I booked this hotel because of the good reviews in TA so once again, the latter did not disappoint. As many have mentioned, it's greatest asset is its location. It's in the midst of the shopping district, lots of restos nearby and just a block away from the Siam BTS station. But the hotel itself has its own merits: our standard room was satisfactory, clean and everything worked like a charm. The staff were all courteous and helpful and the buffet breakfast had a wide variety -- Western, Asian, halal. There were Apple Mac desktops at the lobby where one can use the internet for 20 mins. free. When I had to check in for my flight online, the Business Center let me use their printer to print out my boarding pass, and although there was a sign that says there was a charge for page, they let me print me for free.
The downsides: Wifi was free albeit slooow but that was probably because many users were logged on; while our non-smoking room indeed did not have any smoky odor, our bath towels had slight scent of cigarette. I guess the laundry service of the hotel (or any hotel for that matter) does not sort out which towels come from smoking or non-smoking sections. Beds in Asian hotels tend to be firm and the one in my room was no exception but I found mine to be more firm than average. On the other hand, the pillows were big and fluffy but when you lay your head on them, they are too soft that you feel like you have no pillow at all.
Overall however, I was quite satisfied with this hotel and should I be back in Bangkok anytime in the future I'd be glad to check in here again.
