clean and nice hotel near the shopping centers and markets.

Room Tip: Do take taxi or tuk tuk near the hotel, just walk to the main road.

stayed there for four nights in January 2012.very good location. pantip ,platinum, MBK ,siam all are in walking distance.

good - the location
clean / big rooms

Bad - No windows (not even in mini suits)
Rude reception
Same breakfast everyday
Twin beds (even if you asked for a double bed)

But again the location is great .......... !!!!!!!! I personally don't like the rooms without windows.

The hotel is very conveniently located in the shopping area. A walking distance in a few minutes to all the shopping malls. But the hotel is extremely far away from the areas of tourists attraction. My sister and I stayed in a deluxe room. Room was big enough for us and very clean. Breakfast was fairly good. In fact, nothing to complain about the hotel other than the welcoming guests. Welcoming guests was not upto the standard of a hotel. The staff of the reception should be trained particularly to welcome their guests. No smile at all on their faces. The reception staff could not speak in English. Not only the reception staff of this hotel but also the people of Thailand cannot speak in English and therefore the tourists are not comfortable in Thailand. Padmini from Sri Lanka.

Room Tip: We were on the 4th floor. Room was so quiet.

The hotel is fairly average when it comes to service and comfort but if you are looking for an affordable stay that is just a walking distance from a night market, malls, and fast food areas, then this is the place for you.

I can't complain since it is really very cheap and it comes with a daily buffet breakfast and they replenish the bathroom essentials regularly and the room security is not bad at all. we also love the location since i am the Pratunam market every night during our stay (we just walk around actually to get there and to platinum mall).

It's an overall rather disappointing hotel. It was sold to us as a very good hotel with a fantastic looking flyer but it appeared very plained if not trivial.
Location is ok for shopping but pretty far from the temple area and the most touristic places.
Services was good as our first room was smelly and fairly dirty but we were upgraded to the mini suite which is pretty simple but does th job nicely.

My boyfriend and I went to Bangkok for retail theraphy. It was our first time in Bangkok and the only requirement we wanted for our hotel was that it was near Pratunam. It was very near and it was comfortable to walk around the area. Although it is quite far from the BTS, the walk was manageable. The hotel room was big and the bed was nice. The room was spotless clean and the receptionists and the rest of the staff were very attentive and helpful. Food in the hotel is very good! I would definitely stay in this hotel again and recommend it to my friends.

Very nice hotel. The room rates are not very high. Full on week ends. Not far from the main road. Not far from shopping centers. We could go on foot, or take a taxi or a tuk-tuk. I advise to take public transportations from the main road. They give as breakfast from 7am but we could order earlier to have the night before if we got on tours very early. TV cable. Shower with hot water. The personals are kind. Unfortunately they speak barely English. We could connect to the Internet (charged). We could ask the receptionnist to contact tour agents.
