An excellently appointed hotel that sparkles with the 'newness' of a 12month old property and delivers exceptional service and an oasis of tranquility from the craziness of Bangkok. It is located in downtown Bangkok in the Foreign embassy district (sandwiched between the US and Netherlands embassies) so a little further than most if you wanted a quick passage to the Grand Palace for example but having experienced several gridlocked and laborious taxi journeys I am not sure such a passage exists! That said taxis are frequent and the hotel runs a free shuttle to nearby train stops every half hour.
We travelled with 2 smaller kids(4 and 2) and whilst the hotel is not specifically designed for families and has a more boutique feel to it there is a great outdoor swimming pool (shaded) on the 4th floor and a playroom.
The gym(if that is your thing) is exceptional with all the latest Technogym equipment hat synchs to your iPod and you can burn off the kcals from your Thai Green Curry the night before in absolute comfort overlooking the park.
The rooms are spacious and the beds incredibly comfortable - we stayed in a suite and had everything you could want.
We had breakfast once in Cafe Claire of our 3 day stay and it was very tasty but perhaps lacked a broader range of options hat ou might be more used to in lager hotels. Other mornings we took a 10 min stroll to Dean and Deluca for great coffee and muffins for a fraction of the price.
Overall we left after a wholly positive and relaxed stay and would certainly recommend this property whether it is a business,couples or families trip. A stand out in the competitive and wonderfully hectic capital of Thailand!
