"Great location and fun rooms"
There's only a handful of rooms in the place and my one was the lofted one you see in the images of the place. I arrived late one night and whilst there normally is no staff at the hotel, there was someone waiting for me when I arrived. If you get there and there is nobody around though, the hotel is owned by the same people that run the hotel on the […] opposite side of the street and also the Arun Residence at the end of the street (still just only about 60ft away). Room was very clean and tidy. For me the fact that you can we Wat Bo from your window, and are just a few feet away from a great view of Wat Arun at the Arun Residence restaurant and roof bar, it was just perfect for me.

"Great location and nice rooms"
We stayed here over Christmas and had a wonderful experience. We had some trouble getting here from the airport as the taxi stand people had no idea where this was and we did not have the phone # for the hotel. We ended up taking the train into Bangkok then getting a cab the rest of the way. My #1 tip for traveling in Bangkok is to have the address of your destination written in Thai for you or through a translation program. None of the cab drivers speak great English and they certainly can't read it. They don't know where anything is and won't make an effort to help you out. You could also tell your driver to take you to Wat Pho as the hotel is right across the street. Super location! You can get a cab or tuk tuk at a moment's notice and walk to Wat Pho and the Grand Palace. There is a big market nearby with lots of yummy food and street vendors surround Wat Pho, so there's a ton to see and do. At night, it's a little less bustling right around the hotel, but you can walk a few blocks to night time markets. Our room was quite small, but very clean and well-appointed. The shower is nice and big. The place has wifi as well. We only saw someone at the front desk area twice (upon our arrival and right before we left), but there is a sister hotel down the alley that looks to be fully staffed most of the time. Overall, a great place to stay right in the midst of a bustling part of Bangkok.
"Perfect for exploring the old city"
09/01/13 whistlerdan81 Whistler, Canada
I was in Bangkok for a flying visit and I wanted to visit the old parts of the city. This hotel has a near perfect location for this and I could see Wat Pho from my room window and Wat Arun just by stepping from the front door. I was happy to see that the excellent Deck restaurant at the Arun Residence was just a few feet from my door. My room was the one depicted in the images with the lofted bed, a really fun room that was clean and cool. The hotel does have a small cafe beneath it but it really caters for westerners who aren't feeling very adventurous...... I would stay clear of that and head to Arun Residence or Sala Rattanakosin for food nearby with stunning views of Wat Arun. Being within just a few minutes walk to the Grand Palace, a few seconds from Wat Pho and views of Wat Arun was just perfect for my trip.
"chill in classy ambience"

Was at "The Gate" the first time today and I wonder why?! Although the concept is of a snack bar with self-service, the service provided by the staff is still very efficient and forthcoming. The interior is classy and the aircondition makes it comfortable. WiFi is available. Food consists mainly of snacks like Panini with salad but Spaghetti and some light Thai dishes are on offer as well. Tea, coffee and a small selection of cakes and ice-cream (real, tasty ice-cream!) complete the otherwise small menu. Prices are very reasonable. A good place to pop in whenever near-by
"Clean Comforable Convenient Oasis"

Rooms (as a family we have experience of three different rooms). All are clean, comfortable and serviced daily! Although not over large they are perfectly adequate! Beware the stairs are quite steep, though staff are most willing to help with baggage. Staff - Jan was a very helpful person who did her utmost to make our stay successful and enjoyable, even going out of her way to get us a table at the Deck By The River restaurant when they appeared fully booked. She recommended trips and arranged for my taxi to Kanchanaburi at a discounted rate. Her colleagues were just as helpful. As Jan only works part time the staff at the Deli or at Arun Residence (along the side street) can hold keys and book you in. Situation - Just opposite Wat Pho and very close to the Grand Palace. Many tourist spots such as the museum and market stalls within easy walking distance. Parking opposite on Thanon Chetuphon is free for residents. Also convenient for ferry to Wat Arun and river boats. Dining - Deli At The Gate on the ground floor has a good choice for breakfast and snacks throughout the day. In the evening the do have some 'specials.' Several doors away at another hotel is an acceptable and reasonable restaurant. However, just along the side street is the Deck By The River restaurant at one of the sister hotels -Arun Residence. We ate here most nights. The menu choice and quality are super, though not the cheapest in Bangkok. This restaurant is on two floors and is very popular, I suggest you book the evening before. Several of our family have experienced some Bangkok hotels being very poor, but once discovered Chetuphon Gate is the one used on return visits. Thank You Jan and colleagues!!

