Manhattan Hotel
13 Soi 15 Sukhumvit Rd, Sukhumvit, Bangkok, Thailand


A Bangkok institution, and near the Nana BTS

The Manhattan Hotel, built in the 1960s, is one of the ‘oldest’ modern hotels in Bangkok. It holds the accolade of being the hotel with the highest rate of return visitors in Bangkok. We love this - it makes the Manhattan very much the ‘Grande Dame’ of Bangkok hotels: slightly outdated, but with an undeniable stature. There is a definite old world charm to this hotel. It is not principally designed for western tourists and as such it may not appeal to all tourists. I wouldn’t necessarily describe it as ‘luxurious’ either, although for what you pay you can’t complain about the price. It is also in a great location near Nana BTS, so perfect as a base from which to see the city.

If you are here for a romantic holiday, or with your family you may be better off at the Bel-Aire Princess on Soi 5 or the Ramada Hotel & Suites on Soi 12. However, if you want value for money and you are travelling for a while and your budget is important to you then to our mind you won’t regret booking into the Manhattan Hotel.

The hotel doesn’t have a fitness room or a proper spa, although it does provide a massage service. The fitness room seems to have been under renovation for about 10 years now. The facilities are a 24 hour coffee shop, a karaoke bar, a big breakfast room, an outdoor smoking area and a Korean restaurant. We rate the breakfast here for a hotel in this price range. There is also an outdoor swimming pool with some sun loungers. The service is efficient and helpful. They speak English and a few other Asian languages. The cumulative experience of 60 years in operation shows through.

The hotel looks a bit shabby in places and the decor/furniture is outdated. However, the problems this presents aren’t enough to spoil your stay here, so long as you aren’t expecting the J W Marriot Bangkok, which is after all 4 to 5 times the price. The rooms are actually pretty good. Big beds, big bathrooms, mini bar and satellite TV. The standard room size is 28sqm. Easily big enough for a couple. The deluxe room is larger at 34sqm. They also have some one-bedroom suites with a separate living room, and a few 2-bedroom suites with separate living rooms and dining rooms.
