“Just the job”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

We only stayed one night but it was just the job, We had flown into BKK and used the free Air Asia shuttle bus to DMK and then got cab to the hotel. Room if i'm honest was a little bit tired but for less than £30 a night it suited our purposes as we were flying onto Mandalay the next day from DMK . Had a great meal over the road from hotel and breakfast in the morning was very good with plenty of choice. Would Definitely stay again if we were using DKK.

I would not recommend this hotel–it is not quite cheap enough to be a hostel and not quite nice enough to be an option for travelers who might want an inexpensive hotel in the city. We walked in and I wanted to walk out. But given our booking options we had to stay at least one night. The rooms had not seen a remodel since the hotel was built, the rugs were frayed, the walls had mold or had been spot repaired. Everything was old, even the towels. Come on, how much does it cost in Thailand (or in America for that matter) to get new towels. Threadbare towels are unacceptable! The breakfast in the morning was so-so. My kids had few options to choose from and the omelet was cold, not sure when it had been made that morning since no staff was at the omelet station, the 2 omelets were just sitting out on a plate. Definitely not a place I would recommend. There are some other reasonably priced hotel options close to the DM airport, so this is not your only option.

This is an average hotel with clean rooms and a swimming pool. We were there just for a night and chose it for it's proximity to DMK airport. It is very conveniently located. The best part? The restaurant across the road. The best food I have had in Bangkok and Lily, the cook/owner/waitress is super sweet and willing to help you make choices according to your taste. Ate lunch and dinner there!

Back to the hotel - It's great for a stopover. Enjoy a dip in the pool.

We just had a one night stay to be ready for the flight from Don Muang airport. The hotel is near to the airport and you can even hear the frequent sounds of the planes taking off and landing. There are taxis easily available and there is a card where you can show the taxi the location and roads leading to the hotel when you are returning. Ordered some breakfast items and the staff were not so proficient in English.

I needed a place to overnight, on my way to Chiang Mai. This worked, as it was reasonably close to Don Mueng Airport AND reasonably priced.

The room was a bit tired. I think it was clean, but it was a bit hard to tell. The carpet was worn and seemed dirty. The breakfast was okay, but nothing to get very excited about. If you want a western breakfast, other than an omelet, you won't find it here.

It works for a quick stay between flights. For a longer period, I think there are far better places in far better locations for just a bit more money.

My stay here was very comfortable. The rooms are big and clean. The staff is very helpful also and very pleasant. I ordered room service a few times for dinner and the food here is excellent ! If you have a flight in or out of Don Mueang Airport, then I would recommend this hotel. It also is very near to the hotel. You will not be disappointed.

I read some of the reviews who moan about Louis Tavern. This place is the best value hotel in the area. It was one of the first hotels in the area of the Dong Mueang airport which was until fairly recently the Bangkok international airport but has been consumed by the sprawl that is Bangkok. It is great! The staff are efficient and friendly and very very helpful. The rooms are not clean, they are spotless!!!! and although you could level criticism that certain aspects are a bit dated, they are all refurbished on a regular basis and are extremely comfortable. The area around the hotel is Thai, not tourist the street food changes by the day and by the hour and in the adjacent soi you can get any service from getting your phone repaired to having your shoes resoled! Don't expect everyone you meet to speak fluent English, they don't but they will try. This is their country, meet them halfway. I have stayed at this place for over 10 years and frankly would not stay anywhere else if I wanted to be near the airport. Like I say, if you want to be in Thailand stay here..It's worth it.

Room Tip: Go to the restaurant in the garden adjacent to the hotel "Aroi ti Seuen" for a bit more lo...
