For our blogs first hotel review we couldn't have asked for a better place. The staff were open to our evaluation and I assure you that their kindness did not create a bias towards our review.
The Krungkasem Srikrung Hotel of Bangkok is 40 years old and is located at 1860 Krungkasem Road, Pomprah, Bangkok. It has 120 rooms that start at a single room w/ shower (1 double bed) and go up to a triple room w/ bathtub (3 single beds). All of the rooms have air conditioning, private bathroom, tables, writing desks, bathroom amenities (towel, soap, tissue paper). More importantly, the rooms are clean and there is free WIFI in the lobby and restaurant (there will be WIFI in the whole hotel in a few months).
The single rooms are 300 baht, if you are traveling on a budget, but want to have your own bathroom and A/C in your own personal room. This is an incredible deal considering most places are 400 bahts for a single bed that is within a dormitory style room and a shared bathroom. This hotel offers a cheaper rate for your own private room with private bath. This is the best and most valuable offer for this type of traveling.
The main benefit of the hotel is absolutely its location. There are a few notable locations very close to the hotel.
The first is China Town, which as we mentioned earlier, contains several amazing temples. China Town is also a great place for food and shopping and there are a few party spots, as well.
The next two are the Krungkasem road and the Phadung Krungksem Canal. The road was built in 1892 under King Rama V and took 6 years to complete. The Canal is the division between the old city of Bangkok and the new. It was registered as one of Bangkok's historic sites in 1976.
I saved the last historic site for last because it is the main benefit of the hotel. The Bangkok Railway Station is not only a historic landmark, but provides access to most of the city and happens to be right across from the hotel. You can use the rails for longer travels or the subway to get to most sections of the city. This makes the hotel a great choice for people who are looking to see more of Bangkok with ease. If we were staying longer, we certainly would have reaped the benefits much more than.
Below I have included some pictures to give you some visual representation of the hotel.
This was copied and pasted from our blog called Nomadic Adaptation. We are traveling through Southeast Asia now and plan to review as many hotels, restaurants and activities and will be posting brief reviews on tripadvisor because it has helped is so much in the past.
