Calm within good location”
first timers in bangkok, we opted for a 4 nights stay at smile inn and ended up staying 8 nights. the hotel is located within 30 minutes walk to pretty much every main interest point in central bangkok without all the noise you find everywhere else. this is a cosy hotel with friendly staff with all the facilities we needed, including reliable wifi and laundry. as well, the place is pretty safe, clean and pretty much renovated. i would recommend you to print out the directions map for the taxi driver or simply note the phone number for him to call the hotel. it'll save you time and hassle.
Friendly and hardworking staff, authentic China Town ambience and comfortable value-for-money room.”
I had just stayed from 24 Oct to 29 Oct 2017. My experience is great, comparing to my seven other visits to different hotels in Bangkok. Next to the hotel is the famous canal that residents of Bangkok can take a motorised gondola to office/ shopping. Bus stops are nearby too, just 2 minutes' walk and from there a bus ride to mass rapid train BTS is only 5 mins. Famous Golden Mount Temple, Great Swing, Democracy monument and other landmarks and Khaosan Road are 10 -20 minutes walk, saving your transport cost and time. Staff gave valuable advise and assistance , my questions are always suitably answered. Kitchen / fridge are very helpful !!
Small hotel but good price”
I have a good moment in Bangkok thank to Smile Inn hotel. It's a small one, small room but I think it's ok for me, for a small business trip. It like just every small hotel in Europe. I checked in very late and with a great service, i can take my room in few minutes. I have necessary information that I need to visit bangkok with my tighten time. I'm very happy to comparing the price and the service. Just one thing, my room have street view and it quiet noisy.
We felt very welcome”
We have never stayed in this location in Bangkok before so we thought we would give it a go. Its not too far from the river, and pretty close to Khaosan Road. My wife was overjoyed because Bobae clothes market is 200 metres away! The staff were lovely and the rooms clean. I slept very well and the aircon was good. We were rather sorry to leave. My favourite bit was the canal we could see from our window, a real window into old Bangkok.
The Smile Inn provides a very friendly, clean, quiet and safe place to stay in Bangkok at a fair price. The staff are always courteous and helpful. The rooms and common areas are kept immaculate - far better than some top end hotels. Security is on hand when reception is closed. There is a large clothes-market nearby. On the downside, the breakfast consists of just toast, jam and coffee. The location isn't known by many taxi drivers so best print out some directions before leaving home. The surrounding area is mainly small, house-sized industrial units. To sum up, if you want a safe base to explore Bangkok this it, if you're looking for party-central best look elsewhere.
Safe and quiet location nearby the city center”
We stayed in November 2012 at Smile Inn. After booking i notified the hotel in an email we would arrive after midnight due to our flight schedule (1.30am); there was a quick answer (plus!). We chose this hotel because of its quiet location (not khao san area, but thanon damrong rak) and its proximity near the old city center. The checkin was quick enough (despite the night guard had to wake up the receptionist). There is a 1000THB deposit. Our room was at the first floor: no outside traffic noise coming in. There is key card security and a night guard so we felt safe in this location. The breakfast is best to be skipped (a few slices of bread, instant coffee can be used at the ground floor in lobby area), outside within 5 minutes walk you have access to several good thai breakfast options for low prices (35thb for rice with chicken + chicken broth). We had to ask the reception to clean the sheets and towels, we had the feeling the cleaning of the rooms could be a bit better. The water from showering drained very slow. You can do laundry + drying in a room behind the reception desk (need some 10thb coins for that) Upside: quietness (nearby Golden Mount, nearby Khlong Sean Seab express boats for going to shopping malls like MBK), friendly staff, convenient room. Downside: room cleaning not spot on, reception not always staffed, breakfast looks totally uninviting (but outside plenty options: streetfood stalls offering breakfast for 30-40THB). Hotel is difficult to find for taxi drivers even when showing the offered map... should really stress out to them "Bo Bae tower", and even sometimes assisting them (we had laptop with gps with us ). Despite it was not 100% perfect, we loved this place!
Lovely boutique hotel.”
