Good hotel, but nothing fancy.

Great location if you want chinatown.
we only stayed for one night as we were travelling onto chiang mai the next day. on arrival the reception was attentive and efficient, the bags were looked after quickly and without fuss. the room looked a little tired but was acceptable, and the view was quite good overlooking the river. the restaurant was fully booked when we arrived, but they squeezed us onto a small table which was ok. the meal was good but not as "thai" as we had hoped (more international). the restaurant experience was a little disappointing as we thought that it was a rotating restaurant, so that we could cover the full vista of bangkok whilst eating. the restaurant, at least while we were there, did not rotate. the staff were generally friendly and efficient, but the hotel seemed to us to lack personality, maybe because there was a lot of to-ing and fro-ing around the reception/entrance area much of which did not appear to be caused by guests. internet access in the room is ridiculously expensive, and if you take advantage of the free usage in the reception area it is very slow. if you want to spend the time in bangkok in the chinatown area then this hotel would be fine.
Shopping Tip: Do not accept Tuk-Tuk driver offers of 40 Baht round trips to anywhere, this is a scam that wastes your time (an hour at least)looking and declining goods you don't want and at inflated prices. In addition, the drivers seem to get annoyed when they don't make their commission (so called petrol vouchers)and start to drive recklessly, which encourages you not to take the return trip with him whenever you get to your real destination. There are many of these drivers outside the hotel.

Was four star....

Grand China is in a great location in Chinatown, which is such an interesting place to stay.
great location and impressive service and lobby downstairs. once upstairs though things are looking a bit tired. our family suite was spacious enough, though the bedrooms were only separated by a passage rather than doors. the interior is very dark so the lights needed to be on in the kids section all the time. we had to call a technician had to come and fix the telly and paint was peeling off the architraves. the hot water wasn't working when we arrived (though the manager said that was a first in his 10 years of service at the hotel) so we didn't get a shower until day 2, and they were then hot and strong. breakfast was great - huge selection to please everyone and the service was very attentive. we felt the price we paid was a bit steep for the state of the room.

Great location, but showing some wear

24hr. Check in
i booked this hotel because it was 24hrs, and my flight arrived at 1am. the location is exceptional-right in chinatown. rooms are clean and spacious, but definitely dated and lacking in character.

hotel with flexibility and good service

Excellent location within Chinatown, within walking distance to the wholesale market. I had my room upgraded to a deluxe room, spacious and cozy and neat; ideal for meeting people. Dining at the hotel's restaurant was unforgettable as they serve delicious Peking Duck, grilled jumbo prawns, fried prawn rolls which was great. Except for the poor traffice at times, travelling by tuk-tuk or taxi to various places like Platinum Mall, Siam Paragon is easy. Transport fare was also reasonable. Night scene along the streets was unbelievable as many tourists gathered for awesome food like sharks' fins, seafood and its local delicacies.
Restaurant Tip: Go for the Peking Duck and Grilled Jumbo Prawns - a must try !
