Stayed in this hotel for a week during our stay in Bangkok.
Once you’re in Platinum Fashion Mall, the other malls are connected through a bridge, so walking isn’t that bad.
I have mixed reviews on this hotel…
For toiletries, only soap and shampoo were provided… You have to pay for extras.
Minibar is pricey… Especially since a 7-11 is only across the street.
You get 2 free bottles of water everyday…But you have to leave the bottle in the room (it’s not disposable).
Don’t expect views from the Window… It’s a hotel in the City!
Room has a good size.
TV is 32 inches, but it’s either you watch a very old movie, or you undestand Thai.
World Cup (2018) was shown for free, but the commentators were Thai.
Room Wi-Fi? You have to pay… And the rate is daily!
Free Wi-Fi is only available at the lobby, depending on your device, signal can reach the pool area.
Breakfast is a hit and miss… Mostly, a miss!
But thanks to McDonald’s and Starbucks at the ground level, you’ll be fine!
Other then the lack of free room Wi-Fi, the biggest complain I have is the very weak water pressure of the shower…
We complained this issue and they told us the entire hotel has the same water pressure…
I also can’t figure out how to mix cold and hot water… It felt like the options were only hot and hotter.
There are better hotels in the area… But we chose this hotel for 2 reasons…
1. It has a pool
2. Its really near the MRT
I’m skipping this hotel on my next Bangkok visit… I can’t even recommend it to friends.
It looks great on photos and its cheap!
But the Wi-Fi and shower pressure is a big deal breaker for me and my family.
Again, location is great! We had to take the train to the airport since we can’t book a Grab and Taxi during peak afternoon hours…
Wi-Fi is easy, if only they can do something about the shower!
