“Typical 3-star business motel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Very nice staff. Very efficient room service. Suitable hotel, if you need to be in the area. But there isn't much to do, nearby. The hotel is well outside the city center (and traffic is so bad that it's not practical to commute in and out). The hallways have no carpeting and nothing to absorb sound, so you hear every noise outside the rooms.

Room Tip: Only stay here if you need to be in the area, for business. Not much to do, and the hotel isn't...

The hotel was average. I couldn't get the shower to be hot. I mentioned it numerous times to the front desk and after a week, I left without ever having a hot shower. The air conditioner was very loud.

While I love Bangkok, I have to say that I have got a bit tired of the tourist-bubble around Sukhumvit. It seems as if there are more westerners than locals, and everyone is out to flog you tat. This place is a complete contrast, and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. It is some way North of the city centre, in a prosperous area with lots of modern offices but almost no tourists, and I found that refreshing. In the dining room at breakfast I was almost the only white face; when I wandered down to the local mall the cake shops and cinema were heaving with well-to-do Thais, not overweight foreigners. A $2 taxi ride take you to Mo Chit station, from where the BTS takes you easily and quickly to anywhere in town. Oh, and it is significantly cheaper than the big hotels. The rooms are billed as suites; they are not huge, but they are equipped with a microwave and a good size fridge. OK, so you don’t get a vast marble atrium or 9 types of Danish pastry at breakfast - but you might feel as if you are actually seeing a bit more of Thailand.

Booked a studio room with breakfast through Agoda for about USD 57 for a night stay. No deposit is required on arrival. The property is just as popular with the local and the foreign travellers. It is liken to staying in a full facilities serviced apartment. Take a taxi from Lat Phro MRT station, about 60 Baht and you should be there in about 12 minutes. Located next to a SHELL gasoiline station. Free in-room wifi and simple cooking appliance are provided. Would recommend it as a stop-over if you need to take early flight off Don Muang airport. Good for elderly, family with young children. There is also a driving range nearby and you get to use the gym and the pool located at the highest floor. The neighbourhood shopping mall ~ Suzuki Avenue Shopping Mall is 10 minutes walk from the property. Lower your expection, and you should enjoy the shopping there. Beware of the wet floor tiles in the bathroom, it may cause you a slip-and fall injury. Take Care. Enjoy the breakfast in the small and cosy restaurant too.

We stayed here for 4 nights - my wife, one year old daughter and I. We were visiting a friend that lived in the same suburb.

Overall its a very well priced, well appointed hotel with good sized rooms that are clean and fairly new.

Positives:
1. Price. Only 2,250 baht per night in total for 3 people in a large room including breakfast.
2. Rooms, Very good size. Nice to have a couch to relax.
3. Minibar. Well stocked and good prices.
4. Room service. Were very quick and got our orders right.
5. Breakfast. A good selection.
6. Reception. Always helpful with advice and booking taxis etc.
7. Location. Its in an outer suburb but there are plenty of shops and sights that can be walked to.

Negatives:
1. Noise at night. I did have to call reception to complain about noise from another guests room at around 11pm. To their credit to noise stopped shortly afterwards.
2. Airport transfer. Arrived 40 minutes late on departure and they had no idea how to fit the babyseat to the car.

Would be happy to stay here again.

The place is cool and the ambience is fine too but the service is not where it should be. They call it residences and it is anywhere from from that though. No kitchen and no Microwave so ... u know the rest of the story when u call it residence...

Room Tip: Not bad but dont have very high hopes
