One important thing in advance: At least our tripadvisor map indicated a wrong place: The place is a little more to the south, close to the Jim Thompson House!
Although located in a busy center area, the hotel is located in a quite side street.
Dempending what you want to do, the hotel is a good point of origin for a lot of possibilies: Two sky train lines are very close, what offers a good conetcion to the airport (Airport--> Phaya Thai --> Ratchathewi) and to other regions in the city.
I think the house is more designed for people, who are going to stay some time: There is a well equiped room, with a small cooking area and so on. It's really more than OK, but maybe could use here and there some renovation. We also had some problems with the wifi. After talking to the reception, we got a least connection to some of the wifi-points in the house. The staff is perfectly friendly and obliging! - We stood for only one night and therefore stressed them a lot with the usage of the public bathroom and the guarding of our luggage before check-in and after check-out, but they did not mind the hole time! Furthermore they gave a lot of Information about, how to get around. We hat a quite a good breakfast at the restaurant in the house.
Location: The big shopping Center are within a 5 Min. walk. The train line goes directly to the big market in the north (Catuchak-Park) and many other places.
One thing we recognized: Since for tourists it is much easier to get a Taximeter-taxi from here, it's almost cheaper to get to the center by a taxi from here (70 Baht) to china-town and the anxient center), than by a TukTuk from a hotel in the center (100 Baht).
Generally you should be aware of taxi driver and "friendly" people, who try to cheat you. Only go by taximeter, and don't believe in people telling you that an attraction is closed or you wear the wrong pants....
Our fazit: The Pathumwan House is a great spot for sightseeing in Bangkok for a fair amount of money. We would go there again (maybe for longer than one night ;))
