Reviewed 1 January 2012

Everyone has stayed in nicer places than the White Lodge, but not for the price. I have stayed there several times, often for weeks at a time when I lived in Thailand. The street vendors are cooking and serving food right outside the lodge on the small side-street and are very friendly. I have always been treated exceptionally well by the owners and staff. If you walk to the end of the street -- about 200 yards/meters -- you will see the stairway up to the BTS (the overhead tram system, which is very clean, safe and inexpensive). The BTS will take you all the way across BKK in different directions. The stairway is also useful to bypass the street level traffic and simply enter the huge mall across the street on the 2nd floor. The mall has anything and everything including a movie theater, grocery store, internet cafe and enough cell phone shops to fill a large parking lot. The dollar is much weaker than it used to be, when this room was only about $10 / day. They will make you a deal, too, if you are there for a month. They will also arrange your travel arrangements for you if you wish to see the floating markets, jungles, take a van to Pattaya, or other sight seeing trips.

Room tip: Some are better than others. The ones on the bottom floor are the easiest to get to, and therefore the most worn out. I have stayed in them, though and did not have any extraordinary adverse experiences. If you are paranoid about safety --and you don't need to be in Thailand -- the owners live down there across the hallway and can hear any type of issues.

I had a 3 day layover in BKK a couple of weeks ago. I was looking for a place in the center, within walking distance to the BTS and the shopping centers. I had previously stayed on soi Kasem (at a place not worth mentioning) and knew the location was great, although quality varies on this street.

The truth is the first room I was shown in White Lodge was a real stinker and I almost left the place. But then they showed me 2 rooms in the back... When I say the back, I don't mean the back of the main building. If you are facing White lodge, at the back of the small street on the right, at the right hand side they have a few more rooms. MUCH MUCH nicer rooms.

The room was fairly big, quiet, clean and at a very reasonable price. I am surprised it was available at all (I had not booked in advance). Anyway, the stay there was great, I have no complaints.

The staff were friendly and spoke good English. Bottom line - if u need a place in the center, near the BTS and shopping centers and don't mind simple lodging - this place is well worth the price.

Room tip: Check out the rooms in the back, not in the main building - the ones in the building on the right hand-side of the alley to the right of the hotel.

Beyond its cheap price, this hotel is very well located, close to the sky train with a lot of food shops around.
Stay away from it though if you value clean rooms (walls especially, floor is fine), some are very humid.
Staff is moderately friendly, which is surprising among Thai people.
Bed quality was below average.
Daily payment was also a pain.

This review will make this place sound worse than it is, but here are some facts about White Lodge, Bangkok.

It has a superb location across Rama 1 Road(Sukhumvit) to MBK Center on Soi KasemSan 1, right on the BTS SkyTrain Silom Line station "W1 National Stadium". There is a 7eleven within 50 meters of the guesthouse.

The usual rate for a room is 500 Baht, includes double bed, A/C, water-heater shower, soap and towel. The bed has sheets.

There is a free WiFi on the second floor but it can be accessed probably from every room. At night time it seems to be turned off. The speed tested to a Bangkok server at ping 42ms, D1.60/U0.51Mbps.

You have to pay each morning and sign it on a book, which is troublesome. Also the noon cleaners are going to wake you up and knock on your door. There is little privacy from the cleaners. This is probably the worst thing about this hotel. They will go away if you agree the room not to be cleaned.

The 4th floor rooms seem the best value. It is good to shop around as some rooms have noisy or leaky A/C, no functioning electrical sockets, clogged drains, bad water tap, a cockroach horns peeking from a hole in the toilet doorstep etc.

The cleanliness is ok, but the cleaned floor/toilet usually has hairs etc left from the dirty cleaning water/brooms.

The rooms are far from impressive, but they are okay and the bed is ok.

To sum it up, if you want a nice location and a private room in the Siam area, access to 7eleven, SkyTrain, MBK, free WiFi for 500 Baht, it is a good choice. Bangkok is difficult for decent accommodation.

Remember that a taxi flag-fall is only 35 Bahts(5km+5B/km). SkyTrain is 15-40 Bahts, same as MRT underground metro.

Room tip: top floor for best rooms
