The location is great, just near the BTS and in the heart of the action. Breakfast is really good and the place is clean. What more could you want? It also has a great pool and spa.

Historical Traveler Reviews Nana Hotel Bangkok
The absolute pits
First impressions of the hotel are not too bad. The location is quite interesting (oppsite the infamous Nana Plaza) and the reception is ok. The staff were a little surly but not too bad.
It all goes a bit downhill on the way to the room. The corridors are dim with filthy carpets, totally uninviting. Then when you get in the room you ar ein for a shock. I had a "deluxe" room, which seemed straight out of the 70s and hadn't been cleaned since, with some very bad stains on the carpet. There was a smell of damp, the bathroom was filthy and overall it was unwelcoming and dingy. I should have checked out but was too tired. The aircon was really loud but enough to drown out the noise of the street below.
The disco in the hotel transformed into a pick up joint after 12, around the time Nana Plaza closes up. I didn't dare try the swimming pool, although quite a few men got in the lift in their swimming trunks on their way (I assume that's where they were going).
So there is nothing I can do to recommend this place. If you are looking for something close to Sukhumvit try anywhere else, even at 1700 baht it wasn't worth it, it spoiled a pretty nice trip to Bangkok. I will post photos another time to give an idea of the "experience".
Hated Nana hotel in Bangkok, unclean and shabby...
My stay lasted two nights and I left and stayed at Grace after a fight with management. Their attitude was very poor and rude. The rooms are filthy and even sheets did not feel clean. If you want to stay in that area Grace and several others are better options for cheaper prices.
Keep an eye on your credit card
We stayed at this hotel due to circumstances beyond our control, it was old & in need of renovations, the corner room we had was huge. But after arriving back in Australia we found the desk clerks had duplicated out AMEX card while we were checking in/out. If you have to stay here make sure you never let your card out out of your site.
The Nana Hotel, there is no better place in Bangkok!
I always stay at the Nana Hotel when I come to Bangkok. The air conditioned rooms are inexpensive (1100 Baht or $28US) in reasonable condition. Free bottled drinking water is provided in the room refrigerator every day. the bathrooms are clean. room service is excellent. a small tip of $2 is highly appreciated by the very friendly staff. If you are a single guy, there are plenty of "beer bars" and "go go bars" right outside. The "Angels Disco" downstairs is really rocking every night and filled with beautiful friendly Thai girls. There is a great restaurant adjacent to the lobby open 24 hours a day and serves both Thai and western food. this is a great hotel!
perfect location, the only problem is that
IS ALWAYS FULLY BOOKED
Great Location! Great Lobby! Great Restaurant! Friendly Service
I have been visiting Thailand for over 20 years. The Nana Hotel in Bangkok is by far the best value. Always friendly staff, even the dragon lady at the front counter. They seem to remember return guests. The Golden Beer Bar attached to street side of hotel is the best place to have a cool one and to watch humanity walk by. The hotel is located near some of Bangkok's night life so if you are looking for a quiet night in the country, this may not be for you. I actually go there for the sounds of the city. Yes, many of the guests are men, but I have seen all at the Nana Hotel, including families, older retired western couples, and regular tourists doing regular sightseeing tours. The Nana Hotel has a Travel Agency in the lobby. All types of transportation can be booked. The restaurant is decent and buffet breakfast comes with room. The Skytrain stops just around the corner. The rooms may not be the newest but the cleaning staff always provides a clean room daily. Laundary can be sent out from hotel room and is back ususally within 24 hours. I have never had any clothing lost. I have never had anything missing from my room. If you like to spend more money, the Marriott next door is about $150.00 + and you don't get the real "feel" of Bangkok. Yes, the rooms at the Nana are somewhat aged but fully functional. I have never had any problems with air conditioning, water, TV, or fridge in room. All in all, a good value. Take some time in the morning and just sit in one of the comfortable lounge chairs in the lobby and watch the "regulars" gather. Good conversation can be had in the lobby. Free copy of English verson of Bangkok Post provided to each room.
Good value Hotel
Stayed there last time in Bangkok. Reasonably priced and value for money. Friendly efficient staff.
Great for single males
