For me this hotel was conveniently located in the busy and bustling Silom area. However as it is set back from the main (Surawong) road it is quiet and exudes an air of calm. I found the staff manning reception to be friendly (fairly knowledgeable) and receptive to my needs. Likewise, the door and catering staff were welcoming and helpful. Liked the fact that I was remembered when I returned several days later for 2 separate overnight stays before flying to Cambodia and UK respectively.
Mid-range priced rooms were clean and spacious. For 400 bht more you can book a Deluxe room - but as far as I could see this entiled you to a daily delivery of fruit to your room and the provision of a DVD in the room. Nice comfortable beds. Air con and good minibar including the obligatory free bottles of drinking water. Decor is fairly standard and don't expect stunning views from the bedrooms - this is a built up area. One niggle was the absence of room safes - personally I feel more in control of my security if room safes are provided rather than the hassle of using safety deposit boxes at front desk. A small business area in the lobby offers free internet usage - great for checking travel plans etc
No gym or swimming pool - but these can be accessed nearby.
On your doorstep is the red light Patpong area so the streets get very busy with traders and you need to get use to the locals offering tuk-tuk and taxi rides, massage, watches, dvds, suits and sex shows.
This hotel is central to 'gay' Bangkok and therefore does cater for the gay traveller, so you will notice western guys breakfasting with younger asian partner/escort. Friends and 'joiners' can visit or stay overnight, but tight security means they have to leave ID in reception. If you are uncomfortable about this then another hotel may suit your requirements.
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stays here and would readily return on my next visit to the Far East.
