This being another railway trip, I decided to pick @Hua Lamphong Hotel for the convenience of being located literally outside Hua Lamphong MRT Station and opposite Bangkok Hua Lamphong Railway Station. This time though, they seem to have rebranded themselves from the former name of @Hua Lamphong Hostel.
The facade of @Hua Lamphong Hotel.
Due to the delay of my Special Express 46 International Express, my room was ready for check-in the moment I arrived at the hostel since it was almost check-in time.
The lobby of @Hua Lamphong Hotel featuring a sofa area, internet area, and a cafe.
@Hua Lamphong Hotel is themed with Hua Lamphong Railway Station in mind.

The view of my Single No Window room from the entrance.
Everything that I needed and more is provided in a simple and compact area, including stuff I don’t use such as the telephone and safe.
A minibar is also provided under the sink.
Despite emphasizing on the “No Window” part of things everywhere throughout the booking process on agoda, the Single No Window room technically does come with two frosted windows – a small one above the sink which can be flipped opened for ventilation and another small one in the bathroom which cannot be opened. This provides natural light into this “no window” room.
The toilet is surprisingly spacious, with a combined toilet and shower area. A bidet spray is also provided beside the toilet bowl.
The shower with soap provided.
The WiFi password and other information are pasted behind the door.
Here’s the WiFi password.
The single bed is sufficient for a good night’s rest.
A nice abstract picture of Hua Lamphong Railway Station completes the train experience.
A bottle of drinking water is provided inside the minibar.
In the morning, breakfast is served in the cafe.
As compared with my previous stay, breakfast is no longer a buffet, but a selection of dishes from the cafe menu, which means you get a freshly cooked meal upon order.
I picked a hot coffee for my drink.
For breakfast, I picked the western option of eggs, ham, sausages and bacon. It tastes really good, with it being all hot and fresh from the pan.
Overall, another pleasant stay at @Hua Lamphong Hotel, which is probably why I keep going back whenever I have train trips in Bangkok.
