"Good Spot to Land"
Down a quiet dead-end alley, Tarntawan Place was a decent place to stay for a couple of nights. Accommodations were basic, but well-located. Just a few minutes walk to the BTS station, a night market, a couple of gay nightlife alleys, and the current political protest area (not an issue but avoid if you don't like crowds). The Thursday eve manager's […] reception was a nice way to meet fellow travelers. OK cooked breakfast available all day. Service was friendly but ultimately not very helpful due to English limitation of most staff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Warm and Friendly Place to Stay"
Tarntawan Place is a simple setting on an incredibly lively street. I arrived earlier than expected - about 2 am - after a very long trip from the USA, east coast. I was greeted warmly by the few staff on duty. Because I was not due to check-in until 3 pm, I offered to pay for the extra night and was given the same discounted rate I found on hotels.com. […] The Deluxe Surawong room was simple, spacious and very clean. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast included fresh fruit, bread, eggs, yogurt. More than enough for me. The incredible hospitality - that caught me off guard when I entered the hotel - carried over during my 3 night stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Room But ......."
The room was comfortable and clean. The toilet took 3 flushes to clear. The Wifi was very weak in the room but strong in the lobby. Hotel people had no suggestions. While I was in the lobby 4 other people came down to complain about the Wifi.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Staff, Good Location"
Great, warm staff at the hotel. Nice breakfast with buffet for fruits & breads & juices, cooked breakfast also. Great location near Patpong Night Market.The hotel decor is a bit dated, the lighting in the rooms not great. But overall decent value with top-notch helpful staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was nice and helpful. We will stay there again. A bit dated but kept clean. Lady at the bar/restaurant was very helpful. the front desk peeps were nice too. The location was close to bts, mrt, night market, bars, dining etc. we took public transportation a few times and felt very safe. Many of the wats are within cab distance. Staff can help with […] tours. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"excellent choice - location, location, location"
Excellent location, and very affordable. The staff are really attentive and friendly. This hotel was recommended by a local guide as a gay friendly hotel and I would recommend it. Not a 5 star hotel but a smaller boutique hotel with a 5 star service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Like Coming Home"
I love this hotel. The staff at the Tarntawan make this hotel what it is. They are professional and efficient, but they always give you a sense that you belong there (and they are happy about it). The location is terrific, only a short walk from the Night Market and many of the gay bars and clubs. Yet, the hotel is set off the main road just far enough […] away from the hustle and bustle to give you a sense of calm and respite the moment you walk into the courtyard. It is not the Ritz Carlton. Many of the furnishings are showing their age (and a little charm). But it's clean and quiet and safe. And, most importantly, you will feel like it is your home away from home.

"Business and Pleasure"
The location is excellent. However, the cleanliness and the breakfast is much to be desired.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Its a great location if you want to be in the patpong area.its close walk to all the gay bars and no need to get in a cab for that. The hotel staff are so nice and if you have any problems they will get it fixed. The staff will take great care of all your needs and let you know what cabs and other things should cost, just ask.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly, friendly and friendly"
Have stayed here on and off, short and longterm for many years. Staff's kindness and unwavering willingness to help are the main factors to return here again and again. An elaborate breakfast buffet nourishes for the better of a whole day. Rooms are large, AC adjustably working, all amenities are plentiful. Decor and furniture might be ready for an […] update. Location in Patpong is a matter of personal preference, but skytrain and subway can get you anywhere you want in short time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good value, Excellent Staff"
I just stayed for one night but it was enough experience to make me return the next time I'm in BKK. Pretty decent hotel for mid-budget travelers. The staff is friendly. Security is guaranteed. Location is within easy access to night market, BTS, foot massages even street food! The room needs updating though. The bed is a little bit uncomfortable to […] my liking and the bathroom needs a little sprucing up. However, the friendliness of the hotel staff is a plus. I like the idea of the room providing guests with umbrella. It was raining when I was in BKK and the available umbrella sure comes in handy! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location closed to train station"
I stayed here for 4 days and was totally satisfied. I was staying alone. As it's near both MRT, BTS, you are ready travel the most of destination in Bangkok.

"Reliable Hotel in Patpong"
Well run establishment with friendly staff.Buffet breakfast was not very exciting.My room had a much stained carpet but otherwise was acceptable for the cost, which was lower because of the wet season.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything is fine. But compared with other hotels, the breakfast is very stereotype. That means it offers limited choice of foods. It does not have salad. Either u take western sausage/egg/bread or thai fried rice/noodle. I dont mind to stay again in this hotel, but definitely I will not commit myself to its breakfast. Also for the time being I will […] try other hotel with greater foods.Oh the mineral water is not FOC too. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

I love this place, they serve you warm service in a lovely hotel. The brekfast is served for 24 hrs depend on your time which is very good.

