The hotel staff were extremely helpful in telling us how to get to different places. They were accommodating my many other ways. The location is extremely convenient and within walking distance of Bangkok's top attractions. There wasn't a breakfast buffet per se, but a choice of eggs, cereal, bread and different fruits and juices were served every morning.

From the moment we arrived the entire staff was completely helpful. Additionally, it's on the river near the pier for boat transport, centrally located right next to Wat Pho and the Royal Palace, and near a little rooftop bar. Couldnt be better!

We had a one-night stop in Bangkok on the way back from the beach. We chose this hotel because it was close to Wat Pho temple. We were glad we did! Very nice staff, comfortable, clean rooms (not large, but fine). It's right near the river, just steps from the temple. Plenty to do around there. Great staff! Helped us... More
