Pannee has better rooms than nearby Thai Cozy House for similar rates -- at least if you walk in rather than booking online.
The cheapest rooms are more functional than stylish, with tan tile floors, air-con, tiny TVs hanging from the ceiling, windows facing a wall, good quality beds with fresh sheets, mosquito nets (unexpected), large bureaus and small bathrooms with a wall separating the hot-water shower from the toilet. The superiors are bigger and brighter but overlook the street so might get some traffic noise in the morning (though Tani is not a busy road). Rooms on the upper floors have some reasonable views of the surrounds, while the VIP rooms are rooftop and enjoy a small garden terrace atop the building. Before you grab a higher floor room, keep in mind that there's no lift. The ground floor features an internet cafe serving fresh coffee, and staff is straightforward but polite. Rates fluctuate quite a bit with seemingly little rhyme or reason for the changes (rates listed below are a ballpark sampling of what we've been quoted at different times). In October '14, rates on Agoda were 100 to 200 baht higher than we were quoted as walk-ins. Pannee also has a second, smarter property down on Chakrabongse Road.
