“Good place to stay at but location isn't too ideal!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Room that I stayed is really good and the hotel is really near BTS.. But the station is pretty far away from central area which sometimes taxis from central will not take you back. Room is generally clean but I have quite a bit of difficulty getting the right temperature of water when showering. It's either too hot or too cold. Staff doesn't really understand English so when you talk to them over the phone from the room, you'll need lots of patience! Overall I'm happy with the room and the value that I paid for. Just the travelling part.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

We stayed for 3 nights, extremely helpful staff especially Sonia (front office manager). Rooms are nice, good view (we had room on 11th floor), decent size swimming pool. Hotel is away from the city centre where all the action happens but located 5 minute walk to nearest BTS (Bangchak) station. Though we checked out in morning, they allowed us to use the pool until closing time, which was a nice gesture.

Only thing missing is small details. We asked for the baby cot but there was not blanket. We were provided with a bath towel instead, luckily we had our own. Very nice kitchen with utensils and cutlery but no salt/pepper provided. I think it will be a nice touch to provide salt/pepper in kitchen.

Room Tip: Look for room on high floor.Washing machine is provided on M floor is charged 40B and additional for...

The room comes complete with a balcony, huge bathroom and complete kitchen. Awesome! Great value for the big city and steps away from the sky train. The breakfast was ok - but not really our thing. There was a good selection of hot dishes - thai and western, toast and cereal. The fruit was kind of lacking.

The hotel with lovely rooms (suite), very spacious bathroom and great facilities (large fridge, microwave, stove, 2 TVs, etc.). It is a bit out of the center, but it is on the Skytrain around the corner very well connected to the center. Staff is very friendly and service oriented. The buffet breakfast is for American Breakfast lovers not particularly Tell. The taxi driver was able to start with the address from the Internet or posting anything. A call on site, however, has helped (note that necessarily Hotel Phone Number). This hotel was the best in terms of value for money!

Great alternative to upscale hotels in the busier areas of Bangkok. These are essentialy apartments, so lots of space to feel at home in. We selected a one bedroom unit which included a small kitchen and laundry equipment. TVs with many English channels in both living room and bedroom. Nice pool and meditation area on the grounds. Right next to the BTS Bang Chak station for easy exploring and commuting to most areas of BKK. You will pay a 15 Baht premium to/from this station, but the price of the hotel makes it well worth the cost. Large Tesco/Lotus for all your grocery needs only one stop away at "On Nut" If you are staying several days, get a BTS "Rabbit" card with 15 - 40+ trips and add a few hundred Baht to your "purse" to cover the extra toll and for a simple means to pay for some retail fast food .purchases at select spots. We ordered from their room service menu a couple of nights and it was served hot, promptly and was quite reasonable value for the money. Delivered with a smile and no lingering for a tip...very comfortable and professional

All the staff at this hotel are exceptional. We spent over two weeks here and always felt as though we were VIPs. From the routine solutes and snap to attention at the driveway entrance to the always available Concierge Team to the Front Desk personnel they were all fantastic. The Housekeeping Staff was especially exceptional...always cheery and genuinely pleased to see us every day. The Security and Management personnel made us feel safe and secure in this property.

Room Tip: If you like to sleep in and are staying here on weekdays, ask for a room on the opposite side of the...

My family of 5 stayed here recently and the experience was all anyone could ask for a temporary home--clean and spacious rooms (we booked a 2 Bedroom Superior), complete and modern amenities, friendly and helpful staff--special mention to Nhaphat, lovely breakfast spread and a short walk to the BTS station which made up for its distance from the center. On our last day however, the shower drain in the ensuite bathroom of the second bedroom failed to work which caused a minor flood from the shower floor to the small part of the bedroom. Luckily, the housekeeping staff was able to resolve it quickly but it still caused inconvenience. And apparently, they've been getting complaints on the drain many times. This definitely marred my otherwise glowing review of the hotel. Overall though, I would definitely stay here again and hopefully soon.
