"Nice little hidden hotel"
Nice conversion of old building to hotel. Rooms on small side. Tucked away in small cul de sac so taxi may not know where it is. Kind of long walk from BTS station back to hotel especially in the heat.

Room and facilities are well maintained except small bugs. The pool is not so big but very comfortable and good place to hang out with your love one. The staffs are friendly and helpful but communication in English is a little tough with them when the thing is complicated. Overall we enjoyed the stay and we'll come back the hotel to have their signature pancakes!!

"Not Bad but Why Stay There"
The hotel and room facilities are all new and modern. Seems like they try to create a lush oasis hidden in a dead-end street amidst old trees in the middle of a messy neighborhood. But I don't understand why any hotel would use locks that require doors to be slammed shut. I was given a room next to Housekeeping, when I had asked for a quiet room, and had to endure constant door slamming in the morning when I wanted to sleep late. One morning, I counted the door slamming at least 6 times within half hour. When a door is slammed, the walls rattle. The hotel is a 5-10 min. walk from the nearest subway station, but you'd have to negotiate two highway offramps, rough roads, taxis, tuk tuks... along the way. The hotel offers a tuk tuk service but it only drops you off 100 m. from the subway which the driver emphatically pointed out to me.

"Hidden Gem"
We had an incredible, faultless stay from beginning to end. The room makes very clever use of the space and the bed, pillows & bedding are incredibly comfortable. The complimentary bathroom products smell divine. The made-to-order breakfast is very fresh & delicious (particularly the Avo on Toast with Chilli Salt & Balsamic Glaze) & is supplemented by a great buffet selection of fresh fruits, pastries, salads, cheeses, cereals & juices. We also had dinner at the hotel one night, which was delicious. The atmosphere is very enjoyable & the whole space is incredibly well designed & decorated. The rooftop saltwater pool is fantastic & the gym is really well appointed, considering the hotel's boutique status. There is a wide variety of English language TV options (including HBO & several movie channels). It's really central, too. A short walk to the Nana or Phloen Chit BTS stations & only 2 stops from Siam, where there is excellent shopping & countless options for food. The staff are incredibly friendly & helpful, without being obtrusive. It really felt like a 5 star experience.

"Ad Lib? I will do it everyday ! Well done!"
Overall I would say good and one should not complains it was dollar sign worth it. Would i go back again? Yes, I would. I am only sadden because there must be a lack of staff to maintain the beautiful concept and comfort of the hotel. My biggest concern is an 8 month old hotel and the bathroom is starting to look worn out and mouldy in certain areas, taps not working and housekeeping extremely slow. But thankfully the Thai people have not let us down because they still try very hard to keep the ambiance warm and welcoming, bravo!

Breakfast is phenomenal, make sure you don't miss the brekky wrap and big breakfast. Staff is generally nice but service could be slow sometimes maybe because they don't understand us fully? (not sure about that) Decor is super nice, exactly what we want. Minimalistic and cozy. Bed is as plushy as you wish. However toilet sink is not as clean as we hope for and the walk from the nearest BTS can be quite dark and feels dodgy along the alley at night. Will definitely stay there again! Recommend to anyone with this budget!

Great hotel in a great location. More of a boutigue hotel as not large which i liked and with great clean facilities. The grounds are well looked after and the decor is modern and very clean. The room is nice and clean although small but comfortable. Basically found the photos to be a true representation of the hotel which is great. Location is great and close to the train network which is a stop or two away from the major shopping centres or a 15 to 20 min walk. Highly recommend and will be back next time in Bangkok!

Nice, stylish boutique hotel close to ploen chit station and shopping malls. Its tucked away from the main road so its quiet and not too chaotic outside. Breakfast was very good, it includes a buffet and choice of entree from menu. The decor and ambience is very stylish and relaxing. I am travelling with my 19 month and husband, the staff were very welcoming and patient with my toddler. The pool is perfect for a cooldowm, and thegym is well equiped.

Couldn't have been more happy with our hotel choice for our 3 nights in Bkk. Location wasn't the greatest but at least there was a shuttle service to take you out to the closest BTS. Decor of the entire hotel from the lobby / restaurant to bedroom was just so picture worthy. Staff were all very helpful and cheery. Great experience and definitely would recommend it.

