I’m still not quite sure what to think of this hotel. The design is very stylish although very masculine, almost cold and the atmosphere is quite strange. It was almost like staying in a fashionable bar that’s entertaining for a while but in the end not very comfortable or fun.
The room was a standard Bangkok size but in the twin room the single beds were very small so my feet hung off the end of the bed. The room was white and grey but with poetry in Thai written on the wall.
The walls of the room are very thin so expect to hear most of what’s going on in the room next door and it’s even louder in the bathroom.
Check out was a bit of a mess with different staff giving different messages about late check-out and one staff member being quite rude.
The breakfast had strange options, not very good quality and was overpriced, we ate at other places nearby after the experience the first day.
The aircon in the lobby is icy cold. The pool area offers some amusing people watching. The spa was quite decent.
I probably wouldn’t stay here again but if your trip to Bangkok was for the purpose of proximity to the Patpong area the Le Meridien would be a good choice. We stayed there for the Songkran celebrations nearby but wouldn’t recommend it for that purpose because you get attacked with water the minute you leave the hotel which gets tiresome after a few days.
