“Best Budget Hotel In Bangkok”
Reviewed 17 January 2009

I stayed in Samran Place last February 2008. I forgot to write a review here but thought that I really had to contribute since the reviews here in tripadvisor was really helpful to travellers like me. I chose Samran Place mainly because of the good reviews posted here and was not disappointed. The place was really very clean. We stayed in the 8th floor and maybe because it was February, the weather was not that hot. The building next door was still under construction but there was no contruction noise heard during the night. Unlike other reviews here, the breakfast was great taking into account the low price of the room. Singapore was more expensive.

Service from the reception area was adequate. I think the reception lady mentioned in the earlier reviews was also there but we had minimal interaction with her because she looked snooty. The night receptionist (a man) was alright but not very friendly. The only good exception was the guard who assisted us in getting a cab to the airport on our last day. Hope they read this review and give that night guard a pat on the back!

Since we hardly stayed during the day, we really did not have much contact with the hotel staff. We were just happy that the hotell have such high standard of cleanliness.

Our room (I think No. 808) was really very nice, the decor and style was reminiscent of the 1970's, with the glass doors leading to the terrace, although the view from the terrace should have been facing the other way since the terrace was located beside the building under construction.

The best part was the location of the hotel, near the main street, the MRT, shopping places but was in a much quieter street.

All in all, our stay in Bangkok was really enhanced by this hotel.

Samran is a good place to stay however there was this night shift receptionist who was very unfriendly to us who even raised her voice to us when we cannot understand her.

I hope the management would do something about this.
We even saw her also doing the same thing with another foreinger. she's the one with short hair. we just didnt have a chance to call the attention of the hotel owner about this.

but we will stil recommend the hotel despite the unfriendly and mean treatment of that receptionist.

This was my 2nd time at Samran Place, and as before, this was surely one of the better (and cheaper) places to stay in Bangkok. It's proximity to nearby local eateries and the BTS station was a pluspoint.

If you are planning to stay here, go check out the nearby street stalls for some cheap and tasty local dishes.

The breakfast was nothing much to talk about as it's the same menu every morning and the portions are kinda small. However, the service is good and the staff are friendly and helpful. They can also help to arrange tours over the counter.

Highly recommended for all budget conscious travellers.

Having stayed at various 4 and 5 star hotels in Bangkok on business - which, obviously, was paid by my employer and I did not have to check my wallet in advance - this time I was in Bangkok on a private visit and wanted to stay at a reasonably priced, and yet a nice was not my main purpose to spend a lot of time in the room. accommodation - and I got it!

As other reviewers have also mentioned, the location is very convenient with lots of local restaurants around; these are not only on the main road towards the BTS station (you turn right from the hotel), but also on a soi which is very close to the hotel (turn left from the hotel, and the first soi).

My room was a standard room, the cheapest category, but it was clean. It did not have a good view as it was just next to a construction site - which did not bother me much as it

All in all, I was very happy with my choice and I would love to return to Samran Place on my next trip!

I am very satisfy with the hotel. The room is huge and clean. The bathroom is clean, that's the most important thing for me. The location is perfect, 10 minutes walkintgto MBK and 5 minutes walk to the BTS skytrain. There are a lot of restaurants around. The staff are very friendly. Need a little improve in breakfast menu because for the guess who stays more than 4 days will be very bored with the same menu. But overall the hotel is good.

This hotel was perfect for what we needed, a low cost hotel room that was close to the shopping of Platinum and MBK.

Food was decent and rooms were clean - all we needed as we didn't spend much time at the hotel.
The front desk was helpful with booking taxi's and day trips and let us extend our room for a half day so we could shower and leave our things safely behind while we went out for lunch.
