This hotel is still new and not everything is fully ready yet (I think June/July 2013 is when it will be "compelte). Location is right around the corner from a Sky Train station (BTS) and anyone that knows Bangkok knows that the Sky Train is the best way to travel in the core area.
The staff was friendly and service was good. My rate included breakfast and I would say that it was a little too crowded in the eating area to be that nice and it was quite hot there depending on where you were sitting and how much sun was coming in. The food itself was good and very varied. Service was topnotch and attentive.
The room itself was a little too much on the side of "style" and not enough function. The sink is poorly designed, if you run the tap you will get splashed by a lot of water because of the angle and there are not many flat surfaces along the side of the sink so anything you place on the edge risks falling. There is a privacy curtain for the bathrom but unfortunately it kept getting caught in the door to the room. The iron and ironing board were in the closet near the front of the room, but I couldn't find a plug there and needed to set up towards the back of the room. If this is a family trip (was not for me) watch out as the shower is transparent. You can close it off, but the glass wall for the bath is tinted glass and you can still see through it and you cannot close that area off for privacy.
Staff was helpful. The bar area was busy and service thee was good.
I certainly liked my experience there and I bet that it is even better once everything all settles in.
