The proximity to the nightlife. Back away from a main street. Housekeeping was quick and effective when asked to do a quick tidy up The shower design was in such a way that a person who did this for a living would shiver. Water damage will be a problem in the future. You had to put in your wifi every time to log in. An auto log out is put in place for the customers safety.
Stained sheets, hair in drain and on floor, unfriendly staff at check-in, pool only open 8-6 when we would have wanted to use it after 6
Friendly helpful staff and clean passages and rooms. Great pillows! None
the place was very clean for the four days we stayed. The room did not get cleaned during this time but i'm sure if we asked for new sheets it would have been provided. Ignore other comments that toilet roll and fresh towels can't be found, simply ask nicely at reception. The pool is a very big bonus and it was nice not to be staying on Khao San Road.
The roof-top pool was nice, decent breakfast buffet. The staff was very unfriendly and rude, not helpful at all. Part of the hotel does not have elevator service. The first room they tried to stick me in was a 3rd floor noisy walk-up. The room looked old and unkept. I tried to get another room but the receptionist claimed all rooms were booked, (she was not professional at all). I decided I wanted my money back, but she said I had to pay for one full night if I canceled. I asked to speak to the manager who wasn't there. She called the manager and I told her I wasn't happy with the current situation. They finally found a small pint size room on the 5th floor with an elevator, but I still found the room to be old and tired looking (AC didn't work properly). I stayed the night and put up with lots of noise due to the bad acoustics in the hallway, and bathrooms that vent into the hallway which cause more noise, stink, and humidity. (I didn't get any type of compensation for moving into a smaller 1/4 of the size room) The next morning (2nd night) they moved me into a large room on the other side of the building, which I found clean. AC, TV worked fine. Unfortunately again the hallways were very noisy, other guests were loud. I would skip this place if your looking for a good nights sleep. Your definitely not going to get it unless you drink a case of beer. Cheers!
Location and convenience of nearby facilities The staff weren't as friendly as I remember them being from last time (Summer 2007)
Staff wasn't pleasant
It was quite comfortable to stay this hotel. No luxury but you can just relax. The room was quite tidy and clean. If you adjust water level you can have hot shower. Good value for money. After you check out you can leave your baggage at storage room with guy standing outside for 20THB /baggage/day,up to 3 month. Reception is always busy with guest arriving and leaving all day long. Plaza has lots of Indian owned shops and they are standing outside all day long and watching you walking past or tried to catch you as a customer.
swimmingpool; international lelevision; incheck and outcheck takes too much time
Perfect location! Close to Khaosan Rd but far enough to still be quiet at night. Harder for solo traveller to meet other travellers, very large hotel.
Location and that it was clean en cheap! Tha staff is terrible! Unfriendly and this in Thailand, one of the most friendliest country in the world! Most of them are unwilling to help and speak poorly english. But it is cheap and clean and that is more important.
location is good, quick check in and check out, cleanliness of room, quiet night air conditioning didn't work
easy access to everything . we will be staying again on way back
The room was very nice and clean and the staff was generally friendly and helpful. The location is also very good, in a walking distacne from the main sights (Palace) and restaurants and bars.
Roof top pool, closeness to restaurants, bars, stalls etc, the hotel restaurant is great My view. I booked a delux city view which I paid extra for but only got a view of the road and pub opposite
Great location, nice rooftop swiming pool Restaurant staff, poor breakfast
The location was quite good . 2 steps to express boat on river chao praya Rooms with cityview are very very lound due to live musíc played every night nerby.
the staff were so accomadating when we were checkin out.they stored our bags, and gave us towels to shower before we left the hotel for the airport. the only place we ate whilst in Bamgkok was in the hotel restaurant, whilst on our flight back to Ireland my friend got extremely sick with food poisining from the dinner we had the night before.
I like the location of the hotel; on the river, near khao san area. I like having a balcony. I felt the price is too high for what the hotel is. I stayed here 2 years ago for half the price, which I felt was a good price; for the price they charge now, you can find better.
Free internet via WIFI is good.
