Stayed at Oriental Residence Bangkok back in September with my mother. We got a One Bedroom Suite for a weekend staycation. First entering the hotel, the lobby was grand with a lot of light, and high ceiling. The front office staffs were very attentive and courteous. Check in was no problem. We were guided to our suite and were introduced where the necessities could be found
The room is spacious, and tastefully decorated. The hardware are of good quality, definitely not the five-star-wannabe. :) The living area and bedroom are of good size with extremely spacious bathroom, that can fit another extra bed in there! I love the separate bath and shower, as well as the amenities provided in the bathroom.
With the kitchenette in the room, we decided to make an easy meal the one evening. We had everything we wanted, a pot, a pan, dishes of various sizes and cutlery. Everything was cleaned and put back in the cupboard the next day. The complimentary coffee and tea provided were also of excellent quality and taste.
The food and afternoon snack at Cafe Claire are also excellent. My favourite are Ceasar Salad, Snow fish with miso glazed and Chocolate tea. Even if you are not staying at the hotel, I'd still highly recommend you to try.
The location is quite convenient, only 5 mins walk to Ploenchit BTS station. There is an office complex right across from the hotel with Starbucks and a few restaurants, as well as TOPS supermarket. There's also a small 7-Eleven just right across the street. There are also quite a few restaurants and massage places in Soi Ruamruedee, which is a short walk from the hotel. Taxi is easy to get and the apart from the usual rush hours, the area is quite and safe (Embassy Row).
I'd go back again and highly recommend the hotel and its restaurant.
