I walked into the hotel without a reservation and was quoted 1500 THB for a roon with a city view. The friendly gals at the front desk suggested I reserve a room useing booking.com and the price dropped to 550 THB which I thought was a bargain. The hotel doesn't look like much from the outside but the room was perfectly fine, spacious and comfortable. So, I spent two nights. There is ample parking for those who are self-driving. The hotel is situated a bit far from public transport (BTS / MRT) but plenty of city buses travel on the road in front of it. I utilized Grab Taxi to move around the city. On the plus side: there are many local style eateries and shops in the neighborhood. Asiatique is only a seven minute walk away. I would stay here again for sure.

I stayed here for NYE 2019/2020 and wanted to be near Asiatique. All the riverview area hotels were crazy expensive. The Tongtara was very reasonably priced. Especially considering it is a 7 minutes walk to Asiatique. The reception and public areas are very nice. My room was simple, but clean. The views are very nice on the riverside of the hotel. I found the staff to be fun and happy.

Nice welcome at reception. Our group of 4 Arrived very early and we were allowed into the rooms at 11am rather than 3pm.we had 2 large rooms on the higher floors with a great view of the area with a glimpse of the river.Rooms are well equipped, large comfy beds. I thought it was closer to the river than it is but it’s only a 10 min walk down the road to the river boats and night market. Good buffet breakfast. It’s hit and miss as to which receptionist is on as to who speaks good English so information can be a problem. There are no information packs in the rooms or in the foyer which is a handicap. Booked it again for our last day, great to be able to use the pool, and keep your cases in the lobby before departure.

Basically, it's all good! The location is very close to Asiatique! To take the BTS, you need to change transportation. Of course, compared to other hotels in the center of city, you can get closer to the life of local residents in this hotel location.
