Warning!! Don't book here until after the renovation is finished!!
I have been a priority club member for quite awhile and have yet to rate one of their properties this low. This is an great hotel in a great location! The lobby is on the 23rd floor of the building, the MRT and BTS stations are just a few minutes walk so very good in that aspect.
The king room I had is spacious with a nice work area. Bathroom is also nice. My room was on the 29th floor facing the main road (Thanon Rama IV) and the traffic noise below was definately noticable.
I had read about the renovation noise from the other Trip Advisor reviews and was certainly a bit leery. When I got off the elevator and stepped into the lobby on the 23rd floor the first thing that hit me was the strong oder of paint. The front desk also re-warned me of the renovation work. I thought OK - a bit of noise I can handle it. Well - the noise was more than just a bit and I happen to be there the day they were painting - not just a roller on the walls, but a full blown spraying operation. The paint was hanging in the air all the way from the lobby through the upper floors of the atrium. It was chokingly bad! The hall rails, doors, etc had a thin white layer of overspray that had drifted down from the upper floor where the renovation was taking place.The only saving grace was that the ventilation in the room is isolated from the main atrium, so even though you could smell the paint in the room (or maybe it was coming off my clothes?) it was not circulating in the AC. It was so bad they could not put out the regular dinner buffet and cancelled dinner. The place was a ghost town that evening.
OK - so I can understand maybe they did not plan for such a bad issue with the paint. I head to the bar that nigh, am the only one there, order a glass of wine, get my drink, and never hear from the waitress again. I finish the drink, hang out for a bit, and finally head out. They are sitting behind the bar just texting away, said goodbye, and went riight back to their phones.
Just to be clear though, the remainder of the staff I interacted with were very attentive and courtious.
The hotel itself is a really nice place and in a prime transportation option location. I will probably give it one more try next time I am in BKK.
