I stayed for 2 nights before the New Year. Booked it based on raving reviews and the price / quality ratio seemed good. Well, it is. It is an excellent hotel and when I am back in Bangkok I will definitely try to stay here again and recommend it to all my friends.
The location is very good. You go to Surasak BTS station and there is direct access to the hotel building from the platform. It is a 10-15 min ride to get to Siam for all the shopping and entertainment and only 1 station ride to get to the river ferry should you want to hit the cultural things.
The hotel is new, modern and looks posh. It was very busy over the New Year time, so probably it is even better experience to stay there at a quieter time. However, everything worked efficiently: reception, restaurant staff, pool staff; never waited long, everyone is professional and all smiles. Very nice impression from the people who work there.
I really loved the food there. The breakfast buffet is huge and very varied. I stayed in another hotel on my way back from Bangkok and really missed the breakfasts at Eastin. The food is very tasty and fresh and oh boy, it is really difficult to stop eating :). I also went for lunch buffet on my arrival day and again it was excellent. There were many seafood choices, Japanese corner and many other options. The quality was superb. I appreciated it that some waiters already recognized me on second day and the atmosphere in dining room - though it was very busy - was still somehow friendly and personalized. There are two other restaurants on site: one Chinese and one Italian, unfortunately I did not have time to try them.
The pool area is stunning. The pool is on 14th floor and ends at the edge of the building. It is amazing to swim there at sunset; watching the sun going down over the busy city, sipping drinks and relaxing. Truly wonderful experience.
My room was huge, on one of high floors, incredible views. I did not want to leave the room :), it was that good.
Well, I guess too many superlatives for one review. But I really liked it :).
I guess rooms on higher floors are better for views.
