“Good for short stay, but less so for long stay”
Reviewed 2 May 2013

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.

Literally just down the road to airport. Opposite the hotel there is a massage and spa center. Wifi is free but not efficient. So, I will have to use the lobby wifi after many attempts failed. Room are really big and spacious and clean. Love the bathroom sink, its really unique. Breakfast is good and staff are friendly too.

Room Tip: corner room are bigger

A good hotel with a dedicated staff. The basic room was relatively large and had a good sized bathroom. We like it because its serene, quiet and secured. Cosy lobby with free wi fi. B'fast is good. Located close by the airport & Central Mall. We would stay here again.

I stayed in a one bedroom serviced apartment for a month. First of all, what was advertised didn't totally match what I got. There was supposed to be a fully equipped kitchen, which to me and every other self service apartment I've rented, means there are dishes, and silver, and some cooking pans. There were two glasses and two coffee cups. I asked for more dishes and got them, but decided I wouldn't try to cook here, especially when I discovered there would be a breakfast buffet. There was also supposed to be a stocked bar in the lobby where you could socialize with your fellow travellers--not so. The apartment was fairly clean when I arrived, but there was a large crack in one of the walls in the bedroom, and the bottom of the bathtub was peeling badly. The pictures used for advertising must have been taken when the hotel was new.

The staff at the hotel are very nice and try to be helpful, but there was only one person who spoke English well enough to understand my questions and needs. She told me that about 80% of their customers are Thai, so I think they probably don't care that much about the rest of us. The WiFi was very unreliable. I had to call at least once a day and sometimes 3 or 4 times to ask for it to be reset. The breakfast buffet caters much more to the tastes of Asians than Westerners, which makes sense when you consider their primary customer base. I wouldn't mind that so much if the food were kept hot, which they were very poor at doing. The eggs were usually cold, so I would sit and wait until some hot ones came out. Eggs, toast, and some fresh fruit and concentrated fruit juices are the only items that would appeal to Westerners.

The sound proofing in this hotel is horrible. I would be awakened earlier than desired every day by slamming doors and talking in the hallway. I could also hear the traffic noise from a major road that was a block away.

The daily maid service was good, but it was strange for them to take away unused towels. The bath towels were grey with age and overuse in contrast to what looked like new hand towels.
The elevator stops at "half floor" points, which was weird, so you can't avoid having to carry heavy bags up or down a half flight of stairs.

I wouldn't recommend this hotel to a Western traveler.

Stayed here for 3 nights before I flew home. Reason for staying here was to be near the Central Airport mall. Nice room, only grouse was it was located down a soi and we had a hard time looking for that soi.
