Looks OK:

Woodlands Inn, established in 1995, is a first class budget hotel, consisting of 75 luxurious guestrooms matched with the warm and friendly service of the South Indian management team.

Consisting of Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu, Hindi, Urdu, Thai and English speaking trained staff provide a service to make you feel at home away from home.

The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Bangkok with shopping, business and entertainment centres within walking distance. We are only 500 meters away from the famous Chao Praya River, 1.6 km from Hualumphong Bangkok Central Railway Station and approximately 30 minutes from Don Muang Bangkok International Airport.

But I think the warm and friendly service may be overdone at times.

lux budget maybe means a clean place with everything a normal traveler would need. minus swimmng pools, rip off resteraunts, and spas. Pluss you don't get the opertunity too show off and say "look at me I stayed at the orientel look at me im so rich and frivalous."....

lol.. yep I know how Red sox fans get when they string more then 2 wins in a row. we yankee fans do talk junk but we can back it up....

Located between the Oriental and Sheraton, I believe.
Has anyone stayed here?

Rich and frivalous is of course a relative thing- compare Oriental rates to those of Amapulo resorts and the Oriental looks like a budget option.
To some the hotel is not an important part of the vacation experience and so budget properties meet their needs and don't chew up much of the vacation budget. For others the hotel is an integral part of the vacation experience and thus the popularity of hotels like the Penn and Oriental.

bob, bob.. oh bob.. obviously you've never backpacked. I cant imagine what you'd pack..

at $9 it is actually in the midle end of the guesthouse/budget spectrum...

and it could be verry livable I've stayed in many $10 hotels that had clean king size bed, on suit bathrooms, and cable TV .

and in bkk you could get an apartmnet for one week like Stary place.. which avreges about 9-10 bucks a day and it even has a nice litle gym..

Ok but at $9/night lets agree words like First Class, Luxury do not apply.
How about clean, safe, functional, value oriented.
Nothing wrong with these places- to each his own.

BIll/RHK.. IM with ya on the way it was advertised... and I also think some cut and paste was used .. As someone who's stayed in some sh--holes that were well writen about in lonely planet. I would also have some suspisions. but I think people who are willing too pay less then $10 for travel lodging , tend not too be high maintnence and probably expect the worse.
