I've stayed at the Nana hotel quite a number of times over the years. It's okay, certainly not perfect, but it's got a fair share of regulars like myself who use it more as a gap stop. I'm pretty sure the owner is a Mrs, she calls by on a steady basis and quite often has meetings with what seem like well connected people.

Couples, obviously tourists, don't usually last more than 1 night or two, I wonder why that may be.

i stayed a few times there in the 90's and loved the breakfasts when u see the over 75 crowd with their last nights "overnighter" , god they picked up some UGLY ladies... :stir:
Drop by the lobby in the mid afternoon and look at all the old farts sleeping in the chairs

Still preferred the crown on soi 8 :-) till they sold out, but now stay with friends in Bangkok

Yes, it's near GSM. That's the one the other posters are talking about.

Good to hear the ASEAN burgers are still around. Is Nimol still there or did she move to Australia?

Well I was talking about the one in Pp as it was referred to to in an earlier post. I quite liked the Nana and its position in Bangkok, and the breakfasts there as well.
