Beyond the grand lobby is a place that is cold and unfriendly.
1. The washing machine/dryer does not work. We had to call the folks several time to fiddle with the knobs on the dryer: once 3 people came one after the other over 3 or 4 hours. The clothes were still semi dry and had to be left do dry by the window.
2. Noise: There is no traffic noise since it is on a side road which is very quiet. The noise is from inside the hotel: It is a two room (bedroom and a kitchenette with a 2 seater dining table) affair. Though the kitchen is next to the door/aisle: noise from the aisle came through easily: possibly due to gaps in the door. The washing machine makes a lot of noise and we had to switch if off while sleeping.
3. Internet is very slow. Our skype calls were not clear and kept dropping.
4. Breakfast: not a good spread for folks who do not eat Chinese food for b/f.
5.The BTS station (Chitlom) is a 10 minute walk. The Rajadamri BTS is 4 minutes away.
6.Non Smoking: They will put you in a smoking room without checking with you. If you are a NS, insist on a NS room.
7. Pool: though it is a huge one, water is cold since it is in the shade all day.
On all these counts (proximity to BTS, friendliness, room size, amenities and costs) we found the Cape House which is close to be much better. We had stayed there last time and we would prefer to stay there the next time. It was fully booked this time.
