Citadines on Soi 8 (there are other Citadines on other streets) is really well located at the end of a lively Soi with many good restaurants, 7Elevens and close to a branch of Villa Market a great supermarket popular with ex pats in Thailand. There is a complimentary tuktuk to and from the end of the Soi which is right next to Nana skytrain station. This was really useful if you can't face the ten min walk in the heat especially with the kids and it only ever required a few minutes wait as it doesnt take guests further than the end of the Soi and back.
The apartments do look a little tired when compared to the newer hotels and the decor was plain and a bit faded in areas but for space and cost we were very pleased and happy to overlook the minor issues. We took a two bed apartment and had a small double with good pillows and duvets ( not the huge bed in some mid to upper range rooms), a twin room and small lounge/kitchenette all with separate ac units. The kitchenette was well equipped (fridge/toaster/4 ring cooker/microwave/kettle and utensils/crockery) so it would be easy with the selection of local shops to cook here rather than reheat meals which is sometimes the limit of the kitchenette appliances provided in the apartment hotel rooms. There was a tv/dvd player and unexpectedly a good speed, reliable free wifi service (you get given a password on checking in)
The only downside was the small pool (more like a large plunge pool )with no surrounding seating areas and the limited breakfast options, however again for price and location we were not bothered.
If you are looking for a double room you can probably get a plusher studio elsewhere for not much more but for families or those requiring more space this is a really cost effective option in a great location.
We have stayed in four different hotels in Bangkok with similar facilities but despite the negatives this is the one we will most likely return to .
