We paid 1300 baht (about £26 or $34) for a double room, this is mid range for Bangkok). This is a good hotel.
The rooms were well decorated and very clean. There was a fridge, kettle and TV. However the three big problems with this hotel were all related to the room:
1. The bathroom was cramped.
2. The kettle was defective, and wouldn't switch off. By the time I realised , I burnt my hand and eventually had to pull the overheated wire out of the wall with a cloth.
3. The air con was really noisy, a big problem if you are a light sleeper.
Moans over with, the service was excellent. On our return to Bangkok we paid twice the price for a really posh hotel, the service was much better at Swana. Room service food is excellent value. Extra services like laundry are reasonable for a hotel. Included breakfast is limited choice, but good.
Location is good, but not perfect. Its a little out of the tourist heartland, which I was quite happy with, but still only a 10-15 min walk to Kho San road or a short taxi trip to any spot in the old city.
Reception staff speak reasonable English, but not brilliant. They are very pleasant and helpful though- frankly it was the uniformly positive attitude of the staff that turns my review from just ok to very good.
