“Cheap average hotel”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

I must say it is very difficult to find at the start. The cab driver didn't know which lane it was and when we find it, we realised we have to stop in the middle of the road of traffic and walk into the little busy lane to this hotel.

The hotel lane and entrance looks dodgy but when we got up, it's actually quite impressive.

The amenities are complete, staff were friendly, room size was good, new and clean.

Overall we are happy with our choice as it is also right across the road from Platinum Mall, which was very convenient. Best noodles in town was just outside our hotel too.

In my opinion everything is good enough for me, location is middle of pratunam area. Value of money, it is worth due to the good location. The room is clean and comfortable. Maybe they should provide us some breakfast with the value of 1900 baht standard room. Anyway I am happy with this hotel!! Will stay for this hotel if I visit bangkok again.

Room : Clean , comfortable , shower water flow could be stronger, basic toiletries provided but please bring your own toothpaste n brush. free wifi, dim room lights that makes you sleepy especially after a long day out. daily room housekeeping , LED tv , two complimentary mineral water per day
Breakfast : basic spread but good enough for me.
Price : value for money. I paid around SGD72 for deluxe room with breakfast .
Location : good and bad . Near the hassle fashion market n shopping mall but if you are looking for quality clothes than here is not the place . hotel is located inside a small lane, the lobby is on the second level which is not noticeable during the day , when the hawker stalls are open. Not accessible by car, cab as entrance is blocked by stalls until they are closed in late afternoon.
Train/subway : 15minutes walk to the nearest station,.Rathacharop(couldn't remember its correct spelling ). Half an hour train ride to airport by normal service , it could be faster if you take airport express service (personally didn't try taking). One Stop away from phaya thai which is the interchange for connection to other areas in Bangkok.
Environment : like I say, the area is full of hawkers trade so be prepared for messy and dirty streets but good for street food lovers and bargain hunters . Many Starbucks and McDonald's around the area.

We took the Airport City link rail to Ratchaprarop Station, cheap, fast and comfortable. We choose to walk to hotel as we arrive ard 830pm. At night, not easy to take taxi with 3 luggages plus the traffic is slow and also the chances of meeting "bad" driver.

We dragged our luggage till the Baiyoke Sky hotel area and dont know which small lane to turn in. The people we asked are very kind to show us the way. There is one lady very kind to approach us and ask how she can help us. She kindly showed us to the hotel, if not, we will miss the hotel just at the small lane we passed by.

The reception gal, Ms Nam, is very friendly and helpful. Explain clearly where we want to go. The room is very spacious for 3 pax with extra bed and luggage. The rooom is clean only abit dark even with all the lights on. Air-con is cold. Wifi is at the acceptable speed.

Location is very good for shopping. Downstair as early 6am, the fashion stalls are open. They close early too. Ard 3pm, the stalls start packing. Cross over the main road is Platinum Fashion Mall. Walk down will find Central World.

Traffic is slow around the area. Walk is the best option to the nearest sky train, Ratchathewi station. It takes about 15mins. Depend on your walking speed. Get comfortable shoe wear. Alot walking to do.

The hotel was clean, new and everything was good. Staff are fluent in english and are friendly and approachable. Location of hotel is good. and convenient for people who likes shopping. The only drawback was that their kettles were a bit rusty.

Room Tip: Higher floors are better

I have booked Deluxe Room for a family group of 8 persons, for 3 nights. All of us enjoyed the stay.

The hotel is renovated recently, you can expected the hotel to be in good condition. Reception is on Level 2 of the Building, as Level 1 is a shopping mall managed by the hotel group. They have good sofas in the Reception, provide maps for tourist, luggage weighting system is available too. And they also have a Desktop for guest use.

Checking in was a bit of a problem, because i requested for a Connecting Room. They replied a day before i arrive to confirm availability. But when i arrived, they had none of these rooms available. This is really a problem because my aunt brought her 2 daughters and was hoping for a interconnecting room. I also booked this hotel partly because they provided these interconnecting rooms. In the end, we had to move our rooms on the next day because they only had those rooms on the next day. Clearly, this hotel needs better room allocation planning.

Moving into the rooms, it was pretty nice. Not too small nor big, just a decent size rooms with good windows. King sized bed, Rain Shower, Long & Large Mirror, Great Arm Chair. Unlike other 3* hotels though, no toothbrush set was provided. But shampoo/bath foam/bar soap is provided still. Coffee-Making facilities available, but apparently you have to buy your own tea/coffee. It would have been great, if they provided what other similar range hotels normally do provide to match it up.

WiFi is complimentary but its signal can be a mess at this hotel sometimes. Needs improvement still.

But the great thing about this place is, the Location. Get downstairs you are already in the middle of Pratunam Market(turn left into those tiny weeny shops which Soi 4 written above it and get in the middle of it). Main street has 7-11 and a local Post Office at the T junction, and a larger 7-11 store and also a money changer down the street. You may also walk till the end of the street and find yourself in the area of The 93 Hotel/Citin Pratunam Hotel where the Pratunam night market is, this way will lead you to the Baiyoke and also the Airport-Link behind it.

Nearer to the main road has got a a highly raved Wanton Mee stall(Saeb X2), and Crepe Stall at the start of the street which you should try. You can also see Glow Hotel at the start of the street, they also have a 24/7 McDonalds there. Other than all these food, you get loads of street food around too. You can also cross over the main road, and get yourself to Platinum Mall in 5mins, Central World in 15mins, Siam Square in 25mins by foot.

Overall, it will be a good hotel if you are looking for a Shopping Trip.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are larger.

We booked a triple room for three nights in Bangkok and was assigned a twin room with an additional bed. The size of the room was average and was sufficient for us to place all 3 luggages across the room (i.e. we had space to pack all our buys and belongings). However, we noticed that the room lacked some amenities we would look out for in a hotel - there was no toothbrush/toothpaste, no comb, the lighting in the room was relatively dim, the breakfast choices were limited. The location of the hotel, however, made up for it; it was right outside the Pratunam market, and opposite the Platinum mall, whenever we were tired from shopping, we could go back to the hotel to put down our shopping bags before heading out again. The hotel is also relatively near the Airport Link, and we could catch a train to and fro the airport, if you're intending to avoid the Bangkok jam - it takes only about 30 minutes by train to the airport.
