I stayed in this hotel for leisure purposes for 4 nights on 9 Aug 2013. My reservation was made through Booking.com.
The location is very good as it is located right next to BTS Chong Nonsi Station. Once you leave the train station, you just have to take less than two minutes to get to this hotel on foot. Further to this, there are so many local restaurants surrounding the hotel. You don't have to worry about eating. Room check-in was very smooth. When the receptionist gave me the room key, she told one king-size bed was in my room but when I got into my room, there were two single beds. According to the description shown about this hotel on Booking.com, room payment can be settled by American Express but I was told it couldn't be used for payment. Luckily, I had other credit cards. The receptionist told me the Internet was complimentary for 24 hours but unfortunately, it did costs me THB80 upon my departure. Never mind, it's not a big amount.
The room was fine but a little bit dusty, especially its floor and sofa. The air conditioner is cold enough. On the first day, when I checked the window, I found that it hasn't been locked. For security, I am afraid they have to improve it as it is their responsibility to ensure the room is safe before my arrival. On the forth day, the housekeeping department forgot to refill shower gel in my room. No toothbrush and toothpaste provided during my whole stay. The room safe cannot be unlocked once it is locked but I am lucky enough not to have put anything in it. And most important, its shower stated it run warm water but I am afraid the temperature is like cold water.
Gym room was bad as its running machine seems broken and the weight machine was broken. If you expect to have a good work-out there, you must be very disappointed with it. Swimming pool was very good. You can order drinks and have it near the pool. So relaxing. Room Service is very good and efficient. All items are cheap. A Club Sandwich with French Fries is cheaper than a McDonald's set.
Overall, I am satisfied with the service provided in this hotel. Its room rate is reasonable.
