The location is not bad - it is just off Sukhumvit behind Exchange Tower. Walking from the hotel to Asok BTS / Terminal 21 takes about 10 min at a leisurely pace. Soi Cowboy is in a way just across the road (same time as Asok BTS).
Food is a problem. This place has no restaurants. So if you land up after 9 PM then you either have to go out to eat (Terminal 21 / Sukhumvit) or you have to order food in. Till 9 PM there is some basic room service available (club sandwich / green curry, etc.). On Soi 16, just next door to the hotel is a Foodland and above that there is a Japanese restaurant. A little bit further down the road there is a Korean restaurant beside a massage joint. If you keep walking further down the Soi then you will come across 2 other restaurants - an Italian joint and a Thai one. Other than this there is nothing else.
The room I stayed in a was a suite. It was pretty small in size although it did have a separate bedroom and living room area. Both were small but the living was especially disappointing. You sit in front of the TV and that means you are literally in front - about 3 feet from the TV. There is a small writing table just beside the sofa. A fully equipped open kitchen is present but no dining table.
The bed is ok and I had good sleep quality. THere is however, no telephone and no TV in the bedroom. So in case you have requested a wake up call then you really need to wake up, get out of bed, walk out of the bedroom and go and answer the call in the living area. not that this is a huge distance away - just about 10 to 15 paces. There is a cupboard in the bedroom but not enough space to keep your suitcase. If you do that then there will a bit of a space crunch in the room.
The WC and the shower are separate. The former is quite small and claustrophobic if you close the door. The latter has a bathtub but not a separate shower cubicle. It is quite small also in size - the tub, the sink and you and there is no room for anything else in there. Liquid soap dispensers in the shower only. Towels could have been far better.
The corridors of the floor areas would not be out of place in a communist era soviet republic - very bare and no natural light.
Breakfast facility exists - but very basic offering - fried rice, local meat or fish dish, chicken sausage, bacon strips, local soup, cereals, basic bread collection, some fresh fruit and canned juices, milk, tea, coffee, butter and jam. Oh there is also eggs on order. Not bad at all if you are not very fussy. I quite liked it.
Check-in and out was very smooth. Staff were very friendly and attentive. The place is neat and clean. Overall, a very average place.