This review is based upon a 50% discounted rate of 23eu per night. The full rate of 46eu is way to much and there are definitively better places in that price range. We arrived at night and confirmed that it was possible, however upon arrival the place was locked down with no way to get in. Luckely a local helped us out showing where a sister hotel was and eventually we got in. The next day the staff acted like nothing happened and just asked for our passports. The rooms are clean and a bit on the small side. Our room was filled with mosquitoes as the wood floors contained large holes. The location for sightseeing is great as the grand palace and some major temples are nearby. However the area is deserted during the evenings and there are no restaurants or shops nearby. The last day we asked to pay they said no need we already charged your credit card which we used for booking/reservation purposes only. We found this extremely rude. During our stay we never say someone at the reception even at check out we had to hand the keys to the restaurant staff. Overall the place was good for the price and good for sightseeing. However the bad service and nothing nearby like restaurants leaves us with mixed feelings.

clean and quite. Service is so good. i would come again because it is so easy to access in the centre area. Staffs are so friendly and helpful. However, a room I was staying ,it was quite small room but cute. and one more thing I like about was there is a cafe shop at the ground floor so it was good to have a break there.
"Temiz ve konforlu"
05/30/13 erenmode istanbul
Oncelıkle harıka personeli ,temizliği ve konforu için teşekkür ederiz.Uzun gezimizin sonunda dinlenmek için çok doğru bir seçim yaptık.Yanlış tarihe rezervasyon yapmamıza ragmen bir mail ile her şeyi duzelttiler ve çok yardımcı oldular.Sevgili Noisy muhteşemdi.Bizi çok guzel karşıladılar.Deluxe odada konakladık.Harika Wat Pho ve Wat Arun manzarası bizi çok mutlu etti.Çevresi çok sakin.Gece hayatı ve eğlence isteyenler için biraz sakin ama bizim gibi dinlenmek ve tapınaklarda vakit geçirmek istiyorsanız en doğru tercih. yeniden gideceğiz.Tek olumsuzluk oda da buzdolabı olmamasıydı.Bunu yenıden gözden geçirirlerse çok seviniriz.

"Petit hotel sympa et tres bien situe"
01/08/13 Franco I Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
Nous avons passe 4 nuits dans cet hotel en janvier 2013 encouple avec un bb de 1 an. Localisation: a 2mn a pied de wat pho et 10 minutes du palais royal. Vue sur wat pho illumine le soir tres jolie. Au bout de la ruelle vue sur wat arun. A 2mn du bateau qui permet de rejoindre le sky train 15 bath par personne. Possibilite egalement de louer un long tail pour visiter les klong mais on ne la pas fait. Nous avons pu acceder facilement et pour pas cher les centres commerciaux de mkt et siam en 30 mn environ: bateau et skytrain pour 90 bath aller retour. Pas loin de kosan road envrion 10 mn en voiture et de chinatown. Possibilite de prendre les bus publics en face de l hotel. La zone est animee le jour mais tres calme la nuit. Pas conseille aux noctambule sauf aller sur kosan road. Restauration: petit resto snack au Rdc mais pas teste. Au bout de la ruelle il y a un resto assez chic "le deck" avec vue sur wat arun. Il faut mieux reserver pour avoir une bonne table. Le soir de tres bon resto street food avec un must la fondue au porc ou au fruit de mer pour 100 bath a 2. Aller vers la direction du pier et juste apres l hotel arum d vous trouverez ces quelques tables qui paient pas de mine mais la nourriture est excellente. Attention vers 21h il n y a quasiment plus de resto ouvert. Chambres: les chambres sont un peu petite mais tres bon standing. Calme sauf si vos voisins devalent les escaliers en bois (Souvenir du premier soir). Pas beaucoup d autres expreriences a bangkok mais nois recommendons vivement surtout par la localisation qui permet d eviter les bouchons et les taxis. C qd meme beaucoup plus sympa de decouvrir bangkok en prenant le bateau ce que nous avons fait tous les jours. Ca permet aussi de visiter les temples tot le matin ou en soiree et eviter ainsi la foule et la chaleur. Un inconvenient: il ny a pas toujours du personnel de l hotel disposnible car ils travaillent sur differents hotels de la zone mais ils nous ont quand meme arranger le taxi retour a l aeroport.
