Within walking distance to Huai Khwang MRT station, easy to access to anywhere by either MRT or cab. 7-11 next to the hotel, and many small restaurants around. There is night market opposite main road, Huai Kwang night market that selling varieties of things and food. The seafood restaurant and fried chicken beside the roadside along the market is the best one yet cheap price. Hotel quite spacious as we stayed in the deluxe room, breakfast included. Everything is fine with such price we paid.

We were there one night. Location was ok, near MRT. It was quite hard to move by walk because there were big road and very much traffic.. It it was very hard to cross! Room were clean and little bit different than normal hotel room. It was shame that when you take a shower the floor of the bathroom was full of water... Room was big and there were nice coffee place downstairs where you can get the food to the room.

Travelling at the end of September 2012, unfortunately it was flooded at Ratchada area. The hotel was nice, colorful, and the staffs were friendly. Walking distance to the subway train, easy to get to somewhere at cheap price. Recommended for those who look for budget hotel on Ratchada Road.

Overall, a pleasant stay in a very affordable budget hotel. At first we were given a small room next to some construction, and we asked for a change. They happily changed our room in a very timely manner.

Pros:
- Near MRT
- New and very clean
- Operated by a corporation, so there are many standards
- Staff can communicate in English
- Breakfast buffet was pretty tasty with a lot of variety
- Lots of TV channels
- Decent nightlife and many markets nearby.
- Air conditioning was awesome!

Cons:
- One side of the building faces construction, so that may be problematic for some people
- Since it's a budget hotel there are certainly no frills, so expect basic but comfortable and clean.

What else can be said?

Room Tip: Not sure what the deluxe rooms are like, but the standard rooms were perfect for just sleeping and s...

there is night market nearby that is good to shop as opening around 9pm till 5am...is a never sleep area.

Room is comfortable, modern and clean. (at least not olden type)
Breakfast area modern and full of classical musical instrument to explore.
Staff are helpful and especially the person in charge of travel group sitting next to the entrance, she is very friendly and helpful, highly recommend.

With Bangkok Traffic packing up like crazy nowadays it only seems right to stay at a hotel out of the usual pratunam or main downtown area. (It takes almost 10mins to walk to the main road to grab a cab at these areas)

TRANSPORT:
CMYK is perfect for it's strategic location. It's so near(4mins walk) to huay kwang MRT(exit 1) beside a Toyota showroom and we take the train everywhere we went. it's only about 10 mins to sukhomvit/asok station to transit to the BTS.

From Airport:
U can choose to take the airport link to Makkasan and transit at Phetchaburi MRT but it's a long walk esp if you are carrying massive amt of luggage. i would suggest to just spend that 400/500 to get a taxi to the hotel unless you are a really light traveller.

LOCATION:
Outside the hotel there's many massage parlous and good food just across the hotel (pork leg rice or 199bhat buffet steamboat) or u can go famous som boon seafood or hway kwang night market until 3am.
7-eleven is just to the left of the hotel for any necessity.
At night it's near to thonglor soi 10 or ekkamai via cab if you want to party.
Not forgetting 1 stop away from Hollywood Awards Disco one of the best few entertainment clubs.

Room:
As for rooms it's very clean and bathtub is perfectly placed near the bed(Romantic).
It's bright and cheerful with the different colors schemes of the rooms.
I love the side lights on the headrest of the bed.
Super good free wifi too considering other hotels like Baiyoke still charge for wifi(WTF)
The people are very nice, can hold a conversation and speak a fair amt of english

REVIEW of REVIEWS:
I have read the other reviews and agree that their booking is quite screwed up with them selling out more higher end rooms and not being able to get everyone their intended rooms but again it's a norm for such things to happen at budget hotels.
No theft happen in my room, I locked my luggage everytime i leave.
It's not a dingy alleyway(i have seen worst). It's just a side road beside the toyota showrooom. because the main road is very busy and u cant stop your car there.
Service possible to be quite slow, but it's because they are understaffed. I see the same staff almost everyday(dont they take a rest?)
I just take it with a pinch of salt if such things happen(it's a budget hotel). It's still a nice place to stay despite the negative reviews

Overall:
Darn good place to stay, value for money, love the MRT and nearby food, will return again!!
but i must try to pronounce the road name
PRAAA - CHA - RA PHEM - HEMM SOI SUM!

Room Tip: Just book and pray u get a good room. It's a budget hotel for christ sake...
