay 50 baht more if you want a bathtub.
Room facilities have also changed: satelite tv, free bottled water, electric kettle with free coffee/thea, Rooms are large, technical problems are solved within minutes,you still can keep your luggage there for a few days to go up country, and their safety boxes are still available at the reception.
Location is great:200 meters fron the railwaystation(Hualampong), 220 meters from the MRT,250 meters from busline terminal 25(going to Ekkamai for busses to Pattaya)400 meters away from Chinatown if you use their back-entrance, the Golden Buddha is around the corner...
Now that budget airlines(Air Asia!) intend to use the former airport Don Muang again starting October 2012, it will be easy to get to the hotel from both airports. At Don Muang you cross the street to go to the local railway station or you go to bus 29; both bring you to their terminal opposite the Krung Kasem for just a few baht.
Don't misunderstand me: the Krung Kasem is an old budget hotel, mainly visited by Asian tourists... but my memories are made of this; and I always feel back at home at once,

Room Tip: rooms at the back of the hotel; higher floor (5th floor)

Just left there Feb 10/2012 - stayed for 8 days - the place has gone down - don't know if new ownership has taken place but not at all what it used to be. Prices are still very good - but the people at front desk not nearly as friendly or helpful as before and the restaurant (which used to be the drawn attraction) is below average. Prices in restaurant have gone up quite a bit and the food quality has gone down and portions smaller - that is what used to draw us to the place - but now, we will never go back.....we have been going there for 8 years and have never been disappointed like this....they called us one morning and told us we soiled one of the towels and if it happened again, we would have to pay,....we broke an ashtray and had to be 50 baht for it, which is way more than the worth of the thing....very petty - left a very bad taste in our mouth.....

The hotel is still in a very good area, close to China town and train station, but there is nothing to draw us to this hotel in the future.....they have let the place go down and its really too bad - the restaurant used to be packed at whatever time you went there - now it's like a morgue....
Never again.

It's kind of a run down but it is clean. The location is very good if you like walking or taking the train or subway and being near Chinatown and the river. The hotel restaurant quality is acceptable. This is no romantic get away but it is affordable and the location is great for those who are interested in local flavor.

WARNING: as of October 9, 2011, the map associated with this hotel on their TripAdvisor page is incorrect. The hotel is just on the other side of the canal from the Hua Lamphong Train Station.

Room Tip: The backside of the building is quiet. If the room smells like mildew, they'll put you somewher...

We stayed here in April 2011 on our way back from a beach trip to Cha-Am. Granted the place is a little on the old side, but the room was very clean, and comfortable, and at a price that was very agreeable. The best surprise was the hotel restaurant. We ate dinner there and breakfast the following morning. The food was outstanding...some really great Thai dishes. The hotel is also well-situated, and easy walk to Hua Lomphong Railway Station or the MRT (subway) station. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
