Ten Stars Inn - Exterior

We stayed at Ten Stars Inn in Bangkok from Day 3 to Day 7, not really a pleasant experience… I didn’t care to take much photos about the hotel, so most of the pictures shown here are from Agoda.  PS:  Don’t let the below pictures fool you!!!

The hotel was located at 44/1-2, Soi Petchburi17, Petchburi rd., Phatathai, Pratunam, Bangkok, Thailand 10400 (Tel: +66 02-653-4979). Hotel’s location is good, less than 5mins walk to Pratunam Wholesale Market and Pantip Plaza, around 15mins walk to Platinum Fashion Mall and Airport Rail Link Ratchaprarop station. Nearby have stores, restaurants, massage, night market, so convenient. These are the only selling points that I found.

Our room was at 8th floor but lift can only reach 7th, we have to climb a level to our room. It wasn’t a big problem for us until we realized that the receptionist passed us a wrong room key, the security guard who helped to carry our luggage just walked away with the door key without saying a word, leaving both of us standing outside the room for 10mins. No choice, I went down to reception for follow up, ended up a house keeping staff holding master key helped to open the door for us. In the whole process, no one cared to approach us and offer help and explanation. Worse experiences came in the next few days, receptionists were rude, busy playing with their phone and ignoring us. They even shouted at us when we asked the same thing twice for confirmation…

The hotel is old, the room’s hygiene was acceptable, but floor was slippery and oily. Toilet was big, the floor and curtain looked dirty, what a disappointment. The TV cabinet was good, big enough for our clothes and items. Sound proof was bad, can even hear the TV sound and door opening from next door. Air conditional is cold enough for hot days in Bangkok. No free wifi.

Our room’s condition wasn’t as good as shown in the picture from website.

It has facilities like massage, snooker, café, but we didn’t try at all as all didn’t look fantastic.

I didn’t see anyone using their facilities during our stay…

Breakfast was bad, we just tried little then decided to eat else where. Well, S$46.05 for a Standard Double Room with breakfast, it was really a good price for a hotel with good location, but service was really too bad. I think there will be better hotels nearby with same price range, we will definitely not going back again!

Here is their website http://www.tenstarshotel.com/index.html, and we got the package at Agoda:

But like I said…the hotel SUCKED pretty bad.

    Thanks for the tip Alex, will be going to Bangkok end of this year and most probably will stay in Bangkok City Hotel. Was just wondering, during weekdays from Monday to Wednesday any good recommendation for floating market? I know it is really good for the weekends but i booked wrongly for my flights and only got to know the weekend floating market happenings too late.

    If can recommend some other good tips or experience, will be good too, thanks.
