Reviewed 22 December 2015

Stayed for two nights. The location is perfect, next to everything and 5min walk to Siam Square, Siam Center, Paragon, MBK etc. Skytrain stop just around the corner.

Don't expect much customer service. The lobby is also the restaurant but it doesn't look very appealing. Rooms are basic, bed ok and ac works. The shower is either burning hot or ice cold. There is nothing between. WiFi works and the room price is low considering the location. OK hotel to stay for few nights if you want to spend your days shopping .

Room Tip: Nice views from upper floors.

I found this place on booking.com, it was a lot more expensive than others in its league but fancied a change from the budget rooms in hostels. I assumed because it was more expensive than others that it would be nicer, boy was I wrong.

The hotel, walk through the main entrance and it looks like you've stepped into a tax office with its original 1970s decor. This is consistent through out the place. It looks tired and warn out. The owner obviously doesn't want to spend any money on it and it shows. All the walls are marked and dirty. Rubbish on the floors. Walk up the stairs from reception and you'll be met with probably the most ridiculously designed door in history, try opening it towards you whilst walking up the stairs with hands full of luggage!

On floor 5 there's a broken floor tile in the middle of the corridor that looks like it's been broken for years and they've made no effort to fix it or warn people it's damaged. This has created a hole in the floor approx 1 inch deep. Step over the dangerous broken tile the whole floor raises up when you walk past making an unpleasant crash for the people (if any) that occupy the rooms next to it. There's no smoke detectors in the rooms and the fire extinguishers look dated like the decor.

Inside the room, you'll have the pleasure of paper thin dirty curtains. Single glazed rotting wooden windows with gaps around the edge for Mosquitos to get in. Aircon that blasts out like a jet engine that cannot be controlled (Take your ear plugs). A built in dressing table with all the plastic veneer pulled off. A bed that felt like a trampoline. A tv with about 10 channels on it but only about 4 work, none are in English and the remote only works if you're 1cm away from the screen. A bathroom with a bath and shower head that you have to hold to wash yourself in. Why didn't they mount it on the wall up high like every other shower in the world? But no, no shower curtain either so either lie in the dirty yellow bath. The toilet is so close to and facing the side of the sink you have to sit sideways with your feet in the bath to use it.

Things I did like:
- The lift was smooth and quiet. But had dangerous loose Lino on the floor so be careful when exiting.
- The coffee shop next door 'A Journey'.

So to summarise I highly suggest you avoid this death trap and stay somewhere much nicer for cheaper.

This hotel has an excellent location! Honestly its really my main concern for my hotel choice.Very close to everything in Bangkok. It is walking distance to one of the cheapest shopping malls, MBK and also close to a more pricey mall such as Siam Paragon. A few steps also to National Stadium station wherein you can go conveniently anywhere in BKK. Its 3 minutes walk to Jim Thompson house, one of the must-see in BKK.

Contrary to most comments here, our room which was room 402 was okay. Many reviews say that hot/cold shower and aircon cannot be controlled but ours was controllable. Breakfast was a typical one such as fresh juice, bread, eggs, bacon, sausages. The hotel personnel were polite and welcoming.

If you just want a place to sleep in BKK at a very affordable price and close to shopping malls and train station, this hotel is perfect!

Room Tip: Choose room 402. Shower and Aircon can be controlled. I have heard most rooms are not.
