This place lets itself down with some really basic problems.
If you stay for a few nights on a 'hotel' basis it's ok. Cleanish and decent facilities for a good price. (900THB for a night in the smaller rooms, which are still a decent size for a short stay).
If you stay for a month or longer it's very very poor. The price drops in the same way that other long-term lets in Bangkok drop (to 15,000THB per calendar month) so you're not getting a much better deal than any other place, but most of the staff (except one) seem to have an attitude that you can shove off if you need anything that they can't be bothered to provide, even when they have it.
For example - we stayed for one month while we took a course in Bangkok. Being travellers, we were not equipped with sheets, kettles, bowls/plates/cutlery, towels etc. We wanted to borrow these things (which come as part of a standard hotel room, therefore they do have this stuff), and were told we had to go and buy it. We were prepared to pay to borrow it. Buying it is a total inconvenience and a waste of money. I had to almost fight for a kettle. We were not allowed towels, even if we washed them ourselves, and we asked if we could have a bed linen service (and pay for it) and were told no, we have to buy and wash our own. Ok, it's not the end of the world, but if you're doing it anyway and I'm offering to pay why be so utterly inflexible and unprepared to negotiate??
All this after they lost our reservation for the month's stay which we made two months in advance (and paid a deposit). We were put on the third floor, which at the time was being completely renovated with flooring being ripped out and replaced and some re-plastering (obviously except the room they shoved us in at the last minute). Banging and hammering and drilling and shouting and the radio playing... we put up with it for two days and asked to be moved. The one person in this place who deserves a medal is a lady at reception who was so shocked to hear we'd been put on the third floor that she actually shouted at the manager and told him this was unacceptable. She had us moved to the 6th floor, which was not near one of the other floors undergoing renovation.
Then the ant infestation began. Nothing could be kept anywhere in the room except in the fridge, so we didn't bother eating in there at all (despite having had to go out and buy the stupid mugs and plates, and having chosen a place where there were facilities to eat, i.e. a microwave).
The aircon broke on the first day. It was fixed pretty sharpish, but then it broke again in the last week. We were told 'turn it off and leave it off for a few hours'. This is Bangkok. 40 degrees in April. TURN IT OFF? Then someone came back the next day after we complained again and 'fixed' it (well, we think he did, he didn't actually say whether he had finished, he just didn't come back). It's still blowing out warm air. In Bangkok. In 40 degree heat.
With the one exception of a really friendly and helpful lady at reception, without whom we would have been even less happy here, everyone else is unhelpful, can't be bothered, don't care, don't want to bother helping out, don't want to put any thought into making a customer's life any easier.
The place is run down and grubby, and although they're clearly giving it an overhaul, they need to give the staff a renovation too.
I wouldn't recommend staying here.
Above the 5th floor so you get SOME light into the room through the tiny windows, preferably towards...
