Noble Place Hotel was recommended to my partner and I as a serviced apartment, so we stayed for about one month. The location, cleanliness, and spacious rooms were great, but there were a few frustrations that became apparent during our long term stay.
The hotel is conveniently located across the road from a large mall (Central Airport Plaza) and it takes no more than 5mins drive to the old city. There are always a line of red song theows and tuks tuks available near the mall entrance; song theow to the city being 20-30B for one. The mall also has an excellent food court in the basement from which you can get Thai or other Asian meals for 30B plus a fruit shake for 20B. For meals closer to home, just around the corner from the hotel there are several street kitchens that serve home-style dishes.
The hotel is also very close to the airport. Free airport transfers are available during day hours but otherwise a song theow is always available for cheap.
The hotel rooms are large, tastefully decorated, and very clean with plenty of storage space. Free bottles of ozone-treated water were supplied daily, and there is a kettle and two glasses. The fridge holds a variety of soda and canned beers, each about 30B. The bathroom is also very clean, the toilet and shower head being in separate corners. Hot water and pressure was good. Plenty of thick white towels are supplied, as is a shampoo from a wall-mounted dispenser. Unlike a typical serviced apartment, there is no kitchenette. Air conditioner was in good working order.
Our room was cleaned twice per week, including fresh bed sheets and towels. The cleaners were lovely, but unfortunately they started their work early everyday around 6am, calling out to one another, slamming doors, and being generally very noisy. This meant early awakenings and disturbed sleep for us.
Complimentary breakfast buffet was daily and consisted of both Asian and Western cuisine. Asian dishes were usually tasty and included soup, congee, simple stirfries, fried noodles, fried rice. Fewer Western dishes were offered- white toast, fried eggs, and frankfurt sausages. Cereal and milk was also available. Tea, coffee, and a few very sweet juices for drinks. Exotic fruit platter also popular. Unfortunately, there were several times when popular dishes (such as fried eggs and fruit) were not topped up despite breakfast still being served for another hour. Also, the hot food was often cold upon eating.
During breakfast with the other hotel guests it was obvious that the majority were Thai. This was also reflected by the poor English speaking skills of the reception staff. Over time it was increasingly frustrating because they could not help us with tourist questions, change for big cash notes, or other inquiries. Asking for more toilet paper became charades and after the first time we instead just handed them an empty toilet paper roll to let them know we needed more.
Wifi was fast with a good connection.
For one month the cost of staying was 15000B which is rather dear. Furnished apartments in neighbouring streets were being rented out for less than half of what we paid, though they didn't come with breakfast, housekeeping, cable TV, wifi, 24h reception. I would not stay at Noble Place for long term again, especially since there are close by apartments that are significantly better value for money, but for a short stay of a few days I would consider it again.
