I've been to Bangkok a few times and none of the hotels can beat this one in terms of room size and wifi speed. There is a walk-in closet, pantry in addition to a TV area and dining area. Even with an extra bed in, there is still a lot of space left. The Wifi speed was fast and there was absolutely no problem with connections.
As for food, there is an alley just next door and the stir fries are alright. I paid 35 baht for a good serving of pad thai. Top supermarket is in a shopping centre just across the road. You can also find Burger King there. 7-11 is a few blocks down the road on the right.
It is a quiet location and when I had to take cabs, many could not locate the hotel. The address on the hotel says Soi 29 but we noticed that the sign just outside the hotel says Soi 1. When on the road, look out for NOVOTEL or TOTO and be prepared to turn into the small road. If you like shopping and like convenience, then you should choose other hotels located in the shopping belt. But if you are alright with the BTS or don't mind taking cabs, then this hotel is good.
If there is anything that I really don't like about the hotel is the expensive price for cab from the hotel to the airport. Elsewhere, I could ask for a metered cab to the airport and it would not have cost me more than 500 baht but this time, at this hotel, the bellboy said that it could not be done. I was very unhappy but still, he insisted that a metered cab was not possible. Finally, he said that he would negotiate for me (as if really) and then the price went down to 700 baht. I should have done some homework. If I had known earlier, I would have taken my tour guide's offer to drive me to the airport.
The receptionists at the front desk are fine. They were really helpful and could be understood. If you are keen to try this hotel, look at the attached image for the address in thai. Show this to the cab driver.
