Reviewed 6 January 2017

My partner and I chose to stay at Chinatown Hotel because it had decent reviews, a good location in the heart of Chinatown (with delicious street food right outside the door and just a short walk to the MRT) and a good price. However, we got exactly what we paid for: the staff were generally disinterested, our "superior" room was outdated and the size of a walk-in closet, the walls were very thin, the wifi was in-and-out, and our room's location directly next to the elevator meant a poor night's sleep. After going over to the rooftop bar at Hotel Royal Bangkok across the street, we realized that it might have been worthwhile to pay a little extra for a hotel with more to it and modern amenities.

Room Tip: Request a room away from the elevator. We stayed in room 607, directly next to the elevator, and wer...

The best thing about this hotel it's the location, super close to the train station, temples, food and you can easily pick the boat with a 5 min walk.
The rooms are very small and the bathrooms quite old.

Reception staff efficient and sort-of pleasant. Quick access to room.
At room was first slight problem....door does not open fully, as sliding door to bathroom would be damaged. So a floor-level stopper causes door to rebound at you if you forget and open rather quickly.
Next....in-room safe was faulty, and took quite a while to rectify.
Otherwise....average sized room, clean enough. At least it had a window. Bedding quite comfortable.
Breakfast fare very limited, in nice surroundings, with prompt attention by smiling staff to check if you want egg dish. Quite a bit of casual seating around foyer.
Chinatown Hotel lies at the bottom end of Yaowarat Rd[one-way], near the Chinatown Arch.
Buses stop out front, sign with bus numbers here, from main shopping areas. Getting bus return to shopping areas is a little trickier.
But so much to explore in the back alleys, a lot is only for wholesale though.
Great eating at night all along Yaowarat Rd. Quite a walk to river ferries. But can be a better method of reaching main shopping areas of Bangkok.

We were very happy with service in restaurant. We walked in off the street and were shown
to a table direct. The food was really tasty and most of the staff were friendly. They had no problem to making my meal vegan.

Basic hotel with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, with a window on the 5th floor that fully opens! At the time of my visit there was a Chinese s vegetarian street market that served food from midday until 10 at night when the famous shark fin resturant across the street .
Very conveniently situated with a 15 minute walk to lampong railway station and access to the metro.