We stayed 4 nights at Smile Inn. Could have made it longer if not for further travel plans. A very nice place to stay, with free wifi, complimentary breakfast, and super helpful and friendly staff.
Great budget hotel, like new and clean room”
We re-booked at this hotel and stayed an extra couple of nights from our previous stay. Still it did not disappoint. Great service as usual, thanks Smile Inn!
Smile Inn is a gem! The hotel is clean and modern. For the price it’s definitely well worth it.
Pleasant and Clean”
I stayed here one night while working at a site nearby. The rooms are clean, and large for the price range. I live in Bangkok and often get a room near worksites for big jobs so I have a pretty good idea what a room in this range should look like. I did not explore the facilities, as I had to get back to work, but the internet worked flawlessly. Only caveat: get a street side room if you're a light sleeper, the commuter boats start running on the canal behind the hotel at 6 am.
Rooms were very comfortable, with AC, big beds, toilets that work, and abundant hot water. Our room only had a few glass blocks (no windows), but the decor was so bright, we didn't really miss the windows (and it cut out a lot of the traffic noise). The Inn backs up directly onto one of the canals, and has a nice, open-air lounge space where you can relax and watch the boat traffic and Bangkok canal life go on right outside.
Staff performance wise, could be better.”
Suprisingly valued for money, clean room. The female receptionists are kinda helpful. The legendary fat guy with spec everyone mentioned in their reviews will just avoid eye contact with you, he is like a business owner or manager there, but don't even bother talk to the guests. I can understand maybe his english is poor but at least you should smile with your guests dude. Location wise, a little bit far from attractions.
Very cozy hotel for the perfect Bangkok feeling. Not far from khaosan. Very nice team!”
Very cozy hotel for the perfect Bangkok feeling. And not far from khaosan. ;) Very nice team!
Convenient,cost effective, quiet ”
I live in Bangkok. I stay here whenever I work on Krung Kasem road, and miss the traffic. I park at the worksite and walk here. Facilities are excellent for the price, always super clean, and the wifi is fast enough to binge watch Netflix.
i stayed in this hotel for only one night in transit to another city. the only problem i had was, when i booked it was advertised there would be wifi available. now as i landed in bangkok late and left early i had to make arrangements with someone over emails. but there was no wifi. problem solved the owner allowed me to use her personal
Nice room but not much else!”
If all you're after is a place to rest your head then Smile Inn is perfect and it has a good location away from the hustle and bustle but still within walking distance. However, other than a beautifully done up room the place didn't have much else to offer. The man on front desk was miserable and unhelpful and there's no where you can buy and food.
Cheap and cheerful”
Stayed at Smile inn for the night last week when we just needed a well located and cheap room for the night. Given the external appearance, I was pleasantly surprised by how clean and well appointed the rooms were. Awesome little communal area with a balcony that overlooks the river. Would definitely stay here again
Overall really good. Friendly staff, esprcially the reception.”
We ve just flew in from Zurich and we visit thailand for the first time. At the beginning I was a bit surprised the room does not look that good like in the pictures from agoda. Bit prepare for that meanwhile I know this is almost always like this when you book rooms between 500-1200 baht. It was very clean an quite. We were travelling with a 2 year old son and he could sleep very well. The AC ist not loud at all and quite new. The girl at the reception was so friendly, she helped us out with everything and answered all our questions perfectly. I had thousends of them and she didnt understand everything. But her english is still very good. Overall a really good stay. Ps. Do not pay more than 60-80 baht to Khaosan Rd.. Taxidrivers ar like bandits here ;)
Good Public Transport”
The Smile Inn is a nice destination to stay. Not far away from the MBK shopping center. You can easily take the bus to the shopping center. Its a bit far away form the good street food markets. But we really enjoyed our stay here.
Nice clean hotel, very helpful staff”
i stayed in this hotel for only one night in transit to another city. the only problem i had was, when i booked it was advertised there would be wifi available. now as i landed in bangkok late and left early i had to make arrangements with someone over emails. but there was no wifi. problem solved the owner allowed me to use her personal computer. that aside, the hotel is lovely, quite close to khao san but in a quiet area.
