“Chinatown New Year”
Reviewed 18 February 2016

This hotel was conveniently placed for the Chinatown New Year celebrations. It was great to be walking distance to so many markets and sites. The staff were friendly and helpful. A positive experience for our first visit to Thailand

Room Tip: It would maybe pay to view a room before finalising, rooms on 5th level better quality than on 4th l...

My wife and I have stayed here for vacation over the past few years. The location at the top of Yaowaraj Road is superb for tourists on food tripping. There's a bus stop right in front where many public buses stop at. Bus no. 53 takes you to Pak Khlong Talad (Flower Market ) for 6.5 THB each. This bus then proceed to Tha Tien (for Reclining Buddha temple ) and Tha Chang (for Grand Palace and Emerald Buddha temple ).We were forced by circumstances to learn about this bus service as returning to Yaowarat by tuk tuk and taxis is extremely challenging and often very expensive.
The hotel is still undergoing piecemeal renovation and the renovated rooms have only 1 electrical socket. We overcame this limitation by buying a multiple socket (100 THB for 3 sockets; 120 THB for 6 extensions ).The electrical supply to the room is cut off whenever you leave the room with your key. Previously we detached the key from the holder so that the air conditioning runs continously but nowadays the key ring is fused to the metal ring. The mattress is extra firm and towels that overdue for replacement.The floor is cement with faux timber planks paint. Breakfast is basic and not worth the additional charge of 135 THB per head if your room rate is not inclusive. General hygiene and cleaniless is average. There's a hair dryer in the room plus 2 complimentary bottles of drinking water daily. The in -room safe deposit box is too small to keep any laptop.
Dining experience in the hotel is poor. For those tourists who are less adventurous, the Canton Cafe next door is a good choice.
The free WiFi service is often interrupted and we kept switching to the separate user names for the different floors (each floor has separate user name ).
Overall, still a tourist hotel with 2 stars only.

We stayed at 1 nıght at the superior room. Room was small but also clean. Bathroom has bathtube. Free wifi at room. Breakfast was free but just ok :) You may try omelette and juıce. Hotel has restaurant and offer lunch, dınner or drınk. Staff helpful. Hotel ıs on the Yaowarat road. It means evenıng tıme you can enjoy street foods, or relaxıng at the massage saloon, or shoppıng some gıfts but careful about noısy and rush traffic. At our tıme was almost begining of Chınese new year so many Chınese people were around.

Great stay. Receptionists and staffs are accommodating. Great location especially if you'd like to discover Chinatown and do food tripping around the area. Good and affordable restaurant just beside the hotel. Walking distance to the train station, and very easy to get a tuktuk if you're bringing a lot of things.

We paid the 1000 Bhat deposit and part of that was used to charge us on check out for the water and the two sachets of instant coffee in the room. Charged for the two bottles of water!!! One can of tonic water was an eye-watering 100 Bhat. The bedroom was ok. The bathroom with hot water shower was a bit grim; turn and use the hot tap only for a shower.
