Boonsiri Place
Ranked #401 of 887 Hotels in Bangkok
Reviewed 18 February 2012

We stayed 3 nights in Jan 2012. The hotel is about 7 mins walk from KSR, so very good location. It was quiet but still near to all the tourist areas. As other reviews have said there are prostitutes in this area but we didn't actually notice them till the 2nd night. You can ignore them and they will ignore you, they just look like anyone else sitting on the side of the street they will not approach you (unless you are a single man.) The area is quite safe, we walked home at 2am really drunk and had no issues.

The reception staff ok - english is only mediocre but there is a security man outside the door 24/7. There is a elevator up to room, which is good if you are on the 5th floor. Rooms were clean, had a/c and are fairly spacious. The balcony serves more as an area to dry clothes than to see anything, this didn't really bother us.

The breakfast was ok, had a reasonable spread and freshly cooked eggs to your liking with tea or coffee withg uht milk.

Rooms were very basic, no safe, old tv balcony isn't really a balcony. Hotel is clean and well run.

Close to khaosan road 5 min walk. The hotel is in a red light area though with prostitutes about in the evening. We didn't feel any danger though and the people are really nice.

We stayed 4 nights but only had breakfast once because the buffet had cold fried eggs and I didn't know how long they had been there. They weren't on a heat plate.

A gripe was the internet they charge 60p for half hour and £1 for an hour. Many other places are free and for the price this hotel should do the same.

There are other places near and on khaosan road that are cheaper with the same if not better facilities. I wouldn't stay here again although our stay was ok.

I recently stayed here with some friends and on arrival I was so happy to see how clean it was. Unusual for Bangkok! Breakfast was small but nice. The rooms are large and staff are friendly with average English. The area is very authentic and local so if you want a nice tourist area dont stay here. Nothing to do on that road but it is so close to Khaosan road (10min walk) and Wat Pho and the Grand palace (10min tuk-tuk) that it makes the location perfect. If staying in the Khaosan area I would definitely stay again!

Hotel was clean and modern. Room was a reasonable size with a large comfortable bed. Breakfast was a buffet of fruit, bread for toast, tea, coffee, and juice with a choice of eggs made to order. Location was good for the major sites (Grand Palace etc) and only a short walk from the Khoa San road and all it's stalls and nightlife.

Your close enough to everything worth seeing, the staff will help you book tours and taxis (the receptionist is a bit surly though!), they have lot's of info on how to be safe in the city and you get free brekkie. Downsides are that you have to pay for internet when less expensive places provide it for free and there isn't a view from the rooms. Decent place though.
