I just stayed for one night but had a pleasant stay here and found it to be a very clean and modest hotel with everything that you need. Good location, a short walk to Asiatique. Also very useful 24/hr concierge.

But the room decor could have been much better - as compared to the well lit and gorgeous Lobby and Reception. The view rooms overlooks...

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.
