When you arrive at the airport, right inside the airport, for under $2 you can take the extremely clean and frequent 'City Line' train to the Thaya Thai stop, the last stop of the airport to Bangkok train. The hotel is down a very long block and around a corner from there. I walked with my huge suitcase and backpack and I'm 50 years old and have leg problems; point is, if you want, you can walk it. If not, just jump in a tuk tuk and you'll be there in a minute.
This is rated as a 4 1/2 star hotel. I loved it. Clean, large, international. It is like a chain, but nicer that the Hiltons I've been in, and it's new. The MASSIVE included breakfast (get a deal on Expedia) had everything and anything you could possibly want. Everyone is extremely nice and jumps to your every need.
The pool looked fabulous but I didn't use it. I jumped on their very frequent and round trip tuk tuk from the hotel, 1 minute, to the BTS train stop which, if you make one switch, takes you to the huge river with all the river taxi's on it which is fun and cheap (like 25 cents a ride to the Palace, the shops, the museum, the temples....). The train can also take you a block away from Jim Thompsons house, the Silk King. An interesting house tour and beautiful silk scarf store. After you've spent the whole day in the heat and rain and you are exhausted, it is so great to come back to this hotel! The tub was HUGE and there is even a 'line' in the bathroom to hang your washed clothes! I was impressed with this, as it is very useful, but you wouldn't expect it in such a fancy place as this.
I wish the room was a little larger but I would not call it small. The TV sound was VERY low, but they sent someone up to fix it immediately. Free Wifi. The room I got with breakfast for 5 nights on Expedia cost me around $85 a night with free FULL breakfast and Wifi, which of course is ridiculously cheap for such an exceptional place.
The dinner food in the restaurant I went in, on the ground floor, was not so great, but with a $10 gift certificate I was given on top of everything else, it was free. Also, I thought the prices in their restaurants were very high (the nicer ones), so I bought my own food at the supermarket in the shopping 'mall' that is right where the tuk tuk drops you off to get the BTS train and put it in the fridge in the room.
When I travel I see EVERYTHING, so at night I'm shot as all get out. Going back to this hotel at the end of the day was a dream.
Please note, it's not near any of the top tourists sights (except for one across the street, which is actually worth seeing, a nobles house and their museum collection), so you have to take the train or a cab/tuk tuk to get anywhere but that was a minor inconvenience. The Oriental which is nearer to 'the sights' is around $300 a night and does not include anything; it's up to you!