"Nice hotel in cul de sac"
The room was big, a bit datet in decor but big , the bed was also very big and had tree pillows the bed would fit four people easily. Being next to patpong road and silom i think the hotel caters to a lot of tourist who come here not to visit the sites....The bed was very soft and was uncomforable and the pillows were very high and firm. Almost like […] they where filled with air. During the night i got up and took a towel from the bathroom to use as a pillow. I did't bother to ask the staff to change the pillows since we were staying here for one night only. We asked for a restaurant to eat a vegetarian meal for this is suprisingly a problem in Bangkok. And they send us to Indian hut, but not before they called in advance if a vegetarian meal was a problem, and arranged for a taxi to pick us up. Great service and great restaurant they send us to. The breakfast was fine.. Not very elaborate but fine they serve breakfast all day. They have a fully packed minibar and al kind of other things are for sale at the room that one might need there, like condoms. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Ein ruhiges und zentral gelegenes Hotel mit sehr freundlichem Personal. Das Frühstück ist nicht üppig aber ausreichend und lecker - nicht nur westlich auch Thai-Frühstück erhältlich.

立地が良く、観光などには便利なホテルですが、ホテル内の設備はやや貧弱。特に衛生設備に問題があった。水圧が低く、シャワーの調整や便器の洗浄フラッシュが十分機能せず、とても苦労した。内装がかなり古くなっているのが、ちょっと残念。料金は、立地から言って、まあこの程度かなと感じました。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
建物や什器備品・設備の古さは否めないが、宿泊料の安さからは十分であり、足回りの利便性はそれに優った。 エントランスに繋がる隣家が改築中で玄関前に工事車両が陣取り レストランも埃っぽかったのはしかたのないところか。 清掃も行き届いており ベッドメークも適切な時間に行ってもらえた。 深夜の到着・出発にも係わらずレセプションも迅速に対応して頂き 再度の利用も約束して帰国した。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
地図と場所がズレていると思います。パッポン通りを抜けて左に曲がり、少し歩きます。 ホテルの入口は大きな通りから少し奥まっ所です。通りを挟んで向かい側が豪華なホテルです。 建物は古いですが、設備には全く問題ありませんでした。シャワーも普通の音圧でお湯も出ます。 ベッドは少しバネが面白かったです。 ベルキャプテンとベルボーイの笑顔が素晴らしく非常に癒されました。Genuine Expedia guest review
"Loistava sijainti ja edullinen hotelli"
Kaikki hotellissa oli erittäin hyvää.. Ainoa asia mikä häiritsi välillä oli hotellin vieressä oleva suuri rakennustyömaa. Palvelu toimi erinomaisesti ja sijainti on mitä parhain. Suosittelen hotellia kaikille.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
3泊してきました。 エレベーターが一つしかありませんので、すこし待つことがあります。 日本語は不可です。英語での対応となります。 スタッフの方はロビーを通ると必ず笑顔であいさつしてくれるのでとても気持ちがいいです。 客層は、中国人・アラブ系・日本人と多国籍です。 以前のレビューで朝食時に座ると勝手に出てきてノーチェックとの記載がありましたが 現在は、ルームナンバーを確認されます。 朝食は、タイ風・日本風・アメリカ風・ナチュラルと4種類から選べます。 その他で、簡易的なビュッフェがあります。ナチュラルはビュッフェのみですので何も出てきません。 部屋は木目調のきれいな部屋です。 バスルームは少し古くさい感じです。 困ることはありませんでした、バスタオルを3つに増やして欲しいとスタッフの […] おばさんにお願いしたらちゃんと対応してもらえました。 ６Ｆの部屋でしたが、隣のビルしか見えず眺めは期待できません。 繁華街が近いので遊ぶには最適です。 駅までが少し遠いので、移動はタクシーメインになります。 入口が分かりにくいのです。サイアムヘリテージホテルの裏になるのでパッポン側から歩いてきてサイアムヘリテージを過ぎると次のｓｏｉで看板が掛かっています。 ホテル施設をあまり利用しない泊まり重視であれば問題なく満足できると思います。 Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"as good as ever"
03/10/14 oldFordfan London, United Kingdom
...just back from a total of 9 nights at the Tarntawan (3 x 3 nights as travelling. I always stay here (Surawong room upgrade worth it!) and in the havoc of Bangkok very quiet down a short soi but literally paces from Silom and all it offers What I always like is the cleanliness (linen changed every day) , the amazing staff-they remembered me from previous visits - and the good value for money for where it is. If you want glitz and glamour then go elsewhere-but if you are after comfort, top good location, security, freedom and value for money look nowhere else. Talking to other guests they feel the same way-some there for weeks at a time. Chatting to the general manager (who often has breakfast with everyone else and very approachable) added that like most hotels they have been affected by the recent troubles but the Tarntawan had faired a lot better as they have such a strong customer base....need I say more !! Already working on my next visit
"A Hidden Gem in Bangkok"
03/04/14 TomboPerth Perth, Australia
