“Dump”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2013

I would advise anyone thinking of staying at this poor excuse for a hotel to have a rethink. This hotel is not what is says it is. I recently stayed there for 2 nights & to be honest 1 night was 1 night too long. Like a lot of hotels in Bangkok they don't seem to tell the truth when describing there residence. Anyway the room was dreadful, i booked a suite for 3 people (2 Adults 1 Child) as i was staying with my wife & daughter. I had requested a non smoking room at the front, with a balcony & close to the swimming pool. I got a room at the back, no balcony, nowhere near the pool & stinking of smoke. The shower was also broken on our arrival after the handyman made a very poor job of fixing it he also kindly left all his dirty hand & foot prints all over the shower room. We also had no towels on our arrival & had to wait 4 hrs until a maid brought some for us, & when we finally recieved them there was only 2. As i layed on the bed to watch the T.V it started to move away from the wall. The bed was on casters & because it was a hard floor rolled away, which made it very difficult to sleep. I then discovered that the T.V wasn't working either. Because the room was so dreadful to calm myself down i decided to take my daughter up to the roof top swimming pool which to be honest looked a bit dirty but my daughter was keen to jump in & splash around in it so i duely oblidged. I wished i hadn't now because 4 days after checking out of that dump i got a ear infection which i'm certain came from the pool. While i'm typing this review out i'm getting more & more angry so i will sign of was my last remark on this place IT'S A DUMP.

Obtained via Booking .com The foyer looked great. They really cleaned it daily. my Bathroom was dirty please refer to photos. AND my photos dont really show how bad it was. Most of balcony occupied by air con unit. The paper thin walls were a pain i could hear couple next door. Poor WIFI. The manager lacked customer service skills and was not at all helpful.

Well located and a luxuous lobby, but it's all. The room is dark, poorly lightened and it smells tobacco. The curtains in the bathroom, the wc, the tub, all seem dirty for they are too old and used. The shower is either too hot or cold, never a good temperature. The sink is blocked.
In the night, you sleep like in a plane: the bed is not horizontal and the aircon purrs like a plane engine. TV has a 20" screen and the image is blurry for tv5.
They had forgotten to let 2 bottles of water in the room. I phoned the lobby and 10 minutes later I went to the lobby, asked water. It seemed impossible to give me 2 bottles, I had to wait... Finally, I went to a close market, bought 2 coke, drunk them. And the water arrived. 30 minutes later...
My advice: run away... There is another hotel, near here, which is well notated and at the same price.

I booked this place in hurry on agoda, because it was closest to victory monument, where I was planning to take a minibus to the Cambodian border from at 5 A.M. the next day. Since my fiance and I were arriving late and checking out early we thought it didnt really matter which hotel we stayed at as long as it was practical location wise, but this experience was truely traumatic!!! Although check in was swift and effective, I was shocked when we were shown the room, what a dump, it looked like a place you rent by the hour. First of all the room was tiny (my fiance who is a linebacker had problems getting into the bathroom and past the bed) and the bed was just two stacke matrasses on wheels, which ment the bed rolled through room at every tiny movement. There was nothing in the room, that was not broken or damaged or that didnt work properly (flickering TV, broken drawers, AC was super loud and made weird noises). The worst thing for me howwever was, that you dont feel safe n the hotel/residence, because the doors could be kicked in easily and there are some odd charachters staying at the hotel/residence, which one could here in great detail when they brought thai bar girls to their room, as the walls were very thin. There are so many good hotels in bangkok also in this price range , so there is really no reason to book this depressing place that should have been renovated 10 years ago. Furthermore, I wrote a similar review for this place on agoda, but they chose not to publish it, iguess because it was too negative, and they have listed the hotel as pleasant, which is a joke. that just goes to show that agoda reviews are manipulated and only get posted if they are good...

Stayed in the victory as my first choice the true siam was booked up, this hotel is like it stuck in the 1980's its old, as the title reads badly in need of a revamp. Building itself is beautiful but inside is a different story. The bathroom tiles were mouldy. If this hotel were to be brought up to todays standards it could be something special it has been left to decay. Tried not to spend to much time in the room an eerie feeling around this hotel over 14 floors and you never meet any guests !

The hotel is located in a side street which at first doesn't look promising and the hotel next door did look a better prospect but it more than held up it end. The rooms were less than $50 aus per night and yes they are a bit dated, the bath rooms especially are a little worse for wear. Yet the staff could not be more helpful and friendly, we were met with a smile and they handled the check in process very quickly and professionally. The restaurant was great with a good selection for breakfast ( could do with a change more often, the noodles dish is fabulous but was only on offer every fourth day). The pool is on the roof top and is very clean and well maintained, plus there is a great view of bangkok. The air conditioning in the room worked perfectly and in fact we were turning it down because it could get too cold.
The hotel is well located with the BTS Victory monument station within 200 metres and is centrally located to all the major bangkok sights.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone staying in bangkok, it is a good 3 star hotel with very friendly staff.

Room Tip: All rooms were the same
