This was our second visit in a month. We are a family of 2 + a 4.5 year old and an 8 month old baby. This review applies to both visits.
Everything was excellent: the rooms, food, cleanliness and most notably the staff. They were so friendly and caring we felt like we made ourselves a second home. They all fell in love with our kids and they couldn't be happier with all the attention. We ate our meals at the hotel's restaurant and enjoyed every minute of it: the food is diverse and tasty and with an open buffet we could eat and drink to our heart's content.
The location is good in terms of things to do in a reasonable walking distance (10-15 minutes to shops, mall, etc.) however the street is very busy with traffic, narrow sidewalks, etc. Also the only way to cross the rode is by crossing bridges which only have stairs and makes it impossible if you're with a pram/stroller, so if you see anything you like on the other side of the road don't be surprised of you can't get to it...
Distance to the international airport is 20KM's. 1 hour with traffic, 45 minutes without. Taxi service is good, 400 Baht for normal sedan, 600-700 for mini van. There is a Sky Train station right next to the hotel so if you travel light you can avoid taking a taxi.
The prices for the room and food were very reasonable and affordable.
Bottom line - we would go again and would highly recommend to our friends!
