"In the jungle, the mighty jungle ..." Ocean Bangkok Tip by Tusitala

Ocean Bangkok, Bangkok: 140 reviews and 4 photos

This is very surreal ... a taste of Africa slap bang in the middle of downtown Bangkok. Livingstone's os done out in African ndebele style paint (bright geometric patterns) with african themes, props and decor.

It is a low key casual oasis amid the madness of Sukkumvit Soi 33. Staff are friendly and try their best at all times even if their traning is not necessarily 5-star hotel level. An easy languid place to call your home away from home for a while.

Suggest get a room on the pool side rather than road (soi) side to reduce sleep interuptions from traffic and late night revelry from the busy bar strip on your door step. Although sometimes the late night revelry comes from within. Best for solo male travellers and open minded couples rather than families and wowsers.

Unique Qualities: Set around a courtyard pool, this is full of local character (and characters!). A 'sports lounge' with a full complement of attentive hostesses, free internet which works great, breakfast included, and a laid back tropical garden atmopshere more like an African hunting lodge.

In room security is good with big safess and also alarms on doors if left open accidentally.
