If you are fascinated about staying near Bangkok Riverside and again looking for something in Budget but stylish - you can try Tongtara. Rooms are big and fine - nice beds and a good shower. But the room decor could have been much better - as compared to the well lit and gorgeous Lobby and Reception. The view rooms overlooks... More

We had a room on the 14th floor, the view over the city was amazing through the large windows. The hotel is very nice and clean, perfect service and welcome. Well located in a nice area close to the river, metro station nearby. Very recommended!!

We stayed at this hotel for one night whilst awaiting an internal flight from Bangkok. It is very reasonably priced, I think we paid around £25 but on reflection I would rather spend a bit extra as Bangkok has much better hotels to offer: Check In - was okay.

After reading bad reviews of this hotel I was concerned what it would actually be like, as I was expecting a very poor hotel before I arrived it wasn't too bad. The room was ok, the bathroom could do with a refurb, nothing about average but certainly not dirty or badly worn. The restaurant was busy in the morning but... More

Ok hotell with a good location. Asiatique is within walking distance, about 700m. Taxi will cost about 45bath. Other main attractions is within reach with a taxi, usually less than 30minutes. The staff is very helpful and polite. Clean beds, bathroom could do with a good scrubbing. The rooms we stayed in looked just like it did 4 years ago,... More

I cannot say enough negative things about this hotel. The lobby is overdone, yet the only nice feature to the entire hotel. The hallway to the room on the non-smoking floor smelled horribly of cigarettes. The room was tired, run down, and not properly cleaned. The room also had a horrible odor, and I was forced to buy insense at... More