I took a chance booking this hotel that I found online, the reviews were good so I went for it. I am so glad I did! What a perfect place to stay in bustling Bangkok The hotel is located at the end of a cul de sac off a main road, my taxi driver from Pattaya did have a little problem finding it, but we did. Despite it being my first visit, I was greeted like a long lost friend, so nice, so professional. At checkin you are given a Key pass card, so you can be identified when asking for your key, so you don't have to lug your key around and risk loosing it. Within minutes of going into the room I was given a complimentary drink and a piece of fruit with a welcome card from the Manager, a very nice touch. I was also given some hotel business cards with my name and "In Residence" printed on it, so if you got lost all you needed to do was give it to a taxi driver to get you safely back to the hotel. My room was a "Sarawong Suit" on the 5th floor. It was very well appointed, HUGE bed, lovely spacious bathroom, flat screen TV, Free WIFI, and coolest electronic control panel on the side of the bed which had controls for all the lights, privacy button and air conditioning controls. What did surprise me is that in the middle of a bustling city the room was so quite, as a light sleeper, I slept like a baby on that huge bed. The complimentary breakfast was really nice, a mixture of eggs, bacon or sausages etc and fruit etc In the evening I enjoyed a nice meal and drinks at very reasonable prices. Security was excellent, visitors were allowed albeit they were checked with ID before allowed to the room. There plenty of night clubs, both gay and straight, many restaurants, Night Markets and a huge shopping centre all near by. The hotel is Gay friendly which is so nice to be treated with respect and dignity. Whist the hotel does not have a pool, they do have an arrangement with another hotel to use theirs, how cool is that! I would highly recommend this hotel, it is superb but at a reasonable rate as well. I will be back there soon as I am already planning my next trip there and would not stay anywhere else.
"Pretty Average Haunt"
02/28/14 JimofOttawa Ottawa, Canada
I think I would actually give it a 3.5 star if that was an option, but in this case I will round up. Excellent location helps this top this place. Had the 2 bedroom suite which is huge by today's hotel standards and the both rooms were perfectly good. Odd to have 7 telephones in the day and age when everyone uses mobile. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is average at best. For a really great breakfast buffet Le Meridien across the street is 100 times better. I can see why a lot of people use this hotel as a regular base for Bangkok. It's comfortable, secure and reasonably priced, but nothing special. Would consider a return stay.
"Good location with smart add-ons"
02/23/14 WinnieFamDorde Sydney, Australia
I booked this hotel for two separate nights this month because of the awesome reviews I have read here in tripadvisor. Unfortunately, it was not as good as I expected (I am starting to think it's because I look like a Southeast Asian teenager (and they probably think I am Thai) even though I came from Sydney), check-in was impersonal (without the welcome drink) and the service is meh. Some comments: - The location of the hotel is awesome, near Silom but not necessarily on the noisy side of things. It is near Tawan(*wink wink*), and within walking distance to all the night spots in Silom/Surawong. - All day breakfast is good, but what is included in the complimentary breakfast never really satisfied me. Breakfast is some bread, some sliced Papaya/watermelon/melon, some ham, cheeses, and muesli. Anything aside from these that you'll order from them, you have to pay a premium. It would have been awesome if they at least have some fried rice/noodles/sausages which would have made us full and ready for the day ahead. - We had breakfast there twice, and I have never seen the breakfast staff smile (I even felt a somewhat condescending stare from one of them, probably wondering what a seemingly asian teenager is doing on their hotel). - I did like the cards they gave us when we arrived. They were cards with our name and the hotel's address printed out in English and Thai. Very convenient when you need to take a taxi back to the hotel, you can just show the driver the card. - I think they would treat repeat customers well. When we went back for our second stay, they gave us a room upgrade. Will we stay here again? Probably. But we'll just get breakfast from the stalls on the street. Breakfast isn't their strongest suit.
