How to Get There
The rooms are typical chinese bedrooms, very quiet. On the ground floor is a well known cafe with life music of the better class. The lobby is furnished like a romantique salon, but it is also some kind of a museum, the private collection of the owner. The staff at the reception is exceptionally friendly and of high level of education. We just paid them a visit after spending there several nights last year. Restaurants of any style and for any budget are all around in the neighborhood as are several banks, fresh fruit stands. As the evenings approach the real whirling Chinatown starts. We felt quite save strolling around there. Don´t be shy to try the
excellent famous noodle soups or have a lunch buffet at one of the hotels around & be surprised. Walking further into the Yaowarat Road on the same side as Shanghai Mansion you will find inlets to special markets between the houses. As far as I remember, one of these narrow "markets" will be the way to the oldest chinese temple in Bangkok from about 1658, - on the right hand side - a real island of silence !!! We were there February 2018
This hotel was booked for us through a travel company and we didn’t know what to expect. However we were welcomed so warmly by the staff with a wai and the staff took our bags to our rooms from the car for us while we had a complimentary hot towel and shot of juice. The staff were always so lovely, welcoming and helpful and the quality of everything was superb! The breakfast was fantastic offering a range of hot and cold Thai, English and Chinese food (see photos for food options), which included a range of cooked eggs, custard buns, juices, toast and pastries and fresh fruit. This hotel is definitely very different to any hotel I’ve ever stayed in before, as there are no widows in the rooms and thus it can get quite dark in the room at times, however it creates an ambience of calm and quiet in the busy china town situated literally as you step through the entrance. Do learn some Thai phrases such as the general greeting hello, goodbye, thank you as it’s very polite and you’ll say it often, and also learn how to say no politely (this came in handy many times when we were approached by drivers or salesmen and women outside our hotel who wanted us to buy things or take us somewhere).
The room had very interesting decor, and as you can see from the pictures the sink is situated outside the bathroom itself, however this presented no problems. There is a free safe in the closet, silk dressing gowns and slippers in the wardrobe and the cleaners change the towels and tidy every day (they do suggest leaving tips for cleaners and bell boys - which we did).
The hotel does not have a gym or pool, however this wasn’t an issue as we were only staying for 3 nights and we did plenty of walking around in the day. Happy hour is 5pm until late and is 300baht per cocktail (see photos for some signature cocktails). The hotel is situated just at the end of china town, where you’ll find no problem getting the local tuk tuk transport to local temples, river boats, or adult entertainment center for about 100-300 baht depending on where you need to go and how many people in the tuk tuk (you do need to barter). To eat we recommend turning right out the hotel and staying on that side of the road for a Chinese restaurant to eat at (extremely cheap and lovely food), or you can even try the street food as there is plenty.
Overall I would very much recommend this hotel for families with older children as the hustle and bustle of china town could become a bit much and the ambience and decor of the hotel is very much adult oriented. I would definitely come back here if I was to stay in china town again. Thank you for a lovely stay!
First of all this hotel is a really good value. But do not let that have you believe it is not as good as the more expensive 5 star options. It is better (I've stayed at both options). Here's the break down of why.
1. Rooms are charming. This is a themed hotel. It is not over the top luxury like the Shangri la but it has a quaint feel with attention to detail from the gate to your bed.
2 service was impeccable. This I cannot stress enough. From the door man to the bar tender to the reception. Everything was well coordinated, courteous and mindful. They are able to adjust and think for themselves on how to best serve you rather than following a script.
3. The freebies are the best I've had in Thailand. This is true even compared to the 5 star hotels. The shampoo and conditioners were their own line that they use for their spa (usually I'm very picky about this). This was the best set I've used in Thailand.
Mini fridge was free but actually well stocked with pop water and beer. This was the best free mini fridge I've had in Thailand.
To put it over the top they give you a complimentary free Thai massage (1 hour) you can book as soon as you check in. Noon my therapist was very friendly mindful and frankly gave me the best massage I've received in Thailand (my back cracked in a chain effortlessly). I've had a ton of massages in Thailand and the best one I got was free!!!!
No complaints will definitely recommend to my friends.
Gay couple visiting Bangkok. Very nice environment!! The staff is GAY FRIENDLY and very respectful towards gay. This is the gay safe place to be in Bangkok!!
PONG, the bellguy and GUY, the receptionist, made our stay wonderful and they will help you to go through the city with valuable advice (place to go and price of services...) they are definitely a reference in this hotel
Had 4 nights here recently and was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The staff are very friendly and the decor of the entrance and check in stunning. The room itself was efficient and cozy although I was surprised there was no windows which made it a bit claustrophobic. We did not eat here but the bar at the front of the hotel is very good and cocktails and wine list is long. Great for people watching with nightly bands. We were given the option of a massage and walking tour which you should take as they are very good. And of course the location in the middle of Chinatown is the best as at night there is many options of street food and bars. The MRT and Riverboat are short walks away.
