    Good but watch for the scam

    by

    This hotel is really a serviced apartment and the location (Sukhumvit Soi 22) is very good indeed. Soi 22 has a lot of bars, foot massage places and small Thai restaurants, plus it's a five minute walk to the skytrain and Emporium shopping centre (you can cut through the big Queens Park hotel opposite), and close to lots of nightlife spots. There is a front desk but it's often not manned, however the security guard outside is always around. The room I got was the lowest priced suite and it was fine, including a small kitchenette. There's a small swimming pool and gym on the roof which is almost always empty and quite pleasant.
    Outside there's a very good coffee shop that sells a tasty range of Thai and Western food. The cafe offers free wireless Internet access. In the room you'll have to pay so it's worth popping downstairs for a coffee if you want to work online.
    Bit of a billing problem at check-out. See "Unique Qualities", below.

    Unique Quality: For the price, the location is very good and the staff are quite friendly.
    One thing to watch out for is the scam though. You reserve the room online using your credit card and, as is usual on check-in, they take a deposit using the same card. But on the guest registration slip there's a little note that says "Payment by credit cards are not accepted. However in dire need this facility may be authorized, on surcharge of 5%". When you check out they try to pull this one. I argued with them because there's nothing on the website about this and of course they've already used my card twice (and they have an "American Express/Visa Welcome" sign on the desk too!). After a moment or two they waived the surcharge - so do make sure you're not ripped off by this try-on.
    Apart from that, they're ok.

    Directions: Half way down Soi 22 on the right coming from Sukhumvit Road. Just past the Queens Park on the left.

More about Admiral Suites Bangkok

A most comfortable experience

by TripAdvisor Member Didimtraveller

We were picked up from the airport as arranged in a very comfortable limousine, taken to the hotel, where the staff were extremely courteous and helpful. The room was very comfortable, although the furnishings were a little tired. We had vouchers to take breakfast in the coffee shop next door, and there we could use the internet free of charge. It was conveniently situated between 2 Skytrain stations just off the Sumkivet Road, however, as these were over half Km away, if you were not able bodied, this might be a problem. Plenty of taxis around though. There was a good variety of restaurants nearby. All the main shopping areas are accessible from the Skytrain and many of the attractions too. Bedding and towels were changed everyday, the room was quiet, and although we didn't use the swimming pool or the Gym, they were available. We had a good time and would definitely use the Admiral Suites again. Excellent value for money.

Quite nice!

by TripAdvisor Member Nabokblue

I recently stayed at the Admiral Suites in Feb '08. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was spacious and clean. One thing I especially liked was that the room was exceptionally quiet. Did not hear one of my neighbors and I was next to the elevator. The sky train is a moderate walk (~10 min) and there is a very nice Thai massage place just up Soi 22. One minor negative was that there was some mold on the shower curtain. But otherwise the bathroom was fine. I would recommend the Admiral Suites to anyone needing a nice and very affordable hotel in Bangkok.

Not worth the money

by TripAdvisor Member GregoryLosAngeles

I booked a standard room on latestays.com about a week before my trip. A few days later they lowered the rate from Baht 2,300 per night to Baht 1,990 per night. When I checked in they refused to honor the lower price which I thought was pretty cheap of them.

The room was spacious and clean. It was on the main road and was fairly noisy with the tuk tuks and sirens going by on occasion. The air conditioner cut off on a regular basis, the desk people said that was a regular occurrence as they ice up. I haven't ever had that problem in a hotel in Bangkok before.

When we checked out they added Baht 100 to the bill for a broken toilet spray. I though that was a pretty cheap thing to do also.

The fitness room was ok but the three air conditioners did little to cool it off. The pool was small but sparkling clean and nice. The sauna worked fine.

The breakfast was stingy to say the least. Three choices and they seemed to begrudge even providing a glass of water. The Asian breakfast was a bowl of rice soup with absolutely nothing else. Very poor compared to the breakfast usually provided in a quality hotel.

I wouldn't stay there again although the location is fine.

Great mid-range accommodation

by TripAdvisor Member nick052

I stayed at this hotel for two nights in mid-March this year (bed and breakfast).

As far as the accommodation is concerned, I was very impressed. The rooms are really spacious, with a kitchen, huge bed, lovely bathroom and air conditioning. The air-con was quite a noisy model, and not as effective as it sounded. I also had a balcony but did not use this as the view was not great - see photo. The curtains were blackout ones and worked really well.

The location of the hostel is excellent - just off Sukhumvit Road and great for exploring central Bangkok. The nearest BTS station is about 10 mins walk away if you walk fast. The road outside is relatively busy, and there were lots of dogs barking throughout the night.

The staff were extremely courteous and spoke good English. My room was cleaned on a regular basis, and the doorman always rushed to open the door, and apologised if he did not get there in time!

The breakfast was in the cafe next-door and was quite minimalist although tasty. You also get free internet as a customer. Draught beer is cheap here at 1GBP. I did not eat at the Japanese restaurant.

Everything included, I paid 88GBP for my stay, and the rate I got at the time of booking was acknowledged. The only thing that makes me feel this was a little expensive was the airport transfer - I paid 20GBP for this, and whilst the car (not a UK style limo) was very comfortably air-conditioned (and it was nice to get picked up at the airport), the taxi back to the airport the week after cost me only £8. I guess 44GBP per night (inc transfer) is still less than UK hotel prices!

The rooftop outdoor swimming pool was excellent and got lots of sun. Every time I used it, nobody else was in, so it was like a private pool. A lot of reviews say that the pool doesn't get used much, but I don't understand why. The gym was adequate.

All in all, if you want something better than a hostel, but not the extortionate prices of some nearby luxury hotels then this place is definitely recommended. The only advice I would provide to the hotel is to consider reducing the 1200THB cost of airport transfer to something more reasonable.

Great Place to Stay

by TripAdvisor Member wtraveler_8

I have not been to Bangkok in a few years. I was looking for a nice reasonably priced place to stay. The Admiral Suites was just that. Rooms were kept clean. What I like in a room when I travel is an in room safe. All the rooms there have in room safes. When planning my next trip to that area I will stay here again

Admiral is great

by TripAdvisor Member BthereCthere

We were at the admiral between 5th and 19th April 2008. I can't say enough thanks to the girls on reception, their help was excellent at all times. The admiral suite is about ten minutes walk from Phrom Pong sky train station and Emporium shopping mall. We had a one bedroom apartment which contained microwave, fridge freezer, cooker, a television in the sitting room and another in the bedroom, video, dvd and hifi. We had free internet access and free breakfast from the cafe next door which also did a fine selection of Thai and Western food the steak sandwich there was delicious. Besides this there were a number of other restaurants bars and clubs along the street some less that five minutes away that also served great food. There is a Family mart just next door for basic food items. If you felt the need to cook Carrefore and Tesco Lotus both less than 50 baht by taxi or walking distance if you can stand the heat hold everything from fruit and veg to meat, There is also a supermarket in the emporium. The staff were always ready and willing to serve no matter what time we called down to them, they had helpful information on transport and such to get around. and even helpfully printed out a map of the river boat routes for us. The room is cleaned daily, towels changed floors mopped. there is a laundry room in the hotel if you fancy doing it your self but for just a few baht you can have your laundry washed ironed and folded by the lovely women at the laundry across the street. The hotel also allows you the use of utensils cutlery crockery glasses ironing board and iron to name a few.
