i can't help but think that the room we stayed in, "a junior suite," was a bit on the small side, having been in Bangkok before. The Novotel is nice and elegant even if most of the features were functional. The bath had a glass wall that could be made transparent or opaque with one touch of a button - a welcome feature for people traveling with friends or other people other than their significant other. = )
the hotel is located on the quieter end of Silom, a good 15-20 minute walk from the Sala Daeng, where all the action is, however there's always a convenience store and nice restaurants nearby.
Service is good, but could be better - anyone travelling to a non-english country would know how frustrating it is to talk to the staff for anything. I wonder why Novotel hasn't trained their staff better at handling english-speaking guests.
all in all it was a good stay.
