    I would like to thank you and your wonderful team of staff, Rose, Wit for making a surprise birthday celebration during my stay at Ad Lib. The room upgrade was splendid, its lush and simply spectacular, it makes my stay even more special and memorable. To top up the surprise, Wit delivered a wonderful lemon cheesecake and sang birthday song. I couldn’t have ask for more. Thank you once again for contributing to the cherished memories. I will definitely recommend Ad Lib to our friends, colleagues and family, and I am sure I will be back.

    excellent service”

    Very chic hotel. All staff were very helpful and friendly. Room is clean and the bed is comfy. The only downside is that, since the hotel is located at the end of an alley, it makes it difficult to find taxi or Grab - average wait is 15 mins or more. But if you take BTS, Nana station is just around 5 mins away. If you stay in this hotel, do check out Doi Lanka coffee close by! A hidden gem serving locally grown organic coffee :)

    If the location is not the most practical, the Ad Lib Hotel is a bubble of quietness in the very center of Bangkok. The staff is great, amenities are fantastic (in particular the rooftop pool). It is a very good value for money !

    Great location, service, accommodations, and food”

    The Ad lib is, by far, my favorite hotel in Bangkok. I go 2-3 times a year to see doctors at Bumrungrad Hospital, and it's conveniently located right around the corner. it's tucked into a little corner off of Sukhumvit Soi 1, and has the look and feel of a boutique hotel, with amenities that you usually find at a bigger hotel - swimming pool, gym, and a first-class restaurant. The staff are very helpful and friendly, and greet me back every time like family. The rooms are very comfortable - clean, modern, and down-to-earth. The pool area is small but very nicely done - I like the lounges that are on a shallow ledge of the pool, the hanging chairs that rock you to sleep, and a covered area by the bar with couches and cushions for when it rains. The lobby and restaurant are welcoming, and the food is outstanding. Breakfast buffet is pricey, but well worth it, or you can order a la carte off the menu. Highly recommended.

    Good design, without gimmicks”

    The location is good, close to the BTS and next to the Bumrungrad Hospital (my main purpose of visit this time). The design is clean and simple, and the hotel is like a little village of small blocks interconnected by open corridors and stairs. Beware, some of the rooms do not have a view, and face a wall or a green wall. Which is not totally horrible, if one wants a bit more private. Being in a dead end alley way, it is all very silent, albeit 3 minutes from Sukhumvit. The restaurant has great food!

    Very, very good Biutique Hotel”

    In Asia, especially in big towns like Bangkok, it is recommended to book a five star hotel. Except you stay at The Ad Lib, wich is an Oasis in the eye of the orcan. Near Sukhumvit, Extremly good designed, easy going, quiet and green because of it‘s clever concept. The staff is super friendly and does everything for you. The rooms are comfortable and offer all yo need, there‘s a pool and a fitness, good maintained and it‘s nice to be at the lobby - inside or outside. I prefer this kind of place more than the luxury but unpersonal and cold atmosphere of the big ones. Ad Lib is really recommendable and I will stay there again when back in Bangkok in November.

    We really had a pleasant stay. The management was excellent, and we felt that all the people working at this hotel had their hearts in good place. The only disappointment is that our room smelt of toilet as you walked in. It was faint enough that once in the room for a while you forget about it, but it was strong enough to notice when you went in the room.

    Arriving late at the hotel and the entrance looks amazing throughout with its decoration and lighting. Love everything in the room ; decoration , cleanliness , comfort. Its open-plan bathroom is intimidating at first but works out very well. Not much of a view , but it’s low rise city hotel ! Breakfast is nice , sitting at open-air table. The pool is great despite its tiny size. Worth every baht !!! Highly recommended ! ** its hidden location can be hard for tourists

    Still a great place to stay in Bangkok”

    This was my third time staying at Ad Lib and stayed for 5 nights instead of the usual 2. It's a beautiful little oasis right in the heart of Bangkok. This time I spent a lot more time just hanging out by the pool and eating in the restaurant/lobby so I racked up quite a big bill by the end of my stay. Each time I ordered a drink or any food I had to sign for it immediately instead of at the end which became kind of annoying. Really not a big problem though and had a great time staying there as always.
