I stayed here a night after my flight to Bangkok . The taxi driver had difficulties finding the place .
Pros-friendly staff, location
Cons - no window in room, cleanliness
All in all good value for money.
This hotel is named max-one as that is the absolute maximum amount of time (if any) you should stay at this establishment.
While it may seem like a good idea because it's "cheap"..."close to the airport for your morning flight"..."you want to save $$ for your actual destination" .....a sleepless night with waking nightmares is what you will get.
Let me set the scene:
A sizable, yet windowless room. The bed had bizarre coverings on it- I cocooned myself inside my sleep sack - my boyfriend slept on top of two towels and used my scarf as a blanket. Miscellaneous hairs scattered about - one we determined to be a pig's hair? A juicy black pubic hair in the bathroom sink. A very strange vibe- like bad things could have happened in that room- which probably did.
**just for the record we are not total divas about where we stay --this was just a creepy and scary hotel.
To also be fair-
There was A/C - a win for max-one
And some pretty tasty street food around the corner.
We checked in for a single night seeking a place close to Don Mueang Airport. (protip, people: it's closer to 'Moong' than 'Moo-ang'). It looked walkable from DMK - I can tell you it is in fact walkable. It's a rough, unsidewalked, 2+ km walk however - definitely better to take a cheap taxi.
The receptionist / would-be security fumbled through 3 papers for nearly 5 minutes before finally handing over a key. It's a large room, to be sure - perhaps an old apartment building? - with a decent queen-sized bed. Cable worked, fridge worked, didn't bother with the wi-fi as we both had SIM cards. A leak near dead-center in the room brought what might've been a three-star review down to 1 1/2 stars (pushed up to two since TA doesn't do halves)...
If your main goal is to stick close to DMK, do one of two things - stay somewhere that's connected to the airport (the Amari is across the street via pedestrian overpass), or stay in town close to the Chatuchak Park / Mo Chit area to catch the Airport Express (A1). I wouldn't stay here again.
