Lonely Planet review
Tucked back in the crook of the soi, this friendly high-rise is mainly a long-term hotel but lots of dailies cycle through after striking out elsewhere. Rooms are a decent size but the cheapest are almost devoid of natural light, and the bathrooms we saw had showerheads mounted at about navel height. Your comings and goings will be announced by a collection of chirping caged birds.
Our independent authors have visited Pathumwan House and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Bangkok.
