Hotel Name: Retro 39 Hotel.
Address: 1, 10 Soi Sukhumvit 39, Watthana, Bangkok, Thailand.
I stayed at the Retro 39 Hotel in Bangkok. I booked online at the rate of $15.65 USD per night, and I booked for the price and location in Bangkok. This rate was cheaper than usual as I booked not long after Thailand reopened. The hotel is near Phrom Phong BTS Station, which is a central location to stay in Bangkok.
As the name suggests, the Retro 39 Hotel is on Sukhumvit 39, which denotes the number of the main road that goes off Sukhumvit Road. The numbers at the start can indicate number on the street or alleys off the street. It can be confusing, so it is best to save the hotel on Google Maps first and follow the blue dot.
The hotel is in an alley in the shadow of the BTS Station, so it is ideally situated for transport. The hotel is in a small building, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. It is above a Lawson convenience store on Soi 39, and the reception is on the other side in the alley.
It is a small reception, but it is clean and looks kind of modern, and they have a lift here.
I booked a Deluxe Room. I entered my room to find it more spacious than I imagined from the outside. It helped that the room had full width windows. The abundance of light helps make a small space look bigger.
My bed was very comfortable and the room had air conditioning (required). There is wifi in the bedroom, and I had no problem with the reception.
I like that there was equal space and bedside tables on either side of the bed, which is not always common. I like the built-in closet space with a see-through curtain, so you don’t forget anything.
The bathroom felt clean and in good condition, and it had a good hot water system.
My room looked out onto the alley that leads to the BTS Station.
There is no breakfast service here so it was out to the alley for breakfast.
Overall this was a good budget room option for the Phrom Phong area.