"A City Oasis"
02/15/14 brazil44 Ft. Lauderdale
This was our first trip to Bangkok and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Our arrival was at 0030hrs yet we were still greeted promptly by smiling staff. Shortly after checking in, two glasses of lemon grass tea were delivered to our room. What a nice touch. The room was large, comfortable and functional. Same for the bathroom. Towels were replaced each day, along with soap, shampoo and complimentary bottles of water. A great feature of this hotel is that is sits off the main street so we never had a problem sleeping. The breakfast features selections of warm dishes (you must try the fried rice with fried egg on top AND the pancakes) or you may choose from a variety of fresh fruits, cereals and bread. What really left an impression with us was the hotel staff. Each person we came in contact with provided outstanding service. We felt they appreciated our business and went out of their way to make us comfortable. We are already planning our next trip and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.
"A breath of fresh air"
02/08/14 Filiae L Hanoi
I recently stopped over in Bangkok and stayed at Tarntawan Place. The hotel itself was well above my expectations, and all the staff members I encountered were very patient and helpful. A few days later, I was further pleasantly surprised when I received an e-mail from the hotel's director thanking me for filling in the guest questionnaire before I left. I had noted two shortcomings--a bedspread that needed a wash and the taxi to the airport organized by hotel staff attempted to rip me off. The director indicated he had instructed housekeeping to rectify the bedspread issue and, after identifying the taxi driver in question, banned him from collecting any other guests from Tarntawan Place. He was also very apologetic for both, although the taxi driver's bad behavior was not his or his staff's fault. It really is encouraging to see a business not only excel at customer service in the first instance but also be open and receptive to feedback, which it then takes seriously and actions. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, and the director's e-mail was the 'icing on the cake', so I will certainly be back next time I am in Bangkok.

This hotel was probably the cat's meow way back in the 70s and 80s and still retains alot of it's "Tiki Mad Men" era charm. The room was large and comfortable. I really liked he pre-internet control panel by the side of the bed that controls all of the lights as well as the Do not disturb light. HOWEVER, the carpet was really stained - They should be ashamed that they have not replaced it. Way beyond it's expiration date and should be an easy fix. Easy to get a great nights sleep here and there were plenty of in room amenities to take advantage of Service was always professional and polite. Breakfasts (24hr!) were always fantastic. I did have a couple of other meals here and went with the server's reccomendation and was not impressed at all. Bland food in Bangkok? Don't be lazy like me, go out a few steps and get a great meal. Despite some of the minor glitches, I would definitely come back here
01/14/14 Terry H Minneapolis, Minnesota
The Tarntawan is my very favorite hotel to stay in Bangkok. I have been staying there for many years now and always feel like I am going home. I have stayed in many hotels around the world and have never found a more efficient or friendly staff anywhere.The upgrades that are evident in the public areas and the guest room I stayed are significant. In room safes, WiFi, new carpet as well as a great mattress were all pluses! The 24 hour breakfast is another great convenience. It is great food - FAST with a large selection of items to choose from. I have no idea how they do that, but I love it. Tarntawan continues to be a very welcoming Hotel!
"Great choice for Silom/Suriwong area"
01/10/14 mmcgow Bristol, United Kingdom
Stayed at Tarntawan again after a gap of a few years. The hotel has upgraded and improved the rooms considerably which were feeling pretty tired and grubby on my previous stay. Same excellent service and friendly staff, rooms are clean and better equipped with free WiFi. Location is fairly quiet and excellent if you want to sample the attractions of Patpong and a short walk to the Sky Train (and MRT) means shopping at Siam or a trip on the river is easy. Many good places to eat within walking distance. Will definitely go back
"Good Value, Great Location"
12/28/13 doctordonn Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
The Tarntawan is one of my favorite places to stay in Bangkok. The location is right on Surawong Road, close to the night-market (and red-light district) on Patpong Road and a short walk to Silom Road, the MRT (subway) and BTS (skytrain). The location in a small alley makes the place quiet with a homey feel despite being in a very busy area. The staff are super-friendly and always ready with a warm welcome for return guests. It's definitely a gay-friendly hotel and the clientele reflects that fact, but non-gay guests and families would also be welcome and comfortable here. Other pluses: free internet, good-sized rooms, and best of all, breakfast is included and available all-day long.
