Swan hotel was surprisingly quiet which I didn't expect in bustling Bangkok! This was extremely important for my friend and I during our 2 nights in the city.

The staff were friendly and helpful but we often had trouble conversing due to the language barrier. The hotel tuk-tuk driver also ripped us off which we surprised us. We expected other tuk-tuk drivers to do this bit we thought we would get a fairer deal with a hotel tuk-tuk... We used the river taxi just down the road or local taxi's instead.

I'm not a big morning eater but the provided breakfast offered a wide range of fruits and salads which was perfect.

We stayed here on our last night of a month trip around Thailand. Due to Chinese New Year most hotels were fully booked so though one night here would be ok. It’s very reasonably priced for Bangkok but would rather pay a bit more really. The decor is really old and drab and it’s dirty, there were hairs everywhere including in the bed, the bathroom was rotten, you could actually sit on the toilet while taking a shower it was so small.we were in a room by the street and it was so noisy it was impossible to sleep even wearing ear plugs. Guess it would be ok if you’re backpacking but I’m afraid not for us.

We used to stay at the Swan in the early eighties and it hasn’t changed a bit! This was our first visit since then and it’s still inexpensive, in a terrific location, and has a great pool for this level of hotel. The rooms are basic, but very clean and the air conditioning works well. We arrived in the middle of the night to discover they did not have our reservation that we had booked through booking.com, but the young man at the desk happily got us into our room anyway. Breakfast was included in our booking, eggs cooked to order and a small buffet. Staff has enough English proficiency to help with most needs. The beds are firm, but we slept well on them. The Skytrain is just a few blocks down the street as is a pier on the River, and Charoen Krung Rd at the end of the street has shops and restaurants to meet all your needs. The French Embassy is next door, and it’s a fun area to explore. There is no elevator at the Swan, and the first floor is up one flight of steps. The bathrooms are “all in one” meaning there is no separation for the shower, so the entire bathroom pretty much gets wet. We just wiped it down after our showers and it was fine. You can’t beat the price and the location!

We stayed 2 nights then 1 night a week later at the swan hotel - rooms are big, beds comfortable but the hotel is a bit dated - no flat screen tv, small bathroom. There is no lift but the staff takes your luggage up when you arrive.The pool is big and the area around the pool very pleasant. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Good choice for the price.

We stayed 3 nights at the Swan and enjoyed it. It was while the royal cremation was happening and there were very few other guests. Some of the staff were very friendly others less so. The restaurant service was vey good. The pool was excellent. The atmosphere was not ultra modern but all the better for that. The room was clean and A/C worked well. Beds firm and comfortable. Transport was easy and convenient. Found some good corner shops, restaurants and coffee bars nearby. Silver shops abundant and way beyond our budget.

Room Tip: Rooms away from street probably quieter
