After extensive online searching, I came across this boutique hotel and booked it on strength of all the positive reviews. I was not disappointed. Even before travelling to Thailand, every question I had was answered promptly and accurately, with good advice tossed in for good measure. If planning a stay here ask for directions and you will be sent a detailed map. The hotel is tucked away in a back lane and difficult to find the first time.
The breakfasts (full English no less!!) are served hot and quickly and if leaving before breakfast is served, they will make sure you get some toast and coffee to get you started. They even recognised our taste in coffee and lowered the octane level to accommodate our palate!
The manager, Kevin is a UK ex-pat with a great sense of humour. He is very helpful with local tourist info and if not familiar with where we were going, would look it up. So often he could be found at all hours, reading his paper at the window couch, ready to answer questions or just visit. We spent 8 days there initially and then returned twice during our month in Thailand. It was like returning home with little touches like extra pillows on the beds without requesting them. They kept whatever luggage we didn't need in storage for us till our return. When plans changed while we were travelling, a simple email asking hotel recommendation was answered promptly and again was great place.
Lots of hot water, good air conditioning, very quiet clean rooms, great breakfast, friendly staff, close to Train and Skytrain stations to name a few of its many qualities. Lots of places to eat but we found a restaurant nearby that we returned to frequently.. Saw Sam Sai after a drink at The Sport Corner just around the corner also on Sukhumvit Soi 20.
Definitely, without a second thought, we would stay here again if ever in Bangkok.