"Rad hotel!"
A friend recommended Ad Lib to us and it did not disappoint. #1. Location is great, an easy walk from the SkyTrain (so you can catch the train to the airport and save yourself some time waiting in traffic) and Sukhumvit Road for shopping. Two 7 Elevens are on the street and lots of food options too. #2. Great facilities. We stayed in a regular room and it was comfortable, clean and modern. We loved it. The pool area is really nice too and everything seems clean and new. #3. Restaurant/bar is top notch. Breakfast is really good and made-to-order. Pair that with their barista made coffee and you've got me sold. They have a BOGOF Happy Hour from 4:30-6:30 and we enjoyed the food we ate one night for dinner. All in all, the atmosphere is lovely so it's nice to sit around and enjoy a meal. #4. The staff are friendly and helpful. We can't wait to go back!

"Hidden gem in Bangkok!"
We adore this hotel!! Lovely and smartly designed hotel, utilizing space brilliantly. The neighborhood, although is in prime location, is also a little sketchy. But you wouldn't feel a bit of this in the hotel. We had our own car so commuting wasn't a problem, I am not too sure how easy it is to reach the BTS though. We have high standard in food and must say Ad Lib surprises us pleasantly. Staff are extremely helpful and nice! Room was a nice however perhaps we are on ground floor level (?) the ceiling seemed a little too low. Also the sink was not properly clean. But these do not affect my rating in the hotel.

Overall it was a pleasant experience. The excellent customer service by the staffs was the point that add values to this hotel. Good morning breakfast. Worth for the money. The room was comfortable, small yet everything is enough. The only bad experience was out of electricity in the midnight and it was so hot and we could do nothing with it. The shuttle service to the BTS would be better if they could pick us up from the BTS as well. I must really say the staffs are really very good. 5 star service.

"우리 가족에겐 완벽했던 호텔!"
갑작스럽게 성수기에 부모님을 모시고 여행을 갔습니다 :) 전체적으로 제가 생각했던 것 이상으로 좋았습니다. 호텔 규모는 작지만, 작아서 오히려 더 서비스 받는 느낌이 들었습니다. (하지만 성수기라 그런지 가뜩이나 작은 풀을 이용하기란 조금 힘들었습니다.) 특히 객실 상태나 모든 시설이 청절했고,직원들 모두 밝은 미소로 맞이해주고 항상 친절했습니다. 조식도 고급스럽고 맛있어서 매일 아침 부모님과 조식을 먹으러 갈때 기분 좋았네요ㅎㅎ 분위기도 좋고~ ㅎㅎ 호텔에서 휴식을 취하는 경우도 많았는데 그때마다 이용한 레스토랑과 카페의 가격은 좀 비쌌습니다 ㅠㅠ ㅎㅎ 하지만 정말 맛있었어요! 지하철 위치는 애매하다고 했지만, 걷는 걸 좋아하는 저희 가족들에겐 가깝고도 좋았습니다~ 태국에 자주 여행 가는데, 방콕에 다시 가게 되면 다시 묶고 싶네요 :)

"Hidden pearl in the middle of everything!"
Ad Lib is a hidden pearl located in the middle of everything. I spent to nights on a roundtrip in Thailand and I must say the two nights spent in Ad Lib was very, very good. I had the Plush version of the rooms that gave som extra benefits (ex. getting free tickets to the BTS skytrain, complimentary cocktails, free Samsung phone, sodas in minibar and more). The room, the excellent beds (and linen) was way above expected standard compared to rates. The staff was helpful, kind and very professional. I made use of the gym (small, but with top notch Technogym equipment), the small rooftop pool and also enjoyed excellent cocktails in the bar (the bartenders know what they are doing). The room was very clean when I checked in and housekeeping during my stay was excellent. I can also recommend the laundry service (especially if you have the plush room, because you get some of the items laundered free of charge). I never got to test the restaurant I´m afraid, mostly because I had pre-booked with other establishments prior to my stay in Bangkok. All in all - my experience at this hotel was way above my expectations!! This hotel is highly recommended, and I am definitely coming back the next time I am in Bangkok! Kudos to management and staff..
