it was great place to stay away from the traffic and many people, i took the train in the mornings to the central part of the city only 12 minutes to MBK and Siam.
“Stay here for best value and best comfort! 5 STARS”
I don't know why everyone does not stay here. The location is excellent, 3 min from subway...10 min to downtown. On a quiet street but close to action if you want it. The hotel is lovely, beautiful pool, large room with fridge and cupboards, ability to make tea/coffee. The restaurant is great with a lovely terrace. The staff are excellent, fairly good english and they will try to do anything for you. The housekeeper went out onto the roof/canopy with a stick to get our shirt that blew off the balconey. I cannot give this hotel high enough marks. The only thing is do not look at the map on Expedia, it is near Wongwian Yai subway stop, NOT Krung Thon Buri, next station over but when you arrive for directions go to the proper subway station.
“choice spot with quick access to all good city locations.”
expedia reservations were found promptly. clean room a good size with kicking a/c & good size refridge, excellent huge swimming pool, very good proximity to the BTS skytrain (about 2-3 blocks), lobby computers are fast and cheap quick efficient attentive & nice staff. I returned a month later for another week (3 total) before leaving thailand. no problems at all.
“Modestly priced but above expectations”
Great hotel, love the ability to go for a swim at the pool, which is big enough that you don't feel crowded by other people swimming aswell. Area is great, although Taxi drivers have some real problems finding it, and it would have been nice if it was a little closer to the main Bar areas (Patpong / Nana Plaza etc). But it's close to the temples which is handy, also it has a BTS station around 5 mins walk away which is extremely convenient.
“Value for Money!”
The room is very spacious, surprisingly they have a normal refrigerator. The furniture seems to be old. I personally love the swimming pool, quality of the water is great! Walking distance away from BTS, Robinson Supermarket and the yummy food prepared by the road side hawkers. Overall I feel it is value for money.
“Good location for public transport, but that's about it.”
The hotel is about what you would expect for a budget stay. It's a narrow side road to get to it from the main road, but it is literally a 5 minute walk to the main road where there is a skytrain station, so that is this hotel's main draw. All extras are for-pay (internet, pool, etc). Internet is a bit slow for the price. Budget room was kind of old and falling apart it seemed (can't trust the pictures). That's okay, but my main problem was that there was definitely inadequate lighting in the room - dim white fluorescent bulbs made it hard to be indoors there (and not much light through the windows).
“adequate low budget hotel in Bangkok”
Considered "on the other side of the river" by local taxi drivers and tour companies. Tour companies will not pick up at this hotel and made us meet at hotels closer to city center. Is within walking distance to MTR train. Taxis and took tooks (motor tricycle) available out front. Older neighborhood with work shops and food shops lining the streets. Overall, a good cheap, clean hotel for the budget minded. No frills.
“A classic you-get-what-you-pay-for”
For our trip to Bangkok, we chose this hotel for its location/price. It is fairly conveniently located off the Skytrain line, but it's about a ten minute walk down a somewhat sketchy alleyway to get to it. Service at the hotel was mediocre...we asked reception to call us a taxi one night for the following morning, and they never followed up with us/called one. There was cheap internet access in a decent lobby, but there were fees to use the pool/gym. Our room was decent size, but there were small bugs everywhere. The bathroom was also not what I would consider clean. It did have AC/a fan on the ceiling. Probably wouldn't stay there again, but if you are looking for someplace cheap/on the Skytrain line and don't mind some minor inconveniences, it's not too bad.
“We liked it!”
We liked the stay at Aiya Resedency, Bangkok. The hotel had all the facilities we expected during our short(3 Nights) stay, very economical. The rooms are spacious, neat and tidy. Excellent room services and well behaved/helpful and friendly staff. Though the hotel is located bit far from the main shopping areas, BTS station is only 250 Meters walk. if you are out shopping better return after meals, the restuarent is closed at 2100hrs. Disadvantages: Rooms are poorly lit. Distabce from main shopping center and communication(you will have to be patient with the staff - English not well spoken.
“Decent Hotel in the Middle of a Nowhere”
Pros: 1. Quiet location 2. Hotel staff are helpful and courteous 3. Less expensive 4. Free swimming at pool with very few people. 5. Cheap and good wifi speed ($ 8 for 1 week, 3 mbps) 6. Printing services available at lobby 7. Taxis are easily available 8. 2 blocks from last BTS train station 9. Within the vicinity of wet market 10. Restaurant serves good food 11. Rooms are cleaned everyday including changing of pillowcases, upon request 12. Very spacious room with laundry sink 13. Lots of cabinets 14. Water is fine. Cons: 1. Very far from Airport, about 40 kms, and difficult to find. 2. No other decent restaurant in the area, except their own. 3. Located in an area where anyone hardly speaks english. 4. Local residents are having siege mentalities around 9:00 pm. Looks like an abandoned ancient chinese market after that. 5. Most staff are struggling with English but they are trying their best. 6. No nightlife in the area. Linen stores are everywhere for miles around. As you can see, I am not mostly concerned with the appearance or furnishings of the room because I planned on going about the city for most of my stay and I just needed a place to sleep and take a bath. In most accounts, this hotel did not serve my purpose although I would say that as a place to stay, it has lived to my expectations. This hotel is OK for an overnight stay or two, but beyond that, it's your call.
