A relatively new hotel situated in Pratunam. However, it is not near to Pratunam Market and a walk of about 5 to 10 mins is required to reach Pratunam Market.
The hotel is situated inside Soi 12 Ratchaprarop. If you are scared of dogs, do be careful as some can be spotted there.
Upon reaching, cool down with the complimentary welcome drink provided by the hotel.
An “open” concept corridor, without air conditioning. Do note that the lift is very small. Hence, you might have to take turns to use the lifts.
Spacious, modern and clean rooms. There might be mosquitos in the room but not to worry, just contact house keeping and the problem will be resolved.
Quite a spacious bed. If you are a very light sleeper, you may want to note that the dogs might bark at night. So either you have your ear plugs with you or just stay at another hotel.
The breakfast provided is standard American Breakfast, per head serving, but it is quite filling. No buffet style breakfast here, but not to worry, as there are so many other delicacies along the streets of Bangkok.
In summary, the Pros and Cons: + Near to Airport City Line + Spacious and clean rooms – Poor location (Away from Pratunam Market) – Dogs in vicinity tend to bark at night
Slightly outside Pratunam Market, need to walk a bit