The Nana is an excellent hotel for the money. A standard room is 1100 Baht (less than £20 per night) and yet is superior to many 3* hotels found in the UK. I have stayed there on more than 6 occasions and have never had any problems.
The Nana is situated just across the road from one of Bangkok's more notorious entertainment areas - Nana Plaza. It is therefore very popular with single males staying to enjoy the nightlife there. The hotel freely allows female 'guests' to be brought back although I noticed that they do carry out a security check on the girls ID first.
Consequently this hotel is not, in my opinion, suitable for a 'family' visit to BKK - you'd probably be better off with one of the slightly more upmarket hotels which still offer very good value for money.
However, the Nana is very well situated for easy access to the whole BKK area thanks to the proximity to the excellent Skytrain service, and is therefore a useful and economical base for a business traveller or for a stopover when travelling to and from Australia.
The standard rooms are quite spacious and air conditioned. A satellite TV is provided which mainly picks up Far Eastern channels but also US and UK news services. A phone is provided. The bathrooms appear to be a little dark but are clean and the showers always work well with copious drenchings. A fridge is in the room and is restocked with complimentary bottled water each day, and a copy of the Bangkok Post is slipped under the door each morning - a nice touch. In other words, a standard room is adequate if you are visiting BKK on your own. Safe deposit boxes are located behind reception and should always be used to keep your passport, tickets etc., safe.
The hotel has a tranquil restaurant and coffee shop where excellent Thai snacks and meals can be had, along with some limited international cuisine. There is a lounge bar which is OK if you want to sit and do a spot of 'people watching'. Room service is available around the clock at extra cost. The hotel laundry service is nothing short of excellent: everything gets neatly pressed and folded and returned in a plastic bag - even your socks! They even managed to get thick red lipstick off my white safari shirt - a miracle - but I won't go into how it got there :-)
The Nana has a night club at ground level, which is nothing more than a pick up joint that springs to life after midnight. I always avoid it ;-)
The hotel is about 30mins from the airport if you ask the taxi driver to use the toll expressway. It will cost you a few more (50-ish) baht but it is worth avoiding the perpetual gridlock.
The hotel staff are always extremely courteous and efficient and small regular tips ensure that you will be looked after. Be prepared when you arrive: the bell boy upon showing you to your room will almost always offer the services of a hotel masseuse to welcome you to BKK. "I've heard" that this welcome is actually extremely pleasant after the rigours of a long flight but if you are new to BKK it's best to just decline politely and give the bell boy a tip of about 50Baht and he'll be happy.
One tip: If you are a gadget freak, be sure to allow for a few hours excursion to the Pantip Plaza on the other side of town. Type it into Google and you'll find it. This is an amazing but hellishly busy megastore of cheap electronic gadgets, PC components and copied software - everything is there. The best I've seen anywhere but bear in mind that you have to pass through Customs at the airport upon your return.
Another tip: if she looks too beautiful for words, she's probably not female :-0
Yet another tip: you will be remembered from one year to the next.
To conclude: The Nana is safe and clean and makes a great base for single males wishing to explore the delights of Bangkok, but I definitely wouldn't take my family there!
Basic Nice Hotel
A basic hotel. Very central. The rooms are in need of renovation but the maid service is good. Located just opposite a bar area with lots of beer bars and go go bars. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Located near the overhead railway. It has 24 hour room service, a disco, good food in the coffee shop and a nice pool. All this for £25 per night per room. So if a couple stay its only £12.50 each. having said that it can get a bit raunchy outside in the early hours, so if your easily offended by ladies of the night. be warned. All in all if your only staying for a couple of nights and want a cheap hotel very central then this is fine.

This is just a short trip to see the King and Queen of Siam get married. It has given me the opportunity to use some technology that I haven't used before.

The Big Buddha is a definite must see in Bangkok, the sheer magnitude of it is mind-boggling. We spent about an hour walking around the grounds and sat in a room where the monks were chanting; this was surprisingly calming even in the stifling heat.
We made our way back to our hostel and stopped off for some dinner. We both had Pad Thai chicken, still ...
