I booked 2 nights of the Deluxe Room. I gave it an average because it was new and had a clean bathtub and carpeted corridors. It was about 6pm when we checked in after we reached Bangkok on our flight at Survarnabhumi Airport. During the check in process, we were served chilled drinks (probably Yuzu drink). The lobby was quite spacious and had free WiFi and daily papers.
Thirsty after our flight, it was exactly what we needed. And the bell boy took our luggage up to our rooms and set the air conditioner to max and told us about the 4 free bottles of Chang drinking water next to the fridge. The receptionists speak limited English, communication might be a struggle for some.
The room however was quite dim. There weren't enough sockets. For an example there was a water kettle next to one of the king sized beds but it didn't have a socket for us to plug it in. In the entire Deluxe room, only two sockets was found and both of them are behind the 40" LCD TV.
The beds were quite comfy but the pillows are too soft for my preference. Behind the hotel was the construction site of the extension of the Bangkok MRT line. It might get a little noisy sometimes according to the hotel staffs but I have not experienced any noise from the construction site during my stay at Miramar. But I have to mention this, there was this small cockroach had crawled out underneath the bed that we settled it with some toilet paper. This makes me doubt the cleanliness of the room. However the A/C did took a long time to cool the room.
The hotel is located at a pretty strategic location in Yaowarat (Chinatown), walking distance from Mega Plaza (pretty much empty with McDonalds), Thip Samai the famous Pad Thai, T&K Seafood, Wat Pho and Wat Phra Kaew. Therefore taking a taxi is not necessary..
Conclusion, will stay in other hotels if possible unless Yaowarat is your main attraction in your itinerary.
