From the start we were nothing but happy with this little oasis. Firstly, we were given clear instructions on where our driver would collect us from the airport including the uniform he'd be wearing. Our plane was over an hour late but standing there patiently, holding a sign with our names, in the exact location stated, was our driver.
The reception staff were pleasant, offered us a map & explained how to get to the light rail (just a short walk from the hotel), catch a boat up the river to the old city or how to catch a taxi.
The room was simple but comfortable and very clean. The bed was enormous and extremely cosy for Thailand standards (some beds in other hotels can be very hard), there was tea & coffee making facilities, the bathroom offered the necessary toiletries, the room was cleaned everyday with 2 bottles of complimentary water was replaced each day.
Breakfast was superb. It was included in the price & we were pleasantly surprised to find a buffet of fresh fruit, a variety of cakes, croissants & other sweet treats as well as yoghurt & all the toast you could eat on top of the breakfast we had pre-ordered. The hostess was very nice & the breakfast room was clean & bright.
The hotel is located away from the tourist hot spots so sleeping was not broken by the sound of people partying into the night. Given transport is close and tuck tuk's and taxis are cheap the location isn't too discerning.
Overall the staff were friendly, the hotel was clean & breakfast was delicious. Since we've moved on to other parts of Thailand we are finding other hotels are certainly not matching up to the experience we had Bangkok Loft Inn.
