I would have given this hotel a solid 3 except for the double charging for the room on my credit card.I am confident this will be sorted out, however it does take away considerably from the experience.
This is a hotel of contrasts and tell down by the details.
The check in area of the foyer is amateur at best. I looks more like a disorganised work station. What appeares to be an all ethnic Indian male staff were friendly and gave good advice and service, double charging not withstanding.
Despite booking a room with twin beds, we were originally placed in a room with a queen size bed. Not so good when you are with a mate, and not your partner.
The location is quite but not the most convenient. The free tuk tuk to Sukhumvit Road does solve that problem to some extent. This section of Sukhumvit Road has cleaned its act up in the last few years, only sellers of fake products in the main, rather than sellers of "other things". However, if you are a female walking the last 100 metres or so at night could be disconcerting. The Soi 13 that leads directly to Sukhumvit Road from the hotel looks dodgy. Better to take a tuk tuk, taxi or walk via Soi 11 that leads directly to Nana Station. Soi 11 has lots of restaurants, hotels and bars etc and seemed quite safe.
The breakfast was of decent quality but had limited choice.
The hotel decor was funky/trendy which was nice but in some ways not functional. For example the bathroom and bedroom are in effect one single room with a frosted glass three quarter glass panel acting as a divider. It looks good but it depends on who you share a room with as it how comfortable you are with this set up. Noise, odour etc are not really contained.
Fantastic bed and pillows. As good as I have ever had so sleep quality was excellent.
Value wise it was Ok with a 60% discount for two nights.
