Long trip to get here, bad traffic and the site map took us to the right area but not the right place, took some finding, so by 8pm tired and may be a bit grumpy, checked in and the guy took our car some where (parking is not on site and must be paid for) got to the room, didn't quite look like the picture on the internet and the beds were single not a double, ok room but the bathroom was yucky, the floor was covered in water, the shower was full of black mould! I called the reception and asked to move room, a guy came to the room to look and couldn't understand why we weren't happy with the shower being full of black mould, another guy turned up and was much more helpful, he took us to a different room, this one smelled damp and the bathroom ceiling was wet through, 3rd room, was fine, still single beds, but clean and a bit more like the pictures. The next morning I didn't hold out much hope for breakfast, but it was actually really nice, good selection, great view, a cheeky seagull on the air con unit looking in. Great location right on Taksin square, right by the metro, restaurants and bars, so all turned out great in the end. The cartoon theme is a bit creepy and I had to cover the Mickey mouse picture in the bedroom as it was freaky!
