Bottom Line

MHC-Guesthouse is a small, bed-and-breakfast-style budget property in downtown Bangkok, just a five-minute walk from the Skytrain. The eccentric, cluttered and dated aviation-themed decor won’t be to all tastes, though it does have some homey charm, and the nine quiet, no-frills rooms are decent enough given the low room rates, but the cheapest one lacks windows. Breakfast is available for a fee and there's a bar in the lobby, but amenities are otherwise limited to free Wi-Fi and self-service tea and coffee. For something similarly priced and heaps more modern, consider the two-and-a-half-pearl Smart Suites.

Oyster Hotel Review

Sarnn Sukhumvit 28

Scene

Budget guest house with eccentric, cluttered and run-down aviation-themed interiors 

MHC-Guesthouse stands for Mile High Club, a nod to the former piloting career of this homey property’s owner/operator. That also explains the aviation-themed paraphernalia that fills the small converted, four-story townhouse, which ranges from model airplanes perched on ledges above the bar and beside the windows, and photographs taken on flights around the world, to countless currency bills pinned to the walls. Some will find charm in the hotel’s personal, if eccentric character, but there’s little denying it also feels cluttered and run-down. There are faded white walls, upholstered pew-like benches running almost the whole length of the relatively bright lobby, and boards packed with all manner of notices and information cards. But the brown-and-white checkered flooring is attractive and, while it doesn’t quite work with the setting, the traditional dark-wood bar is charming in itself.

Location

In a residential area, walking distance from the Skytrain, malls, parks, and restaurants

The MHC-Guesthouse’s biggest asset is arguably its location -- it's rare to find such a budget-friendly downtown spot this close to the elevated Skytrain, while the residential dead-end setting offers seclusion and quiet. The nearest station is just a few minutes’ walk away, as are a number of shopping malls, parks, and the embassy of The Philippines. There are plenty of restaurants and street food vendors in the vicinity, and the close proximity to the Skytrain also means it’s easier to get to Suvarnabhumi Airport by public transportation than it is from many hotels elsewhere in Bangkok.

  • Four-minute walk to the Embassy of the Philippines
  • Five-minute walk to Phrom Phong Skytrain station
  • Six-minute walk to Emporium and EmQuartier shopping malls
  • Eight-minute walk to Benjasiri Park
  • Nine-minute walk to the Thonglor neighborhood (for bars, restaurants and coffee shops)
  • 13 minutes to Siam shopping malls by public transportation (15-minute drive)
  • 21-minute drive to Chinatown (44 minutes by public transportation)
  • 26-minute drive to Suvarnabhumi International Airport (46 minutes by public transportation)
  • 27-minute drive to Khaosan Road
  • 27-minute drive to the Grand Palace (57 minutes by public transportation)
  • 31-minute drive to Don Muang International Airport
  • 31 minutes to Chatuchak weekend market by public transportation (20-minute drive)

Rooms

No-frills, dated rooms with tube TVs; the cheapest lacks windows, while the priciest has a kitchenette

Each of the MHC-Guesthouse’s nine individually air-conditioned rooms is named after a different aircraft. They’re definitely no-frills, but are clean and offer a decent level of comfort for the price. All have plain white walls, framed photos of airplanes, and contemporary wood-laminate flooring, plus comfortable beds on old-fashioned dark-wood or cream-colored fabric frames. Standard amenities include tube TVs with cable, mini-fridges, and safes.

The small and narrow, 161-square-foot (15-square-meter) Single Room lacks natural light, as it's missing a true window. The 237-square-foot (22-square-meter) Double Rooms do have windows, though some are still devoid of views. The 280-square-foot (26-square-meter) Superior Room, which can be configured with either three single beds or a king and a single, has pleasant neighborhood views from the top of the building. This room also adds a modern kitchenette, with a kettle and sink, but no crockery or utensils. Simple en-suite bathrooms have white-tiled sink units with exposed plumbing (in some rooms, the sink is outside the bathroom) and wet-room-style or walk-in showers.

Features

Decent lobby bar, simple breakfast (for a fee), and excellent Wi-Fi throughout the property

There are limited facilities on offer at MHC-Guesthouse, and the only public space is the combined lobby and well-stocked bar on the ground floor. The hotel's simple breakfast costs extra, though guests can help themselves to free basic tea and coffee at any time. Seating inside is limited to a handful of tightly packed tables; there are also a couple of seats for smokers on the hotel’s front porch. The lobby has a dartboard, a small selection of books to borrow, and a laptop for guests to use, plus there’s excellent free Wi-Fi throughout. Note that the front desk isn’t always staffed, but there is a bell to ring for assistance, and guests use their room key to access the hotel when no one is around. Staff can make tour arrangements and help guests order take-out food for delivery.
