Reviewed 10 March 2012

Had trouble with room key card for the whole day I was there and not just me but 3 or 4 guests on the same floor. The key cards seem to have been recycled so many times and repaired. Everytime I would try to enter my room the key card would not work and had to wait for the receptionist to come up and open for me. also invested with cockroaches.

Was good value, had everything i wanted. WiFi, nice breakfast in the morning, pool on the roof for the kids, (small but great fun for two 6 year olds)
Friendly maid put no pressure on room cleaning.
Located at the very end of soi 8 which is a good walk from Skytrain but hotel has own tuk-tuk /golf cart to take you up and own soi so no problem.
Same problem as all Bangkok hotels , noisy air conditioning, but since I have yet to stay in a budget hotel that did not have a loud air con I wont put it as a minus. Great rugby pub at start of Soi 8 too for those with an interest.
All hotels in Bangkok have their little nuances, this had very little to compain about.
Thanks

The first thing you need to know, if you didn't know already, is that the RAL is primarily a sex tourist hotel. So, besides being a rundown dump that's unprofessionally managed, most of the clientele at the RAL aren't there on business....... unless it's monkey business. The first time I checked into the RAL it was late and as I was walking down the hall to my room you could hear lots of moaning and various other sex related noises coming from the rooms. Notice that rooms is plural. Seeing 50 and 60 year old men emerging from their rooms holding hands with their 19 and 20 year old hired "girl friends" from Issan is both hilarious and pathetic at the same time.

The only advantage to booking a room at the RAL, provided they don’t botch your reservation (not uncommon), is that you can pretty much depend on them having rooms available.....even on weekends and holidays. Why? Because it's a low class dump that most people would avoid like the plague. Conclusion: if you’re a sex tourist on a budget and don't mind sharing your bed with bar girls and cockroaches while admiring the mold on the ceiling then the RAL is the place for you.

Room Tip: Find another hotel.

After arguement with receptionist about reservation at 1;00 in the morning after long flight we moved into our room with lots of mold and smell but we were to tired to complain.After a cold shower,hot water didnt work we laid down.We heard lots of banging and loud noise comming from room next to ours,doors opening and shutting laughing ,bottles clanking.after a hour or so we heard doors in hall open shut open shut so I looked out our door to see what was happening and saw a man with some camera equiptment comming out with 2 what looked like men dressed has woman.and another shirtless man. It looked to us like a film making operation.It was like a bad dream.
We checed out the next day and were refused a refund for the 2 days left but who cares.
