Got a king bed room, very comfortable and well designed hotel. Definitely worthy to stay extra night just to laze in and enjoy the hotel like you’re at home. Have a coffee/breakfast at their attached restaurant called Baby.

BTS Ari station is about 15 mins walk from the hotel, not the nearest but very accessible.

Had a small issue with the WC flushing water pressure but it was all fixed within mins after a call to them. Efficient service.

Gym is well equipped but I guess it’s still new which has pungent gym rubber mat smell.

Pool is perfect but it’s rather icy cold all around the clock even in the hot and dry season’s afternoon. I suppose the vinyl/membrane type of pool construction has such effects as the ground /earth beneath will always remain much cooler.

Overall, all of us are extremely happy with this hotel.

Craftsman is clean, comfortable, warm (design), stylish and affordable. All staff are lovely and spontaneously engage with customers. It is a true value for money, with beautiful, well thought out details that make one’s stay very enjoyable. Breakfast in Baby bar was delicious and healthy. I recommend this hotel to solo and couple travellers.

As soon as you climb the steps and enter the Baby restaurant at the entrance, you feel welcomed. The restaurant is open to the pool area, which is protected by the modern buildings housing the rooms.

The rooms are clean and make smart use of the space. The minimalist decor is softened by natural materials. The shower is spacious with toiletries, which are locally sourced.

The beds are comfortable with your choice of soft or firm pillows.

The restaurant has really good live music Friday nights and not too loud!The food is very well planned and executed. You can tell this place is a local neighborhood favorite.

Staff are very helpful and friendly.

New and modern hotel, where is located in a nice and clean area. Just 5 mins catch a taxi or take a bus to the nearest skytrain stations. Short walks to 7-11 and a restaurant. The staffs are very friendly and helpful. Great valued for money :)
Late check-out at 4 pm. is the best offer. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We tried to get a family room but got no response to email. Called up and they said they would get back to us but only did after 2 days quoting 330 usd a night…. We ended up booking 2 single rooms online via hotels.com as friends were already staying there…

Check-in was a poor experience. We arrived early at noon, 2 hours before the official time of 2 pm. Asked if we could check-in. We were given 3 different responses from 3 different people. It was the manager’s day off so they couldn’t possibly make a decision. Then they said they could give us a room but would charge half day room rate even though 10 mins previously no room was available…. Not a great experience so far…

當天我在其他的網站預訂酒店時出現了問題,櫃檯的員工很努力的為我提供協助,而且態度也很友善。他們每次我進出酒店時也有對我微笑和打招呼。

酒店的設施很新也很乾淨,有健身房,泳池很漂亮。整體整間酒店的氣氛也很好。

雖然酒店離BTS 車站約有十分鐘步行距離,但如果你選擇以計程車或Grab 代步的話就沒有問題。

這次我入住了兩種房型 - Studio King L 和 Studio King S。建議選擇L,房間比S大,也設有浴缸,一切都更好,價錢也不差很遠。兩種房型都很乾淨,床很舒服。King L 房型的設備比較好,King S 房型的設備還可以接受,冰箱不太夠冷。

整體來說,Craftsman 的性價比高,入住經驗也很滿意,非常推薦。

I have had some difficulties about the booking issue on other website but the staffs are very helpful and friendly to help me to tackle the problem. Warm smile every time I see them at the reception.

Beautiful , clean and new facilities. Great atmosphere from day to night.

The hotel location is not too close to the BTS train system (About 10 minutes walk) yet no problem at all if you travel around by taxi or Grab.

Tried 2 types of room. Highly recommend the studio King L. Everything MUCH better with just a little extra cost than studio King S.

Good quality of stay with good price! Highly Recommended.

I have nothing much to say about Craftsman Bangkok besides: ‘Absolutely Amazing’.

Firstly, the room was exquisite, spacious, homey, and very welcoming. But they truly exceeded my expectations when I experienced a sudden Tachycardia episode and the staff were quick to respond and managed to get me to hospital in no time. Big round of applause to the front desk, concierge, and Khun Tommy for making we feel welcomed and safe during my stay at the Craftsman Bangkok. I definitely recommend it to all!

I was stranded in Bangkok due to COVID-19 lockdowns and closure of airports. I found this hotel by chance. It did not disappoint me but rather impressed me during my entire stay. I stayed in one of their corner one bedroom apartments for three months. The room is clean, nicely designed and well appointed with everything you need, and a super comfortable bed. It is in a residential area so it is quiet enough but within a good walking distance to train stations, supermarkets and nice places to eat around the Ari neighborhood. The entire crew of staff were super friendly and helpful. It was a pleasant stay. It is definitely one of the places I would return to.

The hotel's architecture design is really good. A room is new and not too small. Staffs are helpful, you also can request the amenity which is not set in the room such as toothbrush. We got a room with a nice pool view. Only one bad thing is the car park slots of the hotel are not enough. We had to park at tge car park nearby and walked there. By the way the price is really valuable. Highly reccommend.

Craftsman is an extraordinary hotel in the Ari section of Bangkok. It's located on a quiet street with nice footpaths and trees. Staff at the hotel were exceptional, extremely kind and helpful. They went above and beyond for my wife and I during out stay. The rooms were very comfortable and modern with good wifi. The hotel is located in between the Ari and Saphan Kwai BTS stations and there are some nice restaurants within a short walking distance from the hotel. There are also a few 7-11's, within a 3 minute walk. Baby Bar bangkok is the bar/restaurant of Craftsman and that has some nice views of the pool and good food as well. Overall I highly recommend Craftsman Bangkok, excellent staff and in an up and coming area in Ari Bangkok.