It is new (you know a new hotel is better than the same category one not new), in the center, well communicated, and good views. Very difficult to talk to staff. English is not the best in Thailand.They are also new in the job and they do not control very well their duties and explanations to the customer
Nice restaurant facing the river. The description of the room as "City View" is very misleading. Should have been "Slum View". It was very noisy and the view was of a depressed slum. We had to keep the curtains on to avoid seeing the outside and the people from the building across the street seeing into our room.
The hotel has balkony with a view to Chao Praya. Location is also very good. Breakfast was really good and the you can have it on a terrace which has a view to the river. Hotel staff couldn't speak well in English.
Walking distance to tourist attractions and the river with great street food right at your door. Good pool to relax by. Rooms have good sound proofing- Very little noise considering the location on Khao San Road and the night club located on the ground floor. Bed very lumpy
The sheets on the beds were stained, as were the towels. Staff at the front desk were not friendly at all.
Roof top pool is very good Situated in an exciting part of Bangkok
good location, pleasent staff. difficulty to switch on/off light in the room.
The Hotel is too noisy because of the Mulligan's pub which is owns by the same owner of Buddy !!! Don't pay the normal price, you would feel ripped off and don't choose the rooms which are oriented to Mulligan'S. In addition, the breakfast is not good.
the staff was very friendly. the cleanness of room. the swimming pool on the roof.
Not much to be honest. The air con was very poor.The sheets felt damp.The view was of a wall.The staff tried to get commission for setting us up with a tailor when it was us who were asking where it was.The breakfast was appalling.
Great location right on Khao San rd,close to temples and markets. Easy to use river boats to catch the BTS. Lots of cheap eats in this area. Nothing
Our room (deluxe) was clean, our balcony was large with well tended plants, the bathroom was small but adequate. There was some noise from one of the hotel bars but no noise from the street. The breakfast was eccellent. Shame about the Macdonalds in the foyer! Some noise late at night from one of the hotel bars. The taxi driver booked for us by the hotel to take us to the airport did not use the meter then charged us 500baht!
Rooms and Pool are nice. Breakfast was ok. Hotel is very loud - if you want to sleep during the night it is not the best choice. Regular prices are very high (3,500 Baht) - and the hotel would not be worth this amount of money. Staff was not very friendly - no possibility of "late" checkout (1 pm), no help with the luggage when arriving, everything very stiff and no flexibility.
The location,in center of Koh San Road, the swimming pool on the roof, the breakfast is excellent, wifi access only 60baht per hour check out at noon unless pay half room fee to check out at 19.00 - very expensive
I loved the location. I would definitely stay in that area. Close by all great parties and shopping. .. They charged me for pillow cases and sheets after they took my deposit. Pissed me off
Great location, pool on the roof and good service from staff.
The pool has a great view and offers a wide range of drinks the pool was a bit dirty, my room was right outside of construction, very basic, no thrills, no windows.
I didn't like the room, no hairdryer, old linen and towels, loudy air conditioner, reception wasn't friendly nor helpfull, no internet connection, my room was not cleaned during my stay. Definitely will never stay again or recommend to anybody as well.
A nice and clean hotel with a friendly and service minded staff. I can't compare to other hotels in Bangkok but I felt that I got good value for my money. Let me start by saying that I would be happy to stay at this hotel again. The room was not in a poor condition but didn't match my expectations of a four star hotel (it probably would have if I had arrived at the hotel just after it was built/renovated). My room didn't have a flat screen tv as stated in the presentation (not that it mattered to me).
very close to major sights in the old town, china town and khao san road, only 2km or so, 1€ per taxi. hotel staff was friendly and helpful. not possible to open windows, therefore terrible air quality. although AC was working it apparently only pumped cold air into the room but no ventilation.
Very good value! Large clean room. A very nice breakfast buffet included. Front desk service was very good and English spoken. I booked several tours through the front desk and their advice on selection was very good. The hotel is located in old Bangkok which is convenient for Palace, Shrine and River tours but a bit of a distance from the modern shopping centers and the newer part of Bangkok.
However you do not feel it in your rooms, the smell on the public areas, elevators was so bad. However it is close to historical areas, like Grand Palace, the location is really bad.
On the 2nd floor was a nice beer garden, the hotel is located close to a food court. Food was below any expectations, staff was unfriendly, cleanliness was awfull and it's noisy. Take a room in the backyard (if you're not disturbed by the music from the beer garden).
