This is not the world's best hotel. It doesn't try to be. It isn't about cutting corners or having the latest shiny bright interior when traditional wood will do. It is however about taking care of the traveller, making them feel welcome and at home and on that score, it achieves very high marks indeed.
I've known this hotel since the 1990s and have seen it ebb and flow, age and mellow and settle into a luxurious calm which belies its location near one of the busiest roads in the world.
I've been well received, used their services and had to push their patience to deliver when I needed help and each time they came through with flying colours. It isn't perfection though. Just occasionally there seems no reason why the fruit bowl has been only half filled but ask for any number of towels and pillows and they'll reappear like magic day after day. You can always get the fruit replenished with the one button "At your service".
Sometimes it prices itself out of the market but if you are able, just call them up and ask for a rate. This is Bangkok and almost everything is negotiable. The rates surely are; the service most gratifyingly isn't.
