“Great first welcome to Thailand”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Hotel De Moc was our first stop when we arrived in Thailand, and it was a great first welcome to the country. We had a twin room which was clean and comfortable, with good wifi. Breakfast was included with our price and it was great, there was a wide choice of food for you to pick from, so suits everyone. The hotel also has a pool, which was very welcome relief from the shock of the heat and humidity that we were not used to! Over all a very good stay!

I can't believe some of these other reviews. I stayed at hotel de moc last year and fell in love with it and so stayed again this year! If you are on a budget then this hotel is a little gem. Location is great - you can walk to khaosan in 10 minutes plus many other tourist attractions aren't far away. Staff are polite and are ready to take your bags to your room on arrival as well as providing a complimentary drink. The pool is brilliant and a little treat! When you are at the pool you actually forget you are in the centre of bangkok. The little cafe at the pool side is nice and shows the World Cup for those interested. All in all people who have found faults with this hotel were obviously not taking into consideration the fantastic price this hotel is and what you get for your money. I would definitely be going back and will recommend it to friends!

The location of the hotel was very good! Near to sightseeing area. The room was nice, old fashioned without anything special, the TV did not working and the internet connection was difficult. The shower was fixed on the wall and the tall people should duck so to wash their hair. The luggage storage costs 20 baht/luggage. Unfortunately, the pool and the area around needed more care. It was like that the staff did not remember this area. The staff was friendly except 2-3 people.

Room Tip: Ask a front room.

Ideal for a short stay for business. For the price I paid, this hotel was a budget accommodation ideal for short stay. The room was very basic and furnitures old, but fairly clean bed sheets for a good sleep. Staff at reception had some difficulty with communication but overall was able to understand. Breakfast was not that impressive and basic.

We stayed for thee nights at this hotel, and were happy with our stay. The staff were friendly on arrival and quick in checking us in. The room was spacious, with a balcony looking out to the pool. My husband had a massage and said it was amazing. The hotel is in walking distance to khao san road, and rambuttri which we thought had a better vibe than khao san. For the price paid I couldnt have expected any more. Excellent value.

Pictures do not resemble hotel well and were definitely taken in a better light. The rooms are very basic and dated. The corridors are large and dark and remind you of a prison. Staff were nice but we felt like they were always trying to get more out of us. Wouldn't stay here again.

Dear Brian B,

Thank you for choosing to stay at the Hotel De Moc in Bangkok, we are very sorry to read on Trip Advisor that you were unhappy with the services we provide here.

We understand that our retro 60’s style rooms may not be to the taste of all our guests. We have 92 rooms in this hotel and since our company took over in 2009 we have installed new wooden floors in every room as well as replacing new curtains, baths, beds and a whole host of other essential items. It is simply not true that everything has been left and neglected.

The year 2014 will be the a year of change for the Hotel De Moc as we are planning another round of major renovation work. All of the guest rooms will once more be upgraded, though without compromising the overall style of the hotel.

We are sorry you had a disappointing stay and hope you have better experiences elsewhere on you vacation to Thailand.

Kind Regards
