“Low price wonderful location.”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

The location is just excellent. You are a very short & pleasant walk to the Skytrain & to the Emporium. The Emporium is a wonderful newer mall with an upscale grocery store & very nice & very large food court. The skytrain is easy to use & takes you almost anywhere you want to go in Bangkok. The smaller rooms are a great value as you can not get anything else at this price at a great location near the train. But if you can pay more go for the more expensive rooms, they are much larger & nicer. Max is friendly & is a great host. The two negatives, there are mothballs used in the lower level, probably because of drainage problems, so the property has a bit of a mothball smell. Also in the cheaper rooms, only one sheet is used, and both the sheets & towels are on the old side. Still, this is a wonderful deal because of the location & friendly host.

was in bkk from feb 9-14 for an ultimate frisbee tournament, so essentially we were outside the majority of the day (after 7am) and even during the evenings because we went to parties. the room for us was a place to keep our stuff and clean up after games, and well sleep as well, with whatever time thats left to sleep ;)

the guesthouse was very very close to the sukhumvit road, almost at the corner, and maybe just a bit more than 5 mins walk to the nearest BTS rail station that can take you to all the significant places along sukhumvit. an example is the Siam Square/MBK mall area (30 baht) where we practically did all our economy shopping (lots of great finds! - clothes, gadgets, food). at night go to Thong Lo station (1 stop away) and off to sukhumvit 38 to visit the dozen or so food carts where you can eat really good thai food -- check out staples such as pad thai, and tom yam. of course there are dozens upon dozens of other destinations across sukhumvit and the nearby locales, and these will be very easy to get to via the BTS or taxi from where the guesthouse is located.

The owner Max is very accommodating and pleasant, and is quick to suggest places to visit and how to get there. i have not seen him more than 2 times on our 5-night stay (because we were hardly there during daytime) but he'll immediately be friendly and helpful anytime you approach him. He'll give you traveler tips too, on how to save bahts when you go around (he taught us a cheaper/faster way back to the airport).

the bar downstairs serves relatively cheaper drinks too, though we did not have the chance to sample the scene while we were there.

the dual room where we stayed had a big queen double mattress and was pretty comfy. the airconditioning takes a bit to cool the whole room, but theres a dandy ceiling fan that can do a preliminary job. the satellite tv was next to worthless though because it only had non-english channels, so i can only suggest to leave it on the fashion tv channel where they dont talk and at the least they can keep you company while you fall asleep. the room had lots of drawers and cabinets to stash all your stuff, just dont forget to bring them home with you. theres a safety deposit box but we couldnt work the directions. im pretty intelligent so im quite sure its not about my understanding of the directions posted on the safe :p

the comfort room i was hoping was better, but it did its job so i wouldnt really complain. what it had was a nice hot shower, and a functioning pair of sink and throne, and that was that. you really just did your business and went off afterwards to more fascinating things.

if i had to complain, it was just about a couple of pesky mosquitoes that took all of 5 minutes to hunt down. the air was stuffy in a room that maybe wasnt used for a couple of weeks, so i guess a couple of bloodsuckers can be expected

this rating and review is calibrated to the taste of a backpacker and adventurer, and indeed if youre the kind who doesnt mind the low-key ambience, youll find that the mhc guesthouse is a very comfy and convenient home-flavored place to stay, in contrast to the usual posh multistar hotels that business trips will put you in. you get to save a whole lot too, which you can spend on your shopping/eating adventures, thats maybe probably why youre in Thailand in the first place :)

overall, quite a good and economic stay and i would be hard-pressed to consider other places when i come back.

My wife and I stayed at the MHC recently, having stayed there before, during our annual trips to Thailand. The standard of cleanliness compares well with other guesthouses and the rooms are of a reasonable size. The location is really convenient and that is important in Bangkok. You are literally a stone's throw from the Sukhumvit main street and close to the BTS skytrain railway station, you don’t have to rely on tuk tuks or make long walks.

Max, the proprietor, a retired airline pilot, gives very thorough and helpful advice to guests, beginning with the taxi fares from the airport and how to substantially minimise them. This kind of information is not so easily forthcoming from other guesthouses and hotels, some of whom might have an eye on their commissions. In our case we needed to do a ‘Visa Run’ to Cambodia to renew our visa and he took us along to a tour operator that specialised in this operation, complete with document preparations and handling, saving us a whole lot of hassle.

There is a unique air of informality and friendliness at the reception area that makes one feel at ease with other guests and staff where the exchange of experiences and ideas can be invaluable.

Some previous reviews mention a smell in the single rooms. The guesthouse operates a moneyback guarantee system so I wonder why they did not mention it when they first moved in. We could not smell anything in our room. Anyway I understand from the management that it was found to be due to an overzealous use of an air freshener spray. We did not notice any mosquitoes in our room and no one else complained of this however I suppose if you leave the window open then you are inviting them in for supper!

I would certainly recommend a stay here, especially for newcomers to Bangkok who could benefit from the assistance.

Room Tip: We stayed in 'Comet' room. Each room is named after an airplane. It is bright and cheerful...

In arriving in Bangkok at the MHC Guesthouse we were greeted by a nice boy who works in the lobby/bar. He was a great help at getting our bags up to our room on the third floor. The room was quite decent for the 20 dollars a night we paid. Hot water, comfy, bed and cold AC. Also well in was near a very busy road and steps from the sky train the guesthouse is very quite and I got a good nights sleep each night. Max the owner was also very nice and very helpful. I have no complaints about our stay at MHC!!

This is a very comfortable low key place to stay in a very convienient location. It is just a short walk to the Sky Train and very good shopping, with a very nice supermarket just over the road. The GH is very quiet and the beds are very comfortable so sleep quality rates highly.

Room Tip: The double rooms have windows, the singles do not.
