Stayed at Pho Place for one night. Very basic hotel, fine for a stop over but wouldn’t stay any more than one or two nights. The beds were v uncomfortable and pillows were like bricks. Also the views from the room were not great.
Great place for the price, clean, smart and everything you need. Facilities fine and the staff are really friendly and helpful. We were welcomed by big smiles as soon as we arrived after a long flight.
Everything was very clean and as expected. We recommend it specifically for the location: in Chinatown, very close to the main street food spots and not so far from the main temples. The staff is also very helpful and friendly.
- Very close to Chinatown with dozens of options for street food - Very friendly reception girls - New bottles of water were provided every day - Changing of towels and room cleaning was talking place every day - Quiet neighborhood - Coffee machine and free coffee was available in the room - Many bus stations nearby - Small problem in communication with the reception girls as their English wasn't at a very good level. But they were always trying to help. - There was a balcony but nothing to watch as it was looking at a wall - The Wi-Fi was really weak and we couldn't watch anything online
Hotel is very conveniently located near Chinatown and Hua Lamphong train station. Room was spacious and clean, with efficient air conditioning. There was room service every day and complimentary water. All in all very good value for money and great vantage point for Bangkok sightseeing.
Front desk not very helpful (especially the night shift Men). The ladies in the day were better but still not willing to go too far out of their way to help. (Be sure you know where you are going or need to go because they were not very helpful)The best thing about the place was the location of China Town Markets. I would not stay here again.
Greeted by four girls in Muslim clothing, some smiling and others dignified, upon check-in, you will know that you have found a clean place. The rooms are tastefully decorated — not huge, but logically laid out (as there is a stainless steel sink in a counter top on the balcony, in case you need to do laundry). Adding to the cheer are eight LED spot lights in the room (plus three more LEDs in the bathroom), you will never get the dingy feeling as would in most hotels at this price range. Outside is Chinatown, bustling to the point of being hectic, this Pho Place is a quiet haven in a sea of noise, aroma, and colors. Ahhhh ... And when the hotel sells drinks at the same price as 7-11, you know you can sleep well.
We stayed here over 2 nights, and the room was very spacious! There is a balcony with a sink as well. The shower and toilet are in the same area and we found water dripped out of the shower curtains at times. We paid extra to early check-in and the hotel is relatively quiet as it is down an alleyway - the area felt safe even at night. It is located close to Chinatown and 15 minute walk to the train station (although this proved difficult when it was very hot to walk). There is a small tea break room in the lobby where you can purchase limited snacks.
We spent 3 nights as Pho Place in Banglok, which has a few rooms that are Zen Rooms. We booked as Zen Rooms as we were familiar with their standards. The hotel was at the end of a small alley off Yaowarat Road, so we were sheltered from the street hustle and bustle. The room was large, clean and comfortable. Sound in the hallway could be heard if the other guests were not courteous enough to keep their voices down. Yaowarat Road night time street stalls were just to the left of the hotel. Bangkok Hua Lamphong Train Station was a 10 to 15 minute walk away. We were also walking distance to the ferry terminals. We would stay here again if we were back in Bangkok.
It is a bit hard to find, but the place looks new, is clean and the service is kind. We stayed here specialy for Chinatown and because it is near the trainstation. The location is great. The room we had was spacious and even had a little balcony with a tap and sink. Not a bad place to stay.
