Hotel Name: Pinnacle Sukhumvit Inn
Address: 6/13-16 Soi Nana Nue, Sukhumvit 3/1, Bangkok, Thailand
I stayed at the Pinnacle Sukhumvit Inn in Bangkok. I booked online for the rate of $15 USD per night. While the cheapest I’ve paid for anything on Sukhumvit Rd is $10 per night, this was by far the cheapest hotel on lower Sukhumvit I’ve ever booked. I’m not sure what the usual rates are as this might have been an Agoda special, so I didn’t know what to expect when I arrived.
The Pinnacle Sukhumvit Inn is on 3/1 Sukhumvit Rd, which is a narrow side street that is known as Little Arabia. The street is filled with Middle Eastern shops and restaurants and it is mostly a pedestrian street (apart from the odd taxi that crawls its way up the street). It’s close to the Nana BTS station so it is easy to get around.
I checked into my room which was a single with attached bathroom. The bed was very comfortable with a big spring mattress.
The windows are across the whole width of the room, and in a design that betrays its age the windows open wide open. It was unusual to be in an eighth floor hotel room and be able to have the window open out.
The bathroom was clean and tidy, with the fittings looker newer than the property itself.
My shower also had a bathtub, and the shower head was one of those old ones that dispenses water in a jet stream. I was mindful that Thailand is in a draught and kept my shower time to a minimum.
The room came with a kettle and cups, but no tea or coffee (BYO).
There was a good wifi signal in my room with no connectivity issues.
Overall this was a good place to stay. The hotel looks a bit old and has aged somewhat, but it has been well maintained and kept in good working order. A great deal considering its central location.
