Booked this hotel with a wego voucher, turned out to be a great deal considering our experiences. From arriving and being led to the 17th floor sky lobby, to the welcome drinks, we could already feel the warm welcome and attentiveness of the staff. They also realized that it was my birthday and provided a cake to our room, top marks for that!
The regal suite was great with a living area and bedroom, large and clean and the apple TV was a enjoyable surprise. Bed was comfy and there was a choice of different types of pillows offered by the hotel. Swimming pool on the eight floor was just about right, our 1 year old enjoyed splashing about. Only suggestion for the hotel would be the breakfast, variety is quite limited and as we had breakfast for 4 days, there were no changes in the menu.
Location wise, it is directly opposite from the British embassy, our cab from the airport got us on the right road, but took some time to pin point the hotel (for reference it cost us 400 baht). It would help if you request the hotel to email you the address in thai to show to the cab driver. It is a 5 minutes walk to the Phloen Chit BTS and you have to climb some stairs to get to the station. We found that you could walk through Wave Place, which is an adjacent building, take the escalator up and walk through to the BTS walkway, it would save climbing 1 flight of stairs. With the BTS it is very convenient to get to the various places along the BTS line, Siam (Siam Paragon, Siam Discovery Center), Chit Lom (Central World), Asok (Terminal 21), Thong Lo (Sukhumvit Soi 38 street food - nights only), Mo Chit (Chatuchak weekend market). Go to the Saphan Taksin station (by changing skytrain lines at Siam station) which is directly above the central pier to take a river taxi on the Chao Praya River.
One could also walk from the hotel to Central Chit Lom (10 minutes) and another 10 minutes could get you to Central World. We did this at night, when it wasn't so hot.
We had a wonderful trip to Bangkok, great shopping and dining, and Sivatel Bangkok made it a welcome home of us during this time.
